Oud Beersel Framboise

$6.99 for the 375 mL, corked & caged bottle from Mac’s in Atlanta, GA, USA. SB 52 on the cork. Seemed like another good choice for Valentine’s Day.
A light pop on opening, but nothing dramatic. A mild puff of gun smoke.
A pinkish, orange body that looks a little thin and lacks much depth. Some lace, but not great deal.
Nose is big on the tart raspberries.
The beer is a simple, relatively non-complex lambic that has a larger level of tart character than the Kriek version, but is still pretty mild on the grand scale of things.
Another excellent beer to introduce lambics to a newbie without exposing them to a crazy tart Cantillon or a crazy sweet Lindemans version. Raspberry seeds come through strongly in the finish. This is very tasty.
A touch prickly in terms of carbonation in the mouth but still very nice and it complements the package well. The finish combines the gentle tartness and fruit sweetness beautifully.
