Served in a raspberries beer glass at Cervecería The Situation. Red colour, small head that fades soon, tiny pinky lace. Aroma of raspberries, vanilla, nuts, spices. Medium body, creamy texture, good carbonation. Sweet finish Taste of raspberries, vanilla. Again, too much sweetness and not that acid.

Preface: this is not quite beer. This is an animal all its own. If you were not told what this was, you would think this was some strange bubbly wine with a malt component added. This is my first review using the LSTFO system, instead of some stream of consciousness lesson in metaphors.

L: pours a deep, dark ruby red with a brown tint and a beige red-pink (magenta, but pinker) with a strong two finger head dissipating upon the first sips, but retaining until then. No lacing down the glass as it is consumed whatsoever. Foam falls down the side.

S: like a funky, maybe last its prime in a good way raspberry at peak sweetness. Almost like a strawberry pop, with no alcohol on the nose. Swirl it and it truly opens with a fresher, more authentic raspberry scent on the treble notes and a melted butter/very faint vanilla rhythm section.

T: tastes like nothing else. I’ve had a few bottles of this and they all have the same theme, but it tastes a little different every time I have it. This 750 ml bottle was its best showing for me. I think the alcohol range is surprisingly broad on runs of this stuff and this one was the lowest, which i appreciate and prefer for what it is, whatever the fuck it is. This bottle lacked a faintly astringent taste that I’ve encountered in prior bottles. This bottle- strong, super sweet, borderline artificial raspberry taste, but in no way artificial? A perplexing funkiness to it. It’s tart, no doubt, you have to like tartness to appreciate this. Slight creamy, milky taste to it. Some brews have this taste of the smell of a dirty sock that I kind of like to it, not like super dirty but like you wore them for a day or two and have pets in your home. Like... a slight taste of the smell of when a dog is dirty but it smells good. And I love it. This stuff is weird and not for everybody. But those of us who appreciate it, really frickin’ dig it. Tasty stuff. I’m sad when it’s gone.

F: again, feels like nothing else. Frothy, slightly milky, like if you added milk to some kind of raspberry sparkling wine and it worked out well. Slight wine stringiness in the mouth after. I love the feel of this stuff.

O: overall, I love this... whatever it is. It’s not going to get you drunk off one bottle, but it will get you varying levels of buzzed depending on which batch, I feel like. I’ve only ever had New Glarus’ take on a framboise before and it’s notably better, but I still love this style and this particular rendition of it. I’ll be buying it till they stop making it.

Drink this on a relaxing evening with your lady who will undoubtedly love it, pair with something slightly spicy, like an Asian salad or spicy fish tacos. The acid cuts through the spice and compliments savoriness, to me.

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. Avg 2.56

25 Nov 2018. De Alcampo. En copa Teku. En almuerzo, con macarrones bechamel con atun. Acidez mucho mas controlada de lo que la recordaba, haciendo que sea una experiencia mucho mas agradable que la primera vez que la probé. Espuma esta vez correcta

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.
