The story of the jam jars gave us an idea. Hoegaarden Rosée. It might be pink but it is very much a wheat beer. It also features the soft taste and subtle colour of raspberries. And while it doesn’t feature a higher alcohol percentage, it does mean you can enjoy it even more in the sun.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, unmalted wheat, fruits (10%), raspberry (6%), sugar, sweetener, hops, yeast.

pours a murky pinkish amber with a frothy white head and some lacing. aroma of raspberry jam, flavour of fruits, yeast, grass. not cloyingly sweet like some other raspberry-flavoured beers, but the artificial sweetener aftertaste is present.

250 ml bottle bought at 7-Eleven on Lock Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Cloudy, hazy dull rose red colour with a layer of dirt like yeast sediements; One quarter finger head with soapy off white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Good sticky lacing and zero carbonation; Fragrant aroma of light malt, with strong wheat, strong tartness, vegetable juice, light raspberry, coriander, light citrus peels, sugar and strong yeast; Mid to light sweet taste of light malt, with strong wheat, light tartness, light raspberry, assorted berry juice, very light sugar, yeast and thin lemon; Close to light body, slightly slick and juicy palate; Mouth feel is fair maltyness with fairly strong wheat in a slightly thick background. Low tartness, berry juice taste all around but pretty low-fi, so does the sweetness. Yeasty and light lemon to round. Quite alright… Hoppiness is citrus peels in nose, and very light lemon in taste. No bitterness, just light berry wheaty finish; Slightly dry after taste. Very easy and wheaty to mouth.

Comments: I was expecting something very sweet and fake, but it turns out quite the opposite: the basic Hoegaarden Wit base holds up well, and the infused raspberry and fruit juice are understated with very low sweetness. Not as Summer-like as it seems, but it’s agreeable and drinkable.

Piana biała średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko się redukuje i lekko zdobi szkło. Barwa przypomina mi sok z grejpfruta. Jest mocno zmętnione. Aromat bez niespodzianek. Maliny, lekka róża i gdzieś w tle aromat jasnych słodów. Całość aromatu jest lekko słodka. Na szczęście nie męcząco słodka. W smaku o dziwo nie ma malin na początku. Jest słodowe, lekkie delikatnie czuć cytrusy a dopiero po chwili maliny. Posmak bardzo przypomina mi domowe soki z malin. Świetny balans. Piwo nie męczy słodkością ale też nie jest to sok rozrobiony piwem. Wysycenie bardzo lekkie, oczywiście brak goryczki. Dosyć wodniste i stosunkowo pijalne. Co prawda nie są to moje klimaty ale piwo nie jest złe.

0,5l Dose. Rosa-orange Farbe mit pinkem cremigem Schaum. Frischer Himbeerduft mit Zitronennote. Antrunk fruchtig. Die Himbeere dominiert. Vom Witbier ist leider nicht allzuviel zu schmecken. Erinnert an ein Fromboise.

Bottle bought on clearance from Tesco (this should have been the required warning!). Bottle corked champagne style, opens with a good pop. Pours very fizzy and lively. Colour dusky pink, lively head. Aroma of candy floss and raspberry. Tastes just slightly of the base wheat, with overpowering cloying sweetness of berries and meringue.

Artificial raspberry aroma, grayish and reddish pink colour, long lasting small sized creamy off-white head, light body, average carbonation, sweet sugary and sour raspberry taste, raspberry and ester palate. Smooth.

tbonde (261) - DENMARK - SEP 21, 2015
25cl from tap@Spa Francorchamps in plastic cup@approx 7 degrees C. Pours slightly hazy pink with white head with sufficient retention. Sweet aroma of somewhat artificial raspberry. Taste quite sweet with a hint of yeast and witbeer shining through the too dominant raspberry sour-sweetness. Short aftertaste the same. Watery texture and mouthfeel. More like raspberry pop than beer. Refreshing but uninteresting.

From the can. Pours hazy pink with white head. Sweet and red fruits. A bit wheat mouth feel and slightly bready finish. Reasonable but too "fruit refreshment"
