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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Both the bottle and draught versions of Boon’s framboise are too sweet for me; way to sweet in fact. I like my lips to pucker when I drink lambic so this one isn’t for me.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2007
An attractive dark ruby colour with a small but sustained head, the aroma was of ripe raspberries underscorred with some delicate maltiness. Medium body and quite light carbonation. Fruity sweetness on the palate, well balanced by a sharp tartness which fades nicely onto the finish.

DarkMagus (475) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Poured an appealing light red/pinkish color with a good amount of carbonation and champagne-like bubbliness. Sour, funky, candy-like aroma with a mouthwatering raspberry character and a faint mustiness. Flavors were fairly straightforward... sour candy raspberry--more sweet than sour--and some faint woody musty notes. Mouthfeel was bubbly and champagne-like with a slight acidic/dry finish. Overall this was not all that complex of a lambic... I kind of wanted more intensity and more SOURNESS... plus it was a bit on the expensive side. But good stuff nonetheless, worth trying at least once.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Hazy red, no head. Aroma is soapy with a tart raspberry scent. Flavor is very dry raspberry flavor like if it was just a raspberry peel, classic soapy belgian gueze taste. Flavor is a lot drier than I thought it would be tart. What a great gueze with fruit added.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Ruby-red orange pour that looks like a waning sunset. Cloudy body with a significant amount of sediment. Absolutely no head or lacing. The aroma is of fresh raspberries, strawberries, and some funky, sour yeast. The flavor is essentially the same, though everything is a bit intensified. Fresh fruit on the nose seemed to turn to Jolly Rancher type sweet flavors. The sourness of the yeast seemed to strengthen as well. Sweet up front, moving to a quick and dry, fruity finish. The body is slightly watery, though it goes down smooth and is incredibly easy to drink. About as refreshing as a beer can be.
