Default Muntons wheat beer with raspberry vs milestone raspberry

Has anyone tried the muntons wheat beer? Is it better than the brewferm wheaties or worse. For the same price as the tarwebier you get 30+ pints rather than the 24 from brewferm. Especially the raspberry. Which leads me to my next question.

If I wanted to add raspberries to the brew would I do this on the first fermentation? Also would frozen raspberries blended and sived to remove the seeds be ok?

One last one lol

What enhancer would you recommend. Would it be best to go for a straight enhancer or would you recommend using like a spray malt.

Edit

Just discovered that there is a milestone raspberry kit. Has anyone tried this?

muntons also manufacture the Brupaks kits, however.

What kit is the muntons, 1 can or 2? I don't remember seeing a wheat Muntons kit before, though i have probably only looked at the two can kits.

I did the brewferm when I started and was crap. I defrost the fruit and add it after 2 weeks. No need to sieve it.
