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.

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, Id 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 Im not sure what they are, since Im 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 its very faint. Also, hints of lemon.

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

Blueshawk (82) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- braun-rtliche Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - durchdringende Aromen nach Himbeeren mit einem leicht suerlichen Touch - perfekte, schn moussierende Carbonisierung - wunderbar erfrischender Geschmack nach reifen Himbeeren - die suerliche Note prickelt angenehm auf der Zunge - im Abgang kommt noch eine interessante leichte Bitternis hinzu Fazit: Ein absolutes Hammer-Lambic

Velquex (73) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 26, 2016
[Butelka] Wygląd: Czerwone, z rżową 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.

Lele (408) - 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 ben legato a quello del lambic, per cui si avverte anche una sorta di marcio che stona molto.

mariuspoenari (1425) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2016
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.
