LOU PEPE FRAMBOISE 2008

Brasserie Cantillon,  Brussels, Belgium

  • 5%ABV
  • This raspberry flavoured lambic produces a very deep red coloured, slightly carbonated beer, that is quite opaque like most lambics.
  • Unlike other flavoured natural lambics we have tried so far, the raspberry really comes through on the nose, as well as a slight yeasty, soap-like aroma.
  • This beer is really quite refreshing, excellent balance of sweet and tart and not too bitter, much fruitier than both the Gueuze and Kriek from the same brewery.
  • As the beer comes to temperature and breathes the sweetness mellows and the sour flavours and bitterness become more prevalent, compared it to sucking on Vicks raspberry flavoured cough drops.
  • This beer we felt improved with a colder temperature, and having been left for a little while was very pleasant, and refreshing.
