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.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2011 My first fruit lambic!! Bottle, 37.5 cl. Deep red color, with a small pink head. The immediate aroma is fresh raspberries wrapped in sweet caramel-ish aromas. Sweet lambic jesus this smells good! In my mouth the body is medium to full, Iíd say. Flavor is very much like the aroma, with wonderful fresh raspberries with delightful notes of caramel, slightly sour, but with sweet edges. Quickly, as I swallow, the expected sourness really comes through, refreshing and very very very pleasant! The sourness continues into the finish, leaving my mouth full of raspberry flavors, tartness and sour goodness! Wow. There are other flavors here besides the raspberry, but Iím not sure what they are, since Iím relatively new to the world of sour ales, but the raspberry flavors definitely dominate. The stuff in the background makes me think of a barnyard and such, but itís very faint. Also, hints of lemon.

Overall: I think this is just spectacular! And itís probably not even the best fruit/raspberry lambic out there! Wow!

Sampled at Beertemple. Clear red pour with a light pink head. Smells like a sweet raspberry syrup. The taste is dominated by raspberries. A bit too light bodied and sweet.

solidfunk (7003) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Great initial smell of raspberry but has a surprisingly light finish. Ruby pour with good pink head and lacing. Some light citrus. Light tang on finish but generally a little empty. Light palate. Bottle from 2013.

minutemat (3841) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours deep blood red with pinkish head. Aroma is bright raspberry pips and berry pulp. Taste is wonderfully fruity with a smooth, oily mouthfeel, very lightly carbonated. Sourness seems restrained, wouldíve liked more of an edge to this, but itís refreshing and fruity, if a little too slick.

A sweet raspberry aroma, the taste is the same, but it feels a little light in the mouth. Gluggable .

GTAEgeek (1843) - 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.
