Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 06-28-2003

Our Raspberry Hefeweizen is a true fruit beer, not a fruit-flavored beer. We add pureed raspberries to our Hefeweizen during the primary fermentation process. Although we add no sugar, color or flavors, the resulting beer is a hazy pink color, with citrus aromas from the wheat and a flavor that is neat and tart. While this beer is low in bitterness, it is not overwhelmingly sweet, making it a thoroughly drinkable beer for the season.

In Belgium, fruit beers are quite popular and brewers often include wheat, along with malted barley. While our Raspberry Hefeweizen is not a true Belgian fruit beer, we have carried on the tradition of adding real fruit to fermenting beer. Today, many beers with fruit character are made with a fruit extract; we prefer to use the actual fruit to avoid any chemical or artificially sweet undertones in the beer.

Fresh red raspberries in the nose. The tartness more so than the flavor of them sits on the wheat foundation. Subtle fruit/sugar appears in the finish. Interesting take on the hefeweizen style, and the malt itself is solid, but the raspberriness makes it hard to imagine looking forward to opening a second.
