Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Lindemans' Framboise Lambic 
Brouwerij Lindemans
Lenniksebaan, 1479
Vlezenbeek, Belgium
Est. 1811

Brain Damage Quotient = 2.5 % ABV
Fluid Oz. = 12.0 

Postmortem Brew Review
Deep red color.
Lots of raspberry essence in the aromas; big and bold
Pink foamy head goes to about one finger high, then gone quickly.

Non existent lacing.
Dry, sparkling clean taste of raspberries; not much else going on.
Light bodied mouth feel. Low alcohol. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Is it a beer? Is it a fruit drink? It is both. Incredibly fruity by nature, we chose to mix this with a hefe weizen to tone it down a bit.  Barley, wheat, yeast and raspberries make up this unusual beer.  That's right, no hops. The raspberries really shine in the aromas and the taste.

Enjoy this with your favorite dessert, especially something chocolate.  Or, try one by yourself, if you dare.  It won't be a high alcohol content that keeps you from drinking more than one.  It's those damn raspberries. They go, "KAPOW!" on your taste buds.
