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.
St-Bernardus Extra 4
Extra 4 is a classic Belgian “Single” style. Hazy deep hay yellow liquid with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat, perfume, cloves, bread, spices and white pepper. Medium bitterness with flowery sweetness. Yeast, grass, fruit, hops and citrus. Extra 4 will be a unique, tasty and refreshing spring and summer quencher with a lower alcohol content than such other popular St Bernardus products as Abt 12, Tripel and Prior 8.
