The Beer

Europeans have been drinking fruit beer for centuries. The Celts were partial to apple beer. The Belgians mastered the brewing of fruit beers a long time ago. This tradition goes back hundreds of years.

Fruit lambic is the best known variety. Lambic, the oldest beer in the world, is a spontaneously fermented beer that does not require the addition of yeast.

Fermentation starts at the cooling down point, when the characteristic microflora from the Pajottenland and the valley of the Zenne (the Brettanomyces bacteria) infect the wort...

Nowadays there are also fruit beers on the market that are brewed on the basis of witbier, pils or Vlaams roodbruin to which fruit juices or aromas are added.

The Lindemans Framboise was introduced in 1980. To produce this fruit beer, 30% pure raspberry juice is blended with one-year-old lambic, hence the beautiful dark pink colour.

Blending the lambic and fruit juice results in a significant reduction of the alcohol content. Framboise makes for an excellent aperitif but also lends itself to culinary use, as an ingredient for sauces for example.

The other fruit beers in the Lindemans range include Kriek, Pecheresse (peach), Cassis and Apple.

The brewery also produces the Oude Kriek Cuvée René (a traditional kriek made with whole krieken cherries), the Oude Gueuze Cuvée René, Faro, Gueuze and an ‘oude gueuze’ on the basis of basil (SpontanBasil).

Character, Tastes & Aromas

The tart raspberry aromas give this Lindemans Framboise a slight wine-like character, the lively and sharp first taste quickly goes over in a soft and tasteful palate.

This framboise is a perfect balance between the fruit's sweetness and the sharp character of the lambic.
