COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Louis Premium Framboise is a slightly sweet beer, perfectly balanced with the sourness of the mother beer, Lambic. 25% Willamette raspberries with seeds and natural sugars. A delicious thirst-quencher with low alcohol content, pleasing to young and old.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, unmalted wheat, rasberry juice (25%), elderberry juice, sugar, hops, flavors, sweeteners (steviol glycosides from stevia), antioxidant (ascorbic acid).

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2014
Very artificial framboise based on Van Honsebrouck’s Western Flemish lambic, sugared and sweetened, purple red, grenadine, elderberry syrup, that horrible lemonade-like ascorbic acid again and cloyingly sweet finish with just a bit of tartness, but not enough to balance out the syrupy sweetness. These fruit beers surely have an audience, but I never belonged to it.

Très fruitée, pe un peux trop, rafraîchissante, mais pas super dur pour une lambic

Lemke10 (848) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Pours a deep red color with a slight pink head. The aroma is full of sweet raspberry. The flavor is sweet and slightly tart. A very well made lambic.

martinrumsam (557) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle. Intense mid red with pink foamy head. All raspberry aroma with a vinegary whiff. Massive sweet raspberry taste with classic lambic sourness kicking in. Lots of bubbles. No thanks.

Een lekker biertje met een verfrissende smaak, ideaal voor op warme zomerdagen te drinken.

Kauge (445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Nõmme Comarket (€ 3,29), July 2014. Pours a very deep, almost brownish red with a pinkish white head that retains nicely, leaving some lacing. Nose is good home-made raspberry jam and not much else. Taste is very, and I mean very sweet with strong sourness to follow. Medium body and carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel. Tart, sugary finish. Must have a huge sweet tooth to enjoy this. Reminds me of all the flavoured syrupy ciders and lemonades that I hate.

Petkus331 (297) - Redford, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2014
A strong aroma of sweet and sour raspberries. Appears ruby red with pink foam a waves of lace. Tastes sweet and sour, like ripe raspberries and slightly bitter seeds. Palate is a bit oily. Overall, very enjoyable.

firstsip (540) - Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Tap. Dark pomegranate red. Belgian lace. Very tart nose--makes you pull back a bit. Decent mouthfeel. Tart raspberry without being super tart or sour.

Scopey (7884) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Another "Lambic treat" from Beers of Europe.... From bottle. It pours deep red/ruby with a small light pink head. The nose is sweet pungent raspberry, cream soda and plenty of artificial/candy sort of malarkey. The taste is pretty daymn sweet, tangy-sweet raspberry, candy, fruit syrup and boiled sweets etc with a sweet finish. Light+ body, average carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. A bit of tang makes it sort of bearable. Betetr than the "premium" peche sort of...

biggsbowler (421) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Draft - Pours dark red, almost like cranberry juice. The aroma has a very strong smell raspberries and sweetness. The taste is very sweet. It’s pretty close to raspberry juice with cranberries and blackberries. If you don’t like beer but like raspberry juice, this is your drink, not mine.
