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.

Raspberry taste was strong, but not overpowering. I also had the 5% version.

a cheeky light fruity number with plenty of body. donít go near if you are adverse to raspberry. the sour notes hit the back of your tongue like a sledgehammer. my mates thought it was a pile of piss!

A most excellent fruity lambic. I had this just below room temperature. Slightly cloudy color, very assertive fruity/sour nose. Flavor was a good balance between fruit and lambic sourness - the latter more present in this than in say, BelleVue or La Becasse. Slightly sticky finish, but that may have been my palatte. Excellent if you donít mind the high price.

Oakes (12612) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2000
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 Golden amber colour. Complex aroma - raspberry, sugar, leather. Sweetish palate - candy, raspberry, sugar. Lacks funkiness. OK as a dessert lambic but not in the league of the great ones.

I liked this. I like lambics. THere are definitely some better ones out there though. Smooth but can definitely taste the alcohol.

My first Lambic so itís hard for me to know if this is true to style, but here goes. Aroma - Almost wine. Can definately smell the wood. Head - Quickly disapates, no lacing to speak of. Taste - Wooden but not dry. Definate raspberry taste. Overall - I really donít know. Itís complex for a beer, but I kept having this nagging voice in the back of my head saying expensive wine cooler. Iíll definately try a few more in the style. (NOTE: The version of this beer that I tried was 5%ABV. Not sure if there are two varieties, but itís worth noting)

Very tart, however quite smooth, not sweet. Just enough carbonation so that itís not flat tasting.

A bit of head retention, no lacing (seems to be true to style in that regard). Alcohol apparent in aroma with wine characteristics. Easy on the palate with a nice raspberry finish.
