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.

badgerben (5013) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2008
BDR, I am so sorry you opened this gem early... on the other hand, I thank you for being in your presence. Murky brown color with a thin head. Aroma of raspberry jam that was made about 30 seconds ago. Strong, very strong raspberry flavor. Incredibly thick. Lightly tart and some wheat. Not sour at all. Delicious.

Dark red color with no head. Slight raspberry aroma. Crushingly sour taste with bone dry raspberries. Definitely an example that is lambic first, fruit second.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 28, 2008
21/11 0.375 l bottle, vintage 2005, at Hopdevil, Zagreb. It poured red, slightly murky body with some particles floating inside. No real head, just somewhat near glass edges. Nice raspberry aroma, really pleasant and natural, but no beer felt. On the other side, flavor is nice lambic, with raspberry being just a nice background. Sourish, with vinous character and very refreshing. Very pleasant, just like its sweetish finish which is quite long due to typical fizzy carbonation for this style. Very well made fruit lambic!

my head bloody hurts. This is why I generally leave my rarest beers 800 miles away - one bad day and I start sessioning stuff that I’d rather share at a tasting... In any event, a very nice fruit lambic. Not as tart as the regular boon’s but quite nice. In fact, this 2004 bottle had an incredible aroma of fresh raspberry jam with a faint sourness to it. Sweet fresh raspberry jam flavor that was incredible, if sweet.

Wonderful raspberry nose with faint earthiness to it. Slightly sour with lots of raspberry and a decent finish. Nice pink body with massive pinkish head.

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2008
(2007, BBE 02.06.2012, tasted 10/2008) Stunning red, practically no head. Smells only of raspberry, quite fresh raspberry, actually. Flavor has raspberry juice all over it, just a little hint of sourness. Not overly sweet.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
2005 bottle courtesy of Jerc and Mabel, shared with them. Ruby red / copper, small bubbly head. Fruity aroma, sour, tart. Good taste - more fruitiness, hint of sourness. Refreshing. Simple but good.
Earlier Rating: 7/2/2006 Total Score: 4.2
1997 Vintage, shared with a great crew on Canada Day. Dark brown, still head. Really nice musty berry aroma - amazing. Incredible taste - all musty malt, vinegar, sourness, lots of berries that tasted fresh, not nine years old, Almost of berry seed like bitterness. Lovely linger of berries. Complex, yet instantly drinkable, this has aged very well and was a pleasure to drink.

[1701-20080912] 375mL bottle. Raspberry and cherry notes in the aroma. Murky, dark brown body with a quick foamy white head. Fruity raspberry and berry berry and leaf notes in the flavour. Medium body. Nice and fruity, refreshing.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2008
A nice and successful combination of fresh fruits with a Lambic. A pleasure to drink, although I wouldn’t have it every day, it’s too special.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2008
Bottle from Phil_L and beermerchants.com. Deep red, purple, hint of pink, like an angry penis. Thin fading head of similar colour. Nice flavour with a decent amount of souness and tart. Not bad at all, cheers!

Pour is brownish, red with a tint of peach...but very murky, head is thin off white with tint of red. Aroma is tart raspberry with hints of yeast and malts. Flavor is much of the same, nicely balanced. Palate is tart, pretty nice. Good brew

1995 Vintage bottle. Not quite as funky as I would have liked. A little sweeter with a nice raspberry flavor. Needed more sour but still very pleasant.
