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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

on sale for just under 7 bucks. pours a really thick and cloudy purpley brown color with a pretty excited off white head ab out 2 inches tall. it smelled like raspberry jam, sweet and homemade, but not fresh berries. there was also a surprisingly bold malt profile to this, biscuity, like dessert. the flavor was a little weird i thought, bright berry taste at first, fading to a sweet english malt sweetness. there is also quite a bit of fruity yeast to this as well, which gives it a unique mouthfeel. i wasnt in love with the feel though, its pretty dense for a fruity wheat beer, and the yeast makes it even heavier. carbonation was good. this was a fun beer overall, but i dont think it totally came together in an amazing way. still, always glad to try their pilot series stuff.
