3.51/5  rDev +9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Medium amber brown, with a small, dense white head. The lacing is thick and glass-coating.

Aroma: Dense notes of intensely sweet raspberries, faint vanilla, slight horse blanket and a hint of barnyard.

Taste: Opens with strong, tart raspberry, followed by some lemon rind. The raspberry and lemon rind carry throughout the taste. At the close, there is a moderate lambic sourness, which serves to balance the raspberry at the close.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, rather pleasant, with a hint of champagne-like carbonation.

Drinkability/notes:Not bad, certainly light when compared to Lindeman's Frambois, but pleasant.

Presentation: Packaged in an eleven point two ounce brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a Limdeman's Lambic flute.

3.86/5  rDev +19.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pinkish brown colour, a mix of the two together, no visible carbonation, 2 fingers of white merangue like head.

S: Fruity, sour, a lactic quality like milk, jam like strawberry jam, a sweet quality like white sugar itself, like I’m about to have jam on toast as there is a malty breadyness as well.

T: Sour and sweet all come in together, then the flavours of again a strawberry jam, then a malty breadyness all come into play, fruit then malt on each sip. Not really distinguishing raspberries themselves, all along I’ve been saying strawberries as that’s more the taste I’m getting as perhaps its that muted, though its obviously a raspberry beer. Mostly its just a red fruitiness. On the burp its definitely raspberry.

M: Medium somewhat acidic and syrupy body. Low carbonation

O: Delicious beer. Says it’s the oldest Frambois Lambicus in the world. Drank April 21 in Kunming China. Got this one here from one of my 2 friends who sells decent imported Belgian beers. I haven’t seen this beer elsewhere in the world, even dare I say Belgium that I can remember. I think its great, but after having Cantillon I know this has sugar added. Certainly not as much as Lindemans, which is more commonly found here.

a nicely done fruit beer, but in the context of other belgian framboise types, its a step below the best. pink in color, almost as much so as the label, and very well carbonated. the berries lend more sugar than tartness in this incarnation, but there is plenty of both elements and just enough acid to cut the sugar. good use of fruit. pale wheat malt almost isnt quite enough of a base for this, as the fruits are really all you can taste or smell, and the yeast is similarly uneventful. if you are a lover of a well done fruity beer, this could be your choice, but for me i am missing the other beer elements, and the snappy dryness of the best versions. great carbonation though and with such a low alcohol content, this is a very sessionable brew, more of a summer thing for me, but a tasty raspberry jam offering from timmermans.

this beer exemplifies the diversity of beer - an easy drinking, sweet berry, summer delight

aroma: warmed up raspberry cordial predominates with berries, apple and blackcurrant

taste: strong raspberry, berries and sherbet with apple, blackcurrant and candy

the beer purists might mark it down for it's softdrink like taste but I think it's great. Full of raspberry goodness, it's a nice contrast to the majority of hop filled beers (which I greatly enjoy) on the market. A great beer to share with friends as it caters for most tastes
