Bavik "Wittekerke Framboise"
Brouwerij Bavik - Harelbeke, Belgium
Witbier (ABV 4.3%)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a hazy medium peachy red with a huge (3-4 finger) light pink pillowy head that receded slowly down to a medium film and collar with some excellent sticky lacing.

The aroma was intense with the smell of raspberry and had a hint of grain malts, a sweaty yeast and a touch of wheat.

The taste had a sweet tart flavor to it and a big dose of raspberry throughout with a very sweet candi sugar finish. The flavor lasted an average duration with the intense sweetness fading away at a good steady pace.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.

Overall an excellent flavored Witbier that is more like drinking a wine cooler that a beer. But then again a wine cooler is a malt beverage...
