Notes/Commercial Description:
We have added natural raspberry flavor to our UFO Hefeweizen to create this beer. Consistent with the hefeweizen style, this beer is unfiltered and cloudy with a solid foamy head. UFO Raspberry has a distinctive, hazy rose color. The scent of fresh raspberries hits the nose immediately, along with a subtle bready aroma from the wheat and yeast. The body is light and the unfiltered yeast provides a soft mouthfeel. The taste of the fruit compliments the beer nicely, neither overwhelms the other. There is a faint sweetness on the palate, which finishes cleanly in a semi-dry, tart finish.

10 IBU

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a nice dark orange/copper red with a decent amount of head and no lacing whatsoever. I let this beer sit for a couple minutes and the carbonation rose and seemed to make the beer darker near the top, so it went from an orange (on the bottom) to a copper (on the top). There is no head after the first few sips and no lacing. The head does reappear, however, when you swirl the beer.

The smell is definitely of raspberries and wheat. You can almost smelled the carbonation as well and can tell its going to be light.

The taste is a very tingly delicious. The first thing I noticed was the beer dancing around my tongue and mouth from the carbonation. I also detected a hint of bitterness.

The mouthfeel is all about the raspberries and carbonation. Maybe a little tart to top everything off. Very easy drink to enjoy.

I recommend this beer, especially when sitting outside on a nice day watching the sun go down.

3.5/5  rDev -2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Serving: Bottle poured into a pint glass.

Disclaimer: First time with a hefeweizen, fruit flavored or otherwise. Not sure what to expect.

Appearance:
No head, bubbles rising from the bottom. Towards the end gave it kind of a wild pour and nada. Murky apricot color.

Smell:
Grapefruit, obvious raspberry, unidentified citrus. Yeast

Taste:
Yeast. Citrus. Raspberries. Super soft gentle floral and citrus hop at the end – almost an afterthought.
What is that aftertaste? My God! Fruit loops.

Mouthfeel:
Fizzy, crisp, slightly powdery. More like a wine than a beer.

Overall: Very drinkable and accessible. Would recommend for a non-beer drinker.
