COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

As soon as I started pouring I was struck by the raspberry jam aroma. It clued me in that this one wouldn’t be the sour lambic that I wanted but I can’t 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 don’t really find them satisfying. I can’t deny that there’s some good craftsmanship behind these things but whatever it’s boring.

une belle bière fruitée sur des notes de framboise, sur un fond de fraîcheur et d’équilibre. Une bière de plaisir.

Erasmus_ro (1824) - Alabama, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Tap @ Kælderkold, Barcelona, 22/06/15, thanks Jazzman. Pours dark red with a medium, pink head. Aroma is light, some sour vinegar, light raspberry. The taste is rather light as well. Somewhat sour with light raspberry and vinegar. Disappointing.

King_Alex_II (522) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Perfect clear dark Ruby color with white foam with hints of red. The smell is very berry intense. The taste is very fruity, not really sour and a bit fruity tartness and the thin body of the beer keeps it from performing better. The aftertaste is calm and fruity. The whole beer is very focused on the raspberry, but it lacks a sour or sweet part to go along with. Still very pleasant beer.

Not bitter as it has no hops. Not sour like a lambic either. The raspberry taste is not particularly strong as with some other raspberry lambics that I have tried. Overall very good although I would have preferred a more sour taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheCametron (2086) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle at The 24th Weekend Of Spontaneous Fermentation. I like a cheeky wee Framboise. Pours Ruby with a short White head. Nice fizzy texture. Gentle sweet raspberry. Light tartness and light sourness. A nice way to break up the Geuze party.

ineedbeer (1162) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Poured from a 375 ml bottle with a best by of 2018. Aroma is raspberry forward with a nice jammy chaarcrer and a light seed note. Light acidity with hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Faint funk. Pours a hazy, purple red with a small, thin, light pink head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where it lingers. No lacing and faint legs. Flavor is moderately sweet with a lot of jammy raspberry character. Some light acidity and hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Low bitterness and a hint of seed character. Light mineral note. Faint funk. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied and a bit watery in the finish with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright framboise but it falls a bit flat in the finish. Good raspberry notes but it lacks the acidity and funk.

Moravius (807) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2015 Flasche (375 cl), MHD 08/2015, mithin vor 4 Jahren abgefüllt. - Dunkles Braunrot, trüb mit unschönen Hefebröckchen, schaumlos. - Duftet appetitlich aber etwas dünn nach Himbeeren oder eher Himbeerlimonade. - Antrunk dünn himbeerfruchtig aber extrem trocken, adstringierend und holzig herb. Deutliche aber doch verhaltene Säure. Schwach rezent, trocken, hart im Mund. Im Abgang eigenartig dünne holzige Herbe. - Limonadenähnlich dünne, aromatisch eindimensionale, platt herbe Brühe. „The missing link between beer and wine?“ Darauf kann ich verzichten - ebenso wie auf Fruktose und E 950, die in der Zutatenliste auftauchen. Gar kein Vergleich mit einem guten Oud Bruin.

martjoobolut (1464) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2015 0,375L bottle (from beerExpress, Tallinn). Pours red with pink head. The head stays. Aroma is intense raspberries, sweetness, a touch of biscuits. Flavor is sweet and sour, fresh raspberries, acidic, citric, some biscuits, and watery notes. Finish is sour raspberries. Overall: it’s not very lambic like (doesn’t have the usual lambic aroma and flavor), more like great fruit juice. But if you like raspberries, you’ll love this one.
