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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful refined looks and aroma, cherry all the way. Nice light malt body, barn, perhaps not so funky. In fact the yeast could be more expressive. Good beer, classic and appealing. (375ml bottle from Dranken Pauwels I think)

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
First up is the Oud Beersel Framboise which pours a dark blood red with a fuzzy pink foam that fizzled out fast.
It’s got a big bright aroma like a basket of fresh ripe raspberries and a pleasing tartness.
Raspy carbonation on a medium-light body. Whew is this tart! Oaky, tart raspberries including the seeds, extremely fruity but finishes dry. It’s like a flavor explosion that quickly disappears but primes you to want another sip. Damn fine stuff though pretty straight-forward as far as lambics go.

Bottle, tasted almost two years ago. Nice but not so complex lambic, very accessible for people that’s are new in lambics.

37,5cl bottle from Vinmonpolet Aker brygge, Oslo. Pours clear deep red with a fast dissipating pink head. Rather dominating aroma of raspberry sirup, nice acidity and high drinkability. Refreshing and quite tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottle is likely from around 2007 or older. Poured into a Leffe chalice pours amber with no head or lace. Aroma of sweet and tart raspberries. Low carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of sweet and tart raspberries, sweet cherries, slight oak, slight malts, liquid sweet tart. I should say I’ve been drinking this brew since I represented them in 2008 and they are generally lovely with or without food. I’m not sure over 5 years of age helps in any way, but it still has the flavor backbone, just less carbonatin and brightness. Overall a tasty framboise.
