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.

Demise (57) - Wellington, - FEB 13, 2009
Pours a cloudy pinkish brown with red hues and a white head. Smells strongly of raspberries, slightly sour. The flavour is also very sour, but not necessarily in a bad way. It is a very carbonated beer and raspberries dominate, as expected, but there is a touch of malt and an odd metallic taste near the finish - this could be the alcohol flavour mixing with the fruit. Although I am a fan of sour flavours when it comes to lambics, this could benefit from a touch of sweetness, perhaps just to mellow the intensity of flavour. On saying that hwever, the palate is left with a lingering berry sweetness that begs for another sip.

nerdboy19 (135) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 18, 2016
Frankly, I like this beer more than Cantillon Framboise(Rose de Gambrinus). Very fruity raspberry aroma, and taste. Sour, fruity, balanced, great!

Bottle at home. Pours ruby red with pinkish head. Aroma of raspberries, flowers, effervescent powder. Taste fruity-sour, dry with some sweetness. Watery-fresh with a lot of raspberry.

Linkiewitz (78) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 4, 2016
AROMAT: Dojrzałe maliny, leżakowane wino. WYGLĄD: Malinowe, klarowne; z szybko opadającą pianą. SMAK: Kwasek! Bardzo przyjemny, o smaku (uwaga) malin. Słodyczy nie ma, o pewnej wytrawności można mówić, ale przez przesady. Ogólnie bez wad, bez alkoholu, z wysokim wysyceniem i bez goryczki. Reasumując - dobre, ale niczego nie urywa. PS - butelka Anno Domini 2012

At home, bottle dated 2013. Lekker frambozensmaakje, limonadeachtig met maar een licht zuurtje, had wel pittiger gemogen. Wel heerlijk fruitsapje dit! Backlog from 2015/10/18.
