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.

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.

tfredvik (1182) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2014
Clear, dark red body with a small, frothy, light pink head that laces the glass pretty well. Strong flavour of lightly ripe, acidic and tart raspberries, raspberries, raspberries and raspberries. Also distinct notes of cherries. The flavour mirrors the aroma. Light sweet and light to moderate acidic taste. Crisp mouthfeel, light and dry with a moderate carbonation. A very mild framboise, sure it’s tart and acidic but there’s definitely a sweetness in there as well, and I find no funky stuff that could scare off newcomers to the style..
[37.5 cl bottle, 2011 vintage, enjoyed 9 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

maekchu (2247) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle from Takatsuki AEON Mall liquor shop. Strong, fresh blast of berries, some funk. Dark reddish brown, light pink lace. Mildly tart berries in initial, some acid attack in mid, hits a good sweet-sour balance. Thin, tart, and moderately astringent. Nice all around. Not as big or overpowering as some acid blasters, but alanced and highly drinkable.

flemmingwillum (1031) - Nysted, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2014
Rating #1020, flaske fra Toft Vin. Rødbrun, mørk, næsten intet skum. Vinøs duft med masser af friske hindbær. Meget syrlig smag med masser af hindbær og en del sødme. Hint af kirsebær og træ. Medium tykkelse, skummende i munden. Ganske fin.

Mortlach (981) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 9, 2014
On tap @Mad For Beer (Rome). Rossa intensa, scura, quasi bordeaux, schiuma bianco-rosata cremosa, leggera. Al naso sentore di yougurt al lampone, non proprio finissimo. In bocca è dolciastra,zuccherosa, solo lievemente acidula sul finale, cremosa di consistenza, sembra (sembra!) volutamente edulcorata. Una delusione totale.

Bottle from supermarket. Murky red colour, pink foam. Medium carbonation. Fruity nose with a lot of raspberries. Light sourness. Some bitterness. More sweet than sour. Not very good.

Shiny, red with flat white head. Aroma is chemical raspberries, candy. Taste is balanced with raspberry, red berries and LOTS of sugar. Way too sweet.

sherm1016 (1170) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2014
375ml bottle from Discount Liquor Milwaukee. Pours a deep, reddish-brown color with no real head to speak of. Aroma is fruity, raspberry jam. Medium on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is sweet-tart, raspberry, some oak, some funk, just a hint of cereal malt, with a tart, raspberry finish.

Calisky (1028) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 2, 2014
Couleur pourpre très sombre, aucune mousse. Nez de liqueur de framboises vieilles et sucrées. Gout de liqueur de framboises, notes aigres, vieille barrique, tanniques, acidulées. Bon corps rond en bouche, aucune carbonation. Fin longue fruité liqueur de framboise. Lambik fruit ne misant pas que sur le fruité, mais quelques notes subtiles. Tout le style que j’aime.
