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.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Brown cloudy ale, color of oxidized berries. No real head, no real lacing. Nose of lambic with sweet floral fruit. Taste is more complex than many sweet fruit lambics, since the sweet berries are not added in quantities that hides either the sourness of the lambic or the bitterness of the ale. Some bready wheat tastes there as well. Good long finish of sweet fruit, sourness, and bitterness. I don't love it, but it is a good compromise between dessert beers like Lindeman's and undrinkably funky lambics.

Lively, excellent raspberry aroma and flavor. Slightly sour, a bit sweet. Good drinkable framboise.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2003
Deep raspberry aromas. Hazy, deep ruby color. A little watered down, but there are some sour and fruity notes as the description states.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Light pinkish in color. Fantastic raspberry aroma. Very very very sour and lacking in the sweet side of things. A metallic aftertaste that ruined the experience for me.

caesar (5396) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2003
Cloudy pink color, small head. Tart raspberry aroma. Quite good raspberry lambic, but those lambic-fruits will never be my favorite style i guess.

jerohen (2044) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2003
1997 version in 2003. Cloudy red-coloured, not much head. Fruity aroma of course, pretty sour. Sour flavour as well, bit malty, obvious raspberry, bit yeasty with some sweetness. Fairly complex. The ABV isn't even very high, but somehow this one forced you to drink it slowly. Overall, it takes a little getting used to, but it's a decent brew.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2003
A reddish tinged light amber with a small white head that quickly pops away. Aroma is of wild raspberries and musty barn wood on a hot summer day just after a thunderstorm. Wonderful sour raspberry flavor, very sour. Mouthwatering dryness. Lack of carbonation makes the alcohol effect more wine like. 1995 Bottle. Excellent.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - MAY 17, 2003
deep pink red beer with a foamy short lived pink head. strong raspberry aroma. as rexpected taste is sweet but the dominant dflavor id fruit not sugar. some residual tartness from the lambic. great bubbly palate makes this a light refreshing beverage very nice but could more tartness.

Think pink head, disappearing; deep red-pink beer. Raspberry and raspberry-syrup; something smokey. Taste is sweet like raspberry-coulis. Retronasal there is lambic AND fruit acids, indeed. Mouthfeel is tingling and refreshing. Big fruity aftertaste, no new tastes. If the lambic character were just that little more outspoken, I'd love it.
