Wittekerke Rosé

11.2 oz bottle from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
My bottle is the “Framboise” that I’m pretty sure is the US version of “Rose”.
To be honest, I’m NOT against this kind of beer as a matter of principle, but having tasted this beer it’s not something that I can take.
Peach colored pour with a nice head that produces some lace. Th beer actually looks OK, as long as you observe it for what it is and no more.
The nose is that bad either, with some artificial raspberry notes and some lightly acidic lemon. Things go awry when the tastes cut in. The nasty, fake sweetener taste that cuts across the whole drink is where the beer fails. It leaves that nasty, dry aftertaste. The fruit is there, and to be honest it’s not too sweet or actually unpleasant but it seems fake. A little more lemony acidity and we’re done here.
Not good, but to be honest I never thought it would be.
