COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Raspberry lambic was once a rarity and only produced for a few weeks during the summer. Frank Boon was the first brewer to again prepare a raspberry lambic in the summer of 1976. More than 300 grams per liter of fresh raspberries give Framboise Boon a fresh fruity taste. The young lambic supports the flavor. But this is very much about raspberries, not the lambic. Of course we do not use artificial flavorings, only real raspberries. Boon Framboise has an alcohol volume of 5%. Drink it when it is young.

Amber/red with a small fizzy head. Raspberry aroma with some wheat and apple cider. Taste is sour and raspberries with a tart finish. Easy and light carbonation with the medium body. Very easy drinking. Very good but nothing really exciting.

Purchased this for my wife, the Lambic lover, whoís sole taste revolved around the Lindemans label. However, the light fruits and actual "bits oí fruit" screamed au-natural. Slight buttery "jammy" aroma, light sweetness, visually quite cloudy, but not as dark as other lambics drank. I think this pairs well with certain blander foods, maybe a white chicken dish or pork. I could see this as a desert drink, but not with any chocolate. (Ah, hah, after sampling the second glass from the bottle, which was darker in appearance... raspberry vigarette scent memory!)

iím a big fan of the kriek boon, so i was looking forward to trying this one. it didnít disappoint, but neither was it in the same category of excellent delicious lambics that the kriek epitomises. or something.

Semi-hazy cherrywood amber color with a thin, white head that dissipates quickly, but evenly. Plenty of fresh raspberries in the nose; also a touch of vinegary sourness that is so common to this genre of beer. Aromas are genuine and pleasing - not artificial like many lambics. Acidicy isnít overpowering; the raspberry flavors dominate and finish with a nice oily residue on the tongue. After a couple of minutes the residue begins to taste a bit like envelope glue, but not necessarily in a bad way. This is a very nice, fresh, organic tasting lambic.

Boon Framboise is an excellent beer. This is one of the more authentic tasting lambics that has not been sweetened to appeal to a wider audience. This beer has a very sour refreshing edge, and some real vinous character. Boon Framboise pours to a beautiful, bright pink color with a thick white head, and a very lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is very complex. Aromas of oak, raspberry, and yeast flood the nose. The palate is firm with tart wheat flavors, notes of raspberry, and oak. This beer finishes with more slightly sweet berry flavors and a crisp, refreshing, sour edge. This beer is a wonderful aperitif, and also works extremely well as a desert beer. Framboise also works very well as an ingredient in dishes. I would have this beer as an aperitif, or match it with a desert such as a raspberry tart, or perhaps raspberry cheese cake.

@highlandladís from duff: this was quite a shock after drinking a rosť de gambrinus straight before. smell is entirely raspberry. nothing else. nice in its way. i like the smell of raspberries. in the mouth itís sweet raspberry cordial with a pleasant light fizziness, finishing with a mild tannic, overstewed tea flavour. not much actual sourness to speak of, but it is quite dry, which saves it. a pleasant drink - maybe a nice marinade for something.

not as sour or funky as i hoped, but the raspberry aroma is huge and 3D, like bruised, slimy raspberries about to start fermenting by themselves. flavourwise it's mainly our friend the raspberry, with only a slight amount of socks, but lots of quinine in the finish. not exactly too sweet, but a bit tame.

Dark red color, little pink head. Strongly sour and sweet aroma, mild raspberry too. Sour, mildly sweet and cherry flavor. Aftertaste lasts with sourness. Nice and finely balanced lambic.

poured out an almost greyish purple color, with small light lavender head that dissipated very quickly. had a very light taste as well as a little tart. had a bit more of a alcohol taste compared to other fruit lambics. nothing compared to lindemanís raspberry lambic.

Bottle. Red light color with a pink head. Very sweet almost cidery taste. Slight sour finish of raspberry. Smooth and light going down.
