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.

Theydon_Bois (18928) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle, from Hogsback store, at JFs 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.

BeerViking (4608) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Bottle from Waitrose, pours hazy rose-brown with a lasting fine head and aromas of dry wheat and lightly tart fruit. Palate has a nice balance of lightly spicy malt - more Witbier than Weizen - and sour-sweet raspberry. I like this a lot more than I remember from when it first came out.

planky84 (3152) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Bottle from my mate Wiggy who presumably got it from Lewisham Tesco. Honey coloured pour with a wispy white head. Lots of red berries in the nose, splash of beetroot and toffee apple. Sweet red berry action in the flavour, whisper of sourness. Ok.

JanEric (1226) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2017
Bottle at Bierfestival groningen.(mastercalss). Refrsheing beer, sourish from the raspberries and the wheat. A bit flat at all, maybe I expected more from it.

carussell (4) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017 does not count
A fruity, sour wheat which was quite sharp on the tongue. Poured cloudy with lots of fizz which quickly disapated.

MarkoNm (2670) - 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.

Served in a Teku glass from a 330ml bottle. Pours orange-pink colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma is raspberry, yeast, grass, yogurt. Taste is sour, red fruit, yogurt and zesty notes. Medium body with lively carbonation. Tasty, enjoyable and unusual wheat beer.

explosivedog (927) - 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.

mike_77 (6362) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2016
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.
