Van Honsebrouck St Louis Framboise 
Posted: 25 August 2015  Beer Republic 6.0 
St Louis Framboise from Belgium Frambozenbier, raspberry beer, is one of those fruit beers Belgium is very famous for.  St Louis turns that into one of their signature lambics made from 25% juice from Willamette raspberries. Chilled well in your fridge, a St Louis Framboise lambic would fit like a hand in glove with a slice of black forest cake.          
Avg price/liter: USD 6.18   ABV %: 4.5  Type: Lambic-Fruit  Belgium 
       


Frambozenbier, raspberry beer, is one of those fruit beers Belgium is very famous for.  St Louis turns that into one of their signature lambics made from 25% juice from Willamette raspberries.          

There's a reason raspberries are so prominent in Belgian fruit beers.  Raspberries are both tart and sweet, and the raspberry flavor remains distinctive even after fermentation.  Raspberries could be the best fruit to brew a lambic with.     

Critics would be quick to point out that St Louis lambic beers have a slightly artificial taste to them.  St Louis isn't adding artificially flavored raspberry syrup to these concoctions.  You'd spot that off a mile away.  But they do add sugar for sweetening effect which likely alters the profile enough for some to think they ain't getting the real thing.        

Chilled well in your fridge, a St Louis Framboise lambic would fit like a hand in glove with a slice of black forest cake.  Who ever said you had to drink milk with it?
