Liefmans Framboise (375ml Bottle)
All-natural, no syrups added, only whole raspberries pressed into juice just before being added to the beer. Features a massive raspberry aroma and the fresh, lively character of champagne.
Pours a ruby-brown colour, with a small head. The aroma is of sour fruit and berries and the taste is fruity (raspberries, cherries), juicy and malty with a slight sourness. It's sweet but not oversweet, with a medium-bodied and woody mouthfeel. A well made, balanced fruit beer.
Sour ale is a broad spectrum of wild ales, from the fruity and acetic Flanders Red Ales and Oud Bruins, to the experimental ales gaining popularity in the United States which use lactobacillus, brettanomyces and pediococcus in new and wild ways.
