Product Details
Meet the Raspberry Wheat: Mild, approachable, and fruity, we've 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 did NOT use the raspberry extract that came with this kit. Instead, I used 3 lbs of fresh raspberries that I froze about a week before my secondary fermentation and then thawed out the day I did my transfer. I dumped them right into the secondary and let them sit for 2 weeks. What a spectacular flavor and color! I brewed this (and a Sierra Madre Pale Ale) for my outdoor/backyard wedding reception/BBQ and the keg kicked about 3 hours in. Everyone loved it and I would highly recommend. Note: when transferring from secondary, I did a little extra work. I strained the beer through a regular strainer into a bottling bucket. I then used tubing on the bottling bucket to transfer to the keg, but ran this through a fine mesh funnel strainer first in order to capture all of the tiny raspberry seeds. Outcome was ideal - no sludge, no seeds, no clogs on the intake tube in the keg!

Imitation or artificial
I should have read the other reviews BUT I didn’t, The raspberry did have an off taste but did tone down a bit over a couple of weeks, but not enough. I will try the real raspberries next time. I did add 12 oz of my own honey to the boil so me NOT being a know it all who knows. I will give it another shot down the road but with real fruit .

1st timer
1st time brewing at home since college days. This is my wife's favorite at local brewery, promised to brew this first if I got the equipment to brew at home. Followed the directions to a tee but only added 1/2 of raspberry concentrate. turned out perfect - family finished it quickly - will brew again - wife said I can! (would anyway).

Use real raspberries!
I have been home brewing for over a year and this was my 9th extract recipe since I started. The only reason this is 4 stars instead of 5 is because the recipe is wonderful but almost too easy. I strongly recommend this recipe especially if you are interested in brewing a low ABV beer with fruit. I read the reviews on the raspberry flavoring so only used 2 ounces at bottling. However, I used 6 pounds of fresh raspberries smashed in cheese cloth and put in the secondary for two weeks. The outcome is awesome. It's a perfect summertime lawnmower beer.

Does This Qualify As Beer?!! Let me help.....No.
If you want to brew an over processed and synthetic beer get this kit. I prefer synthetics for my engine not my body.

Response from Northern Brewer
Thanks for the review. This kit does contain 100% pure malt extract and hops. The Raspberry extract is made with an alcohol base. It can be added to taste or we are happy to help with advice on using real fruit if you would prefer. Customer Service will be contacting you to discuss our Kit Guarantee.

Many love it
Easy to brew and tastes amazing. I usually give a portion of my beers to my friends, and this one has been the most well received. I just brewed my second batch yesterday.

Added Raspberry to a secondary fermentation
I made this kit once and it was my 2nd or 3rd batch of beer ever. I did some reading on a few sites and opted to throw the extract into a secondary fermenter and rack onto it. I intended a 2 week secondary but ended up with 3wks as I didn't have time to bottle when originally thought. I left the beer in a dark closet for 4 more weeks while I drank my other beers and when it came time to drink the Razz, it was delicious.. just a hint of raspberry and a nice smooth beer overall. This one is NOT a bad beer, even a novice brewer like me can tweak the recipes and do things to tone down flavors or amp them up. I'm setting up to do a second batch right this moment!!

Awful Raspberry Flavor
Brewed this batch for my wife. The brew process was extremely easy, but the raspberry extract used is terrible. We started at 1oz of extract and added more to taste. Ended up using 3oz and the final product is not good. I will not be able to get rid of this beer quick enough. I'd highly recommend using real fruit or just skipping the extract completely. Very disappointed with this beer

Very good taste
Does not taste like medicine at all. I used just over half of the provided raspberry extract and felt that was the perfect amount; raspberry taste is more than subtle but not at all overbearing. This is a very good, drinkable beer that you can knock back a few in one sitting. I recommend highly.

Do I have to pick a yeast option or does it come with a default And the same question for the primer?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are both required fields that you must make a selection. If you already have your own yeast & primer then simply change the option from None to the one that says "None + $0.00"
Any suggestions on the amount of raspberry extract to use? Directions simply say, "to taste" - would love to know what you've experienced prior to me tinkering around.
A S on Feb 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The flavor is not too strong in a full five gallon batch, I would use the whole thing. I have even used two in a dark beer, as the roasted grain covered up some of the fruit flavor. Or, bottle some with none, and then add the flavor to the bottling bucket, so you can have some with and some without the added flavoring. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
