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.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2008
Shared by BrianK, 1995 bottle! Hazy amber/brown in color with a small to medium pink head. Aroma is alot of sweet rasberry, with some funk in the background, as well as cobwebs. Taste is sweet initially, and all rasberry, then quickly turns pretty funky and light to moderately sour. hints of basement, yeast , and oak in the flavor.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2008
Sampled at 2007 Brewnosers’ Christmas Gathering. Light reddish gold colour with a mostly diminishing fizzy white head. A bit of sour, farmhouse, and barnyard character in the aroma, with a fruity and earthy flavour profile, but really seems like a dumbed down version of the genuine lambic article. Light bodied and almost a bit watery.

Once again, one I tried when I first experimented with lambics yet never rated. Bottle @ The Dove. Reddish amber with a thin white head. Nose of sweet raspberry and sherbert. Taste is similar, sweet and tangy yet not as artificial and funky as the kriek. It reminded me of raspberry sorbet, I quite enjoted it.

bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2007
Tasted fairly sweet (to me but not my partner) but fortunately not overly so. Musty aroma followed by the raspberry, I also thought of marzipan. Colour was a clear red with a pink head that lasted the drink.
