COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Availabale on draught (keg) and in 330ml bottles. Also sold as Sainsbury’s Raspberry Wheat.
NOTE: This is not the same beer as Raspberry Grand Cru.
Based on a pale, lightly hopped wheat beer, the refreshingly crisp fruitiness, aroma and rich colour come from the addition of fresh raspberry puree during maturation. Balancing tartness with sweetness, on its own it is a delicious aperitif, as well being as a great partner for goat’s cheese, rich pate or anything chocolatey.

Pours a nice medium red colour. On the nose sour berry. Tastes of red berries....very sour red berries with a short bitter aftertaste. Not particularly pleasant.

Vells (921) - Riga, LATVIA - DEC 26, 2014
Cant call this wheat.. Mostly like unintentional fruit/lambic, besides - undermatured. Straightforward sour raspberries - slightly artificial. Moderate sweet with moderate acidic sourness. One-timer. Not total disaster, but I homebrew much better ones

Melnis (275) - LATVIA - DEC 16, 2014
Aroma: Raspberry, beet. Appearance: swamp water. Bit sour and saison type, for this beer it should be sweeter

djoeye (2220) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2014
Colour is apricot, hazy. Head vanished. Gusher. Aroma’s mild fruity wheat malts, notes of some berries. Taste’s sour berries, apricot or peach, fruity malts, faint note of wommit. Not much finish. Limonade’ish on palate. Strange radler. [33cl special br btl, abv5%, BB?, B@Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen]

Gurthnar (2726) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle. Aroma acidic, apple vinegar. Hazy reddish amber colour. Taste acidic right from beginning, apples, fruity. Sourness is clearly present, but not overwhelming. Lightest of clove. Not much more. Rather simple and strange, but good for those who like this kind of thing, but drinkability is rather poor. IMO overall average.

metalspice (241) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
Rød/Orange med høyt skum med et lite rosaskjær. Skummet blir fort borte. Duften er lett bringebær og gress. Smak er vannaktig bringebærsaft uten ettersmak. Foretrekker helt klart jålebukk fra Hubertus.

Tåkete orange farge med høyt hvitt skum ved skjenking. Faller ganske raskt. Lukter fruktig, syrlig, noe vinøs. Smaker syrlig bær. tørr avslutning.
