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.

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

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2010
22oz bottle poured into a Flute at 38į. 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.

22oz bomber. Unfiltered glowing red-orange with a creamy, thin off-white/pinkish head. This is probably one of the better raspberry beers Iíve 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 itís essence, but one to appreciate if youíve had countless subpar raspberry beers.

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.

This is a real fruit beer. Tastes like they added real fruit. The wheat aspect is dominated by the fruit. I really like the flavor but I am going to add a German Weisse to it to give it a fuller body and flavor. After I added the German Weisse..... wow! Granted the raspberry is a bit muted now than at the start but it is still there. Color is really nice now. I give it a 4.4 after the addition.

StefanSD (2085) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUL 6, 2011
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a murky amber-red color with a small pink head. The aroma is mild with raspberries, hay and biscuit. The flavor has raspberries in the forefront, layered on top of some cistrusy hops with a good biscuit malt backbone. The palate medium with lively carbonation. The finish is long and dry with lingering berries. Overall: Very enjoyable quaff.
