From cervezas belgas. In Teku glass. At lunch, with rice soup + turkey steaks. The natural acidity of the framboise makes its sourness a bit too intense, becoming slow to drink yet not unpleasant. Little foam

Very dark cherry color. Just above average body with plenty of almost champagne like carbonation. Aroma is an intense raspberry almost cherry like smell. There's a little bit of malt, yeast and a little funk.
Taste is very similar , sweet with a small amount of a sour funk to balance it out. Overall it's an excellent beer but it does come off like sparkling juice

My spouse bought a gift pack containing two champagne-side bottles of Lindemans lambic beer and two glasses, flutes that she said were 'cute'. Framboise pours a deep purple with a pink head. the smell is very fruity, raspberry. I shared with two others. The flavor together with the mouthfeel was pretty bad. It's like carbonated strong raspberry juice and extremely tart. We all three concurred. no one finished their gals, not even the small cute flutes. The remainder of the bottle was poured down the sink. I think the other large bottle, Lindemans Peche, will remain in the fridge for awhile.

Pours purple, looks almost soda like. Smells like delicious raspberry. Very sweet. Almost no bitterness. More sweet than sour. The lambic part seemed missing. However it tasted great if you group it on its own.

I really liked this. Although it is only my first officially rated lambic. Pours purple. Light purple head. A little bit of lacing. Some funky fruity aroma and barnyard-ness happening. Taste is of sweet and slightly sour raspberries. Feel is medium carbonation with a tart, dry finish. Overall, I really like it.

My thoughts on this "beer..." I would more classify this drink as a slightly alcoholic soda. Don't get me wrong, the taste is VERY good. Very sweet, very good dessert drink. This would be a great gift to a person that does not like beer, but you insist that there is one they would like and buy them this. As long as you insist to call this beer, you win that argument.

However, the reason I give it a 3.5 overall is because this barely qualifies as beer. I wouldn't even call it beer. Yea yea, lambic yeast, blah blah. Drink it and look me in the eye and call it beer. Do you like alcohol with your beer? Then don't buy this.

As a mildly alcoholic drink, this is one of the best. As a beer, not great!

This is more raspberry-like than raspberry juice. The smell is incredible and fruity. I was surprised to see how red in color it was. It looked and tasted similar to a sparkling wine. Overall, this is a delicious and refreshing beer.
