New Beers I've Tried!

Harpoon Raspberry Hefeweizen ! I mean I loved Shock Top's Raspberry...But I feel as if Harpoon has been able to top it! Harpoon has this delicious clean taste to it, with a fresh raspberry flavor ending! I did prefer this one closer to room temperature then super cold from the fridge.

"We have added natural raspberry flavor to our UFO Hefeweizen to create this beer.  Consistent with the hefeweizen style, this beer is unfiltered and cloudy with a solid foamy head.  UFO Raspberry has a distinctive, hazy rose color.  The scent of fresh raspberries hits the nose immediately, along with a subtle bready aroma from the wheat and yeast.  The body is light and the unfiltered yeast provides a soft mouthfeel.  The taste of the fruit compliments the beer nicely, neither overwhelms the other.  There is a faint sweetness on the palate, which finishes cleanly in a semi-dry, tart finish.

Hefeweizens originated in Bavaria and date back over 400 years.  Hefemeans yeast in German, Weizen means wheat.  The unfiltered yeast remains in suspension, giving this style its signature cloudy color and a soft mouthfeel. "-
Harpoon Cider- If you like apple juice you will LOVE this beer! It tasted to me just like apple juice! Great super cold!
"Harpoon Cider is made from a blend of locally grown apples including the New England favorite, McIntosh. By fermenting this blend of varieties with our own yeast we are able to produce an aroma that has a clean, fruity character. This crisp, refreshing cider has just the right balance of ripe apple sweetness and tartness from the fruit’s natural acidity. The color of this smooth tasting cider is very light as a result of using only freshly pressed apples. Without the addition of preservatives, artificial colors, or sweeteners we have created a cider that is fresh, pure, and delicious. Enjoy!" -

I feel at times that they can describe it so muuuuuch better then I can. The Raspberry is currently on top of my recommendation list!
