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.

Smells very much of Raspberries and really quite sweet. However, taste a lot dryer and far less sweet. Not my favourite framboise, but very good example never the less.

37,5 cl bottle, served in flute glass. Poured clear red with a pink two finger head. Lively carbonation. Aroma: Raspberries, cherries, funk, vanilla. Taste: Raspberries, tart, funk, cherries, earth, grapes. Mouthfeel is light tart raspberries. More sweet than sour. Medium body with a fruity, light tart finish. Enjoyed this sweet, fruity refreshing brew very much. Ideal for these summer days...

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

Velquex (84) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 26, 2016
[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.

Pours hazy red with a thin white head. The aroma contains raspberries, cranberries, vanilla and wood. It tastes light fruity sweet and medium sour. Acidic aftertaste and dry finish, light body.

Lele (423) - Padova, ITALY - JUL 13, 2016
ASPETTO: tra viola e fucsia, limpido, schiuma rosacea, abbastanza abbondante, fine ma non particolarmente persistente. AROMA: forte aroma di lampone, con un retro marcato da lambic. GUSTO: in bocca non decolla affatto. Si sente molto il lampone, un lampone acido, ma il sapore non è ben legato a quello del lambic, per cui si avverte anche una sorta di marcio che stona molto.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Mooi helderrood bier met babyroze schuimkraag. Vineus aroma, ruikt als een goede wijn. Lekker zoet maar zeker niet té zoet. Confituur, framboos, snoepjes. Afdronk beetje droog met héél klein zuurtje. Lekker !!
