2.75/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

250ml bottle:

Poured a cloudy pink-gold with a rose cap.

Promising aroma: some biscuit, spice and fruit and earthy tones.

Flavor was a letdown. Fruit and sweetness predominate and obliterate any other flavours. The sweetness seems synthetic as well. I had looked forward to this one as I like Wittekerke witbier and thought this was a sort of wit cocktail with fruit and Petrus red.

....but it is simply far too sweet to define any complexity at all.

Labeled Wittekerke Framboise, but this has to be the infamous fruity pink. I was saddened to learn that this has a portion of Petrus Aged Pale blended into this beer. I can't believe it. It's a dirty pink color. This beer should be called aspartame 101. The aroma is vaguely of a bottom-shelf raspberry liqueur. Sweetener and fizzy diet raspberry tea taste. Eddie Vedder said it best when he cried out in the song Black: WHY?

This beer was consumed at Brixies in Brookfield Il. A female friend of mine went to order a bottle of Duchesse de Bourgogne, found out they were out, and mistakenly let the bartender convince her that this beer was similar in taste. When she couldn't drink much of it, I decided to drink it as I rarely get the chance to review a beer I wouldn't order for myself and thought it would be a good exercise in taste.

It was poured from the bottle into a pretty cool frosted glass Wittekerke glass; possibly the best thing about this beer. It pours an almost unnatural rosy/pink with a bright white head.

The smell is of completely sweet raspberries, the smell is right on the border between whether its just backsweetened natural fruit or a sickly artificial flavoring but in my mind the artificial fruit is winning.

I know the side of the bottle was labeled something to the effect of 'Adult Malt Beverage' but I didn't expect to be tasting something to the effect of Raspberry Smirnoff Ice. It is very similar to a raspberry iced tea and doesn't have any beer-like qualities. I've had plenty of fruit flavored beer and even the most artificial flavored ones I could at least find the beer behind the flavoring, not in this one.

To me the beer wasn't that carbonated and added to my allusion to raspberry iced tea, it was also as thin as water but at the same time it was as drinkable as it too.

Now that I'm at home and can look up the beer I can see by the marketing on the website who this beer is targeted to, 8-12 year old European girls. They achieve their goal of a beverage for prepubescent teens but has as much of a beer merit as any Smirnoff Ice flavor. The beer glass was pretty cool though.

2.17/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Pours a pinkish orange with about a finger of whitish head. Plenty of beading and carbonation is evident, resulting in plenty of head retention though not much lacing. The aroma is flagrantly artificial with a bittersweet herbal twang and light essence of raspberry. This is not a brew for the type of people who actually smell beer. Moderately sweet yet awkwardly bitter in a way that is not hoppy, like somebody put a packet of Sweet N Low in it. Syrupy raspberry-like flavor that does not quite taste like raspberries, very artificial. Flavor disappoints low expectations. Light in body but with an acceptably creamy carbonation. I purchased this out of sheer novelty and it was nothing more than that. Avoid.

Thanks to AKBelgianBeast for this one. Yeah it came as a package for the loser of the LNBA FF, and I lost.

Poured into a mini hefe tasting glass.
A- Cloudy yellow with a hint of pink thrown into the beer, this gives the beer a feminine glow.The head is very white and lasts for a while. Also as far as a can appearance if your a guy and your buying this I bet you don't mind getting your prostate examined by some guy with large....fingers.

S- I can smell the raspberry smell from a distance of two feet. There is something effervescent about it too.

T- I can seriously say that I lost some man points with this one. This just tastes fake, in that flavored condom kinda way. (I'll let that last sentence simmer in your mind for a while.) There is almost a nutrasweet after taste to this one too.

M- This has a thick, yet thin feeling that I'm sure appeals to a variety of jail inmates.

D- The only way to take this beer is in the can.

