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.

On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours pale pinkish amber. Aroma is fruit, yeah raspberries. Taste is initial sharp tartness with raspberries in the finish. Pleasant wheat body. Aftertaste is lingering tart that slowly fades into sour. Not bad, and refreshingly not crazy sweet. Probably not worth the pricey bottle fee.

Bottle. Murky orange and pink color with a small white. Not the best looking. Lots of raspberry jam in the aroma. That really is all I’m getting. Taste has much more wheat character, slight raspberry, and a crisp finish. Not overly impressed with this as it cost $10 for a 22oz bottle. Would be much better if that was the cost for a 6-pack.

Matts_Property (831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper orange with a creamy white head. Aroma of raspberry, wheat and bread. Flavour the same but with a muted finish. Nothing special.

Not super sweet but definite raspberry taste. Definitely more tart than sweet. I think it hard to get the right balance for a fruit beer, this is one of the stronger flavored of the fruit wheat beers that I have had that isn’t sickly sweet. Beer is Alright.

tmongoose (1190) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 6, 2012
22oz bomber that poured out raspberry red mixed with the unfiltered wheat color. with an off white pinkish head that disappears quickly. quite ingenious flavor merging the raspberries with the wheat and makes it feel and taste creamy smooth. the wheat flavor is unlike others i have tried and had that distinct flavor. this is a decent beer.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Pours a handsome red-orange, very hazy, with a bolus of particles clumping into the glass at the end (didn’t expect that). Lively white head. Aroma is dominated by natural raspberry fruit, sweet bready undertones. Jammy raspberry flavours with bready sweet malts. Way more bread and caramel than wheat, lending a raspberry tart quality to this brew. I actually really liked it.

mcberko (5942) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle at tasting, pours a cloudy orange with a red tinge and a small white head. Aroma of light raspberry, wheat and light bread. Flavour of the same, with a muted finish. Pretty standard and unspectacular - how good can you make this style?

22 oz. bottle from Hayduke. We enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This had loads of dark sediment on the bottom of the bottle and it poured hazy golden brown. It had a nice two finger head that lasted a while. The nose was chock full of raspberry. That translated to the flavor, too, along with wheat. Bitterness began big along with the raspberries. More wheat emerged as it warmed and bitterness smoothed out. This was exactly what it said it was and who can argue with that?
