COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Availabale on draught (keg) and in 330ml bottles. Also sold as Sainsburys 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 goats cheese, rich pate or anything chocolatey.

MarkoNm (2519) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 8, 2016
Pours a hazy amber-coppery color, topped with medium sized white head, slight ruby undertone and medium lasting. Pleasant fruity note with raspberry syrup and some whatey notes. A slight intial sweetness followed by medium soury fruity taste with a tad puckering acidic feel. Short aftertaste and medium body. Nice one. Easily enjoyable.

explosivedog (560) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 14, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a fairly unappealing orange brown colour with no head. Visibly fizzy on the top. Aroma is tart raspberry, but a little synthetic. Taste is also very tart, with a nice raspberry finish. The main issue is that its far too fizzy.

Hazy red colour with thin head. Aroma and flavour have plenty of raspberry. Its fairly sweet for a raspberry beer. Still pleasant and easy to drink though.

ManVsBeer (8927) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Deeper amber coloured with no head. The raspberry is its dominant characteristic, although not overly stated by any means, and the wheat ale texture works well for the ale too.

Unusual fizzness, one you would expect from a pop can not a beer. Its very much a raspberry to the point that it tastes like sour fruit juice more then a beer. You would think this would work better were is a lambric rather then a wheat beer as it is stylistically like one. Which is a shame as some of the german fruit wheat beers are lovely thick things. All in all its nit a bad beer and is a quite nice drink. Its just not what I was hoping for. If you want a tart raspberry beer stick to you Framboise lambics. Nothing interesting here, and nothing that hasent been done much better elsewhere. If you facy something a little more fruity and this is the only option thats got that by all means give it a try!
