Are these two sentences correct?

It won't be tasty.

It will be not tasty.

I'd like to ask if both the sentences above are correct and mean the same thing.

Any explanation will be appreciated. Thank you. :)

    grammatically speaking, the "not" ought to follow the "helping verb", as in "It will not be tasty", but there are uses where there is a cause to declare a thing "being Not tasty" rather than "not being tasty".

    Because "won't" is simply a contraction "will not", if the sentences mean the same thing, they would be: "It won't be tasty."/"It will not be tasty."

    (The word "be" has to be after "will not", as a verb.)

    Given the difference between would not (won't) and will not, both are correct and, essentially, have identical meaning.

    The second sentence needs correction as "It will not be tasty".

    Only the first sentence is correct.  "won't" is the contraction of "will not".

    The word "not" turns the verb "be" into a negative. "It will not be" as opposed to "It will be".

    No, they are not both correct. The second should be

    "It will not be tasty." 

    Then the only difference is that 'will not' is a bit more formal than the abbreviated form 'won't'.
