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 Alaskanís 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.

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Pours hazy orange with white head from bottle. Aroma has notes of big raspberry, toffee, some spice, biscuit, more sweet jammy raspberries in there as well. Taste is overwhelming raspberry, starting with some lemon and tart raspberry, moving into some biscuit, sweet raspberry, finishing slightly sweet. Lots of raspberries in there, but too much of the jammy, sweet berries in there. Overall good.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Pours with a plumish hue and a lingering head. I can smell the raspberry on the nose pretty good. Medium nectar with good carbonation. A delicious brew with a distinct raspbeerical disposition. Not sweet at all with a nicely bittered finish.

Terminus (3371) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2011
bottle-wow, im very impressed with this beer! pours dark cherry red with a small fizzy white head. nose of raspberries, tartness, and lite wood with some sugary notes as well. smells more like real raspberries than most beers of this type. flavors of tart raspberries, wood, and some very dry notes on the finish-slightly plastic/band aid on the finish but becomes very dry long into the beer. a very cool beer from a very cool brewery. Im very impressed!

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2011
Hazy ruby amber, frothy beige head. Aroma of tart raspberries, caramel. Taste is not overly sweet, still hefty sweet raspberry taste along with some breadiness. Not bad, but I donít see myself paying 9 dollars for another bottle of this.

Dogbrick (9643) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2011
This beer pours a hazy ruby-amber color with a medium off-white head that bubbles away steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of raspberry puree and wheat. Light, effervescent body with a mildly tart raspberry character that has notes of malt and wheat behind it. Touch of hops in the background. The finish is fruity with a short raspberry aftertaste. Just average overall.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Sampled on 7/17/2011. This fruit beer pours a murky reddish amber color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized off white foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is raspberries, cereal, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are floral. A very clean and nice raspberry flavor throughout this beer, it is not overly sweet or artificial. It just taste like raspberries. Lively carbonation. Good summer beer, tastes very nice on a pleasant summer evening. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is raspberry and slightly sweet.

DYCSoccer17 (3499) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 16, 2011
22 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. $8, yikes. The aroma has tons of raspberry in it. Itís not overly sweet or cloying, and it seems to have an effervescence about it. There appears to be some light underlying citrus. Very quaffable. More than moderately hazy reddish/pink/orange body with a fizzy medium white head. Starts a little overcarbonated, before some of the raspberry flavors come through. Not too strong or overpowering, before the milky, chewy wheat flavors take over in the middle. Some scant lemon and citrus are also in there. A little spicy. This is pretty good. I am not sure I would buy this again at this pricepoint, though. I suppose that is what happens when you actually use fresh fruit to brew a beer with when you live in Alaska. I canít imagine that raspberries grow readily there?
