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.

Bottle, poured into tumbler. Straight up ruby-purple, wisp of pinkish head that recedes to nil. Nose is raspberries, iron, wool, a little bit of wood, soft mineral character. Raspberry notes are just a little sharp at first, but soon soften. Finish is quick. Solid, distinguishes itself.

bartlebier (1715) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2014
37,5cl bottle, 2012 vintage. Opens with that dull lambic pop, pours a rather murky mauvish ruby. Aromas of raspberry pits and vinous zestiness give way to a much duller taste profile, earthy, and near stale. I do appreciate the old hop presence and the nice astringency, but else the lustre is very contained in this non-expressive tired framboise juice offering.

From bottle 375ml to glass. Red fruit squash color. Small RedWhite head. Taste somehow Carbonated, Rasberries, citrus, herbs. Smells fruity, more like a soda.

Pours rich red with a small white ring. Aroma is sweet raspberries and tartness. Taste is sweet raspberry with a tart snap that is delicate yet assertive. Slightly astringent but easily enjoyable.

[Köpenhamns ölfestival 2014] Nu snackar vi, en fin balans mellan bärens fruktighet och syrlighet, kroppen var okej och balansen likaså.
