Framboise is a classic among the Belgian beers created by adding whole fresh raspberries (250 g/l)to a blend of young and old lambic. Framboise Oud Beersel is the missing link between beer and wine.
A reddish pink appearance with a moderate head. Aroma is light with raspberries and some tartness. Flavour is sour at the front and then sweetens with the raspberry flavour and then ends with a sour note. Tastes like fresh raspberries, with a lot of earthy peaty yeasty notes, and a tart, rather dense finish. Very well done.
Originally called « Ouden Tripel », this ancient West Flanders Brown beer has found a new élan as a regional specialty under its current name: « Bellegems bruin ». The main ingredients of our Bellegems Bruin are malted barley, wheat, hops, water, and caramelized malts. These are used to brew a bottom-fermented beer. Blending this beer with lambic beer aged in oak for 18 months results in this specific West Flanders Brown beer. Its typical flavour is characterized by a well-balanced, hardly noticeable sourness. This first flavour impression is soon followed by a second pleasant discovery: a slight bitterness followed by a hint of sweetness.
