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

A:As soon as I poured this beer I was looking forward to drinking it because of the red tint that the beer had. The color is an light orange-brown with a tint of red. The head is slightly off-white and doesn't have much retention.
S:Big raspberry smell up front with just a little bit of sweetness in the end. The sweetnesse seems a little artifical, like sweet'n low, but this isn't really a negative.
T:Up front is the raspberry flavor. It is actually quite mild but still dominates the front of the palate. There is a little bit of a wheat flavor, or course it's like a hefeweizen. In the middle there is a little bit of tartness and it ends with a little bit of sweetness to balance out the tartness.
MF:It has a medium body with average amount of carbonation. It feels good in the mouth.
D:It's a very drinkable beer. It's light and refreshing. The raspberry goes really well with the hefeweizen and does not try to over power it.
