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.

The commercial description for this reads, in part, "This beer has a real sour fruit taste just like crushed fruit..." Mayhaps that explains the problem that I have in understanding fruit lambics, particularly the framboise. The raspberries that I eat aren’t sour. When fresh, they’re quite sweet, perhaps with a bit of a sweet/sour nip at the finish. But they’re sweet overall. Now I drink a brew that tastes like a raspberry soda gone bad. It’s not unpleasant, but what’s the attraction? It’s got a nice ruby color, a thin white head, the aroma of a Sweet Tart candy, and the taste of sour raspberries. Personally, I feel a fruit juice would be as refreshing... although it doesn’t have a 5% abv, I’ll grant you.

i am very new to the lambic style so my rating my not be up to par,but here goes. this lambic gave me an appearance much like a nice iced tea.the aroma contained rasberry and that sour lambic signature.i expected a bit more rasberry in the flavor due to the taste.most of what i got was a sourness and some carbonation,with the fruit hidden in the back.pretty good stuff but i like a bit more fruit in my lambics.

Cloudy, red, no head. Raspberry aroma. Taste is sour raspberries. Lightly carbonated, medium body. Good sweet/tart balance. Very drinkable and thirst quenching. Good stuff.

heemer77 (5187) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 6, 2005
Dark red and amber color with a large white head. The aroma is as expected, raspberries and some dry funky barnyard. A fairly tame aroma for a lambic, though. The taste is fruitier than I expected. The raspberries are almost overwhelming. While the funky barnyard is certainly in the background, it isn’t overwhelming by any means. Almost too sweet. Has an interesting dry finish I haven’t experienced before.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2004
(2002 crop, sampled 12/2004) Deep orangeish red color with a small, off-white head and lots of large, almost static yeast particles. Sweetish, not very strong, raspberry aroma with some sour cherry hints. Sweetish raspberry flavor at first, but quickly turns sourish and oaky, then back to sugary again towards the finish. Medium-bodied, slightly sugary palate with fizzy carbonation. Sticks to teeth. A decently enjoyable, not overly sweetened lambic.

Red/cherry color, quite small head. Sweetish rapsberry aroma. Flavor brings raspberry as well, but now in a more sourish way. Some sweeter notes in the finish. Nice body.
