Lindemans Framboise (Raspberry) 6 pack
A beautiful berry beer
This delicious lambic beer from Belgium is flavored with raspberry juice, and is a crisp and special drink with a great balance of flavor.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
A Brouwerij Lindemans classic since 1980, the Framboise is a beautiful lambic beer with fresh raspberry juice. It boasts a gorgeous deep pink color (almost red!) with a light pink foam head.
It greets you with strong aromas of raspberry, leaving no question and no doubt about the flavors that await you. And it will not disappoint. Sweet, with flavors of raspberries and hints of caramel, balanced wonderfully with the lightly sour flavor of lambic beer—incredible.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
The Lindemans Framboise is great to serve on special occasions, especially romantic ones. Break them out for engagement parties or weddings. But of course, it’s also great for any time you’re craving a fruity, balanced beer.
Pair with an arugula and endive salad with caramelized pine nuts. Have a glass with Eggs Benedict, or Belgian Waffles. It’s brilliant with dessert, especially. Enjoy it with plain vanilla ice cream or a plain cheesecake, and let the fruity beer shine.
A FRUITY ENDEAVOR
The Lindemans family has been in the business of beer brewing since 1822. Founded on a small farm in Vlezenbeek, Belgium by Frans Lindemans, they pride themselves as being set apart from everyone else, boasting a brewery and beers that are made uniquely the way they want.
They specialize in lambic beer, which begins its life with spontaneous fermentation and no human intervention. It’s known as one of the oldest styles of beer, and is usually sour and flavored with fruits.
The success of Brouwerij Lindemans in 1930 paused their agricultural activity, as focus was given more onto the brewing of Gueuze and Kriek. They eventually kept producing more types of lambic beer with great success, with the most recent one—apple, introduced in 2005.
Store beer bottles upright to prevent yeast rings from appearing. They must be kept in a cool, dark place at approximately 13°C. Don’t allow beer to be caught in bright light for long periods of time to prevent it from attaining a “skunky” taste.
