_angst_ (4335) - 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.

Bottled, 330ml at Lafayette Music Bar, Ostend, West Flanders, Belgium. Ruby red with pink head. I cannot believe that I hadn’t rated this before, there is a real, fresh raspberry flavour to this, juicy with a tart, slightly acidic background. There is a balancing sweetness too. Pretty decent for the style.

kepano (253) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Clear ruby red with a foamy off white head. As someone who grow up picking raspberries the smell is instant nostalgia. Potent raspberry, lots of brown sugar, brown butter. It smells like a baked raspberry tart. On the palate, the body feels thinner than I expected but has fresh, fruity, raspberry finish. Oud Beersel Framboise lacks the complexity and sourness that I look for in a lambic. Not my favorite raspberry lambic, but enjoyable nonetheless.

rdb84 (499) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2016
Beautiful dark red color with light red hue, small head, gentle carbo. A: light sour, big raspberry sweetness, white sugar. Reminds of soft drink. T: very nice medium sharp sourness. Geuze maltiness dominates, with a perfect fruity undertone of red fruits, mostly raspberry, strawberry. With the glass half empty, the aroma becomes more like a true Geuze instead of soft drink earlier. Finish is quite dry with a mellow malt y bitterness, strawberry notes.

Bontus (741) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2016
37,5cl bottle from Geers. Pours dark red, ruby. Nearly no head. Nose of raspberries, cherries, port wine maybe. Fruity flavour, but a bit thin-bodied, could use some extra tartness/vinousness. But very palatable balanced fruit lambic.

Full of raspberry. It is very sweet with a slight sour tone. The mouthfeel and carbonation is very pleasant. The taste is quite simple. Not my favourite, but a lot of friends love it.
