BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: Fruit and Field Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.10%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Raspberry Hefeweizen is a true fruit beer, not a fruit-flavored beer. We add pureed raspberries to our Hefeweizen during the primary fermentation process. Although we add no sugar, color or flavors, the resulting beer is a hazy pink color, with citrus aromas from the wheat and a flavor that is neat and tart. While this beer is low in bitterness, it is not overwhelmingly sweet, making it a thoroughly drinkable beer for the season.

In Belgium, fruit beers are quite popular and brewers often include wheat, along with malted barley. While our Raspberry Hefeweizen is not a true Belgian fruit beer, we have carried on the tradition of adding real fruit to fermenting beer. Today, many beers with fruit character are made with a fruit extract; we prefer to use the actual fruit to avoid any chemical or artificially sweet undertones in the beer.

Around a medium body,plenty of carbonation that seemed to dissipate fairly fast. Aroma was grain,yeast,raspberry, and some malt. The taste was dry,far from being sweet,with the grain being forward. The berry wasn't artificial but also didn't show up that strong either. It didnt work well for me,lacked in flavor and body

Pours a murky golden color that smells like Raspberry Jam. Almost no head with no lacing. Lots of carbonation. Tastes of wheat and raspberries. For a fruit beer, this is not overly sweet which is nice to see. Crisp feeling like I have just drank carbonated raspberry juice. Overall, as a fruit beer, its nice to have once in a while. Refreshing to drink, even if just one bottle. I would still reach for something a bit more "traditional" if given the choice, but this beer is very drinkable and I would recommend it highly.

A bubble filled crisper beer with a pinch of raspberry

Taste Rating in Words: It's waking up to watch the sunrise while eating a piece of toast with raspberry jam spread thinly over it.
