Schlafly Beer (St. Louis, Missouri) has officially announced that the Seasonal release of Raspberry Hefeweizen will begin during the week of March 18.
Also known as “brewers’ summer water” at Schlafly, Raspberry Hefeweizen is an unfiltered Wheat Beer “that uses real raspberry in the brewing process.” Hazy pink in color, this “true fruit beer” allows the flavor and aroma of raspberries to mingle “with citrus aromas from the wheat and a desirable tart flavor.” Coming in at a “delightfully drinkable” 4.1% ABV and 16 IBUs, Raspberry Hefeweizen “is low in bitterness and not overwhelmingly sweet, but refreshing and balanced.”
“Drinking pink isn’t only for the rosé lovers out there,” says Founding Brewer Stephen Hale. “Our Raspberry Hefeweizen is the ideal crushable beer for warm weather. Now, in 16-ounce cans, it is even more approachable for summer pool hangs, beach time, or porch sipping.”
Raspberry Hefeweizen is officially rolling out this week with plans to hang around through the warm weather months. You can expect to find this Seasonal offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 12-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Missouri, Tennessee, and throughout the rest of Schlafly’s distribution footprint. Prost!
