250 ml nip bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 4.3%. Cloudy pink colour, big off-white / pale pink head. Strong aroma of raspberry juice and raspberry jam. The flavour is sweet but still refreshing, with plenty of raspberry juice and just a hint of hops. I think they could with advantage have skipped the aspartame and artificial aromatics, though.

Color: pink. Head white with a pink tinge, fluffy on the surface of beer forms a layer 2 cm.
Aroma: Raspberries, referred to as sweet raspberries and raspberry gently yet.
Taste: Like the aroma of raspberries and nothing else but that does not mean that it is wrong. The beer tastes like raspberry drink perfect, neither too sweet nor too sour, perfect.
Saturation medium, very fit.

Pink brew, smells of flowers and raspberries. The taste is a bit too sweet for me, and is dominated by raspberries, but it's actually not as bad as I expected. If it's served at a low temperature, to subdue the sweetness, it's actually enjoyable. Then again, I do have a soft spot for raspberry-infused (or influenced) beers.

Nice ending to a hot summer day, light and refreshing. Aroma of fruit punch, pours hazy golden with a tinge of red, nice full creamy head. Taste is more fruit punch, with a lingering, sticky sweet finish.

This beer came in the most adorable little can. It poured a cloudy pink-tinged copper with a small head that didn't last long. The smell is raspberry, but not super artificial raspberry. That's about it, nothing that would indicate it's a beer. The taste is very sweet. It's like a raspberry soda. Only thing slightly beery about it is perhaps a tiny hint of hops on the back end. The mouthfeel is slightly thick with a moderate amount of carbonation. I'm kind of digging it, but it's not really what I expect out of a beer. If the idea of a raspberry-flavored malt beverage turns your crank, you might want look into it.

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.

Bottle served into a La Chouffe tulip. Reviewed from notes taken July 2012. 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.

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.
