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.

Highly carbonated, sugary sweet (or should I say faux-sugary sweet), and altogether a god awful beverage. This is not beer. This should not be classified as a beer. You look at the body of the woman on the bottle.....I could wrap my forefinger and thumb around her waist, from the same hand, and make contact with the two - so you know she ain’t gulping this garbage down

Poured a light pink with fluffy white head. Wheaty, light raspberry flavor with definitive bubblegum notes. Tastes like a wine cooler. I like fruit beers but this one is a bit too girly for me.

Bottle:   Pinkish hued pale amber, huge frothy white head with a pink hue, spotty lacing.   Preserve like berry nose.   I would say Raspberry, but its very candyish and artificial.   To be expected I guess.   Sweet artificial Raspberry flavors on the tongue.   I also get a bit of that broken berry leave, or maybe raspberry vine on the nose as I drink this.   Odd for such an artifial beer.   Its sweet, with a moderate body, flavorwise its certainly like a Raspberry Mamba type candy.   Its not bad, but its certainly not as tasty as New Glarus.   Could stand to be more authentic, without all that pectin or candyish flavors and aromas.

Very tasty fruit beer. Cloudy appearance, otherwise well rounded beer. Recommendable.

Wittales (564) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 24, 2013
People need to rate by style( BJCP guidelines) not preference. Appearance was pink red with tiny white diminishing creamy head, no lacing. Aromas are sweet raspberry ,sour barnyard yeast, slight sweet pale malt. Taste are simple sour raspberry cream soda-like with wine tannins backend. Palate was champagne smooth CO2 with light body, lasting berry sour puckering finish. A easy drinking fruit brew, very light and sessionable.

One of the worst framboise, if you can call this a beer at all. Tastes more like sparkling raspberry syrup. Very sweet, almost no bitterness and no sourness.

At a tasting, small bubbley head, murky light red to dark orange colour, aroma and flavour of industrial raspberry syrup, light sourness and just traces of bitterness. Not beer.

VoodooBear (42) - San Juan, PUERTO RICO - MAR 10, 2013
Presentation: 250 mL slim can, served in an oversized wine glass. No freshness date anywhere. Appearance: Very thin, bubbly head that disappears almost instantly. It has a very nice, cloudy, light pink color. Smell: The scent is dominated by raspberries, more artificial than anything. Nothing else. Taste: Tastes mainly of raspberries. It’s very sweet, and there’s a little bit of malt. Mouthfeel: Smooth and light. Feels sticky on the palate due to the sweetness. Good carbonation. Overall: A very simple and fun beverage. Calling it a "beer" is reaching a bit. Nevertheless, it’s very refreshing and nice to drink. Definitely worth keeping a couple of cans around for when you want to drink something different but don’t necessarily want a "real" beer.
