Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Not a bad brew. I enjoyed it straight from the bottle but I can imagine pouring it into a glass to see the color would be nice. The smell was not as attractive as I wa hoping. I personally would go for a Shock Top Raspberry Wheat over this product. This is a great summertime beer that offers good taste and refreshment. One of Schlafly's better beers in my opinion.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of sour raspberries. taste is tart, raspberry, a bit of wheat, kind of lacking any flavors you would expect in a "hefeweizen" profile. feels medium bodied in the mouth and while I wouldn't want a steady diet of it, it's not bad.

Single bottle poured into a pint glass. 10/28

Pours a darkish pink brown. Fake looking, off color. Light fruity sweetness apparent. Pixie stickish, Fruit forward taste, some subdued tartness. Odd bitter. Then a clear close, more watered than anything. Label says 'real fruit' but I'm not a believer. Not quite right.

I'm a huge fanboy of Schlafly, but this one just isn't for me.

Overall, I think it was a good idea, but there is something artificial tasting about this.

There is a solid wheat base in this beer, but the raspberries muddy this and make it a failing beer.
