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.

Pink grapefruit juice colour with billowy stark white head. Tart raspberry nose. Sweet raspberry taste with lingering sweet syrupy finish.

Pour is a dirty water brown with a small white head. Aroma is a pleasant raspberry with not much else. Flavor is way sweet. Like drinking a raspberry smoothy that melted. This is like a raspberry puree with some sugar added. At least the aroma was nice.

ulrikolsen (368) - DENMARK - SEP 23, 2016
Tap. Pours hazy pink/golden with fading white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with raspberry up front, notes of malt and winegum. Taste is semi-sweet and fruity with raspberry, peachy undertone and a light malty finish. Quite light and semi-sweet finish.

Fules (826) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 11, 2016
Pici habocskája gyorsan eltűnik. Színe rózsaszínbe hajló narancssárga. Illata nagyon finom, gyümölcsös, a málna dominanciájával, a háttérben nemi komlós aromával. Az íze málnaorgazmus, némi búzasörös aromával. Tökéletesen eltalált egyensúly, a legfinomabb málnás sör. Rendkívül frissítő, valamint testes sör, az alacsony alkohol tartalom ellenére.

Icedwarf (1303) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2016
Troebel rose bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is erg zoet, lijkt eerder op limonade dan bier. Framboos komt wel heel duidelijk naar boven en komt niet chemisch over. Niet mijn stijl.

sjorsvdg (434) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2016
In het aroma en in het smaakpalet zitten duidelijk echte frambozen. Dat blijkt ook uit de ingrediëntenlijst en dat spreekt voor dit brouwsel. Verder is er weinig aan dit bier. De aspartaam geeft er een onaangenaam zoete laag aan. Hop of graan zijn niet waarneembaar.

MrOrla (2301) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2016
Sample c4. Pours orange/pink with a white head. Aroma of cheap gummibears, quite sweet, fruity, artificial. Taste is sweet, gummibears, overly sweet. Alcopop

Drank from a pint glass poured from a bottle, thank you Björn! Has a nice smooth cherry aroma. A really good Framboise! Delicious!

seymour (1897) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2016
On tap at Bailey’s Chocolate Bar, how cool is that?! Tastes a lot like Lindemans Framboise or any other raspberry blended lambic you’ve had. About that: it’s completely unfair Lindemans gets a weighted average 93 and this gets 13, it’s delicious! Mix of Belgian Wit and diluted lambic flavours. Faint lactobacillus yogurty bite. Crisp and light, a great balance of sweet and tart, fruity and funky, hint of black pepper and clove, even a woody, noble perfumey aspect. Spritzy Champagne-like carbonation but still a relatively soft mouthfeel. Highly recommended.

GoufCustom (1649) - HONG KONG - JAN 1, 2016

250ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Cloudy hazy pinkish rose colour with a thin crust of yeast sediments; One-quarter finger head and white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Very Good sticky lacing with near zero carbonation; Fragrant aroma of light malt, with strong wheat, strong raspberry, strong black current / Ribena, hint of vinegar, rhubarb, light sugar, cream cracker, yeast and light citrus; Close to medium sweet taste of very light malt, with light wheat, thinned raspberry juice, strong aspartame, yeast, and thin lemon; Mid to light body, slick palate; Mouth feel is very light maltyness in a slick background, overwhelmed by watered-down raspberry juice. Sweetness is not sugar but strong aspartame from Diet Coke, so it’s thin but unnaturally sweet. Faint lemon to close. Iffy… Hoppiness is thin lemon in nose and taste. No bitterness, just detectable citrus astringency and watery finish; Wet after taste. Very easy and sweet to mouth.

Comments: As if the Wittekerke proper isn’t impressive already, this cocktailmakes things worse with watery raspberry and sweetened with aspartame, my pet hate. Lowly and barely drinkable, I won’t touch this again.
