Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a half inch fluffy white head. The head dissipates quickly leaving a thin layer of foam resting on top.
The aroma is unusual. Wheat and berry scents are what I am getting off the aroma.
The taste is just as unique as the aroma. Wheat flavors quickly blend into a berry type flavor that continues into the finish. The berry reminds me of raspberry. Some clove and honey like sweetness in the finish.
Light body with medium carbonation. Watery and smooth mouthfeel with a very drinkable nature.
An enjoyable summer beer. Very drinkable and refreshing. The raspberry flavors are nice for a change and adds a little something extra on a hot summer day.
