For this week’s beer I chose one of my favorite and on by far one of the most famous Lambics in the world. I’m always excited to introduce this lambic to my friends because I know their reactions will be predictably hilarious.
The incredible Framboise Lambic–particularly the one with raspberries added.
This lambic, while lightly carbonated, is extremely flavorful–every sip is very sour–and the red color of it makes it seem like anything but beer. In addition to the taste, the smell of raspberries from this beer is very strong too!
Due to the strong fruity smell and taste of it, some people might not enjoy it as much as others. “This is juice, not beer!” ~ My roommate
I personally think this beer sits very well with people who aren’t much beer drinkers. HAVING SAID THAT, I know that if you truly have an appreciation for beer you will enjoy it very much.
Overall, this Belgium lambic to me is more than just beer; it’s an art!
The taste, smell, and packaging of the Framboise makes is something to remember; whether you love it or hate it, you will talk about it.
I’ll give it a 4/5.
HOWEVER, I can never drink more than one of these in a sitting.
