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: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Nearly opaque hazy orange, with a small, peristent white head, thick, fine-beaded, unbroken lacing, and smoderate carbonation.

Aroma: Very sweet, strong note of candied raspberries, moderate noble hops, and a strong wheat malt presence.

Taste: Begins with a tart, juicy raspberry note, against the backdrop of slightly spicy wheat malt. As the taste progresses, the tartness of the raspberries intensifies and a wave of hop bitterness follows on. Finishes with a slight, dry, lingering raspberry presence.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, pleasant, perhaps a bit thin.

Drinkability/notes: A very nice, refreshing summer beer.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at HEB in Texas in June of 2013, $7.99 for a six-pack of twelve-ounce bottles.
