This beer is a crisp, easy drinking wheat beer with a fruity raspberry taste to it. A nice cottage beer to have on those hot summer days. Very smooth and refreshing. Typical opaqueness of any wheat beer, with a 1cm white head that dissipates.

Purchased at the LCBO for just around that $2.50 mark for a 473ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a tiny head that is gone in seconds. Rather Dark gold. Almost has a redness to it. Filtered clear

S- Oodles of raspberry. This thing just oozes raspberries.

T- Raspberries but in a controlled way. Yes it overpowers the beer but that is what they designed in the taste. Very refreshing

M- Crisp and tart. Nice and dry. No sliminess at all like other raspberry beer's I've had.

O- Rather refreshing raspberry beer. Very interesting and has a lot of pop. Will buy again

Food Pairing

This pretty good little beer went well with...... Lamb burgers. Nice little bit of cranberry sauce to get that sourness going then some lettuce, pickle and onion.

Enjoy

tap at the brewery

Pours a clear gold with a white lacing.

Aroma is of medicinal raspberry and strawberry.

Flavor is of bitter medicinal mixed berries and some light wheat malt.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A somewhat offputting fruit beer. The berries approach cough syrup flavors. It's not terrible, but I wouldn't choose to have it again.

This is a great chick beer. Pretty good on the patio in the summertime. Easy drinking wheat with a scent of raspberry.
