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.

Bottle. Reddish with a light pinkish head. Nose is full of sour cherries and raspberry-seedy jam. Some vanilla, and a touch of funk. Overall a very berry-fruity aroma, that leans heavily towards darkish jammyness. Body is medium-light, funk more clearly present than in the aroma. Some malts, sour cherry, raspberry seeds. An ok, not too heavy nor too easy, framboise. I’m just more for enjoying funkiness with plain malts than with a fruit injection.

Une autre bière de soif partagée avec Dimitri. La bière dans mon verre est brunâtre, avec des teintes orangées et rosées. Pas très attirante pour dire la vérité. Les nez est un amalgame de salade de fruits contenant outre la framboise, un noyau de prune et de la pomme. Les saveurs sont les mêmes que les arômes donc aucune surprise de ce côté. Ronde et palais râpeux sans toutefois goûter le sucre artificiel, cette bière est pétillante quoique peu rafraîchissante. Lourde en cette journée caniculaire.

thellgren (430) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2015
0.375 l bottle from Arkadia Alko in Helsinki. Colour is ruby with pink head. Taste is rather dry despite the raspberries which tend to make lambic sweet. Well, OK, this has also additional 50 g of Morello cherries. Taste is still mostly raspberries, all the 220 g of real berries. Nothing to do with wine, it is rather like raspberry cider. This should be drank during a hot summer day.

une belle bière fruitée sur des notes de framboise, sur un fond de fraîcheur et d’équilibre. Une bière de plaisir.

Tap @ Kælderkold, Barcelona, 22/06/15, thanks Jazzman. Pours dark red with a medium, pink head. Aroma is light, some sour vinegar, light raspberry. The taste is rather light as well. Somewhat sour with light raspberry and vinegar. Disappointing.

King_Alex_II (525) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Perfect clear dark Ruby color with white foam with hints of red. The smell is very berry intense. The taste is very fruity, not really sour and a bit fruity tartness and the thin body of the beer keeps it from performing better. The aftertaste is calm and fruity. The whole beer is very focused on the raspberry, but it lacks a sour or sweet part to go along with. Still very pleasant beer.

Not bitter as it has no hops. Not sour like a lambic either. The raspberry taste is not particularly strong as with some other raspberry lambics that I have tried. Overall very good although I would have preferred a more sour taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheCametron (2086) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle at The 24th Weekend Of Spontaneous Fermentation. I like a cheeky wee Framboise. Pours Ruby with a short White head. Nice fizzy texture. Gentle sweet raspberry. Light tartness and light sourness. A nice way to break up the Geuze party.

ineedbeer (1163) - 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.