Isn't the can of Wittekerke Rosé awesome? You'd think the slender 8.4 ounce can was some kind of energy drink that donates a portion of the proceeds to breast cancer. Instead, it is a raspberry infused witbier. Did I mention the raspberry was artifical flavor? On to the beer:

Well, the color of the beer has a raspberry infused orange color to it, hazy. The head color has a pink tint to it, and it has surprisingly good head retntion and forms good patchy lace. It kind of smells like raspberries, and it's not bad at all. Maybe I was wrong about this beer...

....or maybe not. It tastes like lightly flavored cough syrup to me, which isn't the worst taste in the world, but it sure doesn't taste like beer. I can also taste a bit of iron. Come to think of it, it does kind of taste like a raspberry energy drink. It feels sticky in the mouth like one, and as a beer I prefer it didn't.

Well...I managed to get all 8.4 ounces down of this 4.3% ABV drink. It sure isn't as fun to drink as Wittekerke w/o all the added shit, but what other alcoholic beverage out there can you get for less than Red Bull, yet who's label looks like an energy drink? This must be good for drinking in public places and driving.

Dinky 8.4 oz can. "Brewed with artificial sweetener". Oops.

Pours into my glass with a pink grapefruit color with a bit of haze and a pure white head.

The smell is like diet raspberry soda.

It tastes like diet raspberry soda, not like beer. Awful really.

It has a decent mouthfeel. Drinkability is bad.

Is this beer?

Serving type: 250ml bottle, bought at the LCBO

Poured a hazy pink, with about a 2 inch foam head.
This was the first fruit beer I've tasted. It was extreamly sweet, as expected.
Tasted like one of those coolers you can buy. I really don't think they needed to add the Aspertame to it.
I guess the taste was ok if you like fruity drinks.

1.8/5  rDev -30.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

A- Agressively poured from the can to yield a 3/4" stark-white head, which slowly receded to a sustained haze layer and some nice lacing. The body was highly carbonated and sedimented pink-orange color. Little red chunks were observed riding the bubble trains. These red chunks appeared to be somewhat artificial, like food coloring that didn't dissolve into solution. The carbonation also seemed a bit artificial- more abundant than I would anticipate naturally if it were naturally carbonated.

S- Smells of cloyingly sweet synthesized raspberry and artificially tart citric aromas. It smells extactly like a sweet-tart candy... more like a soft drink than beer.

T- Tastes tart up-front, and a faint artificial sweetness plays second fiddle. Some bland synthesized raspberry flavor comes-in midway, and there is no finish to speak-of; once swallowed, all flavor immediately disappears from the palate.

M- Thin to medium body. Overatenuated and overcarbonated. Not impressive... but there is SOME viscocity here nonetheless. A mark below average may be generous on my part.

D- I did not enjoy this at all. I found it to be all-around underwhelming and in some ways offensive. On the other hand, my wife thoroughly enjoyied this, and finished my glass.

One of a make-your-own 6 pack of cans my parents brought back from recent trip Stateside.
250ml. Tall and thin pink can, with a flourescent yellow shadow of a long-haired, thin-waisted girl. "Belgian White Beer with Raspberries - Rose, The Fruity Pink".
Best before date stamped on bottom of can.
Hazy pink liquid topped with a lighter pink pile of foam. Low retention, some thin lace strings. The smell was full of raspberries, clean and fresh, not overly artificial. Abit of yeast aroma, but was overtaken by the fruitiness.
Lots of raspberry fruity flavor. Slightly tart finish. Bubbly, light mouthfeel, like a Fanta Cream Soda. Sweet finish, a good dessert beer, would be tough to have more than one in a sitting.

Pours an artificial looking pink/orange color with a fizzy head that actually lasts a good while. The smell is of sour cherries, sherbert and a faint chemical note that reminds me of aerosol hairspray. The taste is very sweet, cloyingly so. Raspberry juice mixes with a grotesque aspartame flavor. This is as much a diet soda as a beer, or even moreso. The mouthfeel is thin and unpleasant from the extreme sweetness. The finish is filled with aspartame.

