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.

pineypower (2614) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Nice reddish color with a small pinkish head. The aroma is nice with a good note of raspberries. Taste isn’t bad either, on par with other fruit beers I’ve had.

Sigmund (5447) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2005
Bottle, at Plan B, Copenhagen. Fizzy, clear red colour, initially large head. Aroma is ripe raspberries (no surprise), "over-ripe" perhaps. Fruit garden notes, smells like an "Indian summer" day. Also notes of blackberries. Flavour is again raspberries, not too sour, well balanced, vinous qualities. A supreme fruit lambic.

diabel (1614) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2005
Bottle of the 2000 Vintage Clear, red body. Lightly pink, fizzy head which diminishes mostly. Lightly sweet raspberry aroma. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter initial flavour. Moderately bitter, lightly acidic finish. Lightly to medium bodied. Fizzy carbonation. The raspberry flavour is quite complex, but not dominated by the complexity as a Westy is, but rather dominated by simplicity with complexity underneath it (but you have to look carefully).
Earlier Rating: 12/29/2003 Total Score: 3.5
Rose body-colour, slightly pinkish head. Quite a lot of bubbles in the not-very-transparant body. The aroma is sweet-sour and of course fruity because of the raspberries. The flavour is also sour-sweety with an appearance of raspberries. This is a very pleasant drinkable beer.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 VINTAGE 1986, Bouteille, 75 cL. Couleur rouge lumineuse sous une adéquate mousse rose. Parfums absolument incroyable piquant notre intérêt pour les voyages à travers le temps. Pleinement madérisé, le fruit est toujours présent mais confère davantage l’impression de noyau plutôt que de chaire. Pur nectar en bouche, mielleux, douceur sucrée sous une acidité adoucie à travers des années de garde. Les saveurs de ce divins nectars restent en nous pour l’éternité. Délirium Café, Voyage Europe Avril 2005. Merci Joël pécheur!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2005
Dark reddish brown with a light violet bubbly foam. Fresh natural aroma of raspberries, lingonberries and wet grass. Well-balanced flavour of rasåberries, linginberries and wood. Fruity and a bit tart aftertaste of lingonberries and grass. Quite good "framboise".
