Appearance: gold with a hazy tint. Light head and little to no carbonation. Smell: smell is deliteful. I'm getting wheat with hints of raspberries coming through. Taste: medium body, malt in forefront with raspberries hints coming in on the end. Floral notes after. Overall: decent wheat beer. The smell got me excited and I was a tiny bit disappointed by the taste but it was still ok.

Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, rose-tinted copper coloring with a filmy head. Nose of subtle raspberry tart and sweet, and not much else. Flavors are sugary raspberry forward, with a very tart end note. Toasted, grainy backbone. The palate just seems off-balanced for my taste. Light, crisp bodied, with a tangy, sugary aftertaste. Cloying, lingering finish.
