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.

kepano (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Rosy-bodied and pink-topped, it’s tough to look manly with a glass of Boon’s craft in hand. Aromatically though, the fruit’s luscious intensity is about as delicate as a jackhammer. Strawberry cheesecake, grape candy, red apple and raspberry jelly; there’s pie crust and peaches, brown sugar and cookies. All this is only meagerly balanced by well-aged hops, but no matter, the variegated fruit flavors are truly inspiring. As for the flavor, imagine The Shining’s elevators spewing torrents of raspberry syrup instead of blood. Surprisingly dry, the fruit is full but not cloying and the fine carbonation adds wonderful texture to the experience. Hints of fig, browned butter, oak and black cherry, a finishing touch of blackcurrant, it’s an impressive brew. If it had further explored those sour notes of leather, this certainly would approach perfection in the realm of fruit lambics. For those outsiders who deem a pink fruit beer girly, let me again borrow from Jack Nicholson’s oeuvre and say "YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE FRUIT!" (01/07/07, 2004 bottle)

Silvan7 (676) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle @ home. aroma intenso fruttato, di frutti rossi ed ovviamente lampone in evidenza. Sottobosco, legno, vaniglia , cantina ed erbaceo da luppolo ben distinguibili. Colore rosso rubino, limpido, con schiuma rosata, poco persistente abbastanza fine. Gusto acidulo, non molto pungente, fruttato, di frutti rossi (lampone e ribes). Legno e vaniglia rendono più rotondo l’assaggio. il finale è abbastanza amaro. Ben equilibrata, non è un lambic estremo. poco spigoloso. armonico.

5.5% 750. Better than the kriek, me thinks. A little more complex than I remember the cherry being. Very fruity up front, but there’s enough of a hint of cheese and tart to keep things interesting. I love me some framboise. It had been a while..."

Bottle. Pours clear red with a red head. Aroma of rasberries and some funky, sour notes. Taste is similar to aroma, but more dry. Beer is medium bodied, quite dry. Good lambic style beer.

Nice bottle with a cork on it. Clear red colour. Not just sweet but rather balanced. Lovely fruit aroma. Not disappointing at all. Very nice one.

Een van de slechtste frambozenbieren dat ik ooit geprobeerd heb, echt niets voor mij

degbert (1104) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2014
TPSA. Pours a slightly brown-tinged red with a rose-colored, shallow head. Smells like -- well -- raspberries. REAL raspberries, none of this raspberry candy crap. Tastes like raspberries, again, the real kind, with great tartness and a slightly bitter cherry-pit overtone. The bitterness sticks around through the finish, cutting through the slight sweetness and keeping the beer from being out of balance. Elegant and excellent.

More expressive on the nose than the palate... and what a nose: sweetness abounds with raspberries dominating. Much softer on the palate, but different again if swished through teeth. Really enjoyable beer!

Bottle. Pours a clear dark red with a small white head. Aromas of raspberry, sugar, earth. Taste is very smooth raspberry tartness, slight grass.
