Postmortem Brew Review
Straw yellow
Raspberry fruit flavor on the nose.
  No malt or hops detectable in smell.
Minimal off-white soapy head. Zero lacing on the glass.

Mostly raspberry tastes comes through with little hops or malt.
Abundant amount of carbonation.
Light fruit flavored, light watery mouth feel. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Sea Dog's
Raspberry Wheat Ale is the best of their fruit flavored beers to date.  It has a little less carbonation than the others and is listed as an ale rather than a beer.  The raspberry flavors taste slightly artificial.  The ale is also a bit watery, but the fruit taste of raspberries are abundant.

To its credit, it is light and refreshing.  And at 4.5% ABV it goes down easy and doesn't leave you feeling weighed down.
