Timmermans Framboise Lambic (250ml Bottle)
Red-amber in colour, fresh raspberry aroma, with a sweet-sour taste.
Pours a clear, pink colour with a foamy, light pink head and strong carbonation is strong. It has a perfumey aroma of tart raspberries. Taste is absolutely delicious with tart, sour raspberries, a dry acidity, and a pleasantly dry finish. Hops and malt are delicate and balance the sweet raspberries. The ingredients are in perfect harmony. An excellent brew.
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.
