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.

Bottle at Crowne Plaza, Docklands, March 10th 14. Pink, too much fuzzy head. Taste us sweet raspberry, not so much wheat. Not great

Beertobealive (139) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2014
Short white head. With agave aroma. Strange orangish red color. Bitter in mouth and with a yoghurt thickness. Raspberry is far away though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

martjoobolut (363) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 8, 2014
0,33L bottle. Pours hazy red amber-copper with faint pink head. The head stays. Aroma is sour, berries, rhubarb, sweetness. Taste: strong raspberries and sourness, but otherwise rather light beer. Overall: ok, but nothing more.

Lovely rose colour with a slight sparkle and tiny head. Lovely raspberry nose. Very mild raspberry flavour. A little wheaty.

Philym (698) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Appearance: Hazy pink/copper/brown with very big pink/ivory head. Aroma: Mineral, musky, subtle raspberry, woody, hint of jam. Taste: Low sweet and bitterness with medium/high sourness. Palate: Thin, airy coarse texture, light body, prickly carbonation, abrupt sharp fruity mineral finish. Comments: Very carbonated and lively, as soon as the top came off it fizzed out the bottle. Tasty but not much raspberry. The tartness would be good or cutting through oily foods.

Nice raspberry aroma. Very high carbonated, head comes out of glass. Very sour and hard to drink.

pours cloudy medium dark golden pinkish with a quite nice pink head, good retention and lacing. raspberry juice, almost cooler-like and raspberry infused white wine, wheat with few lemon drops, pepper, grass, chalk. lively yet soft carbonation, light body, grassy, slightly astringent and lightly citric finish. more than ok.

pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle: Hazy, reddish-amber coloured, bigger - slowly collapsing - fluffy pinkish head, raspberries and wheat in the nose; moderate and quite dry sour flavour, light bodied; fruity sour and bitter finish. Sigh…

mt_hall (93) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2013
Bottled. Hazy, dark red/pink colour with a good pink-tinged head. Aromas of raspberry and yeast - not over-powering. Tart, slightly sweet raspberry flavour with a clean, dry finish. Pretty good.

a_cross (525) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Pinkish, dark orange colour with the most ridiculously large foamy head in the history of beer - I’m a careful pourer, but most of the glass was foam; aroma is raspberry, it smells fizzy, if that’s possible; tastes of sharp raspberries initially, then the sharpness fades into a mellower finish; not much hint of wheat beer - just fizzy fruit juice - merely ok fizzy fruit juice at that.
