Bottle. Slightly cloudy, pink colour. Small stable pink head. Sweet flavour, quite a lot of raspberry. Slight acidity and aspartam in aftertaste. Starts off OK, but gets yucky after a while.

2.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty tart. In fact, a little too tart for my taste. It’s a shame, because Wittekerke is my favorite Wit, and I had high hopes for this Rose, but it was an overly tart disappointment. Further, it lacked the interesting aroma or character of a Lindemans Framboise, but then again, it’s 1/5th the price. It came in a pink can, by the way.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pink with a nice white, crispy froth that settles quickly. Not unlike a hot pink teddy with white lace. Great raspberry flavors. Has a nice sweetness and it’s not sour like a Lambic. Very refreshing and DANGEROUSLY easy to drink. Better than any American cooler. A hit with the girls. Highly recommended. My girlfriend loves it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Hazy orange-pink body under a frothy white head. Lots of carbonation. Bonus points for not being filtered. Straightforward aroma of tart raspberries and coffee cake. It smells very nice, really - fresh off the bush. The flavor is dissapointing as the raspberries are less sweet and bold giving way to sugar cookie and light grassy bitterness. Acidic lemony, metallic finish. The mouthfeel is fizzy but it has some viscosity to keep the flavor around. This stuff isn’t bad for a fruit beer targeted at youngsters as there’s still some complexity to it and it’s tart instead of sweet.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark pink in colour with strong carbonation. Raspberry and cooked sugar aromas. Very sweet raspberry flavor and thick body. It tasted like melted down wine gum candies. Very cloying indeed. Perhaps a good after dinner beer for someone with a massive sweet tooth, but not appealing for me.
