Sometimes I find out all I need on a new beer release. Sometimes I don’t. This is one of those times. Wittekerke has a new release here in the United States. You know this brewer by other releases in it’s portfolio- the self titled Wittekerke, and Petrus Pale Ale. Wittekerke is a label from Belgian brewer Bavik.
This new release is called “Framboise”, also known under another alias “Rose.” Framboise translates to “raspberry” in English. As you might have figured, it’s a fruit beer with this commerical description –
“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.”
Taste Expectations: My favorite description – Raspberry Jello. Fruity and sweet. Lots of raspberry in this beer. Like sweet beers? This one is for you.
Availability: 11.2 oz bottle/6 pks. No current draft offerings.
