The Framboise Lambic from Brouwerij Lindemans in Vlezenbeek, Belgium pours out deep beet red in color with some purple hues and is topped with a large, pink colored, tightly knit head that dissipates quite quickly to a thick film with a collar. On the nose, aromas of fresh raspberry, raspberry jam, yeast and slight sourness. In the mouth, flavors of fresh raspberry juice with some sour cherry and a little woody, earthiness. Sweet and tart. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Slight syrup to the mouthfeel. Some lacing on the glass. A long finish packed with raspberry flavor that ends with a pucker of tartness.
Like the Cassis Lambic I had the other day, a good fruit lambic without being overly complex. Excellent real fruit flavor. Recommended.
