Durham’s Raspberry Hefeweizen pours a beautiful red with a big pink fluffy head and smells of fresh berries, straw and yeasty dough.
There’s a soft, freshly baked bread crust, banana and caramel malt that sits firmly and squarely at the centre of this beer and around it swim millions of plump, tart, juicy raspberries.
They pop with life and give a delightfully bitter, almost sour kick in the tongue.
There’s a good richness here too though, a roundness in the flavour that stops the beer feeling too acidic, and it leaves you with a dab of honey, some green leaves and a big crisp raspberry juice smile.
Very nice indeed.
