COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alaskan Raspberry Wheat is an American-style Wheat Ale that highlights the bright flavors and inviting aroma of more than 3,000 pounds of real raspberries added during fermentation. Years of local demand through Alaskan’s Rough Draft program of draft-only releases and a Silver medal from the 2008 Great American Beer Festival make Alaskan Raspberry Wheat the perfect brew to launch the Alaskan Pilot Series.

Ratman197 (10720) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of raspberry, wheat and white brad. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of raspberry, wheat and white bread with a smooth lingering raspberry finish.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is murky light to medium orange-brown. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), with a strong note of raspberries. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic, lightly to moderately astringent. Well, it certainly smells like raspberries, I will give it that. Some grain too, but not much else in the nose and thus it kinda comes off more like a soda pop. Surprisingly sour, and very bitter (as if from seeds, not hops) as well, totally crushing the sweetness. Unbalanced and harsh, somewhat astringent too. Pretty typical quality for this brewery, sadly.

marcus (7230) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours reddish orange with a decent beige head that doesn’t last and a, guess what, raspberry aroma. You can really taste the raspberries in this one, although the wheat base is a bit harsh. Very carbonated and tasty.

RSRIZZO (1876) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2010
22oz bottle poured into a Flute at 38°. Color is a reddish amber with light carbonation and a small tight white head. Aroma is a bright fresh raspberry scent. It has a light body with a crisp clean mouth feel. Flavor of fresh raspberries and a touch of wheat then a very mild bitterness. After taste is clean with a light dry feel coming out of the bitterness. Overall this is a very tasty fruit wheat, one of the best I can recall having.

jtclockwork (10308) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Bottle thanks to Wavers1. Pours clear juicy red with white head. Nose of raspberries, grain and wheat. Taste is dry raspberry tart, wheat and grain. A bit grainy.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Bottle: Pours a ruby red amber color with a nice white head. The nose is lightly fruity with a slight rough wheat and toasted barley note. Some hops and raspberry shine in the flavor and a tart but dry and thin finish follow. Quite well designed, but poorly executed. Needs a little more of something, none of the stars want to take the lead role here.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2010
new bomber from bottle shop. Nice and bubbly with just a subtle hint of the raspberry. Not overbearing.
