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.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Hazy deep brownish-red color with a very small off-white head. The aroma was full of raspberries, freshly cut grass, tart lemonade powder, and some dirt. The flavor was very tart up front, but soon was dominated by lush raspberries, grass, and lemon. Wonderful crisp, light feel...very refreshing...semi-dry finish.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2004
This was a 1997 bottle drank with Kimchee, Martint, tiggmtl and Oakes. It pours darker than I expected, a rather deep brown, dirty soil alike with barely no head, but lots of flaoties. Aroma is very leafy with raspberry "coulis" notes, like you’d put over a good ice cream. Hints of old books, dirt and earth. In mouth, acidity level is disappointingly low, it’s earthy with raspberry grains flavors, but ultimately just too sweet to be enjoyable. mouthfeel is thin-medium with moderate carbonation. Cloying finish with more of the leafy aspect.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2004
Strong, sweet raspberry dessert aroma. Fairly, clear reddish brown with pink-brown head that diminishes quickly and completely. Very sweet raspberry, sugar and cream flavours with a gentle pull of tartness around the tongue. Body is light. Carbonation very low. Very tasty dessert-like liqueur but not a lot of lambic character. (Bottle - green - 1997 vintage - enjoyed with MartinT, mr_kimchee, Oakes and Rastacouere).

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - APR 27, 2004
Deep red body with a thin, effervescent head that "poof" vanishes. Nose is cidery, with definite bitter cherry tartness and fruity bouquet. Thin body, tart, pungently sour with great cherry flavor. I do like this Boon offering.

MrDick (346) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 15, 2004
1997 Pours a leathery brown color. Aroma of tart fruit. The first sip is a bit unsettling as it's much more sour than expected but not too unpleasant. Strong fruit flavors of cherry and rhubarb. A slight bit of earthy textures.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - MAR 22, 2004
bottled: pours brown with a pinkish-red hue with some haziness to it. head is tan pink. the nose is unmistakeable...framboise with hints of earthy dustiness. when it hits your tongue you shut up like a excited turtle. tartness is quite powerful then you start to encounter the raspberries and they are strong and in your face...rather clean ending. with a nice bubbley character on the palate. this one definately needed to cellar a bit more, to get a more complex flavor, the raspberries were predominant here. the women love this, gotta try it again in an earlier vintage or after a cellar it for a few years.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2011 2011-05-13, Vintage 2000, 11 years old, 75cl corked bottle, as Boon Framboise Marriage Parfait, 6.2% ABV, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Explosive bottle (by chance the cork doesn’t damage anything); it pours a clear red-amber color, while the generous head is compact and persistent, and has just a shade of pink. The fruity aroma is strong and evident, it reminds mostly of raspberry ice-cream. The carbonation is very high, as expected; therefore the mouthfeel is somehow smooth; the raspberry juice is more evident than the base lambic, although there is a nice degree of sourness it seems to come from the fruits mostly. Balanced and very enjoyable; not unique but elegant.

Hazy amber-ruby color. Clear aroma of raspberries and flowers. The taste is fruity, medium sourness, some astringency, some sugars, some tannins. The final is balanced. An elegant brew.

2004-02-29, Vintage 1997, 7 years old, 75cl corked bottle, as Boon Framboise, 6.2% ABV, 9-4-8-4-16=41
Copper color; persistent perlage. Wonderful aroma of wood, cask, cork, white pepper, light vinegar. Good mix of sugars with the sourness, tart; smooth (the age!), with a delicate fruitness, raspberries. Perfect balance!

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 29, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2004 Sweet raspberry aroma with some yeastiness. Good red color -- very clear. Very much a lambic, but the tartness was rather strong for me. The aftertaste was decidedly bitter.
