Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
With nearly one pound of real fruit per gallon, Alaskan Raspberry Wheat has the inviting aroma of fresh-picked raspberries and an enticing red hue. The flavor of the raspberries lends a tartness that balances the full-bodied wheat profile and malt sweetness. Bigger than most traditional fruit beers, Alaskan Raspberry Wheat adds an extra kick to its dry and effervescent finish.

Wheat smelling aroma with a hint of raspberries. Raspberry flavor right up front mixes well with the wheat profile. I'd like to see a little more raspberry flavoring. Overall a good balance with a little bitterness towards the end.

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl, Minneapolis
This has a strong raspberry aroma over hops and light wheat.
A slightly hazy reddish gold under a creamy white finely bubbled 1/2" foam cap.
Palate: big raspberry but the malt tastes a little thin with a suggestion of solvent and the tartness from the raspberries is not very noticeable. The keg or beer lines may be off.
Medium low body, medium high carbonation.
