FOUNDERS NITRO RUBAEUS

On tap at End Of Elm, superb nitro-injected framboise draught perfectly complements original Rubaeus, retaining its pinkish ruby hue while gaining a sourer raspberry-rotted rasp to go against the syrupy raspberry soda sweetness above pale white wheat malting (picking up reluctant sour-candied raspberry, cranberry and crabapple tartness at the delicate Seltzer-watered raspberry finish).

FOUNDERS BLUSHING MONK BELGIAN STYLE ALE ’15

Essentially ‘Imperial Rubeaus Ale’ with four times the raspberry, this world-class framboise satisfies the senses immediately, leaving a beautifully effective tart raspberry rasp all over the tongue, nose and throat. Mouth-puckering hard candy tartness informed by lemon-drop souring, mild cider sweetness and dry cherry-pomegranate conflux, increasing sweet ‘n sour raspberry theme profusely. Faint barnyard acridity softens dry-grained spine. Tertiary red grape, plum, cranberry and balsamic vinegaring crowd raspberry soda-like finish.

ST. LOUIS FRAMBOISE

Resilient ruby-magenta-bodied pink-headed framboise offers pungently eye-squinting mouth-puckering raspberry tartness. The essence of raspberry seeds seeps into tonsils as lemony cranberry, cherry and blackberry illusions settle below syrupy pureed raspberry core. Serve to Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur buffs and wine cooler fems as better alternative. An excellent dessert beer, indeed!

CANTILLON LOU PEPE FRAMBOISE 2001

Vintage-aged ruby-hazed pinkish-headed framboise proffers tart raspberry sourness and tannic white grape pucker as carbolic hop spritz saddles fragrant dry esters. Leathery oak acridity enhances cherry-skinned crabapple-cranberry insinuation, vinous white wine sharpness, and mildewed cork tinge. Grating vinous acidity frustrates harshly bitter finish and exorbitant $28 price for 22-ounce bottle gets steep. Only daring drinkers need apply.

BOON FRAMBOISE

Ample sweet ‘n sour raspberry puree tartness inundates snazzy ruby-reddish pink-headed lambic. Dry oak-aged red grape tartness, cherry wine sweetness and strawberry-seeded goop underpin discernible raspberry overture. Light balsamic vinegar souring contrasts syrupy berry sinew. Could pass as mouth puckering Merlot or fine Cabernet, or perhaps, a delightful raspberry spritzer.
