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.

UXO (809) - CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
Pours cloudy red with one finger of loose light pink head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (4/5) Nose is strong raspberries, sour cherries, mild funk. (8/10) Taste is very low sweet, mild bitter, moderate sour. (9/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, dry tart finish. (4/5) That’s a heckuva nice fruit lambic. It initially smells like raspberry jam and the expectation is that it’ll be sweet - but it’s not, at all. Excellent fruit flavour and very mild sweetness gradually gives way to a traditional tart lambic character. Better than the framboises by Lindemans or Mort Subite, and comparable to the Boon - though definitely a bit short of the high water mark set by Cantillon. (17/20)

kwik-lime (1489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Pours deep pink-red with a pink head. Acidic, champagne-like taste at first then gives way to a sweet raspberry body and finally a slightly sour finish. Complex and enjoyable beer.

375ml bottle from Beers of Europe, shared with the Mrs. because I’m romantic like that. Pours brown with a thin pink head. Aromas of raspberry jam, quite sweet smelling. Taste is sweet too, lots more raspberry.

bob_w (373) - new york, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Assertive, fresh raspberry aroma. Hints at sweetness. But in the flavor, no real sweetness, thankfully. Rich, fresh, tart, dry raspberry fruit flavor. Appropriately thin body. Refreshing and delicious. Clean finish.

Holmen1 (3539) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2015
Mandag i annen ruler! Hvor ellers får man så mange gode øl i passelige doseringer på en kveld? Etter humle- og maltopplevelser står nå lambicen klar til en nødvendig service av gane og svelg.Lys rubinrød, kort filmskum. "Åh, dette lukte og smage snob" sies det, og det er lett å si seg enig. Frisk, lett syrlig og med en mild men samtidig pregnant bringebæraroma og -smak. Frisk sødme med en anelse av bitterheten man får fra kirsebærsteiner.

gunnar (6413) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2015
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear dark red with a small pink head. Aroma of fresh raspberries. Taste is fresh, crisp raspberries, complex and moreish, on the sweeter side, but still a very good one.
