Saint Arnold Brewing Co.’s newest release was the clear winner after eight different incarnations were taste-tested.

The beer is named Raspberry AF, a 3.7 percent ABV berliner weisse-style ale conditioned on 3,000 pounds of raspberry purée. The new ale uses the Houston, Texas-based brewery’s Boiler Room Berliner Weisse (3.7 percent ABV) as its base, and incorporates the equivalent of 405,000 individual raspberries in each beer batch.

Saint Arnold Raspberry AF 12-Ounce Cans Label Feature

“This beer is the most technically challenging that we brew between the kettle souring and the secondary fermentation with raspberries,” said Brock Wagner, Saint Arnold founder and brewer, in a press release. “It is important to me that we use only real raspberries as opposed to a fruit extract even though the raspberries are several times more expensive. The result is an amazingly refreshing yet bright and fruity beer.”

According to the press release, Raspberry AF will be packaged in 12-ounce cans will will begin shipping to retailers across Saint Arnold’s distribution network in Texas and Louisiana staring next week.
