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.

Theydon_Bois (8727) - The ’Sham, Surrey, - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle, from Hogsback store, at JF’s Calcutta Cup mini tasting - 02/02/13. Hazed crimson with a thin white head that clears to bubbles around the edge. Nose is slightly soured raspberries, light sugar, Ribena, raspberry syrup. Taste is tarte raspberries, some sugars, light mineral tones. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, sweet in the finish. Ok for what it is - bit of a palate cleanser and probably refreshing on a hot summers day/BBQ.

Cunningham (4507) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2014
Cloudy dark orange color with an off white head. Fruity, wheat, banana and raspberry in the nose. Decent body and a fine carbonation. Not to sweet. Also a bit acidic. The banana and raspberry crashed a little bit. Otherwise a fresh and ok ale. Also some wheat and yeast in the flavor.

Hallstein (126) - Skogn, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2014
Nice blonde/pink color with a quickly dissapating head. Aroma is kind of a mix of a hefeweizen and raspberries. Nice raspberry with some slight bubblegum/banana-ish aromas. The flavor is interesting with notes of sour raspberries, bread, bubblegum/banana with a dry finish. The high amounts of carbonation suits this beer well. It’s good, but a tad too dry for my liking.

Foffern (1230) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a cloudy, matt dark orange colour with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma of citrus, Belgian yeast, hops and some raspberries. The flavour is slightly sour with tones of berries, citrus and some wheat. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fresh ale but feels a bit unbalanced in the end.

Simonsen (654) - NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Flaske fra systembolaget. Uklar rød farge, noe hvitt skum som forsvinner. Høyt karbonert. Smaker gjær,banan, hvete ,bringebær, sitrus. En frisk og livlig øl. Som en blanding av surøl/fruktøl og hveteøl. Resultatet er en ganske frisk, men smakløs hveteøl med litt aroma av bringebær og ettersmak av litt sitrus og humle. God men ingen utfordring

nudiebear (101) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle at home. Cloudy orange red with quickly disappearing head. Poured lively. Fruity and noticeable raspberry aroma, slightly bitter taste. Can easily replace any other summer party welcome drink. Enjoyable, but not challenging.

campbega (70) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
330ml bottle. Intense carbonation. Pours ruddy brown. Aromas of strawberry and raspberry. Very sweet, perhaps too sweet and spoilt by an almost metallic taste.
