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.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy red/amber with a moderate white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of barnyard, acidity, and some raspberry. Taste is an excellent mixture of sweet and sour raspberries. Medium thin mouthfeel that finishes dry and not to sour. Delicious.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2010 Bottle 75 cl Vintage 1995. Previous known entry as "Boon Framboise Mariage Parfait" at 6.2% ABV.
200 grams of cherries for every liter leaves it’s mark: nice pink colour with a white head, almost clear. Extremely fruity, berry-like nose. Perfectly balanced between the sweet and sour. Sometimes framboises can be an overly cloying affair, but never here. 040799

yngwie (16507) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2010 Bottle at Københavnske Øldage. 5% ABV. Orange, almost clear body with a small, pinkish white head. Raspberries, sweetness and sour notes in the aroma. The flavoris a bit boring and weak, yet quite good, with raspberries, sweetness and sourness. Weak, tart mouthfeel. I think it’s too sweet, but definately drinkable. Rating: 6-3-7-3-14-3.3. 070512

Bottle, 75cl corked, vintage 2004, 6.2% ABV, the beer formerly known as Framboise Mariage Parfait. A hazy, reddish copper colored beer topped by a small white head. Berries, notes of almod and a pleasant funk level in the aroma. The flavor is mostly raspberries, but also a bit candyish. Some almond flavors, and a little touch of barnyard and sourness. Tart, medium body. Berries dominates the finish. A smooth beer, almost too easy drinkable. 100115

6/9/07: Sample at Columbus Ale Fest ’07.
OMG, this is a good beer. Aroma of barnyard and raspberries – fresh raspberries that is. Body is also raspberry coloured. Sour-sweet and de-lish. Flavors remind me of a raspberry ganache that would be used for a wedding cake.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2007
1997 bottle shared with a bunch of people at Spuytin Duyvil. Huge raspberry aroma right off the pour, with a very old character and various sherry notes. Lots of raspberry in the taste, with a good bit of residual sweetness and decent complexity. I would’ve liked more sourness in this, but the sweet is quite pleasant and well done.
Earlier Rating: 10/19/2006 Total Score: 3.3
Nothing too special here. Aroma is lots of sweet raspberries and only a touch of funk. Flavor is similar, with more sweetness than the aroma, a little acidity, salt, sour cherries. Bottle from secret santa, thanks!

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 7, 2007
355ml bottle poured in a flute. Boon Framboise pours with a large off-white head and an apple cider-colored body with large pieces of pulp. It has an intense nose of acid, dry wood and raspberries. This promises to be a heartburn in a bottle. It is intensely sour with vinegar bite. After the shock of the first sip the beer settles into a highly carbonated mouth-party of tart raspberries, acid and happy little bubbles. The finish isn’t as dry as I would expect but has an unexpected watermelon exit that leaves your mouth watering for more.

Bottled. Hazy murky reddish brown colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is earth, raspberries and some sourness. Flavour is raspberries, sourness and some earthy notes. Pleasantly balanced and overall very nice.
Earlier Rating: 1/26/2006 Total Score: 3.5
Bottled. Deep red colour, mediumsized reddish head. Aroma of raspberries and sourness. Flavour is sourish sweet with mild raspberry tones coming in, pleasantly balancing up the whole thing. A bit watery to the palate and nicely tickling carbonation.

This is a nice framboise. By the looks of the bottle, I think the best buy date is 2008 - I’m not sure how long they project these, but lambics can go awhile, so I figure this one has been around awhile, which is consistent with the beers I’ve been getting in FL. This was the first time I was scared of the sediment in a beer, which came out during the last pour, thick chunky and black! I decanted the better part of my glass into another glass and dumped the rest. Otherwise the beer was good, pouring an orangey red color with a foaming but fast pinkish head. Funky barnyardy, leathery and raspberryish aroma, with a hint of pitty earthiness. Flavor nicely sour, really just about the perfect amount of acidity: hard, but not overly acetic. Complemented, rather than cut, with a sweet raspberry undertone. Drying finish, with lingering woody notes. Light refreshing palate with good carbonation. Good one.
