UFO Raspberry HefeweizenUFO Raspberry Hefeweizen

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

Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a UFO hefeweizen glass. Bottle says enjoy by 12/15/13...bought it mid-march 14. Whatever, here we go...

A: Cloudy raspberry hued amber color. A little head from the pour, quickly receded to a fizzy ring at glass edge, no lace.

S: Raspberries, duh! Cannot detect the typical aromas of hefeweizen...but the raspberries, wow, it just smells awesome. Also some hints of citrus, but not distinct.

T: Raspberries dominate the flavors, slightly sour too. Toward the end the typical here characters come in, but not distinctly. Just a nice malty complement to the finish. I was hoping to see more of the typical clove and spice phenols in the flavor, but the beer is so refreshing in the taste, that they really aren't missed.

M: Medium mouthfeel with lots of carbonation, with a sharpish bite. There is an acidic character on the palate as well.

O: This is a great raspberry beer. The sour character makes this really refreshing, and enjoyable. This might be an awesome complement to a late breakfast or even brunch, or for a lazy Saturday afternoon session. Recommended!
