I had this on tap at McMenamin's on High St., Eugene, OR. I had to label it as a wheat ale, but it isn't - BA wouldn't let me chose "Fruit/Vegetable Beer" as a choice for some reason. But it's a fruit beer. It was a pale pinkish color, very similar to the color of pink lemonade or grapefruit juice. It didn't have a head or any lacing. It smelled mainly of raspberry and yeast. It had a lot more of the yeast in the taste than fruit and tasted more like a kolsch than a fruit beer. Drinkable and refreshing, but kind of tasteless.
