ABV: 4.8% | IBUS: 10 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“The scent of fresh rasp­ber­ries, along with a sub­tle bready aroma. The taste of the fruit com­ple­ments the beer nicely; nei­ther over­whelms the other. There is a faint sweet­ness on the palate, which fin­ishes cleanly in a semi-dry, tart fin­ish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big jammy rasp­berry aroma with a faint cracker malt char­ac­ter. A slight per­ceiv­able tart­ness, giv­ing it a Swee­t­art-like char­ac­ter. The fruit shines through very nicely.” Fla­vor: “Rasp­berry, start to fin­ish. The base wheat beer doesn’t get in the way of the fruit. A nice tart­ness and de­cent car­bon­a­tion heighten the fruiti­ness. Mod­er­ate sweet­ness with very low bit­ter­ness and low to mod­er­ate acid­ity. Dry. Bright rasp­berry char­ac­ter with just enough beer be­neath to sup­port.” Over­all: “Rasp­berry char­ac­ter is nice, al­though the bal­ance may be far too fruity for some. The beer isn’t overly sweet, and there’s some nice acid­ity com­ing through from the fruit. Just enough beer to re­mind you it’s still beer. Very light and re­fresh­ing! This is well done, and the fruit seems fresh. ”
