Blend of raspberries with two-year-old lambic - 300 g per litre.

Beer with very intense fruitiness. The natural tartness of the raspberries nicely complements the lambic’s slight acidity.

This beer will keep for a long time in a good cellar but we recommend to drink it within the year to enjoy the intensity of the fruit.

As opposed to Rosé de Gambrinus, which is produced by blending one- and two-year old lambics, Framboise Lou Pepe only uses beers that have matured in casks for two years.

Beers selected for their elegant and wine-like characteristics.

We use 300 g of fruit per litre of lambic for this delightfully fruity beer.

2005 vintage. Bottle shared at Brasserie 4:20 in Rome. Alex is the man and has gone to great lengths to insure that his vintage bottles are cellared correctly. This bottle was fantastic. Clear garnet pour with an off white head. The aroma was pure luscious raspberry. The taste was absolutely dominated by tart raspberries. To be honest, I expected the fruit to be almost gone and instead replaced by sour funk notes. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The were some acidic notes and even a hint of vinegar, but the funk and barnyard flavors I have come to expect were non-existent. This bottle was crisp, clean, and refreshing. Simply outstanding.......

Copper with a small white head. Some oxidized strawberry jam. Soured and intense. Strawberry jam still comes through. Nice.
