I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Lindemans Framboise

I think that Lindeman's Framboise is a fantastic beverage, and that is probably enough for simple beer drinkers like myself. For those of you with a taste for finer things, I have not the vocabulary to describe to you this drink. I thought I'd let Lindemans do the work for me.
Long before hops were common in most beers, various fruits and vegetables were used to season beers. The acidity of Lambic beers blends perfectly with raspberries. 
Taste: Magnificent aroma, delicate palate of raspberries with undertones of fruity acidity; elegant, sparkling clean natural taste. 
Style: Raspberry Lambic. 
Color: Rose. 
Serving suggestions: Chocolate desserts (especially chocolate decadence), fresh raspberries, ice cream with a raspberry demi-glaze sauce, créme caramel, baked Alaska, Olympia oysters, caviar. Serve in flute-shaped Lambic glasses at 45 degrees. 
Serve cold at 2-3 degrees Celsius.


  1. I love Lindeman's - I suggest it to people all the time. It's one of my favorites...and it's awesome to have a Guinness along with it, if you're into beer on beer pairings. If you haven't tried them, Lindeman's also makes other flavors of Lambic that are pretty good. Framboise is still my favorite, though :) Good pick!

  2. Thanks Krahn! And who doesn't love beer on beer.

  3. pour a Young's double chocolate stout into a fluted glass about half way up .. then top it off with the Framboise! NOMS!
