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.

(8.4fl.oz. Can) Pours a cloudy pink grapefuit juice-like body with a moderate white head with good lacing. Aroma of raspberries and candy sugar. Flavor of sugary fruit-soda energy drink/ watered down wine cooler with a somewhat sticky mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2006 Bottle from <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Places/ShowPla target=blank>St. Veronus in Peterborough. Light pink in colour, pink coloured dissipating head, some lace. The aroma was very sweet, light lambic qualities. The flavour was rather cloying with all of the sweetness, some raspberries. Sour mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes lingering with a sugar sweetness.

Very artificial and strong taste of raspberry. The beer taste is hard to be found. The visual is nice, different... If I could turn back time, wouldn’t ask for this beer again.

an odd pink grapefruit appearance with small wispy head...aroma of an acidic lambic (nice sour and tart notes, not much raspberry)...flavor is nice but if u look closely to the ingredients you will see "aspartame" in there....that is a bit dissapointing, and therefore drops my rating a bit...also a bit metallic (probably because of the can)... not bad

Lubiere (10496) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
Gatorade pop pink beer with a thin white head. Sharp raspberry concentrate, almost like crystals. Horrible chemical taste, way too sweet. Barely cant taste anything else. Blahhh! Bought at Metro, Brussels, late april 2005.

This comes in tiny cans - like Red Bull cans. The little hole in the top helps give this an agressive pour and results in a fairly decent head on top of the strawberry peach body; good lacing too. Aroma is sweet sweetened raspberries. Thin body. Tart and citrusy sweet tart raspberry fruit sugar taste. Weird aftertaste - OH MY GOSH - Aspertame!?!?!? - what the..... ICK. I hate artificial sweeteners! ICK! I was actually starting to enjoy this until that tell-tale taste hit my tongue.

The Fruity Pink! Thanks JPDipso! (Recently found) Pours a dark red almost pink color, small white head. Flavor is like a raspberry soda, no alcohol, no charachter. Fruity Pink.

A raspberry white in a can? Hmm... interesting. What’s this? They actually admit to using artificial sweeteners and flavors? Now I’m getting worried. Better pour... Pours a cloudy pink with a creamy white head. Nice aroma of acidic raspberries, almost lambic-like. Taste is raspberries, aspartame, and dry toffee. Adding the sweetener to this beer was a HUGE mistake, in my opinion. Turns this beer into the bastard child of beer and "malternatives". However, looking past the sweetener, there’s not a whole lot of incredible flavor here anyways. So looking at the pink can, the figure on the can, and the overall advertising, this is Belgium’s adaptation of Smirnoff Ice. The ultimate chick beer. "The Fruity Pink"?!? That pretty much says it all, and that’s just what I’d probably call any guy I caught drinking this for pleasure. I’ll stick to something with hops intead of aspartame.
