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.

_angst_ (4464) - Göteborg, - FEB 4, 2013
375 ml bottle. Can’t remember where I bought it. Pours hazy brownish pinkish red with a frothy and fizzy pinkish white head that is rather quick to dissipate while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is sour, fruity tart, tiny sweet and acetic with raspberries, crackers, hay, horse-blanket, leather, lemon juice, raspberry vinegar, red currants and unripe green berries. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly sour, tar and fruity with raspberries, hay, lemon juice, crackers, lemon zest, raspberry vinegar, dry soil, wood, horse-blanket, barnyard and leather. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, fruity tart, tiny mouth-puckering and light bodied. Finish is tart with raspberries, lemon juice, hay, crackers, lemon zest and horse-blanket.

MPA (942) - Amager (form. Nřrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 19, 2016
Draught @ Koelschip. Amber with a red glow and a pink, dense head. Solid aroma of raspberries and cellar. Flavour is raspberry sweet with only a little tartness. Lovely stuff and easy to forget it’s actually beer.

Marko (4852) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 19, 2016
Bottled in late 2012. Funny they don’t mention more that they also ad 50g/l of cherries. Enormous thanks heavy, shared with him & some others. Clear red-amber body with a tiny white head which vanished immediately. Enormous raspberry, fresh aroma, jammy notes. Mild, light raspberry taste, some dried fruit, low tartness, a touch of tea. Quite interesting and more "pedestrian" than expected, but still a very good beer.

Cunningham (6888) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2016
Hazed amberish color with a small head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an unsual soft carbonation. A bit higher carbonation would have done this beer well. Pleasant mild acidity and a mellow sweetness. Lots of raspberries in this one. Decent summer beer. Maybee a bit one dimensional.
[Bottle at Tranen in Oslo, Norway]

espenra (988) - Kurland, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2016
37.5cl bottle. Best before 2019-07-05. Batch L51871. It poured a dark ruby red colour with a minimal white head. Aroma is lots of raspberries with some cherries and vinous hints. Flavour is bittersweet. Lots of raspberries again but also some fake chemical notes. A decent beer in the summer heat.

anstei (1051) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle. Lots of raspberry indeed, a bit like a syrup. Lightly sour, tart, but also quite soft, smooth round. Dry but fruity, gentle palate, simple, high drinkability, but not particularly complex.

Corked bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Bright red with a thin pink-white head. It has a sweet raspberry flavour with malty, earthy and musty notes followed by more tart raspberry, cherry and yoghurt notes on the smooth, fruity finish. Good.
