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.

Had at Loganís Oceanside beer tasting with AlohaC, and Hair, and Matt, and Ken, Jeff, Colleen, Bill, and others. Wow, great barnyard and raspberry aroma. Sweet excellent. One of my favorites of the night. I feel guily rating gems like this, because my rating is always way different than otherís ratings. Funky lambics rule!

On tap at the Brick Store Pub. It had about a half inch head when it got to me and that didnít last long. It was a deep amber/ruby color. The aroma was overwhelmingly raspberry. And it was very nice! The up front taste is the same as the smell and then this fades slowly as you swallow into that lambic taste on the end. Makes you want more. And Iím going back this Saturday to get some.

Excelleny Framoise, sour notes of fruit and rotting wood. Like a forest floor dampened by unicorn tears...

crossovert (7389) - Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2012 12.7 oz green bottle. "Best before" 06.03.2012. Pours a murky brown-fuschia with an odd colored pink/brown head. Not exactly a looker. Smell is amazing though, just a nasal pounding of fresh raspberry, seeds and all. It is amazing. Taste follows with an awesome kick of raspberry paired with some typical sour gueuze funk and a nice oak overtone. It isnít very sour, mostly tart raspberry. The malts are under toned with the yeast and raspberry bursting on the tongue. The mouthfeel has a good carbonation and finishes nicely dry. The drinkability is of godlike proportions. Framboise is one of my favorite styles, as is traditional gueuze. This brings a bit of both very nicely in a highly drinkable brew. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-11-2010 02:06:28 also had it on tap, a great beer on tap as well.

375ml corked bottle. This is one complex Framboise. Murky brownish-red color. Sweet with an almost raspberry puree finish to it. Some wheaty farmhouse stuff going on way in the background. The alcohol helps round out the beer as well. Sour and rich. Awesome beer.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep pink color lambic with a medium light pink head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma consists of fresh raspberries with lightly sweet undertone. Taste is very refreshing with taste of fresh raspberries with light tart notes. Lambic is not present but not overly dominant as presence of raspberries is huge. Body is about average with good carbonation. Very nice drink with huge refreshing notes.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 My expectations were high for this caged corked bottled beer and they were met. Nice pinkish pour. Tart fruity mouth watering aroma. Taste is not totally free and clear of beer bitterness but i must say, it is almost there. A great tart fruity flavor that sizzles across yer tongue. Not a single hint of cloying yet it is simultaneously sweet and tart. Yes, a very lovely example of what beer should be, except perhaps those hints of raspberries but Iím fine wit dat. Each swig is a happy melody of easy to take friendliness. Even tho I donít detect hops in this stuff it is so nice. Even at the end, the couple of drops out of the bottle onto my tongue is so so yummy. Yes, I need more of this beldjiee beer, big enjoyable beer drinken experience. This stuff is soooooo gooooood! Simply refreshing!

The beer eructs for the 375ml green bottle into my snifter glass a limpid deep red with a decorous creamy light pinkish head that after its dematerialization leaves a fragile sheet of lace to enshroud the glass. Nose has a delicate sweet aroma of raspberries, with a nice tart background, a real foreshadowing of things to come; start is sweet, with a pleasant feel to the palate. Finish is sturdy in its acidity, the raspberries quite evident, and the aftertaste a tart dry that makes you pucker a bit, but what a treat, and to think at one time I disliked Lambicís.
