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

Pale red-orange pour. Zero head. Sweet aroma and flavor with a strong raspberry flavor. Not overly synthetic but the beer is a little syrupy.

Poured up a hazy ice tea colored brew with very small head that didn’t hold. Smells of rasberry and wheat. Taste is a medicinal artificial berry that is not plesent at all. There are some wheat flavors hiding here and there but it is dominated by what appears to be a flavor extract rather than real berries. Sadly I grabbed a whole six pack of these. Will get buzzed on some other brews and then see I can just suck these on down to get rid of them.

Transfer from BA review on 5-24-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance- Served a lightly hazed orange-amber colored brew with a reddish-pinkish hue and a fizzy one finger white head. The head quickly dissipates leaving only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma is of wheat mixed with some nice raspberry smells. Taste – The taste begins with wheat mixed with raspberry flavors. A little bit of a yeasty flavor joins midway through the taste with the raspberry flavor getting slightly stronger and the wheat flavor slightly less so. In the end a rather refreshing and moderately crisp raspberry wheat flavor is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is rather light in creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Very appropriate for the wheat and fruit flavors of the brew, making for a rather refreshing drinker. Overall – A relatively easy to drinking hefe with a moderate, but not obnoxious raspberry flavor.

60minuteman (852) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Aroma of artificial fruit, raspberries, strawberries, wheat, sugar, hops, grass. Taste is sweet from the fruits. Not badly balanced by the wheat and malt. Still way too sweet, artificial.

Draught at brewery tour, Harpoon, Boston. Too pronounced raspberry, feeling of beer almost lost. Nice colour, though, not too red.

Bottle - Nice light raspberry and light wheat. Cloudy gold with a decent thin white head. Raspberry and light grain. Lots of raspberry, but not too exciting.
