37.5 cl bottle. 15 Jul 2016. Deep burgundy colour with a frothy, pale pink head, which settled to a ring and left some excellent lacing. Aroma of raspberries, vanilla and some toffee. Medium sweetness and tartness do battle over your taste buds. Medium bodied, smooth texture with some fizz and a dry finish. One for people who need more fruit in their diet.

This lambic gets a really bad rap from beer geeks, and I don't know why. After dinner with a friend, I cracked a bottle of this, and had some fresh raspberries. The flavor is dead on.

Refreshing raspberry beer. Nice deep maroon beer with a pink head. Smells like raspberry syrup to me but maybe I don't know what fresh raspberries smell like. Taste is sweet and refreshing but not overly so. Don't taste much alcohol. Mouth feel is on point. Overall 4.0.

Bright red. Smells like raspberry, tastes like raspberry juice. very low alcohol content. The downside very sugary feeling.

Not at all what I was expecting, but I guess this is what you get for a widely available shelf lambic

I am not a fan beer in general but I have realized raspberry flavored beer are more for me. It is sweet and delicious. It has a brilliant red/pink color with a vibrant sweet aroma of raspberry and other fruit. When tasting this it is soft, sweet and a hint of tanginess at the end. The sweetness of this beer is not overwhelming in any sense.

For a Belgian beer its actually pretty good! Loved the taste - sweet yet still alcoholic. Kinda bitter yet sweet. Idk I like it, most dont.

Corked bottle poured into antique bier glass

Reddish brown with good carbonation, pinkish red frothy two finger head settles into a creamy, solid layer of reddish foam. Some lacings.

Aroma is like opening a carton of raspberries fresh from the supermarket. Hints of cherries and chocolate

Sweet, tart, raspberries, cherries. Does not taste like a beer, more like a raspberry soft drink.

Low sudsing, thirst quenching tartness.

Very good. A change up style of beer. I could see sitting in an outdoor cafe on a warm summer day enjoying several of these.

On tap at World of Beer Syracuse. Deep red color. Intense raspberry smell and taste. A really beautiful beer.

Almost overly sweet with no tart, really not too complex at all. Easy to drink and refreshing though, not a bad starter beer.

The best of the Lambic style - hands down. It is like drinking a raspberry lemonade (without the lemon part). Very low ABV, so a good choice for my designated driver.

Malty juice of raspeberrys.
I asked for Liefmans' Fruitesse and they give me this, I still wonder how is the fruity Liefmans' one.

This beer is awful. It should not even be considered beer. I suppose it's the style in general.

The beer in general is very sweet and syrupy of artificial raspberry, not even jam. Lacking in tart quality and depth, this is a beginner brew, but unsatisfying for most.

Dark pink with a brown tinge and a pinkish white foam. Smells of sweetness and raspberry purée. Yup, tastes like raspberry. But the taste finishes with a slight tartness, vinegar and a oaky red wine. But overall this is way too sweet for me. Finishes surprisingly clean from the sweetness. I feel like I'm supposed to love this because I love belgian beer, but I just don't. However, if you mix framboise with Hoegaarden you get what's called a "dirty hoe" and that is a nice refreshing beer cocktail.

On tap at the Homegrown Brewhouse in Summerville, SC for Valentines Day. The perfect after-dinner drink for my wife and I, and an excellent companion to the chocolaty Russian Imperial Stout that I've been sipping. Pours in to a 6 oz snifter with an opaque, beet-red hue and 2 fingers of cranberry-cream foam. Quite a sexy looking drink. The soapy lacing and foamy collar add to the allure. The intense fresh raspberry aroma is sweet and tart. A little floral too, with a bit of sour citric character. The flavor is packed with a potent raspberry-candy fruit tartness. The delicious raspberry sugar sweetness is backed by a nice yeasty, malted grain base, reminding you that it is indeed a beer. Suggestions of clove make a subtle appearance, but ultimately the aftertaste is reminiscent of tart raspberry preserves. With a medium body and tame carbonation, it's easy and light, but not thin. Indeed it's a great complimentary texture to the distinct flavors. Personally, I'm not much of a "fruit" beer guy, but this one has always had a place in my repertoire. I enjoy this experience from time to time, and there isn't much I would change about Lindemans Framboise. Excellent dessert beer, or compliment to a host of savory dishes. Split a bottle with your lady instead of wine or champagne. It's delicious!

Slightly sweet along with the sour. Definitely tastes just like a raspberry. Very good.

Outstanding great taste when I tried this thinking it would not be good. I was shock to like it.
