COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
UFO Raspberry Hefeweizen is our own interpretation of the European practice of adding fruit flavors to wheat beers. We have added natural raspberry flavor to our UFO Hefeweizen to give it a delicate fruit flavor and slight sweetness. The raspberry juice adds a rich color to the cloudy, unfiltered beer, yielding a soft reddish hue. The scent of the berries mixes with the lightly hopped beer aroma. The raspberries are balanced by UFO Hefeweizen’s clean, wheat beer taste, making this beer enjoyable and refreshing.

ROBC3366 (519) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Cloudy, avg lace, middle amber with an orange hue, due to the raspberry juice added. Light body, medium flavor density, bright mouthfeel, short palate. Slight bitterness, touch of fruity sweetness which predominates in the finish, refreshing acidity. Well defined raspberry flavor which persists longer than all other impressions, yeasty soapiness. Good way to start the session ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Basically raspberry juice mixed with a little beer. A raspberry shandy. Very sweet like fruit juice. Still, not too bad.

Hazy light gold with cream colored head. Aroma of yeast/wheat and fruit. Taste of raspberries.

Amberish in color. Raspberry with slight hops in the aroma. The flavor kind of falls off the raspberry tastes artificial and sugar-candy like. The beer is lost.

Simple and flavorful. Clean raspberry flavor but if you only want a hint of raspberry and a lot of hefeweizen you are looking in the wrong place. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a hazy orange/brown colored body with a small white head, body is too hazy for any carbonation to be seen. There was no lacing at all. The smell had tart raspberry with some slight wheat coming in every now and again. The taste isn’t any different from the smell. The palate is about a medium with the carbonation felt, sessionable. Overall, well, I don’t think I’ll have this again, just wasn’t that impressed for me, still good for the style.
