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.

Thanks to Shig, pours pink with a white head. Aroma is big fruit, loads of berries. Flavor is soft wheat and berries ending mildly sweet but not cloying.

22oz bottle thanks to Mike
Appearance: Clear reddish amber with floaties (yeast?) and a small white head. Aroma and taste of raspberries and wheat with some tartness. A decent wheat beer.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks to Mike. Bright raspberry, tart raspberry, dough. This beer surprised me, not sweet our syrupy.

22 oz. bottle. Pours dark amber reddish color with a soft white head. Aroma is a good mix of malt wheat and raspberries. Taste is about the same with the malt and wheat really showing and the raspberries standing out more towards the finish and just a tinge of tartness. Palate is thin to medium with a dry finish. Really would like to see the raspberries be more dominate!

ryanfolty (1977) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Date: July 3, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: AV3 Description: Semi-opaque cloudy orangish red with some head and spotty lacing. Aroma was raspberry and grain. Taste was pretty much the same with a slightly soapy bitter finish and aftertaste. Thin to medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. This had a good level of sweetness to it, but a little more tart/sour would have been nice.

Massive raspberry bomb here, sweet through and through without much wheat beer coming through. Still, the tartness of the berries provides a bit of a reprieve from the sweetness, but one pint is more than enough.

Sampled in a bomber. Really good brew but in the end it cant stack up with a lot of other brews. Really nice malts, decent flavor.

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.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2012
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.

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.
