I sampled a 355 ml (12 oz.) bottle, which filled the quirky fluted Lindemans glass that I purchased with the beer about two times. The bottle produced a glass of beautiful copper colored liquid and a surprisingly large, but quickly falling off-white head with an unmistakable pink hue. Holding the glass to the light, the beer is crystal clear, and reveals much more of its raspberry content. Of course, there’s no missing its advertised raspberry character right up front. The aroma and taste of this lambic are emphatically “framboise.” This was a bit off-putting on first impression. In fact, before reaching room temperature, this beverage more-or-less resembled a liquid version of a sour raspberry Jolly Rancher. But, with the benefit of a few minutes outside the chilled bottle, the unique flavors produced by the wild yeasts used to ferment this beer really step forward to reveal a curious mix of flavors. There is the raspberry-jam-like backbone, but the sour earthy flavors produced by the yeast balance out any treacly sweetness, while the sugars mellow the sour and wild yeast flavors, particularly those produced by the Brettanomyces strain. In the end, I also picked up some flavors of dark cherry, raisin and oak, but there is very little to remind the drinker that this is beer. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it. There is a pleasing long dry finish on this lambic, and the clear flavor shift that develops once the beer comes to room temperature make it worth trying again.

Dit frambozenbier heeft een dieprode kleur, duidelijk die van frambozen (geen kleurstof). De smaak verhoudt zich tussen zoet en zuur (lambiek). Weinig hop (bitter) aanwezig, maar dat is ook niet vereist. In de smaak is een een munttoon te herkennen.

Overall one of the best beers I have ever tasted. It gives you a refreshing feeling after every mouthful, and at the end of the day, the taste just lingers with you. Now available in UK

En bouteille. Couleur rose foncé presque mauve avec épaisse tête rose bébé. Arômes de tarte aux framboises. Saveurs très fraîches, framboises cuites, pommes vertes et de canneberges. Le sucre permet de limité l’impact de l’acidité, effervescence élevé, belle rondeur en bouche. Ça se boit en quelques gorgées, délicieuse bière dessert à boire avec modération.
