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.

Theydon_Bois (9698) - 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.

Gurthnar (2094) - 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 (112) - 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.

Cunningham (4775) - 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.
[Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Halden, Norway]

Hallstein (139) - 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.
