Alaskan Raspberry Wheat is an American-style Wheat Ale that highlights the bright flavors and inviting aroma of more than 3,000 pounds of real raspberries added during fermentation. Years of local demand through Alaskans Rough Draft program of draft-only releases and a Silver medal from the 2008 Great American Beer Festival make Alaskan Raspberry Wheat the perfect brew to launch the Alaskan Pilot Series.

August 16th, 2012 - Its hard to find fault with a bottle of beer so sweetly adorned with a curious, dog-like bear, seemingly swimming through a berry patch in search of the sweet fruits and morsels. Isnt that an analogy for us beer drinkers? Doeful eyed, traveling from brewery to brewery, ending up cradling a bottle of good beer on our backs as we attept to lick the last blessed drops from an especially toothsome serving? And so with the actual tasting, I was in a good mood, and ready to take in the sweeter side of Alaska, and one that wasnt baked or lit on fire. The color is a cross between red and orange, though more orange than red, with a few pinkish hues thrown in to give this brew a bit of a blush. From this chubby cheek colored beer comes a light, sweet raspberry smell, which is light, but not too light, with a spritzy effervescence and just a hint of ripe watermelon. Upon a taste, the first thing I notice is a cascading carbonation. Its huge and roiling, and clouds what I assume are soft and quiet fruity notes submerged somewhere in the churning mouthfeel of the beer. This light, bubbly water flavor lasts to the mid-tastem where shadows of sweet, overripe raspberries begin to appear, though their shape s hazy. This brew might benefit from a bit of warmth, and with a little time for the carbonation to settle, but it didnt last that long. As it is, this is not the best Alaskan Brewery brew out there.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Summer 2010. This beer is unimpressive. I will not purchase again. Fail. Pours a ruby red beer with little head. Sour nose with sweet hints of raspberries. Sour flavor. Lite body. Medium carb. Finishes okay. At $3 out of discount bin, not a bad hit. Probably better fresh or a couple years out. Serving type: bottle 02-21-2011

Bottle from Total Wine Glendale. Pours turgid ruby with a thin khaki head. Massive cloying raspberry on the nose. Lots of syrup on the tongue. Finish lingers. Not by favorite from these guys.
