COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also marketed as Rosarda in the UK
A blend of regular Wittekerke, the best Belgian wheat beer, known for its fruity aroma and taste, together with 10% of the purest Raspberry fruit, and a dash of the Petrus Aged Pale ale, the original mother beer that is aged in oak for up to 3 years. This combination is made in heaven, beer-heaven at the Bavik brewery in Belgium.

330 ml bottle into pint glass, 401022 bottle code. Pours hazy/cloudy reddish orange color with a 1-2 finger dense light pint head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of sweet, juicy, and lightly tart raspberry; pear, apple, wheat, bread, light coriander/clove, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of raspberry, bready malt, and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of juicy, sweet, and lightly tart raspberry; pear, apple, wheat, bread, light coriander/clove, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Minimal yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raspberry, pear, apple, wheat, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and balance of raspberry, bready malt, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.3%. Overall this is a good standard tasting fruit beer. All around good robustness and balance of raspberry, pale malt, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. I was hoping for more pronounced witbier character against the fruit flavors; but it was still pleasantly enjoyable.

This ain’t beer, this is lemonade. Sweet raspberry lemonade, with some remnants of what should be a wheat beer.

This raspberry beer is a refreshing and mouthwatering beer, which can also maintain a small amount of white and persistent foam. The aroma is a little fruit acid and the taste is of course marked by raspberries. It is not as sweet as it first seems, but has a good acid balance which makes it not become too sweet.

On tap at the Bier Markt in Ottawa. Lots of raspberry and strawberry flavours. Not a bad summer beer.

mutz (713) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2015
Troebel rosebruinig, weinig kraag. Ruikt sterk naar cerise en smaakt ook zo. Helaas weinig pit en een weeige afdonk.

Smager meget af frugt, ligesom den skal. Er let syrlig men godt kold er den rigtig god.

rondphoto (2939) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 5, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy medium amber with a rose blush, white rim head, tiny lace dots. Aroma of malt and semi-sweet raspberry. Taste is refreshing grain and raspberry, a clear, palate-cleansing aperitif. Well-conceived and executed.

Pours hazy, almost no head, red grapefruit color. Taste and aroma dominated by rapsberries. A bit too sweet.

Vighals (2069) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2015
Orangebrun, kanskje et lite rosaskjær. Lett tåkete med tykt fingerhøyt hvitt skum. Lukter jordbær og bringebær. Søt, fruktig noe kunstig smak med svært lett bitterhet. Kort. Medium kullsyre
