Harpoon Brewery - Harpoon's UFO Raspberry Hefeweizen

Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 12 oz. bottle, poured into a flute

The raspberry version of Harpoon's "UnFiltered Offering" pours a thin straw with a pinkish hue. The coloring is reminiscent of a cranberry juice cocktail or grapefruit juice. The head is extremely light and airy with huge carbonation bubbles and a slightly-tinted off-white color. The candy raspberry nose is very sweet and tart.

The thin wheat malts seem sour under the excessive and toothsome sweetness. The tight and crisp carbonated mouthfeel gives the beer a soda-like edge. The finish has a slight adjunct lager taste to it along with a sugary tooth feel and a modest candy-like raspberry flavoring.

Final Verdict: D+
