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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Ruby, creamy head and spotty lacing. Itís got the sour barnyard funkiness in the nose. Raspberries. Thanks to JagerQueen, aside from the raspberries and funk, all Iím tasting is mustard!

JagerQueen (123) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Pours a light reddish pink color, a little purple in hue. Light pink lacing and head. Aroma is musky, very raspberry and the slight mustardy sense that joins the framboise. Taste is very sweet, a little tart, sharp, musky, raspberries and vanilla. Pretty typical for a good framboise, better as it warms.

a good raspberry outing from boon here. i think that maybe..even contrary to my personal belief that i woul like them...iím not a huge fan of fruit beers. but this one seemed to go down pretty easy with a nice aftertaste. one of my favorite to date. agian not something iíd go out and buy for the night but a good experience to have in the fruit beer region.

skortila (4505) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2004
Sweet, fruity, raspberry aroma. Clear, red coloured with a short pink head. Fruity (raspberry) taste, quite sweet and more sour/bitter in the finish. Dry beer. not really interesting.

Best by Sept 17 2006 - Pours a dark ruby with a large light maroon head that quickly collapses. The aroma is tart raspberries, sugar, as well as hints of barnyard. The flavor is light raspberries up fron then some acid and sweetness kick in, bringin ti all to a close is an envelope of fruit tartness. Body is medium-light and it goes down easy. A very drinkable lambic and a likely candidate for a "starter" lambic. Not nearly as funky as others and as a result just a little more simple and not quite as good. Still it is a highly drinkable and enjoyable beer.

I love gueuze but normally just the gueuze lambic or kriek lambic. Other fruits donít do it for me. But! This one is an exeption. Nice aroma consisting of raspberry, oak and tart. Pink/redish colour, nice head. Not too sweet, raspberry flavor, smooth, some sourness. Finishes off quickly leaving some sourness behind.

Bottle. This is the beer that my wife and I toasted with at our wedding! Big raspberry and oak in the nose. First thing that hits your tongue is tart rasberries and lemon with a earthy background. Very drinkable. Great celebration beer.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2004
(1997 bottle in 2004): The sweetness of raspberries permeates the beerís fragrance as prickly funk slowly seeps from beneath...Acidity tries to take control at first but stops short of enjoyment and is overtaken by brown sugar...If midnight is sweetness and noon acidity, this is a minute or so before sunrise...Thanks Josh!...
