BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Harpoon Brewery & Beer Hall
Massachusetts, United States

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
We have added natural raspberry flavor to our UFO Hefeweizen to create this beer. Consistent with the hefeweizen style, this beer is unfiltered and cloudy with a solid foamy head. UFO Raspberry has a distinctive, hazy rose color. The scent of fresh raspberries hits the nose immediately, along with a subtle bready aroma from the wheat and yeast. The body is light and the unfiltered yeast provides a soft mouthfeel. The taste of the fruit compliments the beer nicely, neither overwhelms the other. There is a faint sweetness on the palate, which finishes cleanly in a semi-dry, tart finish.

10 IBU

A beer with a refreshing tart raspberry taste that is better than the huckleberry one the brewery also offers. Almost perfect for summer days not to light and not to heavy on the raspberry.

Bottle from a Lazy dog
Hazy light golden color with a smallish whit head that dissipates quickly. Huge raspberry on the nose absolutely too pungent to be real berries or they would be more vinous as they fermented out. Not much hefe character but its a really cleanly brewed raspberry wine cooler, I mean beer cooler, oops.
