Smells like the best raspberry in the world, looks dark burgundy red, tastes like slightly carbed raspberries sweet but not to much I think I was smelling 5 times to every taste, feels thinner than the taste or scent. Outstanding

From a bottle, pours as dark red (not just amber) with a delicate pink head. Aroma pretty identical to raspberry syrup. Totally reminds me of childhood over flavored (raspberry) fizzy drinks. Taste of sweet raspberry and dark sour fruit with a bit of yeast and ample carbonation. I could see this as a base for a sangria.

A stranger to the sour style, this introduction may have been a rough start. This make was partially reminiscent of Warheads, the obnoxiously acidic 90s candy. The first sweet sip of raspberry is pretty pleasant with a friendly fizz, and then the sour punch comes in strong but not overwhelming. The finish is may be the best feature, but it doesn't quite permit the price..

Pours thick reddish purple with a fizzy off white/ violet head that soon creates a film over the surface.

Smell is deffinetly raspberries, green apples, straw

Taste is ripe raspberries with subtle hint of green apple,oh so sweet with just the right amount of tart, fruit juice, candy

Overall a fantastic beer! It's thick yet so refreshing, like drinking raspberry candy

Pours a super thick red colored head. Raspberry aromas are strong but not overwhelming. No bitterness, but moderately tart flavors of raspberries. I haven't had many lambic, but this one is at the top of my list.

Decanted from a 25.4 oz (750 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; no production information.
A: Pours a cranberry to burgundy color; almost the shade of a pinot. Develops a solid, foamy half inch head with low retention but solid lacing.
S: Floral. Raspberries, along with apple and pear predominate, but there is definitely a earthy/fungal note present.
T: Sweet, but tart. Raspberry flavor predominate again with a earthy/fungy note taking the place of bitterness.
M: Medium to full bodied. A bit syrupy but with very persistent carbonation.
O: Have tried this many times. Definitely more of a dessert offering in my book, but very popular in my house. An eminently drinkable fruit lambic.

It's an above average beer, but I think it's far too expensive for what it is. Almost closer to a juice than a beer. The carbonation felt a little weak to me and it's overpoweringly sweet.

Smell is definitely sour and not much else. Raspberry taste throughout the beer, tart with a light feel and high carbonation. Taste is kinda dry but has a definite Raspberry aftertaste.

I do believe the Framboise Lambic is less sweet than the Kriek Lambic, making it more drinkable to me. This beer has an alcoholic content of 2.5% which is quite low, in fact lower than most light beers. Overall, this seems like an expensive raspberry wine cooler, which is a shame since I was expecting more beer taste from these Lambic beers.

Pours beet red with more "fizz" than froth. Outstanding aroma with real raspberry aroma very forward, with a faint hop presence. The taste is not quite as clean and rewarding. Very sweet, and the berry flavor doesn't quite taste as "real" as its aroma. As a result, it's a bit "off" for the style. The mouthfeel is pretty heavy, despite the high carbonation. All in all, a tasty drinkable beer, but not really a "lambic" in the traditional sense. But for the vague hop flavor in the background, this might be mistaken for a sweet wine cooler.

12 oz. bottle

Pours dark reddish purple with a dense creamy frothy bright pink foam head. Smells like fresh tart raspberries, some green apple, funky hay, with earthy grassy aged hops. Tastes like tart raspberry juice, green apple, hay, with earthy grassy hops. Feels medium bodied, creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a really nice framboise.
