In English, framboise is used primarily in reference to a Belgian lambic beer that is fermented using raspberries, and in Dutch is referred to as Frambozenbier. It is one of many modern types of fruit beer that have been inspired by the more traditional kriek beer, which is made using sour cherries.
Framboise is usually served in a small glass that resembles a champagne glass, only shorter (could also be a goblet). Most framboise beers are quite sweet, though the Cantillon brewery produces a tart version called Rosé de Gambrinus that is based on the traditional kriek style. The Liefmans brewery uses oud bruin beer instead of lambic to make its framboise beer, resulting in a very different taste. Recently, Framboise has become popular outside Belgium, and can now be found in pubs and supermarkets all over the world.
