Appearance: Lindemans Framboise has a sexy fuchsia body with a pinkish magenta head.
Smell: No surprises here, the aroma is of tart raspberries.
Taste: Again, it's all about the raspberries. It's tart and sweet, but I'd say tart wins out in the end. A little yeast makes its presence known once the bottom of the bottle is reached.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a good amount of lively carbonation.
Drinkability: One could probably get through a 375 mL bottle alone, but this is the kind of beer that's best split two or three ways.
Notes: After the Framboise, there is only one Lindeman's fruit lambic left that I haven't tried (Pomme, I'm looking at you). I've come to the conclusion that they are all tasty, if less than accurate representations of what lambics traditionally have been.
The Framboise is not my favorite of the Lindeman's fruit line, but this is more of a comment on my fruit preferences than on the beer itself. Indeed, Framboise, along with Samuel Smith Organic Raspberry and New Glarus Raspberry Tart, ranks among the best raspberry-flavored beers to have touched my lips.
