MarkoNm (1992) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 20, 2015
Pours a dark ruby red color, hazy and topped with a medium small white head with pink undertone. Sweet raspberry syrup aroma. Taste is not too strong, mildly sweet and fruity, heavily on the soury raspberry taste. Mild herbal in the finish. Nice one. Not too strongly flavoured but still a decent one.

aleigator (599) - GERMANY - DEC 15, 2015
Boon framboise 2013 Pours a vibrant, ruby-red color, with a medium sized, pink, froth head. Smells of extremely jammy, sweetened raspberries. The raspberries themselves provide a nice, unripe sourness, which then gets completely wrapped up by profound fruit sugar. Due to the omnipresent sweetness, nothing else cuts through, with the exeption of a noteable tartness. Produces a silk, utmost pleasant and soft mouthfeel. The beer has a recognizable mineralic quality during its finish, evoking a fizzy impression, combined with the lively carbonation. Astonishing enough, its fantastic mouthfeel is pronounced enough to handle the beers tartness single-handedly. Offers prickly raspberries from the very beginning, balanced by moldy earth and wet hay. A strange cotton candy adds to the berries, producing a sourness swallowing sweetness, producing a slick feature during the beers finish. From its stronger pronounced minerality evolves a timid tartness after the swallow, accompanied by earth and fruit pits. This gets joined by fruit sugar and slightly muted toffee. Finishes clean, remaining its easy drinkability while renouncing a mentionable sourness. Too sweet for my taste, scouring over its subtle, but rewarding and Lambic defining flavors. While the fruits are easily noteable, they come along one-dimensional, as there is almost no taste development at all.

Cunningham (6228) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2015
Lovely nice and balanced ale.
Red color with a small pink head. Both flavor and aroma are dominated by mellow and nice raspberries. Pleasant acidity and a moderate sweetness. Medium body and a pleasant carbonation. Good intensity in both aroma and flavor. Recommendable.
[Bottle from YNWA Bottleshop in Kolding, Denmark]
