COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Natural raspberry flavors are added to our UFO Hefeweizen to create this beer. Consistent with the Hefeweizen style, this beer is unfiltered and cloudy with a solid foamy head. UFO R.A.Z. has a distinctive, hazy rose color. The scent of fresh raspberries hits the nose immediately, along with a subtle bready aroma from the wheat and yeast. The body is light and the unfiltered yeast provides a soft mouthfeel. The taste of the fruit compliments the beer nicely, neither overwhelms the other. There is a faint sweetness on the palate, which finishes cleanly in a semi-dry, tart finish. - See more at: http://www.harpoonbrewery.com/beer/96/ufo-r-a-z#sthash.ZVHloRZ3.dpuf

This was very bad from start to finish. It poured into my pint glass looking like a mix between beer and kool-aid. The scent coming off of it was pungent. It smelled like old sour fruit. The taste was not much better. It is sour and sweet but not in a good way. I will pass for sure in the future. I only had this because someone left it in my fridge.

voyageurmike (147) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Served in tulip glass from a bottle. Fared a little better as it warmed, but not a great tasting beer. More a fruit beer than a hefe. Orange, white head, quite carbonated. Cloyingly sweet raspberry flavor with tart aftertaste.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orangish body with a small fizzy off-white head that quickly vanished. The nose is sweet raspberry candy with just a minimal note of yeast and wheat. It tastes about as simple as the nose suggests. It’s sweet up front and lightly tart on the back end, this is all raspberry and not a whole lot else. Light bodied with just a bit of stickiness and soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty well about what was expected.

On tap at the Harpoon Brewery, Boston. Pours orange with off-white head. Raspberries in aroma and flavor. Sweetish with light wheat notes. Light to medium bodied.

bennetporter (357) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Pours a hazy ruby-amber from a bottle with a quickly dissipating minimal head with large bubbles. Reminds me of pouring a coke into a glass or something. Aroma is a rather messy mix of raspberry and the sort of light breadiness of the beer. Flavor is likewise just raspberry on top of an unpleasant piece of toast. Not like a warm childhood memory, more like a "why did they mess with this?". Meh.

kevinator (1386) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Decent raspberry and wheat aroma without smelling like a wine cooler. Light gold with a slight pink tint. Lightweight palate with strong carbonation. Raspberry up front that is a little sweet followed by wheat notes. Some bittetness but a little one-sided.
