BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Schlafly Tap Room
Missouri, United States

Style: Fruit / Vegetable 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.

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.

DATE: June 4, 2016... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephan weizen... OCCASION: chilling and grilling with the boys after two baseball wins... pours an extremely cloudy tan body that reveals some sediment at the glass';s bottom and variably sized bubbles... opaque otherwise... head is a thick two fingers that settles to a soapy white bowl... clear banana with some tart raspberry and wheat esters that suggest earthiness... sharp, tart immediacy that sours the aftertaste for an appreciable time... on second sip, the banana and hay come through, mellowing the impact of the raspberry puree... refreshing and forward, with a larger flavor than 4.1% ABV would suggest... slight lacing in the glass... the suggestion of cracker at its end would suggest malts? effervescent and spritzy in its palate, like an Italian soda... I could easily reach for this if summer slamming was on the party menu, if not for the tartness that does not relent as the glass drains... some candied suggestions leave the finish of the bottle with a medicinal quality... a palpable graininess rounds off the experience, and I am left thinking this is somewhere between styles... okay for a surprise in a craft box 12-off, but not one I would seek out....
