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.

flemdawg (558) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Ruby red body with a very small ring of pinkish bubbles around the edge of the glass. A sour raspberry aroma mixed with just a hint of maybe honey sweetness. Sour, raspberry, hints of bitterness, barnyard grassy, and all kinds of other flavors my vocabulary can’t describe. Delicious.

GTAEgeek (1790) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2016
750 mL bottle. Slightly hazy purple color, with a small, pinkish head. The nose is brilliant raspberry, some yogurt and light lacto funk, cheerios, and lemon zest. Sweet and very fruity, with a smooth, easy tartness. Light body, champagne bubbles, silky, and crisp. This is a nice, super fruity lambic, with good, mellow funk. Not very complex or aggressive, but easy and tasty.

Ruby red colour. Thin white head. Raspberry jam in the aroma. Raspberries at first. Sweetness. Raspberries again. Quite sweet in the end. Raspberry taste comes out nicely, but there is no complexity. Too sweet.

willisread (2018) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 26, 2016
2013 vintage bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a dark berry color with sparse carbonation bubbles and almost no head. Big raspberry aromas with cherry and light blackberry notes. Kind of dry on the palate, lots of berry notes. Not sweet but not bone-dry. Carbonation is fading, but still tasty. some light mint on the finish. Good fruitiness.

milo91hd (187) - Lecce, ITALY - MAR 26, 2016
Bottiglia 2013, colore rosso rubino con una schiuma rosa poco persistente, ovviamente nell’aroma la fanno da padrone i lamponi, al palato è molto bilanciata con un finale dolce e fruttato. Ottima.
