Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: taez555 on 03-01-2006

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.

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.
