Raspberry is perhaps the most versatile of fruit flavors, with enough acidity to keep its tart flavor from being buried by the malt. Our Raspberry Wheat features the soft refreshing flavor of wheat beer lightly accented with raspberry flavor. Our Raspberry Wheat Kit includes the same blended wheat beer yeast as our Weizenbeer for a balanced character. A refreshing beer for Summer brewing and drinking. Alcohol: 3.9%, IBU's 23.

Includes 6 lbs. of our blended wheat malt extract, Hallertau hops, 125 ml of liquid wheat beer yeast, natural raspberry flavoring, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of 1.039.Ease of Brewing: Beginner

Great Raspberry Wheat kit

Review by tattoo123 on 9/24/2005

Pros: This kit made a really good beer with easy to follow instructions. I do brew all grain now using my own recipes, but if I ever decide to brew kits again I will get them from Williams.

Cons: None

Great beer!

Review by JOHN M. on 10/29/2005

Pros: This is the second time I've made this kit, and it turned out excellent. Clarified well after only 2 weeks in the fridge. Should get even better with age.


Review by Jason J. on 4/3/2007

Pros: The directions to make this beer were very easy to follow.

Cons: This beer tasted awful! It has a really bad / fake raspberry flavor not to mention the weak alcohol content. Not worth the $33! Out of my 7 batches of beer that I've brewed in the last year this is the only one I'm considering dumping down the drain and I'm not one to waste alcohol!

One of your better kits

Review by Doug S. on 4/25/2007

Pros: For the past 25 years or so, I've been using your kits, primarily porters and stouts. The raspberry wheat was a pleasant surprise with just a hint of raspberry flavor and not an overpowering or sickening sweet taste. My friends, who make beer and wine, and I feel that the first batch compares favorably with commercial raspberry wheats. Kit is a good baseline for experimentation.

Cons: The alcohol content could use a little boost with the addition of some more malt or corn sugar, but without sacrificing beer quality. If I were into a cheap buzz, why not just brew invert sugar? Yuk!

Wonderful Beer!!

Review by Sabrah B. on 9/12/2007

Pros: This was a light beer with a wonderful hint of raspberry and it smelled so good during the brewing process. This is not a berry flavored beer like some brewers may think; the hint of raspberry made it a delightful summer, light drinking or sipping beer. I will purchase this kit again for spring 2008. It changes from being light to almost a bit heavier like an ale after being refrigerated for more than a few weeks. However this does not take away from the smooth flavor of this beer; I think it deepens the taste. My husband and I brew beer together as a hobby and I AM NOT a beer drinker but I have begun developing a taste for the beers that we brew with Williams kits. I still do not drink it, but I love a few sips to enjoy the bursting flavors that are definately noticeable within the first few sips.
