Raspberry Wheat Ale

Raspberry Wheat Ale Wine Details

Description: A domestic interpretation of the fruit flavored beers that made Belgium famous. Very light and crisp with low hop bitterness, this beer gathers it’s flavor from fresh Raspberries that are used in place of flavoring and aroma hops.

Varietal Definition
Wheat Ale:
As the name would suggest these are ales that use a proportion of wheat in the mash to add a protein haze. Wheat ales, inspired by the German weizen tradition were popular before prohibition in the US and are enjoying a resurgence in popularity. This generic category encapsulates the diverse interpretation of the classic German Weizen styles brewed in America and elsewhere.
