Appearance is grapefruity in color. The smell is a nice blend of fruit and brew. This beer was fresh from the tap just April 7, 2012. Taste was not offensive and somewhat inviting.Great on the aftertaste. Fresh and clean on the tongue. Mouthfeel is very light and crisp. Overall this is a nice drinking fruit beer that many blended drinkers will like. Great with the pork sliders.

Pours a nice hazy grapefruit amber like color with a slightly off white frothy head which gives way to decent lacing. The aroma is of tart raspberries and a little sweetness. The flavor is of a nice tart raspberry over the top of sweet malt and wheat. The mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation. The drinkability is good, you can easily make this your session beer, its an easy drink, but the flavor isn't all the complex.

On tap at the brewpub.

Pours a hazy light amber (actually just about berry colored) with a thin pink tinged head that left a fizzy retention around the edges and a bit of lacing behind. The aroma is light raspberry accents and some other residual sweetness but not much else.

The taste is malty sweetness with a tinge of raspberry flavoring behind it. There is actually a surpising bit of a hop bite towards the finish. The mouthfeel is fairly light but it does possess a sharp and poppy carbonation that gives the overall feel some pizazz.

This used to be my go to back when I used to frequent this place during happy hour on the weekends. Unfortunatley that was back before I knew what better beer was. Still, the crisp feel and easy drinkibility of this will quench the thirst after a hot day on the beach.

Round 4: A pleasant surprise after the poor showing of the Unfiltered Wheat. Likely the same brew as the unfiltered wheat beer, but the raspberries give the brew extra and needed flavors, complexity, fruitiness, freshness, and a distraction from the weaker wheat characteristics. Looks like ruby red grapefruit juice with a timid foamstand and fair lacing. Raspberry flavor and aromas are mild, but constant. The body feels creamy and fresh, while remaining light on the palate. Finishes with a lingering raspberry and bready flavor. Nice beer. Very comparable to Abita Purple Haze.

Appears a light gold with steady streams of carbonation rising to the top. There is a tiny head and just a tiny bit of lacing that manages to stick around.
The smell is actually of the real raspberries, as advertised.
Taste is of refreshing wheat and real raspberries.
Mouthfeel is light bodied and refreshing with a gentle sweetness and crispness that is perfect for the hot weather.
Drinkability is nice. This refresher is great for these hot August days in Myrtle Beach.
