Ravens Brewing has brought back their popular Raspberry Hefeweizen for the summer, made with local Abbotsford raspberries. The beer pours from the bomber bottle a cloudy red colour with two fingers of dense white head that dissipates very slowly leaving some trace lacing on the glass. The aromas are of fresh raspberries, wheat, and some sweetness. These aromas are followed up by a hint of tartness, as well as some subtle yeastiness and a note of hay at the end. In the mouth are flavours of wheat malt, hay, fresh raspberries with their characteristic sweet and tart combo, as well as some apple and peach tones to round out the fruitiness. The beer presents a great body with a nice and surprisingly dry finish. This hefeweizen may just become your go-to summer beer.
