Bent River's Raspberry Wheat is definitely a fruity beer. It smells very sweet and carries a strong aroma of raspberries (duh). This is a very sweet beer. It isn't a beer where you can taste a hint of raspberry. The raspberry flavor is overwhelming, which isn't necessarily bad. It is very easy to drink. This is also a "girly" beer, my girlfriend was the one who wanted to try it. I'm not embarrassed to say that it was a pretty tasty beer though.

Darker in color than most in this style, good head formation and retention. Little to no nose character. Sweet and acidic on the pallet, not unpleasant but a bit harsh. Not great.

Medium body with low bitterness. Light raspberry smell and flavor add for a pleasant change from a beer.