This is a trainwreck of a beer. I hate aspartame and it abounds in this one. Pass vociferously.

Bottle: Poured a clear light pinkish color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and average lacing. Aroma of raspberry syrup with light tart notes. Taste is quite sweet though not overly with some syrupy raspberries and a very faint tart finish. Not as bad as expected or as bad as other Belgian fruit beers but not the greatest drink ever.

My "CAN Ya Dooit?" quest took me to D's 6 Pax & Hot Dogz in Da 'Burgh, which never disappoints. I remember drinking this one with a Bosnian girlfriend when we were both undergarduates at Pitt. That is now eight years removed, so when I saw it in the Beer Cave, I jumped on the chance to have it again.

"Belgian White Beer with Raspberries - the Fruity Pink" - that was its tagline, and since I am solid in my sexuality, it does not bother me to drink such things. Plus, it was in a CAN and it was summertime when I will drink anything that is NOT Hefeweizen. The CAN looked like an early iPod ad with a lime-green female in silhouette, hair streaming behind her, against a reddish-pink background. The only thing missing was two white cords running into her ears. Okay, sorry.

My pour sreated two fingers' worth of pinkish-white head the color of blossoms on cherry trees, but with low retention. Color was a hazy light-pink like pink lemonade. The nose had a HUGE raspberry scent which instantly transported me back to Grummy Chandler's garden. Mouthfeel was full with a definite raspberry/fruity flavor, like the recent Tastykake Summerberry pies. Finish had a big fruitiness, with a slight tartness at the extreme finish. This was way too sweet to be anything more than a dessert beer or one to share with a female companion.

Ha! Had to read the ingredients label to find out the "pink" flavour is raspberry. Pours a mostly clear pink anyway, with fizzy white head that runs away screaming. Nose is pretty fruity, sweet berries and a bit of nondescript beeriness. Kinda floral too. Tastes like cotton candy. I'm sure I know some people who would think this is a fantastic beverage, but these would not be beer drinkers. It's not bad tasting or anything, but the beer component is really just in the abv. I would call this a "beer cooler" if anything. Nutrition label also says it contains 1.5g of fibre per bottle too, so it's good for you.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

Pink lemonade with an almost bronze filament. Its head is stable and fuzzy with a soft pastel pinkish hue. Lacing remains spattered, at least temporarily. Pleasantly animate bubbles tirelessly mount the upright slope of the flute glass. The light extracts unusual shades, soft pastel tones of peaches, pinks and beiges that - artificially created or not - make a stunning looking beer.

Ah man, you can taste the corn. Yuck. Each sip the palate is stormed with a short-lived but intense, dizzying barrage of sweetness that quickly evaporates and left over is nothing more than the naked, unmistakable taste of fructose (corn syrup sweetener). I had intended to mention the (pitifully artificial) taste of fruit (raspberry juice is added although it tastes a lot like fake strawberries, too) but this fructose is just too superabundant.

I'd consider it almost hypocritical for any self-respecting liquor store to sell this if they also make claims about "social responsibility" regarding the sale of alcohol to minors. Adult palates should have already outgrown this. It is supernaturally, redundantly, over-gratifyingly sweet. The taste of fruit is unmistakably synthetic. It's doubtful a drink like this would appeal to anyone other than children!

The brewery uses aspartame, which is an artificial sweetener that is something like 200 times sweeter than sugar. The motivation for its use is that, because of its supernatural sweetness, only small amounts are needed and thus its caloric contribution is basically negligible. Its use is logical if your aim is to promote a sweet tasting beer to a weight conscious demographic that is likely to avoid sugar for its excess calories...

I may fear the dreaded beer-belly but I think it would be more mindful of my health to avoid aspartame than the minimal extra calories. Not that it matters. It's obvious this beer was not marketed to someone like me. For one, it lists "beer" as the first ingredient. If "beer" is just one ingredient in a list of ingredients (rather than the only* ingredient) in your drink, then what you're drinking should not really be considered beer.

