WHITEHORSE, YK – Yukon Brewing is celebrating the summer with its latest limited edition beer, Razz-a-ma-Tazz Raspberry Wheat Ale.
This new seasonal brew uses a similar base recipe to previous Yukon wheat beers such as Grizzly Ale and Deadman Creek, but with a few differences:
First of all, we used some unmalted toasted wheat in the grain bill, which is more typical of a white (or ‘wit’) beer. This carries a bit of doughy flavour into the final product. Then, we added the raspberry (100% raspberry puree) during the fermentation, allowing some of the raspberry sugars to ferment. Finally, we filtered the final product to release a bit more of the raspberry flavour to the palate. But, make no mistake, this is a beer first, with the raspberry complementing rather than dominating the flavours. It is light, it is clean, it is perfect for sunny summer days.
Razz-a-ma-Tazz is available now in growlers at the brewery while supplies last.
