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.

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.

After the medium sized head died down, you might look at the deep cherry red colored body and mistake it for wine. Sweet and raspberry aromas. Body is smoothly carbonated, full of tart and sweet raspberry - not as sweet as some of this style. Ended dry, maybe some oaky notes, some funk around the edges - cool!

Bottle. Nice lambic. Sourish aroma but not overwhelmingly sour. Bits of fruit sneek out. Flavor is just hugely sour and tart. Very nice indeed.

The raspberry was everywhere. Full bodied and sweet/tart. The malt played a perfect supporting role.

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2004
Bottle at the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Nice orangey rose colour, with a faintly sour aroma. Earthy, fruit taste, and a hint of sourness that balances the sweetness well. I love Framboise generally and this is top stuff, served in a nice champagne flute.

jtw (1142) - farmington, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2004
dark red-amber, little bit of carbonation. smells like stale raspberries, some leather. tastes like tart raspberries with dusty musty finish. not as sweet as lindeman’s but not quite a hardcore lambic. interesting at least....

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2004
Bottle: Poured a deep red colored beer with a medium head with average retention for a lambic. Aroma is comprised solely of raspberry. Taste is also dominated by raspberry with a little tart and sour ending. This one is a guilty pleasure for me since I know it taste more like fresh raspberry juice then beer but I like it nonetheless. Very refreshing, I could drink a lot of this.

Very sweet raspberry aroma, quite nice. Deep red body with a small tan head. Good sourness, with a nice element of raspberries.
