shared a 75cl bottle at Nüetnigenough (Brussels, Belgium)

Lou Pepe Framboise is to a double-pound cheeseburger what Rosé De Gambrinus would be to a quarter-pounder; both delight and amaze in their own right, but one is definitely a richer more intense version of the other.

An abundance of raspberry on the nose, with the good ol' barnyard funk we've come to expect and love from the magic of the River Senne. Lots of tart, dark berry, and even a little bit of oak emerge from the bottle once the cork comes off; a sour lemon-y residue lingers while the bottle decants.

Sour isn't usually my go-to response with Framboise, but it is in this case. The nose is wonderfully matched on the tongue as well, as funky sour hay flavors quickly follow the tart dark fruit. I'd even dare to say that the berry flavor is closer to cranberry than it is to raspberry; remind me to mix this with vodka if I ever find myself holding an excess supply.

From notes on 9/10/15. Was able to buy a 2012 Lou Pepe Framboise for on premise consumption only at Cantillon. Heck of a deal at 14 euro. Must say wow, this is easily the best Lambic/sour beer I’ve had. Big sweet berry smell. Had a huge barnyard aroma that I like too. Tons of tart delicious raspberry flavor. Just one freakin awesome beer.
