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.

MiP (14046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2006
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.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2006
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.

Beerdedone (2901) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Can Sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours a hazy orange pink color with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, raspberries. Flavor is sour and overly sweet.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2006
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.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2006
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.

piscator34 (2081) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 13, 2006
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.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2006
LCRBM: Pink in colour. Grapefruit syrup look. Sweet, sugary and over the top. Not great.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2006
pours a hazy orange pink color, with a quickly disapating off-white head.aroma is sweet, fermented raspberry aroma. flavor is sour upfront, followed by a super sweet finish (overly sweet) thin body, just ok.

MoritzF (8676) - GERMANY - JAN 26, 2006
(bottle) Hazy pinkish body with a big foamy pink head. Artificially sugary sweet raspberry aroma. Sweet artificial raspberry taste with a soapy and perfumed finish. Never again.

(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.
