Just like soda. With alcohol. If you like that "Sparks" malt beverage that comes in a can and has a guy eating a lightning bolt on the label, you'll like this beer. The artifical raspberry flavor is reminiscent of Lindeman's framboise, but on the whole this drink is lighter, fizzier, spritzier. With the new packaging in a Red Bull sized 8oz can, and the pink colors, its very obvious what crowd this beer is marketed to. The best thing about this is you can seriously POUND it. Wittekerke Rosé goes down so easily and is so light I'm sure I could handle a pitcher of it. But I like sweet drinks so that would be easy for me. This is what it is, (an artifically flavored malt beverage) so dont have super high expectations of an authentic Belgian whit, and dont compare it to such, and then you will enjoy Rosé just fine.

3.1/5  rDev +20.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

1.35/5  rDev -47.5%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1

Bottle served into a La Chouffe tulip. Reviewed from notes taken July 2010. 4.3% ABV confirmed.

A: Pours a two finger head of slight cream and fair thickness. Retention is average. Body colour is a solid light red.

Sm: Artificial raspberry, an overload of sugar, and syrup. An unfortunately quite strong aroma.

T: Tastes like artificial crap raspberry, cultist suicide style koolaid (just drink it!), and overloaded garbage sugar and nasty syrup. Cough! Not really a true beer at all. I'm embarrassed to be seen drinking this. simply crap. Poorly built and balanced, with no redeemable characteristics. The finish is a sort of dying sugar-high stale note. Cough syrup comes through.

Mf: Very smooth and wet. Helps the disgusting flavours slide down.

Dr: 1.50 euro is high considering the pathetic state of the taste. Not a worthy beer at all. This is a damned embarrassment. Avoid at all costs.

**I just want to point out that this was terrible but I did not drainpour it. I finished it because I'm not a panzy. Remember: there are sober kids in India; nut up and finish your damn beer.

Cellar temp can poured into a snifter. the beer pours a brightish pink like a blush wine with some light frothy head of about 1 cm foaming up. Fades to a large wispy island in the middle of a thin edge layer.
Sits with a bit more amber color in the glass.
Aroma is sweet raspberry and a little grain but mostly sweet fruit.
First sip reveals a light body with minimal tiny carbonation. Texture is thin to watery and the beer goes down with almost no effort.
Flavor is sweet raspberry, like a sugary candy, jolly rancher maybe? Not much else on the flavor profile, does linger a bit on my palate. Finish is a little dry.
Overall the beer is very easy to drink and might not be terrible on a hot day if you can get by the sweetness. Im not a huge fan, but dont consider it a drainpour or anything like that.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a slightly cloudy, rosy apricot amber with a thin white head that slowly dissipates to a ring around the glass, no lacing. Aroma of raspberries and not much else, but the fruit aroma is quite nice. Flavor is tart and sweet raspberry, very faint neutral malt. The berry flavor is nice, but this is far too sweet; basically an over sweetened fruit juice with a thin malt body. Light bodied. I had to try it, but our relationship ends here. Cloying sweet, but I have to give it credit for being pretty much as it presents itself.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Bottle 300 ml, ABV on the label is 4.3%. World Beer Awards sign on the label as Europe's Best Fruit Wheat Beer.

It pours a hazy pink colour, wit a one finger white-pinkish head with a good retention. Lots of bubbles in.
Strong aroma of raspberries.Quite artificial though, it smells like those vitamin tablets that get dissolved in water.
Very sweet in taste, and that sweetness stays in your mouth for quite long.
Very thin in body and quite carbonated.
Overall, too bad that I could only buy this one in a package of six, and now I have to drink five more.

Pours a very hazy apricot hue which leaves a fast vanishing one finger head and little lacing with a rim aswell,the smell is very sweet too sweet actually with aromas of raspberries and mainly that with also some fresh soft lollies and wildberries,the mouthfeel is lightbodied and tart with tastes of mainly raspberries that really dominate and dont let much else in apart from candied wheat and lots of sugar it really does remind me of a girls drink and i dont think i really need to say to more if i want to be polite cheers.

Wittekerke Rose

Pours a light cloudy pink color, light pink foam. Aromas of berries and a small portion of wheat malt. In the taste, berry sweetness, sugar, cola like carbonation and a little yeast. Alcoholic wheat berry soda. Mouthfeel is light bodied with spritzy carbonation. Overall, a fruit beer that is geared towards female consumption.

Serving type: on-tap

A - Pours a hazy pink body with a white foamy head. Has huge bubbly lace and the retention was great!

S - Has a huge raspberry scent and vaguely some yeast. It smells like a raspberry syrup (the one you mix with water).

T - This is lemonade, very sweet from the start with raspberries of course. To sweet for me. Could have been nice, but this is for kids. The sweetness and raspberry flavor kills any other hints within the beer itself. If someone would have said that it was raspberry 7-up, I would have believed it.

M - Medium carbonation and light in body.

O - Could have bene nice, but this is for kids. A bit more hops would have helped this beer and maybe a bit more sourness too.
