Absolutly delicious. Poures a brilliant deep red with a pink head that diminishes quickly but leaves a ring around the edges throughout. The aroma was strong and sweet with plenty of raspberries and a sharp tartness on the nose as well. The flavor is sweet raspberries again. Has a nice tart finish. This goes great with dessert, especially a slice of cheesecake.

One of my favorite beers. It is absolutely fantastic. It has a fruity type of sexual passion mixed with a tall skiny red head dressed as a raspberry. This is absolute sensual deligt of every variety. It heightens the pallet the nose and the mood. Definately one of the best pick me up beers, if you are in the mood for something a little sunsually fuity.

Valentines Day 2006. Pours with a nice big head like champagne. Has a good tartness to it, but not a whole lot for the palate to chew on. Goes down like juice and I could probably drink the whole bottle and not feel it.

The bottle poured a hazy, dark red beverage with a very small fizzy pink head that was fully diminishing and left no lacing on the glass. The aroma was of, what else, raspberries ... not much else to report here. The body was light to medium with lively carbonation and a thin syrupy texture. The flavor started off moderately sweet and at the same time, quite tart. The finish was average in length and lightly tart as well.

375ml bottle.
Pours an intense apaque ruby red with fairly thick bubbly, fizzy, almost artificial looking pink head. Aroma is one-dimensional of tart raspberries, though a faint whiff of hops somehow manages to show through. Flavor is a massive burst of tart raspberries, tart lambic, and excessive syrupy sweetness. Im not at all a fan of sour lambics, preferring some mitigating sweetness. And yet even for me the sweetness in this stuff is ovebearing. Its almost like a soda. Palate is very lively, tingly & active. Its beer credentials are questionable (hence the less than enthusiastic score here) but judged simply as an alcoholic beverage it is very drinkable, pleasing and refreshing. This and the Kriek were offered as substiutes for champaign at my wedding reception, to the delight of many guests.

on tap-pours a creamy light red head. Color is clear red. Aroma is strong raspberry. Taste follows, malt. This doesnt come across as a beer to me, but my wife enjoyed it.

Lindermans Framboise is a lambic beer by style. True lambic beers come from only one place, the Senne Valley, an area just west of Brussels, in Belgium. Lambics are wheat beers that are spontaneously fermented, which means they are fermented by wild airborne yeasts that live in the atmosphere. Only a handful of Belgian brewers actually brew lambic, and pure, unblended lambic beer is a very sharp, acidic, sour beer. Lambics are aged in wooden barrels for up to two or three years. They are then blended and bottled. Some lambics are matured in the wood with the addition of fruits, the most common being cherry(kriek), raspberry(framboise), and peach(peche), though other fruits and berries can be used. Because of their sour, and tart nature, some of these fruit beers are sweetened as well. Lindermans Framboise is one such beer that is sweetened to cut though some of that sharp, sour edge making this beer more appealing to a broader variety of beer drinkers. In fact this beer style is a favorite among people who really dont like beer. And that is the great thing about the variety of beer styles that are out there. You might not like them all, but there is a beer out there that non beer drinkers will enjoy. I prefer the more acidic, sour, sharp traditional lambics, but Lindermans Framboise is always a very tasty beer, and one I enjoy. Lindermans Framboise pours to a beautiful ruby red color with a pink head and a lively carbonation. The nose is just packed with fresh, vibrant, raspberry aromas. The palate is tart, and sweet, with more raspberry flavor on the tongue, and a refreshing tartness. This beer finishes with more fresh raspberry flavors, with a slight sour edge. Raspberry really dominates this beer, but with the sweet and sour edge it really is a pleasing beer. This beer screams desert. I would match this with a raspberry tart and clotted cream. This would also work well with roasted pork, and as an ingredient in a vinegarette.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2006 Draft: Awesome looking beer, great raspberry color, killer pink looking head. Damn this was sour, like a grape wine but damn this was sweet. Huge raspberry sour flavor, this hit me in a good way.
