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_ (2564) - 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.

tricksta_p (880) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2014
Fruity aroma of light sourish raspberries, very light barnyard. Flavour is moderate sour and light sweet. This would have been even better with a little more tartness.

McWorta (544) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 2, 2014
Clear and solid red colour with some orangey reflexions offering a fast fading pink head with CO2 - champagne like. On the nose the aroma of raspberry is the predominant ingredient but also offers hints of vanilla, wood and wet earthy notes. Offers a brisk fizz which develops the sweet fruity flavours and the light acidity of the fruit. All harmonically balanced. The finish light dry fruity and lasting mediumly.

Embrouille (2819) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottled 375ml. Remarkably faint sourness. Earthy moldy components throughout. Light bodied. Sweetish. Flat palate. Unsignificant quick finish which is reminiscent of dandelion. Dissapointing to my tastes.

PriorL (1642) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2014
From TAP at Waterhuis aan de bierkant Gent. APPEARANCE: clear red beer, small stable reddish head. NOSE: raspberries, little sour, fresh. TASTE: sour, though little sweet as well, watery, raspberries, rather fruity, but not really a good sourness. Has this been on tap for too long maybe?

yngwie (13120) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle, 375ml, at Den Gode Nabo. An unclear ruby red beer with a small white head. The aroma is as expected dominated by raspberry, with some almond and a lemony, light funky touch. It’s quite dry on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Raspberry, some almond notes and a touch of lemon juice in the flavor. Lasting raspberry finish. Not the most exciting framboise I’ve had, but it’s damn refreshing and quenching. 140620

reebtogi (4042) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
1L growler from Sherbrooke Liquor pours a crimson color with a finger and a half of light pink head that leaves a few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is dominated by raspberries. Taste is a raspberry tartness with a malty sweetness and a light hop bitterness in the background. A nicely crafted fruit lambic.

jdavidh (144) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Nice aroma, a bit of yeastiness, almost a champagne bite. Taste is ok but a bit sweet for me. Not bad but not my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
