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.

Lowenbrau (2098) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 22, 2014
25cl bottle @Ca Beleño, Oviedo. In short: a syrupy, cloying "fruit" beer. Pours hazy orange-pinkish, with frothy light reddish head. Artificial, candy, sugary aromas. Light body, averageto high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is too sweet, fruity, no tartness at all, artificial flavours. Poor one.

dogbomb (960) - ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Rosarda branded. Pours a pinky rose opaque colour with a think light pink head. Very much a raspberry beer from the smell. Not much else coming through. Thankfully the fruit is not too sweet and not too tart in the taste, and it ends up being quite a pleasant malty blend of raspberry and sweet balancing malts. Still sickly enough to make this a sipper and a single-bottle enjoyment... but not sickly enough to make me feel queasy - I hope!

Osprey87 (1946) - WALES - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle BB May 2014. Pinky red, sparkling, small white head, white lacing. Smell - strong raspberry concentrate...there may be other aromas to report but they are certainly secondary to the raspberry. Body - medium, quite foamy, low carbonation. Taste - semi-sweet raspberry is balanced against pale malts. Feels like more of a mix than the ’Fruli’ beer I had before it. Not bad.

tommann (2808) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2013
250ml bottle. Pours pinky orange with a medium head. Aroma is fruits of the forest yoghurt. Taste has fruits of the forest yoghurt. Simple and drinkable.

gegwilson (1371) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle from Tesco. Part of a tasting with Pix. Cloudy red beer with a thin white head. Sweet raspberry aroma. Lots of sweet raspberry taste before quite a nasty artificial sweetener finish. Almost no beer character and watery too.

stravale (2224) - 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 (3953) - 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 (3542) - 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
