Jackie O's Razz Wheat (8/10)

Jackie O's Pub and Brewery is located in Athens, Ohio, and produces this raspberry wheat beer.

Razz Wheat pours a slightly purple color with a finger-thick white head that lingers a while.

The aroma is unmistakably raspberry, with a hint of yeast.

The flavor betrays the aroma.  While it's certainly mild and there is some hint of raspberry to it, the raspberry flavor is extremely subtle.  If it weren't for the aroma, you might have trouble identifying this as anything but a standard wheat beer.  As such, it's still a very pleasant beer and easy to enjoy.

Beer Advocate rates Jackie O's Razz Wheat an 87 or "good".  Rate Beer gives it a 56 overall.

I tried this on draft at The Daily Growler in Upper Arlington on Sunday (March 24, 2013).

ABV: 5%
IBU: Unknown but I'd estimate around 15-18
My Rating: 8/10
