Raspberry Wheat Extract Beer Recipe Kit
Medium-bodied with the flavor profile of a Bavarian Hefeweizen, but laced with tart, fruity raspberry aroma and flavor.
Meet the Raspberry Wheat: Mild, approachable, and fruity, wee found this to be a good gateway beer as well as a nice end to a warm summer evening or dense chocolate cake. Medium-bodied with the flavor profile of a Bavarian Hefeweizen, but laced with tart, fruity raspberry aroma and flavor. Natural raspberry extract added to taste at bottling lets you tone down the fruit or turn it way up, as you prefer.

I have made this a few times now. The first time was for a get together. I had (2) beers on tap and The Raspberry Wheat ran out before the night was over. The other, being a darker beer and not for every palate, was half consumed. With the (1) raspberry flavoring, you only notice the raspberry as an after taste. Since this brewing, I have made it again, this time doubling the raspberry. The flavor and aroma are strong, there is no doubt it is raspberry with 2 bottles. While this may be to strong for some, I do like it. However, next time I will tone it back to 1.25-1.50 bottles of flavoring to appeal to more palates. At this gathering, it was well enjoyed by the mid 20's crowd up to us "old guys" in our late 40's early 50's. In fact, one of the mid 20's asked me to brew it for her wedding. I have also used this kit to make a Blueberry version and am currently working on an Apple version to mimic Busch Apple. Excited to taste the result. Cheers!
It was a little to “fake” flavored for me but overall not terrible.
Easy to do, good for a beginner as well. Go easy on the flavoring. I used half.
It’s a fan favorite, very popular
Overall, this turned out well. It was my first time making it, so I used all the raspberry extract - next time I’ll dial it back to 3/4 or so.
