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.

Cloudy read orange color with a small little head on top. Raspberry - but medium - sweet nose - kinda tart. Medium sour raspberry taste mixed up with lot’s of cherries and some thyme. Get*s your tongue with a nice smooth whipped cream feeling on the tongue.

Vintage 2000: Rhasberry (really??)-cake, acidic nose. Purple with a little red/purple head. Acidic framboise taste. Light sweet aftertaste. Very good balance.

Excellent raspberry aroma with some lambic funk. Light pink; fairly clear. Flavor is light raspberry with lambic weirdness, yeast, some barnyard. The most sour fruit lambic I have had, but still not has sour as a lambic without fruit.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Boon Framboise: Pinkish red color. 2003 vintage. Sugary raspberry juice aroma. Sourness dominates next to a sugary sweet raspberry flavor. Some woody tannines. Fruity bitterness in the aftertaste. Boon seems to be on the right track.

Boon Framboise Mariage Parfait Pinkish red color, pink head. Strong raspberry aroma, just a bit of cherry and some oak. Full bodied. Fairly sweet and a bit sugary. Raspberry and almond flavor. Not too much sourness, the emphasis is on the fruit. Good beer, but I prefer the sour framboises. 2012 bottle. Tasted july 2013. Purple brown color. Raspberry yoghurt in the aroma. Relatively full bodied. oak, almonds, raspberry jam. Yoghurt in the flavor. Sweetish, but not sugary sweet. Really liked it.

Bottle, 355ml, date unknown. Nice white head and amber/red coloring, although I would prefer a bit more color depth. Nose is big raspberries with nice light touchs of lime and floral hops (after it settles for a minute). Flavor is well balanced - not too sweet, bitter, or tart. Palate is average. Not an aggressively tart or bitter lambic and, in that sense, a bit too refined for my tastes. I want more of that wild, "what the @!$% was that" flavor in my lambics. Great choice for a dessert beer or a casual summer evening.

Good stuff. Tart-- moreso than the kriek, but very tastey, classy, not-too-sweet. Not overwhelmingly raspberryish either. I prefer this stuff over the kriek for sure.

Bottle. Tart raspberry and musty aroma - very nice. Dark red-brown color with no head. Tart raspberry with slight bitter middle and musty lambic finish. I like this beer as it is in between the traditional lambic sourness and cloying commercial fruit lambics with not too much of each - however may be too middle of the road for some.

Suffering from a hangover, I wanted something fairly light to help me through. I figured that what I assumed was a fairly sweet lambic would do the trick. Pours a dark pink color with a thin pink head. Smells like raspberries. Not quite as sweet as I thought it would be, I definitely see the sour patch kids comparison that the rater below me suggested. Not quite as sour as that though. Nice and tangy with sweet candy raspberries there to contrast the sourness. It’s definitely helping rid me of this hangover. Good job guys.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2005
Bottle@Plan B, Copenhagen. This was officially the first beer i had at the Euro summer gathering (i snuck a few beers in before with kook). I can’t remember who bought this, i think it was joss, but i’m not sure. Whoever it was, thanks for starting me off with this! This was lovely. Red/pink clour, looked beautiful in the champagne flute. Nice tart rasberry seeds character, some nice fleshy rasberry in there aswell. Lightly sweet to start. perfect mouthfeel, unbelievably refreshing, dry and sour/tart. man, i love rasberries. Classy.

Deep reddish brown colour. Smells quite sweet, however it didn’t come across on the palate. It was sweet at first, but finished of dry, slightly sour and slightly tart, a very nice fruit lambic, quite complex aswell and refreshing aswell.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2005
Bottled. Vintage 2000. Pours red, with a frothy pink head. Aroma is intense of fresh rasperries. Taste is slightly sour, with notes of brett, and an explosion of fresh fruit. Truely on of the worlds great beers

Bottled vintage 2002. Pours a dark pink, with a small pinkish/white head. Aroma is intese raspberries, with some tartness. Taste is rather sour, but still with a litle sweetness from the fruit. The raspberries Does dominate the taste, but there are some funky brett there too. This is a rather nice Framboise

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Ahhhh… it’s got a sugary sweetness to it… another bunk semi commercialized Fruit Lambic!
Pours a rusty cherry colored body and a muddied light pink head. The aroma has many of the rustic barnyard suggestions of wild yeast, and what seems to be a Geuze base… but there is a fake raspberry aroma and flavor that basically kills the whole feel of this supposedly “old world style beer.” The acidic tartness of the Geuze is still there giving off some cheesy, astringent, offbeat horsy characteristics… but largely… this Lambic seems contrived for the masses and not the aficionados, to which I am neither, IMHO! - This beer reminds me of a fruity candy called Sour Patch Kids.
