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.

beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2009
Pours a murky dark red color with lots of floaties and a medium pinkish white head. The aroma has raspberries and tartness. The flavor is slightly tart and there’s of course raspberries, I would have liked some funk, but didn’t find any. The body is light to medium with low carbonation. Not bad, but not impressive at all.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2009
Bottle 2004, traded with hallinghansen. Pours an hazy ruby colour with a long lasting reddish head. Aroma is fresh sweet raspberries with a slight sour touch. The flavour is dry raspberries with a nice sour kick and a dim sweetness in the back. I miss some cellar like and dusty flavours but quite good anyway.

Bottle 2004 edition. Hazy reddish body with a small pink head. Nice aroma of light sour raspberry and light acid. The flavour is pure sour raspberry. Very refreshing and tastefull. Lovely soft and smooth body. Great Lambic.

Bottle. Pours pink with a medium pink head. Aroma is raspberry and acid. Flavour is the same. Its very pleasant and I guess this would be even better cellared for a couple of years.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2009
750 ml bottle, 1997. Clear purple brown with a ring of white foam. Nose is raspberry jam and mousse with touches of honey and cider vinegar. Juicy and mouth watering with faint pricks of carb. Taste is raspberry, plum, strawberry and vanilla yoghurt. Soft and sweet with light tartness. Maybe a bit faded but still delicious.

Parket (586) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2009
37.5 cl bottle, dark red colour and a bit pink not stable head. Raspberry smell (what you could expect from a framboise) and a bit sour smell in the nose. I could not let it ripe in the cellar because I was too curieus to taste it. Taste: sour, raspberries with their typical sharpness, sweet, red berries. I think this is a good lambic but not a real topper.

VertBaconStrips (2402) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JUN 23, 2009
2005 Vintage, no expiry shown. Poured out a small whitish head that had some retention and leaves some spotty lacing. Kind of an orangy reddish brown - definetly not a colour that catches your eye. The aroma is totally different than the Lindemans I had two days ago. This one has it’s raspberries but they are not oversweet or potent - they come across softer and do not seem fresh picked and some blackberries. There is also some leather and some other odd off-smelling odor. The taste is a very sharp, blunt, watery sourness - very sour indeed. The raspberry is there but the sourness has overpowered it. Very very tart. This is the total opposite of Lindemans (which I also have in a glass for comparrision). Short sour finish that does fade in strength. Wacky. I think I’ll get another one that’s younger and give it another shot.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2010 2003 bottle, best before January 2009. Almost clear, orangey amber with a lasting white head. Juicy sweet raspberry aroma with a dusty wooden note. Sweet and sour raspberry and malt flavour.

EBF 2008, thanks Jacob! Cloudy amber with a small white head. Strong raspberry aroma with some funk. Sweetish and funky berry flavour

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2009
Very pretty looking beer, dark opaque strawberry red, I was disappointed that zero head was produced not even a single bubble was floating on top of the beer however there was lots carbonation bubbling up from the bottom of the glass. The aroma was all natural smelling raspberries, very pleasant aroma however it was fairly mild, it could have been more aggressive for my liking. The taste reminded me of sparkling alcohol free fruit juice you give to your little cousins at Christmas. Mostly sour raspberries in the flavor that left a good tart after taste, this could have used more of a beer flavor for me almost no malt or yeast could be detected. Ok tasting, not artificial or insanely sweet but nothing I’ll ever go out of my way to try again."

Sweet, a little bitter, low body. Not as hearty or fulfilling as Lindeman’s Bottle at Total Wine, Ft. Lauderdale.

Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle 2004 Vintage, have had this bottle a couple of years unsure where I picked it up, possibly Dranken Geers or Noel Cuviers There are times when having the right beer at the right time make for quite an unforgettable experience. I had a moment like this with Westvleteren 12 in The Kulminator a beer that I’d had before many years back but never rated, it really was quite magical in the Kulminator. There was also the mighty Kaggen on New Years Eve a year or two ago, fantastic! It’s quite difficult to see how drinking Boon Framboise Mariage Parfait whilst cooking ’Tagine Bil Kok’ (tagine of lamb with prunes) down the garden by the raspberry canes on a wonderfully sunny Saturday evening in late May could compare to one of those right time, right place moments for a beer, but it did. The pour was a pinky brown, sometimes looking like old blood in a certain light, it was also a little hazy, the head was light pink a and fluffy. The aroma was pure raspberry jam, soft and squidy raspberries abound on the nose, its a fruit laden corker of an aroma. The taste is simply sumptious, its slightly tart at first but it no way is this sharp, its just so well done those ripe raspberries are soft in the mouth carbonation is fantastic. This is just so refreshing, I simply cannot believe how good this beer is and offer some to Loz to try, Loz is equally stunned into silence. The alcohol in this is just right it offers just the right sort of platform for those juicy flavour’s to flood through. I sip again and those raspberries explode on the tongue, I am so chuffed that this is a 750ml bottle. This isn’t too sweet or too sharp it really is just perfect in my eye’s, you can taste those rapberries, seeds spilling over the lip, wonderful stuff, absolutely wonderful. Gotta get some more!
