World-Class
Notes: Blend of raspberries with two-year-old lambic - 300 g per litre.

Beer with very intense fruitiness. The natural tartness of the raspberries nicely complements the lambic’s slight acidity.

This beer will keep for a long time in a good cellar but we recommend to drink it within the year to enjoy the intensity of the fruit.

Color: ruby
Serving Temperature: 12 °C/54 °F

Enjoyed this in Brussels. Love raspberry and the Lambic balance was excellent. The beer is relatively acidic to the mouth so be prepared. Love this as a desert .

750 ml corked and capped bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5%. Made with 300 g of raspberries per liter beer. Clear signal red colour, moderate pink head. Intense aroma of raspberries (no surprise). The flavour is very sour with notes of lemons and raspberries, fairly dry and crisp.

2015 vintage. Tart raspberries with typical funk. Had the 2012 Kriek and the 2013 side by side. The kriek was a touch superior, followed closely by the framboise.

Today our fence is being repaired after a Tornado ripped through the neighborhood almost three weeks ago, so I am celebrating by drinking Cantillon Lou Pepe Framboise (2015). It was among the best Lambics that I've ever had.

Look: dark red with an inch thick off-white head

Aroma: raspberry, white wine.

Taste: The flavor is tart raspberry, lots of raspberry, lemon, oak, white wine, and there's a very long and pleasant tart and dry raspberry after taste.

Body/Overall: medium body

Beautiful red slightly pinkish color with a thin head.
Sour aroma with notes of raspberries, horse mantle, lemon drops and nice funkiness.
Flavor with notes of lemon sourness, raspberries, white wine, mild sulfur, lactic acid and oak. Dry aftertaste with practically no residual sugar.
Light body with mild carbonation. It is not flat as in Lambic.
This is how a Fruit Lambic should be. No sugar residues with the raspberries fruitiness that is an extension of the natural Lambic flavors.

Vibrant ruby with a soft head settling to a persistent creamy white film and thick collar.

Taste is full of seedy raspberry with a mild, balanced acidity that's woodier and a little funkier than Gambrinus. The soft fluffy body comes across as a bit more delicate than Gambrinus, and a little less sour. The semi-dry finish brings up notes of toasty cracker and a little char, but overall LPF is really expressive of fruit without the added acid that often comes along with it.
