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.

Thanks to MrChopin for sharing this one! A- Body is a nearly transparent dark fuchsia color that pours with 1-2 finger fizzy light pink head. Pretty good retention but no lacing left behind in the glass. S-Nose is moderate in strength and offers both lactic sourness and sweet raspberry upfront. Upon further investigation some oak and a light presence of vinegar can also be detected. T-Mild to moderate amount of lip-puckering lactic sourness initially with some tart and sweet raspberry flavors coming through to balance initially. Deep in the background is a little bit of oak. The finish is somewhat dry but a hint of vinegar and sweet raspberry flavors linger for a little bit. P-medium to high amount of tingly carbonation-body is light to medium weight and smooth and creamy. O- This is a very good raspberry lambic. It has a somewhat soft character but offers some complexity with oak, raspberries and two different kinds of "sour". Well done overall-would not mind having it again.

Corked/caged bottle from Longhorn, Estes Park, CO.
Pours a lush, deep raspberry crayon with an aroma of sugar-spiked raspberries floating in sweet vinegar. Flavor is tart, rotten raspberries in rotten cherries. Slick mouthfeel. Bask in the putridity; this stuff is rotten divine.

37.5cl corked green bottle (expiry 8/2013) into a flute glass. Pours clear dark amber-red with dense pillowy pink head of excellent duration and lacing. Aroma and taste is satisfyingly lambic with tart lemony citric elements before the raspberry sweetness takes over at the end. The palate is spritely and light with a light-medium body. A great example of the style though I guess some may fancy more lambic sourness.

Churchkey had it, and it was good. Poured a clear ruby color with a small pink head - gone quickly. Aroma was very raspberry, a touch of funk in there that I don’t normally get from framboise lambics. Flavor was a fantastic mix of competing flavors, fresh fruit notes, aged lambic gueuze characteristics. Woah.

No head; deep ruby-cyclamen beer, lively carbonated. Roasted cherries, or heated cherry, mulled wine. Very fruity, sweetish-sourish, ripe raspberry flavour, and rasberry kernels. Only thing, finish is a tad watery. Well-carbonated, dry, fruity palate, light body. Excellent fruitlambic. Good work, Gert, an ideal one to wean the ignorant to the real thing.

Bottled beer. Strong raspberry flavour. Great sharpness and non of the artificial sweetness that comes with the more commercial gueuzes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une robe rouge et trouble se présente devant nos yeux, c’est visuellement très aguichant. La mousse est toutefois assez mince, mais laisse des traces suaves de dentelle derrière elle. Au nez, ça sent carrément la tarte aux framboises que mon grand-père faisait jadis. En bouche, les framboises explosent dans un chaos sucré et acide à la fois. Dangereuse et délicieuse.

This poured a pretty ruby body topped with a good head. The aroma is full of fresh raspberries and a funky sourness. After my experience with the gueuze and kriek, I was surprised by how much sweeter this was. Still pretty tasty.
