In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Brouwerij Oud Beersel Framboise

Aroma: “Gorgeous aroma of blackberry up front with slight orange and black pepper notes above all the berries. Medium funky notes mostly dominated by the fruit. Moderately high sweetness with jammy raspberry notes.”

Flavor: “I was expecting sweetness from the aroma, but there is none. Big jammy blackberry, light acidity, slight black pepper notes, almost black currant. Good raspberry dry notes up front that are not long lasting. Moderate carbon- ation plays well with fruit characters. As it warms there is a little sweetness with a touch of herbs toward the end of the sip. Nicely attenuated dry body. Funky earthy notes play a supporting role.”

Overall: “Good berry notes with just a touch of sweetness. This is a great summer beer with a low body and tasty fruit without a lot of sweetness. The flavor profile is relatively simple, but it is just so damn good!”
