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.

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.

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 (7085) - 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.

Miksu (5023) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2006
0,375 l bottle, vintage 2003. Red color with dull pink head. Sweet and acidic aroma. Strong parfumy and rosy aroma of raspberry and strawberry. Some distant earthy and leathery lambic notes in the background. Sweet and acidic flavor with quite heavy, bitter and funky aftertaste reminding bitter tonics. Great balance between sweetness, sourness, funk and fruit.

fonefan (37269) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2006
Bottle. Vintage 2004. Redish-orange color with a thin white head. Aroma is very strong and loaded with raspberry, raspberry seeds, vanilla, wood and some funky sourness. Amazing flavor, tons of raspberries. Balanced with a slightly sour, funkiness and caramel malt backbone. Sweet and sour at the same time. Lighter body with an almost creamy texture and a dry finish.
Earlier Rating: 11/3/2006 Total Score: 3.6

Rasberry syrup meets Rolling Rock. This isn’t beer...this is torture. Glad I didn’t pay for this one!
