BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Alaskan Brewing Co.
Alaska, United States
alaskanbeer.com

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Pours a clear copper color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is decent to good. Lacing is good. Has a mainly raspberry aroma with hints of wheat. Strong raspberry taste with a wheat edge. A little bready. Like I would expect from this beer. Decent. Not bad. Not great. Light bodied with mild to moderate carbonation.
