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.

From bottle at home. Pours a cloudy deep pink to red color. Minimal white head. Grass and citrus scents. Light to medium sourness. Light body with a thin texture. Raspberry flavor comes forward after the sourness subsides and sit on the palate.

Palme (3639) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 28, 2016
0.33l bottle. This is a cloudy hard to describe the color of one. Ehm, deep amber with a pinkish hue? Only a small off-white head with the same pinkish hue. It smells artificial fruity with lime and traces of raspberry bubblegum. Wheat sweetness also detected here. Not horrible. Slightly acidic-sour, or tart is a better word to describe the flavors here. Wheat sweetness detected, but the sourness overwhelms pretty much everything. Raspberry sourness of course. Thin and only in the mouth with a above average carbonation level. Grows on you, but definitely no masterpiece. 06.06.2014

flying_pig (1366) - SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2016
330ml Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Giffnock (£1.99):
As expected, raspberries dominated this one throughout but there was also some nice tart & sourness coming through alongside some funky flavours. It reminded me of a lambic in places & it wasn’t a bad smell to open things up. The taste wasn’t the best though, it seemed weakened when compared to the nose & was quite average really. Not a beer I’d have again but it was interesting to try at least without ever really exciting.

Pretty disappointing. Very generic, really, and barely any detectable raspberry. Slightly sour. That’s about it.

@Spain, @Wine Palace, bottle 33cl, 5%, 2015

KoNrRiI (1039) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2015
0.33 bottle. Very hazy, compote-colored liquid with virtually no head. Heavy aroma of fermented fruits - apples, pears, and raspberries - which hide almost everything else. Sour, fruity taste with a ton of fruits. Light to medium body, slick/thin texture, and a lively carbonation. Finish is medium long, sweet’n’sour or rather sour’n’sweet. Overall the brew is relatively bad, although it could be refreshing when served cold.

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.
