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.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2006
Dark red color, little pink head. Strongly sour and sweet aroma, mild raspberry too. Sour, mildly sweet and cherry flavor. Aftertaste lasts with sourness. Nice and finely balanced lambic.

poured out an almost greyish purple color, with small light lavender head that dissipated very quickly. had a very light taste as well as a little tart. had a bit more of a alcohol taste compared to other fruit lambics. nothing compared to lindeman’s raspberry lambic.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2006
Aroma is balanced, with some fruity and slightly nutty notes coming on. Taste is smooth and starts sour and tart however becomes far more balnced and fruity and quite dry. Good fruit lambic.

Brought this back from belgium from and cant believe its lasted till now without me drinking it. (2000 bottle). As soon as the cork fired off this the room was filled with framboise/geuze really lively and fresh. Pours an excellent pinkish colour with lasting head al through. Aroma is a bit harsh for me to start with but quickly sorts itself out to a nice rassberry, infact rasberry seeds that u get in jam. Taste is fresh and again the seeds with little nuttyness and soem light funky yeast to excite it a bit. Mouthfeel is very lively almost champagne like. Im still trying to get into lambics at the moment as they arnt easy for us to get up here in scotland and they are a very unique style of beer, but a great beer we have here no doubt.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Red-brown body, thin off-white head. Strong raspberry syrup aroma, tart, but not strongly sour. Strong tart raspberry body with some sweetness, leading to a sour, woody bite at the finish. Starts sweet, and then the sourness hits. Perfect complementation. The fruit and fruitskin tumble with the sour wood and must notes for awhile, ending with a light bitter finish. Quite a treat for the raspberry and lambic fan.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 17, 2005
Tasted 12/12/2005. 375ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. Bright red, blood-like. Crystalised light pink head that thins out and becomes quite lacey. The nose is a sweet and sour marriage of both young and pungent over-ripe raspberries. In the mouth the sour raspberry dominates, with a good deal of sweetness present too, and a long, dry, woody finish (hints at the Boon Geuze here). Just short of puckering. Medium weight. Perfectly soft carbonation. Some powderiness on the palate. Woodiness still lingers on... lovely appertif or desert beer.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Good looking burbangy yet clear. Sour nose of funky yeast and berries. Taste is tarte and sweet yet has an odd metallic linger. Enjoyable, but I think I like their kriek better.

DocLock (7826) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2005
I liked this one substantially more than the Boon Kriek. The pour was dark rubyish with a splotchy white head. The aroma was wild yeast and raspberries/cherries, with some sour fruit and female taint overtones. The flavor was a tart berry medley along with some horse barn finshing palate notes. This one was a very good lambic.

Raspberry nose and taste predominates, of course. Nice rusty-red color, low tight head. Good amount of sourness to balance the sweet - like a sweet-n-sour dish. Tart end with an earthy effect. Refreshing and just an excellent beverage!

Sweet fruity nose and taste (raspberries). Ruby red color and very fizzy. Sour and tart finish, though not too sour. Actually has a decent balance.
