As soon as I started pouring I was struck by the raspberry jam aroma. It clued me in that this one wouldnít be the sour lambic that I wanted but I canít deny the appeal of such an aroma. The appearance was grand. All dark and stuff with one of those huge heads that makes a column in the middle and then collapses on himself. Alas, this is just a decently made but overly sweet raspberry soda lambic. I sort of like them but I donít really find them satisfying. I canít deny that thereís some good craftsmanship behind these things but whatever itís boring.

Cunningham (6762) - 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 (987) - 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 (1016) - 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.

zacgillbanks (4233) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
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.

cmacklin (764) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark red with lots of floaties and a small, short lived, off-white, fizzy head that leaves spotty lacing. Sour, fruity aroma of raspberry and cherry. Sweet, fruity flavour of raspberry and wheat with a dry, tart, acidic finish. Light body with a watery texture and lively carbonation.

Bottle from SlovakSniper; thanks. Raspberry juice aroma. Taste is full of raspberry, with bready malts. Good.

imdownthepub (12917) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Bottled, 330ml at Lafayette Music Bar, Ostend, West Flanders, Belgium. Ruby red with pink head. I cannot believe that I hadnít 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 (256) - 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.
