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.

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)

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- braun-rötliche Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - durchdringende Aromen nach Himbeeren mit einem leicht säuerlichen Touch - perfekte, schön moussierende Carbonisierung - wunderbar erfrischender Geschmack nach reifen Himbeeren - die säuerliche Note prickelt angenehm auf der Zunge - im Abgang kommt noch eine interessante leichte Bitternis hinzu Fazit: Ein absolutes Hammer-Lambic

[Butelka] Wygląd: Czerwone, z różową niską pianą. Aromat: Wyraźne maliny, stajni nie stwierdzono. Smak: Malinowe, dość słodkie. Kwaśność jak na styl względnie niska. Podsumowanie: Trochę za mało ciała i kwasu, ale poza tym jak najbardziej na plus.
