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.

stravale (2103) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle from Tesco [301013]
Pink, very hazy, thin white head
Aroma of strong sweet raspberry, nothing else
Taste - Raspberry, artficial notes, sweeteners, not as much raspberry as the aroma. spolit with the artificial chemical tones
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, smooth, quite creamy, very sweet. Finish as main flavour
Overall - Very 1D for me, raspberry and artificial sweeteners, lost interest in this very quickly

allmyvinyl (3361) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2013
250ml bottle at home. Pours hazy reddish-pink with no head. Gentle carbonation. Aromas of raspberries and cream. Taste has more of the same. Pretty one-dimensional. Artificial sweetener comes through the more it goes down, leading to an astringent bitterness. Didn’t really enjoy this.

kraddel (3132) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2013
cellar leftover . 2010 vintage .. pours light fuzzy pink . no head ( age ? ) smell is straigt arteficial raspberrys low carbo. very sugary, sweet, raspberry-candy taste . nothing taste more wrong with this than it should have been fresh , i supose. still tastes more like fruitjuice-candy than beer . the taste definetly reminds me of a kind of candy that is very common in belgium ( the red ones ) . drinkable, not respectable

jamesie1857 (1397) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
250ml bottle from Tesco - Pink cloudy body, frothy top. A bit chemical on the nose, but rich enough in the taste to compensate.

SarkyNorthener (1955) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle. Hazy pinkish brown beer with small head. Aroma of raspberry jelly. Taste is sweet raspberry and some slight sourness in there. Quite nice and not overpowered with the artificial sweetness that some fruit beers have. Decent.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2068) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 31, 2013
Past date, on sale at Barley wine, Copenhagen.  4.3% a pinkish amber pour with a foamy white head. The aroma Is sweet cherry. A super fruity beer, cherry & raspberry, sugary but not all that cloying. A hit with my wife.

25 cL can at home. Pours clear pale pink with a small, bubbly white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is cracker malt and raspberry. Flavor is raspberry forward and dominant with supporting malt and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

EtTuCthulhu (1049) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 17, 2013
The color of this brew is a hazy orangeish pink with a large white head, and the aroma is an overwhelmingly sweet blend of raspberries. The taste is nice blend of a heavy sweetness and a slight sourness, and the palate combines a medium body, fizzy carbonation, slick texture, and an abrupt finish.
