From sample glass at the brewery.

Nice raspberry aroma dominant with some tart wheat notes in the background. Poured cloudy orange with decent amount of off-white head with some lacing.

Fairly clean american wheat beer flavor with subtle raspberry flavor. Not very sweet. Lack of sweetness allowed raspberry favor to come through pretty well. Slight astringency in flavor.

Seemed to be very similar beer to Lengthwise's Harvest Moon Wheat beer, but fermented with Amercian yeast as opposed to a German hefeweizen yeast. Somewhat bitter finish.

Moderate carbonation. Medium-light body. Somewhat astringent mouthfeel

Decent, but I've had far better fruit/wheat beers.

Poured on tap at the brewery into a pint glass. The beer has a dark, cloudy pale-yellow color, with no head. The beer was extremely heavy on the nose with raspberries. It was reminiscent of Lindeman's Framboise in aroma. On tasting, the beer has a very muted raspberry flavor when compared to the nose. Increased carbonation, again reminiscent more of a lambic than a raspberry wheat. My wife and I both mentioned that as much as the smell might excite the senses, the taste equally disappoints. The beer is not overly pleasant in mouth, with a sharpness due to the carbonation levels, and an overall lack of body. The increased carbonation and lack of taste make this a beer not likely to be nominated for mass consumption.

Sample at the brewpub: Cloudy gold/yellow color with a thin white head and thin spotty lacing. Aroma of raspberries and wheat, surprisingly enough. Light body with tart raspberry, wheat and malt flavors. The finish is fruity and wheaty, with the raspberry lingering. This beer is pretty good all around.
