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.

Sampled at La Trappe. A nice brew that was a treat to share with others after we finished the food. A bit acidic tasting but overall a really refreshing drink.

I think it’s a 2013 bottle (expiration is 2018). The beer pours a magenta brown. Appears quite cloudy, which might be due to my handling of the bottle. Small, fizzy pinkish head, dissipates pretty quickly. The aroma is sweet with an artificial tone. It could be from the sweetening, but I’m getting something that smells a lot like a diacetyl-ish buttery popcorn flavor. There are some decent raspberries underneath all of that. The taste is flat and watery. It’s very washed out. Some nice fruitiness, but there’s zero funk or depth. Fairly sweet, which isn’t aided by the watery character. Mouthfeel is a bit spritzy but a lot flatter than expected. I’ve had this beer before and remember kinda liking it. The cork came out of this bottle with no pop, so maybe, it’s just an issue with this bottle. Still, this wasn’t good.

Pours dark brown/ruby with almost no head. Very faint aroma and taste of raspberries with some tartness. Very, very light body and almost nothing sour at all. Infected bottle?

Mortlach (1287) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 26, 2015
375ml bottle @Domus Birrae (Rome). Pours dark ruby with a medium head. Aroma of red fruits, bubblegum, raspberry syrup. Flavour is medium to high sweet for a framboise, light sour end. Light body, medium to light carbonation. Mediocre.

Colour is pink-red to light brown. Strong perfumed raspberry aroma. The raspberry flavour is presented well with just a light sweetness and a moderate sourness. Light and easy to drink.

Lubiere (11148) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
A reddish copper ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, beautiful sweet raspberry jam, with light candy sugar and vanilla, very nice. In mouth, a sweet fruity raspberry party, with candy sugar, nice sweet fruity notes, sweet yet pleasing and complex. Raspberry field in your mouth. On tap at St houblon.

Tap @ Oliver Twist Sto. Dark blood red with a brownish head. Would you believe the nose is mostly raspberry? Also fructose and hintsvof blackcurrant. Mouth follows suit. Sweet, but not too much, smooth with just a whiff of raspberry for an after taste.

Botlle. Pours a bit blurry red with a white head. Aroma is raspberry. Taste is raspberry, with light tartness. Could use more tart sour taste, quite watery.

Rating #1126 - 06.09.2014 - On tap at Sugar Bowl. Pours a bright pinkish-red with a bubbly white cap. Aroma is raspberry jam, sweetener. Palate is more raspberry - nice tartness - a well achieved fruit sour. Girlfriend approved.

Une autre bière de soif partagée avec Dimitri. La bière dans mon verre est brunâtre, avec des teintes orangées et rosées. Pas très attirante pour dire la vérité. Les nez est un amalgame de salade de fruits contenant outre la framboise, un noyau de prune et de la pomme. Les saveurs sont les mêmes que les arômes donc aucune surprise de ce côté. Ronde et palais râpeux sans toutefois goûter le sucre artificiel, cette bière est pétillante quoique peu rafraîchissante. Lourde en cette journée caniculaire.