*Beer should generally have only four ingredients: water, malt, hops, yeast. I'm also excluding fruits and spices, which are often used by both innovative and reputable breweries.

250 ml bottle from LCBO, with Aspartame!

Pours a cloudy pinkish orange, pretty interesting colour, fizzy light pink head forms, quickly drops down to a thin layer, few lace spots stick to the glass, fruit juicy looking. Smell is very sweet, grapefruit juice, strawberries, very sugary, slightly musty, straw/barnyardy, wheat, oranges, very citrusy, funny smell I can't place, kind of acidic. Taste is similar, very very sweet and sugary, very fruity and citrusy, grapefruit and oranges, not much else, just incredibly juicy and sweet. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation, pretty tough on the palate. Not very drinkable, much too sweet and fake tasting.

2.45/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured like pink lemonade into a Warsteiner flute, two finger white head with plentiful small bubble champagne-like carbonation. A bit murkey with sediment on the bottom but it's hard to know if it's yeast or not as "beer" is listed as one of the ingedients as well as aspartame. The nose is weaker than the appearance with only a slight smell of the raspberry juice that is listed as another of the ingredients. Taste is very much like a flavoured berrie drink, sweet enough with a tart edge to it on the swallow but hardly a hint of bitterness or malt. Mouthfeel is effervescent and spritzy.

With air, the head shrank to a wispy cloud, a ring and some lace and the carbonation slowed. There was also a more pronounced aspartame taste as one finds in a diet soda and that was a bit of a turn-off. The question arises as to whether this is truly a beer or not? In my book, hardly. However, it might serve as a pleasant apertif in hot weather or as an amusemet in mixed company; likely to go over well with the generation of cooler-driven youth in these parts. I do credit the brewer with one thing: honesty ... the label is very upfront about the use of sugar and aspartame and boasts of a "fruity pink beer" - a statement that is at least two-thirds correct and much less offensive than many claims made by the macro breweries that push their products on the masses. Try it for the fun of it, and heck, it might even serve your purposes if you're planning a patio party during the warmer weather and you want to throw the folks the beer equivalent of a knuckleball.

Pours a whitish-red color with a thin-head and ample carbonation. Interesting package and looks more like a wine cooler.

Aroma is full of raspberries in the nose followed by a touch of wheat. Definitely smells the part.

Taste is a bit too sweet and tart for my liking. Lots of raspberry goodness though if you like that thing. Definitely puts the "fruit flavoring" in fruit beers.

Not much of the beer in this. Feels like a witbier underneath but hard to tell with the sweetness.

Too sweet to even be beer. Worth a shot though because if anyone dares to question your manhood (or womanhood) for drinking this, they're probably full of shit.

This is not a beer I'd pick up myself, but having fixed a CB radio (trucker hottie! OK, it's used in an RV...) the owner gave me some fine brews along with this one. It pours cloudy reddish pink in my kriek Belle-Vue bolleke, with a white head of a centimeter that slowly disappears. The smell is nicely raspberryish, which considering the amount of raspberry juice (10%) is hardly surprising. But then the taste! Overly, almost sickly sweet with a pronounced aspartame aftertaste. This is criminal! I'd never thought I'd give this low a rating for the taste. Even my own raspberry lemonade is less sweet than this. And doesn't have that bitter yucky artificial sweetener taste lingering in my mouth. I won't have this beer anymore, not even for a substantial bribe. Definitely not in the target audience...

With a trucker mud-flap hottie silhouetted on the 8.4 ounce can - Thanks kkipple for bringing this to a stout tasting.

Pours a merky dull yellow/orange that considerably looks more like apricot juice than beer. It is simply ugly. It smells more like juice than beer. First sip is very sweet (apricots and pears) but in a negative diet soda kind of way. This beer has aspartame...uck! More like a wine cooler...this is one strange brew

8.4 ounce can, energy drink-style can featuring the truck mudflap girl and packed with aspartame. Thanks (I think) to kkipple for this one.

