Have had this on a few occasions on tap over the years, decided on a home bottle to do a proper review
A - clear bubbly light golden, two fingers of head retained well with an endless stream of rising carbonation
S - seems to be dominated by an adjunct and slightly sour smell, some mild raspberry tartness
T - bread malt and light leafy crisp hops, sweetness & tartness of raspberry is gentle and well blended, not as prominent as I would like but still well integrated
M - light and effervescent, crisp and lightly sweet, slightly bready finish
O - I like my fruit beers to be a little more in your face but this is a nicely balanced effort with malt, hop, and fruit flavours in harmony, definitely an easy drinker

Served a clear golden colour with a hint of pink. Small frozen raspberries floating in the beer. Bready malt aroma, light tartness from the fruit. Light malt flavour, a bit grainy, the raspberries really do hide in the background, mild tart finish. Crisp, medium bodied mouthfeel. A decent patio beer, the fruit is mellow, and this seems to have a bit more backbone than the blueberry wheat ale.
