COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Framboise Boon is a traditional Belgian Lambic fruit-beer. It is brewed according to the traditional Lambic style of spontaneous fermentation. Only fresh raspberries (25%) and wildcherries (5%)are used for this Lambic beer. Framboise Boon is the missing link between beer and wine and is served chilled in flute glasses. NO artificial sweeteners, flavourings, preservatives or colouring agents. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name.

crozdog (19) - Ascot Vale, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
More expressive on the nose than the palate... and what a nose: sweetness abounds with raspberries dominating. Much softer on the palate, but different again if swished through teeth. Really enjoyable beer!

danlo (1164) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
375ml bottle from Beautiful Beers. Red amber colour, pink foam head and aroma of raspberry & cherries, sour, wood, funk, lemon, yeast. Taste is sweet fruity tart raspberry, with woody, sour, lemon rind notes. Medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry sour finish. Refreshing, very drinkable.

b3shine (5427) - Indiana, USA - JUL 21, 2014
375 ml bottle to tulip. Looks decent; pretty soft carbonation though. A hazy amberish cherry with white lacing. Some ugly black sediment at the bottom of the bottle that I’m glad I didn’t pour into my glass. Smells fairly sweet and syrupy with notes of cherry and raspberry. A little bit of funk I suppose, but the borderline cloying nose covers it up. Tastes like it smells, it not as sweet, with an average (at best) medium-bodied mouthfeel. An underwhelming example of the style.

Nice summer sipper. Pours burgundy clear with no head or lacing. Nose is raspberry. Flavours are raspberry with some vinegar and green apples. Taste is medium sweet medium sour. Fullish body with medium carbonation.

cards04 (1758) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
A nice raspberry beer. Pours clear red with no head. Aromas are fresh raspberries and raspberry jam. Flavors are sour and tart... But quickly fading. Flat palate.

bergstaden (1250) - Røros, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
Red with a pink head - Sweet rasberry aroma with some hints of sourness in the back - Sweet berry body with a stron rasberry flavour and it is sweet, not much sourness from the lambic - Very clean and flavourful rasberry finish - This was quite nice

allmyvinyl (3347) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2014
375ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear red-brown, no head. Big raspberry aroma, slight vinegar note. Taste is creamy raspberry torte, light sour, light chalky note. Thin, but not too thin. Fruit dominates, but very nice.

Bendrixian (1108) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
cork and cage. Red hazy colour. Big fruity aroma with raspberries and sour cherries with some woodsy notes and some apple in there as well. I find this brew a little more tart than I expected with sour notes and a yeasty/estery flavour in the mid palate. It is a good beer and gets better as it opens up but for me it is a little bit too tart.
