COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Framboise is a classic among the Belgian beers created by adding whole fresh raspberries (250 g/l)to a blend of young and old lambic. Framboise Oud Beersel is the missing link between beer and wine and is served chilled in flute glasses.

ineedbeer (1164) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Poured from a 375 ml bottle with a best by of 2018. Aroma is raspberry forward with a nice jammy chaarcrer and a light seed note. Light acidity with hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Faint funk. Pours a hazy, purple red with a small, thin, light pink head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where it lingers. No lacing and faint legs. Flavor is moderately sweet with a lot of jammy raspberry character. Some light acidity and hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Low bitterness and a hint of seed character. Light mineral note. Faint funk. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied and a bit watery in the finish with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright framboise but it falls a bit flat in the finish. Good raspberry notes but it lacks the acidity and funk.

Moravius (810) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2015 Flasche (375 cl), MHD 08/2015, mithin vor 4 Jahren abgefüllt. - Dunkles Braunrot, trüb mit unschönen Hefebröckchen, schaumlos. - Duftet appetitlich aber etwas dünn nach Himbeeren oder eher Himbeerlimonade. - Antrunk dünn himbeerfruchtig aber extrem trocken, adstringierend und holzig herb. Deutliche aber doch verhaltene Säure. Schwach rezent, trocken, hart im Mund. Im Abgang eigenartig dünne holzige Herbe. - Limonadenähnlich dünne, aromatisch eindimensionale, platt herbe Brühe. „The missing link between beer and wine?“ Darauf kann ich verzichten - ebenso wie auf Fruktose und E 950, die in der Zutatenliste auftauchen. Gar kein Vergleich mit einem guten Oud Bruin.

martjoobolut (1470) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2015 0,375L bottle (from beerExpress, Tallinn). Pours red with pink head. The head stays. Aroma is intense raspberries, sweetness, a touch of biscuits. Flavor is sweet and sour, fresh raspberries, acidic, citric, some biscuits, and watery notes. Finish is sour raspberries. Overall: it’s not very lambic like (doesn’t have the usual lambic aroma and flavor), more like great fruit juice. But if you like raspberries, you’ll love this one.

Douberd (3135) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2015
(Oud Beersel Framboise) Bottle 375 ml at home, corked and caged. Served into a tulip, ABV 5%’ Dark red ruby colour on the body, clear. Almost two fingers of a pink, frothy head, with low retention, leaving eventually a thin film of foam on top of the beer. Sweet aroma of raspberries, marmalade, syrup. Moderate sweet taste, raspberries mostly of course, marmalade. Thin body, almost watery, low carbonation. Not bad, drinks pleasantly.

minutemat (2415) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
375ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours deep, hazy red with minimal pink head. Lovely sugary raspberry aroma. Taste doesn’t quite match with faded raspberries and a subtle sourness.

VastActiv (3868) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Tap at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Colour is deep red with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Berries, raspberries and sweetness. Very juicy, in fact too juicy for me.

ninecats (320) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2015
Sample at En Öl- & Whiskymässa, Gothenburg, April, 2015. Deep hazy red, small pink head. Bose is massive raspberries, both fresh and old, hints if funk, vanilla and oak. Taste is fairly sweet with sour notes, again lots of raspberries, lightly woodiness, semi sweet/sour/dry finish. Light body, close to zero carbo. Very drinkable, uncomplicated.

SlackerMads (2062) - DENMARK - APR 6, 2015
Bottle. Clear deep red with a medium sized pink head. Nose is pure raspberry. Flavour also has raspberry and little else. Seems a bit simple, perhaps some almond in there too and a hint of funk if I look for it, but otherwise raspberry. Light body, hardly any sourness, mild sweet. Feels somewhat thin and fizzy. Mild sweet finish.

Maakun (1490) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2015
UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 Bottle at home. Reddish brown with short lasting greyish head. Leaves, rotten fruit, funk, cheese, more rotten and mold, moldy bread. Very thin light sour taste. Thin bodied with low carbonation. Wow, this is not good at all. Something must have gone very wrong here, can’t believe its supposed to be this way. Will update when I have it again. &&&&&&&&& update. Another bottle from the same batch. Moldy again. Not as horrible as the other bottle as here there is actually some raspberry taste now, but still very bad.
