i just brewed my 3rd batch and its rasberry wheat. it was bottled on thursday jan 26 and im noticing a film that almost looks oily at the top of the water line in the bottle. should i be worried or is this just possibly the rasberry flavoring that was added to the beer before bottleing???

It sounds like it is the rasberry(oily film).
Cheers! J.R.

I second the notion that it is raspberry oil. Everything should go as planned.
