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.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bomber. Poured pink-tinted medium orange with a fluffy beige head. The aroma picked up sweet toasted grains and raspberry meat with accents of tart raspberry seeds and faint vinegar.. very fruity. The flavor found roasted grains and honey at the core, with tart raspberry seeds, tangy wheat, and some botanicals around.. finished with more sour seeds and a little too much residual sugar. Light-medium bodied and tangy on the palate with a refreshing feel to it.. this was very drinkable.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2012
22oz bomber. Unfiltered glowing red-orange with a creamy, thin off-white/pinkish head. This is probably one of the better raspberry beers I’ve had. Fresh red raspberry taste, a touch of rindy dryness, along with some mellow wheat, and a very smooth meidum body. Not hoppy, not sour..pleasantly unique and non-gimmicky. Simple in it’s essence, but one to appreciate if you’ve had countless subpar raspberry beers.

Bomber from Bevmo Valencia. Nose is heavy raspberries with a bit of banana. Lightly hazy rusty copper with a big cream head. Flavor is a raspberry jam sandwich, lightly sweet with a hint of white pepperiness.

A solid raspberry beer right here. Not perfect but thank god they didn’t over sweeten it as is the tendency.

drjay44 (2638) - Salida, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2012
651 (only in Alaska) ml. bottle. Pours a medium off white, well retained head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy reddish amber (SRM 13) body.....nose is light malts, with hints of toast, cereal, raspberry.......taste is raspberry, wheat malts, finishing just short of dry....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds foamy quality. This is a very nice fruit beer. It is not particularly complex, with the raspberry was used just enough to be present, but not enough to totally dominate the simple malts. It was not at all astringent which can be an effect from raspberry used in large quantities, and it is quite refreshing. I wonder how much they have varied the recipe since its initial release. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

The fruit on the nose of this beer is AMAZING! You can tell how much raspberries are in the recipe. My wife approves of it as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SHIG (3587) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle: Poured a reddish orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is raspberry fruit, light honey, and wheat. Taste is nice fruit berry up front with that raspberry, switches to a nice grain and wheat finish. Not overpowering syrup fruit like a lot of American flavored wheat, which makes this very nice.
