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.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a clear and effervescent reddish copper color, briefly topped by a quarter inch of white foam. This reduces to a ring in short order. Tart fruity and slightly cheesey aroma. Light fresh raspberry and strawberry flavor sits on top of a tart and slightly funky brew. The finish is quite tart a lemony, with a very mild herbal hop presence. Tart acidic raspberry lingers in the aftertaste. Medium body and gentle carbonation.

tish (35) - In transition at the moment, Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle. Mild berry aroma, little carbonation. Light raspberry flavor with a somewhat dry sour/funk aftertaste.

Hoser (370) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Palatable enjoyable but no where as good as their kriek and nowhere close to the best Framboise that I have had from Drie Fountaine. Page 65 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 199 Classic brews to go.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2007
Dark red-brown, not very nice to look at. Raspberry aroma; some sweetness there. Taste is a curious woody mixture of sweetness, sourness and bitterness with a faint aftertaste of raspberry jam. Like eating unripe fruit. Would have liked a little more sourness to be honest.

leaparsons (8649) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2006
Bottle. Deep red with a disappearing head. Aromas are sweet and sour raspberry with some woody and vanilla notes. Flavours are juicy and tart raspberry with an agricultural character. Cherry drop sweets sourness on the finish. Fairly dry on the finish.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 23, 2006
Bottled(375ml). -Deep red coloured, medium sized head that lasts not more than 3 seconds. Sweet raspberry nose. Very fizzy. Strong sour raspberry aroma with obvious sugar presence. Moderate sour finish and not so pleasant metallic aftertaste. 2005vintage

SteC (140) - Oostende, BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2006 This Framboise is based on the oude gueuze. Much to my surprise, it turned out less sour than expected. The beer shows a nice pearly head which disappears rather fast. When I tasted it, it showed some sourness with a dry aftertaste. A good beer, but not exceptional.

henrikb (1259) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2006
2000 - Red brown hazy body, off white beautiful head; Very framboisen like nose with a very little kriek (?) behind, sweet, huge, the age has gotten it with a little dust; Big carbonation, super sweet body, only very, very little acidity; Medium long dusty dry finish, some framboisen and quite a bit of brown sugar.

marcus (7172) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 13, 2006
2004 bottle. This red/brown lambic ale poured with a pinkish head. The flavor was initially sweet with a bit of carbonation, but turned to a tart finish. The raspberry flavor is well integrated.

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 10, 2006
12 oz. bottle dated 01-09-2008 served in a Lindemans glass. Rose-tea in color with a tiny amount of lace that quickly disseminates. Nose of sweet raspberries and a smidge of sour funk. Starts sharply tart, then sour effervescent horsiness envelops the tongue, followed by a surprisingly dry, lingering sour finish with a touch of astringency.
