Southern Tier Raspberry White

southerntier-raspberrywhite-1Brewery – Southern Tier
Beer – Raspberry White
Style – Fruited Wheat
ABV – 4.6%

Over the years we’ve fine-tuned our house brew into a beautifully crisp & slightly sweet wheat beer brewed with malted barley, unmalted wheat & raspberry puree. Perfectly balanced, light bodied & Raspberry tart, raspberry white is ready to take on the world one bottle at a time.

Southern Tier’s Raspberry White didn’t see a wide distribution for a long time.  It wasn’t until the low murmur of fans clamoring for it to see a wider reach turned into a dull roar that Southern Tier was forced to meet that demand.

The beer now reaches far and wide seasonally in January in six packs of 12oz bottles, so if you’re a fan of fruited wheat beers, you can snag some of your own to enjoy at home.

My Thoughts On Southern Tier Raspberry White

This looks great poured into a glass.  It’s got a hazy yellow-orange body with a big bright white head perched on top of the glass.

Aromas are all about the Raspberry, with a sweet berry note that leaps from the glass with no abandon.

Flavors are a big slap of sweet, and tart raspberry.  The tartness cuts through the heavy wheat body to make this seem very nice and drinkable, and the lower 4.8% ABV leaves you able to drink a few of them to really make up your mind.  Mine?  Made up pretty fast… I love it.
