Ahnapee Brewery Raspberry Spritzbier

What the brewers say

Our take on a craft hard seltzer, without being one. It’s razor dry, made with 350 pounds of real raspberry, barley, and hops.

What our panel thought

Sexy violet color. Aroma: black raspberry and plum-skin dark fruit. Slight smoky, charred note; touch of white bread, Cheerio. Moderate acidity—a bit harsh—and tannic skin or seed. Fruit wine without the alcohol. All about the fruit, but muddled.

What our editors thought

Rich, lightly sharp raspberry nose with touches of buttery roundness and ashy dive-bar-morning-after. The sip is slightly uncomfortable—not as weightless as typical seltzer, but dry, with a punch of fruit bitterness.
