Description

Start brewing bad with Walter Wheat!  The ultimate wheat beer that you can make legally... at home... without robbing a train to get the ingredients.  We perfected our secret formula but unlike W.W., we are willing to share. We started with a tradtional wheat malt mixed with regular malted barley to get that perfect wheat/barley blend. Then we left tradtional and added some modern scientific twists that might just set the standard for Wheat Beers.  We use acidulated malt and melanoidin malts to add malty crispness (yes malty crispness). Our super complex hop list of Simcoe, Cascade, and Amarillo hops puts a lot of pop in this beer. And then of course we had to mellow it out a little with a dose of Crystal hops in the finish.  

The super secret ingredient? Ok, ok we'll tell you that too....  Brewing Bad Rock Candy added at the end of the boil. These blue raspberry sugar crystals lend a raspberry flavor that completely blends in to add complexity, depth, and we think a little pizazz, but in no way over powers the beer.  You won't be thinking Raspberry Wheat, you'll just be wondering how you can get more. 

And while a kick ass brewing lab would be a great place to make this beer, you can actually do it right on your stove top, in the kitchen, with the windows open. It might not be as profitable, but we guarantee a whole lot of fun.  You better get brewing... 

Note - The recipe kit will come with 2 oz of the raspberry rock candy, but if you'd like to add more that will need to be ordered separately from the options below.

After 3 weeks of conditioning, " Walter" turned out great Has a smooth texture and a mild wheat taste. I cut back 1/2 of the raspberry which left a milder flavor. Great buy for $19 and will re-order again

Meh
This was OK at best. While I raved about the Strawberry Blonde, I thought this would be great in the summer. But, I just don' t like American Wheat Ales. Plus is was sugary sweet, which isn't for me.

excellent
Cool concept with the blue crystal candy, Walt's signature product. I boiled the candy for the entire 60 minutes by mistake, which made it smell a bit like candy and taste that way. I see the the other reviews that said they could not taste the candy. Try brewing it for 60 minutes instead of the last 5. Ran out of this beer fast will brew again.

Good summer beer
This is a very nice and light beer. I when with a wheat beer yeast and can I think that gave me a better outcome. I will brew this one again.

It's a wheat....
this beer is alright. For the price it's great and can't beat that name. If you truly want the raspberry flavor with a wheat base pick up morebeer's berry beer (one of my wife's all time favorites). I mashed a little on the lower end. Came out very clean, a little more bitter than I would expect for a wheat, and no hint of the raspberry crystals. It's a great session brew and pretty simple. I used California ale yeast - might mix it up a little next time to see if I could get some more unique flavors in.

Save your money
I ordered this kit and waited for it to be shipped,( back ordered). No big deal. While I was waiting my wife ordered me a kit as well . When I recieved it I was very excited to brew it. Mashed at a slightly higher temp than recommended, my preference for my taste. I added all of the blue crystals from both kits into one batch, can barely smell the raspberry, can't taste any.
Regardless,A very cool concept but essentially it is a wheat beer, plain and simple.
