Boon Framboise ( rasp) (375ml Bottle)
Traditional Belgian Lambic - 100% Spontaneously fermented ale. Aged 2 years in oak vats. Minimum 200 grams of real raspberries per liter. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name.
The beer pours with a nice red colour and a large light pink head. Smells lovely with a nice balance between the raspberries and the barnyard Lambic smell. Taste is amazing. The balance between the sweetness of the raspberries and the tartness from the fermentation play together very nicely. A great Framboise.
Lambic Style - Fruit
Lambics are wheat beers made with stale hops and fermented with wild yeasts and other microorganisms, traditionally only on the Senne Valley in and around Brussels. The most traditional of the fruit lambics are kriek (cherry) and framboise (raspberry). In modern times, peaches (peche), blackcurrants (cassis), grapes, as well as more exotic fruits are used. Traditional lambics are commonly denoted by the term "oud", which is a reference to "old-style", and these are the most sour. More commonly, though, lambics are sweetened to cut the intense acidity. Serve with sharp cheeses or pickled dishes, or use in the preparation of mussels.
