COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Raspberry lambic was once a rarity and only produced for a few weeks during the summer. Frank Boon was the first brewer to again prepare a raspberry lambic in the summer of 1976. More than 300 grams per liter of fresh raspberries give Framboise Boon a fresh fruity taste. The young lambic supports the flavor. But this is very much about raspberries, not the lambic. Of course we do not use artificial flavorings, only real raspberries. Boon Framboise has an alcohol volume of 5%. Drink it when it is young.

Stew41 (1891) - Phuket, THAILAND - MAR 23, 2007
UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Vintage: 2005
Tasted: Jan 2009 (14/20)

Colour is holding up well; a genuine mix of orange and brown. Aromas are very attractive and show a surprising rich level of strawberry fruit, almost of confectionary-like intensity. Good stuff. Palate does a complete about face and is dominated with a bitter, sour fruit. I can’t quite put my finger on the fruit flavour; probably very sour grapefruit comes closest. All in all I thought this beer was looking pretty good if you dig sour fruits. Maybe best drunk inside 5 years from vintage.

Vintage: 2003
Consumed: March 2007

Dirty blood red, almost dull brown in colour. Unexpected, perhaps the result of both ageing and a touch of oxidation. Thin persistent head of good depth. Fruit driven nose, a little tart, but the sweet berry fruits are very evident. The first couple of sips were marred (almost severly) but a pongy, bitter sulphuric-like kick. Like bottle stink in wine. This character did subside over time but still always lurked in the background. Otherwise the palate looked decent; aged strawberries, a hint of old wood, and fading tart fruits. I reckon this might have looked better as a 2 or 3 year old.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2007
75 cl bottle, 2004. Vermilion coloured and slightly turbid, covered with a pinkish velvety head which rapidly disappears. Nose of raspberries (jam) and spring meadow. The taste is sweetish-sour, fruity (raspberries, citrus, apples) and reveals a touch of wood in the aftertaste. Fizzy water-like mouthfeel and a rounded finish.

AskForJenny (1061) - Ontario, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2007
375ml - Brown tinged red liquid, fizzy pur yileds a fleeting white head. Nose of raspberries and sour, yeasty lambic goodness. Sour lambic flavors accentuate the raspberries, bringing the quaff to a wonderful finish. Nice.

gahl06, bottled. reddish colour, decent head. very sweet aroma of raspberry cordial and raspberry seeds. tastes of hay, fruit tea, sweet and sour sauce. surprisingly sweet, hints of apple vinegar. not that great
Earlier Rating: 1/15/2004 Total Score: 3.5
my stomach was giving me a bit of grief at this point so i was glad that the main pleasure in this one was the aroma - raspberry seeds and some tannin. a little sweet with ssome nail polish remover in the finish

mjg74 (2950) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Bottle from BevMo. Pours a burgundy color. Slightly sweet, slightly tart berry aroma. Very fresh fruity aroma. Flavor is rahter tart with only a touch of sweetness. Finish is quite tart and even a little bitter. Alittle bit of a plastic taste.

I liked this beer and all of the raspberry aroma and flavor, but would still choose Lindeman’s over this one.
