Alaska, United States

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.

on sale for just under 7 bucks. pours a really thick and cloudy purpley brown color with a pretty excited off white head ab out 2 inches tall. it smelled like raspberry jam, sweet and homemade, but not fresh berries. there was also a surprisingly bold malt profile to this, biscuity, like dessert. the flavor was a little weird i thought, bright berry taste at first, fading to a sweet english malt sweetness. there is also quite a bit of fruity yeast to this as well, which gives it a unique mouthfeel. i wasnt in love with the feel though, its pretty dense for a fruity wheat beer, and the yeast makes it even heavier. carbonation was good. this was a fun beer overall, but i dont think it totally came together in an amazing way. still, always glad to try their pilot series stuff.

Wonderful aromatic beer with hint of raspberry tartness but not to tart and some other floral notes i couldnt pinpoint but smells quite nice and the taste doesn't disappoint either had the good fortune to be at The Mad Hatter in Stillwater Minnesota and always has great taps like the amazing beers being put out of Alaskan Brewery so if you enjoy beers brewed with fruit give it a shot
