Notes/Commercial Description:
With nearly one pound of real fruit per gallon, Alaskan Raspberry Wheat has the inviting aroma of fresh-picked raspberries and an enticing red hue. The flavor of the raspberries lends a tartness that balances the full-bodied wheat profile and malt sweetness. Bigger than most traditional fruit beers, Alaskan Raspberry Wheat adds an extra kick to its dry and effervescent finish.

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl, Minneapolis
This has a strong raspberry aroma over hops and light wheat.
A slightly hazy reddish gold under a creamy white finely bubbled 1/2" foam cap.
Palate: big raspberry but the malt tastes a little thin with a suggestion of solvent and the tartness from the raspberries is not very noticeable. The keg or beer lines may be off.
Medium low body, medium high carbonation.