Appearance: Pours a very cloudy, pinkish-peach body with a very thin white head.

Smell: Tart-scented, faux raspberry nose with some indistinct hints of wheat.

Taste: Sharp, tart raspberry flavoring and a touch of tangy wheat sweetened with a couple packets of Equal. Lovely. No real hop character or bitterness. Flavor of ground up Sweet Tarts candy on the finish. Bleh!

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-high carbonation.

Drinkability: Not recommended. The production of this beer was a very bad decision.

From notes 2-11-09

Eye: Well I see where the "wit" classification comes from. It looks just like a wit but with a pink hue. The lame looking can states "The Fruity Pink." The packaging for this beer is really lame. I am never embarassed to by a fruit beer, yet when it comes in a tiny pink can with a flourescent greenish/yellow sillhouete of a chick, hair blowing in the wind whilst blowing a kiss to some unseen person, I am embarassed. It makes me feel girly. It makes me feel like I've bought something girlier than smirnoff ice strawberry-acai. I can see why this product failed here, the packaging is absoutely terrible. Whatever genius though this up is probably out of a job. Head is pretty weak, there should be something more from a wit, just a thin blanket covering the beer.

Nose: Tart raspberries make their way to the foreground in this one. Thats pretty much it. I don't get anything "wit" from this...Am I supposed to? It says "wit bier met frambozen"...white beer with raspberries....To be sure though I guess any other subtle flavor would be hidden by the intense raspberry character. It basically smells like a wheat beer with fruit added, however, there is tartness in here that most fruit beers don't have, lambics excluded.

Tongue: Well what do you expect? Raspberry is right upfront with that light tartness that gives this one some refreshing qualities. This is the kind of beer that you can drink after a heavy night of binge drinking and feel like you're not actually drinking beer. Really not much more to it than that. I will say this for this beer, at least it has enough testicular fortitude to use real fruit in the beer and not some shitty extract. That being said, this is one of the better raspberry fruit beers I've drank. I think that this one would be more interesting if the wit character and raspberry character were more balanced. As of now its just raspberry with something to support it, well not even that...its raspberry with well, how shall we say....raspberry needs a means to be put in said drink....okay how about a wit beer to convey the raspberry? There's no trace of the wit aside from the clarity and obvious appearance of the brew's body.

Feel and Drinkability: Light bodied and spritzy as expected. Still as with the flavor, its feel is better than a good majority of American Micro Raspberry ales or wheats. This is one that I can see being extremely refreshing in the hot summer months. I'm glad to have tried this, but if you're not a fan of fruit beers than this isn't for you. This caught my eye because I like Wittekerke and believed that a raspberry wit would be interesting. Well, not enough wit and too much raspberry, but not bad, just not as interesting as I had hoped for. Still this one is very easy to drink and it makes for a good beer when you're in the mood for something light, tart and less beerish.

Comes in two-tone pink can with lime-green female silhouette. Totally euro-disco looking. Poured into 12oz glass. Poured a cloudy orange-amber color with a white head of big, loose bubbles. Head dissipated very quickly, with no lacing. A very sweet, candyish aroma. Tastes more like a berry flavored 7-UP than a beer. Soda-pop body and drinkability. I would maybe drink this on a hot day out by the river, but would rather have a better Wit. Try it once just to add it to your list, but don't search it out.

Had this on tap at the Lucky Baldwins 10th Annual Belgian fest on 2/15/09.

Pours a hazy orange color with some pink(just a little). Looks like a wit mixed with a kriek. Good lacing and retention.

The aroma is overpowered by the sweet cherry with a little maltiness poking through. Nothing else.

Flavor is of red koolaid and sweet cherries. Some tartness is present but no bitterness. Too much, over the top.

Body is of medium thickness. Enjoyable but tastes too much like candy. Would make for a great beer for people who like mixed drinks.
