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.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - OCT 21, 2004
tart rasberry aroma, transluscent blood red, grassy and slightly woody over a rasberry backbone with minimal tartness, I generally look for lip puckering sourness in a good lambic and this one didn’t quite stack up
Earlier Rating: 1/20/2004 Total Score: 4
smells of raspberry yogurt, reddish orange with a white head and tiny black sediment, soft dessert like raspberry reminiscient of a cupcake, woody and vinous notes as well

Again the same with this one, not too tart, and not too sweet, very nicely balanced between really rich fruit flavors and nice mellow tart bite that has some great acidity.

clear brick red color an very bubbly, this lambic has a nicely balanced flavor. Not too tart, but the flavor is on the tart side. Quite tasty

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2004
Bottle bought in Belgium. 375ml, corked, served in a Cantillon glass (close enough). Pleasent fruit lambic that isn’t sweet, has the right ammount of tartness, but isn’t overly sour, dry or acidic like Cantillon can become.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Brownish cranberry color body with low carbonation and a thin, short-lived head. Contains a few ugly chunks of sediment plus lots of finer particulates. Aroma of well-ripened raspberries, a hint of chocolate, and noticeable microbial funkiness. Flavor is less tart than anticipated, but interesting. Mature, subdued quality (to be fair, this bottle spent considerable time sitting on a shelf). Some noticeable oxidation but not overly detracting. Not an elite lambic, but decent.

jazz88 (2560) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Bottle of the 2002 vintage. A grapefruit rouge color with an off-white to pink colored foamy head. A pleasant raspberry aroma and flavor, sweet and easy to drink with only a mild sourness (more like tart fruit flavors). It lakes a challenging quality that I like to find in lambics.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Deep cloudy purplish brown with a moderate white head, aroma of wet hay, sourness, and some raspberry. Flavor is an excellent mixture of sourness and the sweetness of the raspberry. Delicious. Probably my favorite lambic at the time.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2004
Bottled. Red-ish colour. Sugary flavour along with quiet rasperry notes. A modest lambic.

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Starts with a nice head, a light pinkish color which dissipated in a hurry. The beer itself is more brown than I’ve seen in some other lambics. Grassy notes in the nose, along with the sourness expected. Sour is the predominant taste initially, though the raspberry is also prevalent. Doesn’t leave much lingering taste.

Thin head, reddish brown color...I think the "barnyard funkiness" reminds me of raw oats...then raspberry...very acidic and it did bother my acid reflux quite a bit. Then definate raspberry...I didn’t know what to make of everyone’s mustard comments, but OMG it does have a mustard quality...maybe more vinegar than horseradish though. Not too bad...
