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.

mecafilo (168) - Perugia, ITALY - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a dark red, almost purple colour, frothy white head. Aroma is very rich jn fruity notes, but still balaced; very good. Taste is medium sweet, quite faint; a bit disappointing, compared to the aroma. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation.

Light body, soft carbation, slick mouthfeel. Tastes sweet, raspberry, a bit acidic. Finishes with nice raspberry notes. Decent enough, nice finish, but overall both taste and smell are not fully satisfying. 7, 4, 7, 3, 14

rxeight (2150) - Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2015
375ml 2013. Rusty dull red. Smells like raspberry, but not good raspberry, like fruit that’s way past prime that you forgot in the fridge drawer and have to throw away. Taste - first thought was this is bathtub wine. Bad raspberry alcohol in a boons farm sort of way, but without the glucose extract sweetness. Not sour at all, despite saying lambic. No thanks.

Une très belle framboise au nez superbe d’élégance et de fruit et à la bouche qui allie la rondeur du fruit à la fraîcheur du lambic, un délice par cette chaleur.

ChtiBreizh (385) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 10, 2015
Unclear pink, frothy head. Jammed raspberries, cherries, cellar, light vinegar. Medium sweet and not very sour for a lambic. Impression of a lacking freshness, reinforced by the soft carbonation.
