A 330ml bottle with a BB of July 2014, so it's just out of date. Picked up a while back from Trembling Madness in York. The label describes it as a cloudy wheat beer blended with raspberry juice.

A: Poured into a straight pint glass. Bottle conditioned and exceptionally lively - bit of a gusher. A very hazy pinkish-red hue with tons of fine sediment and intense carbonation. Produces a huge head of creamy light-pink foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a thick surface layer.

S: Aroma of tart, juicy raspberries with hints of fruity sweetness, earthy yeast, subtle wheat and a touch of husky grain. Dominated by raspberry but I'm not complaining.

T: Tastes of sharp raspberries with a juicy character and a dry finish. Notes of raspberry, fruit sugar, earthy yeast, mild wheat, a hint of grain, faint stewed leaves and a twinge of cardboard in the background. Dry and well-attenuated, yet possessed of a fruity sweetness. A lingering yeastiness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with pleasant carbonation and good body. Slightly astringent, followed by an aftertaste of tart raspberries, earthy yeast and faint wheat.

O: Nice enough, though a tad one-dimensional. Probably best for warm weather drinking. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are primarily influenced by raspberry juice and dry yeast. A touch of sweetness in the background. Decent body. Subtle off-notes in the flavour. This doesn't come across as any kind of genuine hefe - more like a standard wheat ale with added fruit. Pleasant for what it is but no need to seek it out.

330ml, bottle-conditioned. bb July14. Bottle gushed on opening. However, the poured beer settled well in the glass to reveal the most attractive colour I have seen in a beer. Red! Loose thick head, crystal clear. smell: raspberry. taste: raspberry, effervescent in mouth. It does taste like a hefeweizen, mysteriously without the usual cloudiness. mouthfeel: light with plenty of carbonation. overall: Superbly refreshing. A light-drinking beer with a real taste of raspberries. A winner.
