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.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
July 2006, an aperitif at our garden party, and most were in awe that this was a beer. Bronze with a red hue and a huge head, that is difficult to pour without a lot of foam. The 200 grams of raspberries pr. liter beer really is known in both aroma and flavour. Its a really nice Framboise with a perfect balance between the sour and the sweet notes, and its one of the better, I have tasted.

Bronze with a red hue and a huge head. Both aroma and flavour lets you know that this is a lambic, and the balance between the berry sourness and the ditto sweetness is very nice. But Im so utterly and completely in love with Lindemans Framboise, so its difficult for any other Framboise to get the real high scores. 1528

EithCubes (5722) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Bottle, caged and corked in green glass. Sweet raspbrery nose. Purple-tinged pink pour with a pink/purple-tinged, beautiful lacing head. Taste is fruity, can almost taste the razz seeds, with a touch of mold and yeasty tang. Stronger, crisper carbonation than the kriek. Light sweetness, nowhere near cloying, with a light acidic sharpness and a touch of wood. Leathery dry aftertaste is nicer than the main course. Medium-fullish body. Well-crafted and well above average, but not superlative.

375 ml bottle, poured into tumbler. Pours red with a finger of whitish-pink head. Odor is of raspberries with a hint of the alcohol. Sweet and tart, tastes just about exactly like raspberries. A nice, sweet refreshing lambic.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Both the bottle and draught versions of Boons framboise are too sweet for me; way to sweet in fact. I like my lips to pucker when I drink lambic so this one isnt for me.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2007
An attractive dark ruby colour with a small but sustained head, the aroma was of ripe raspberries underscorred with some delicate maltiness. Medium body and quite light carbonation. Fruity sweetness on the palate, well balanced by a sharp tartness which fades nicely onto the finish.

DarkMagus (512) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Poured an appealing light red/pinkish color with a good amount of carbonation and champagne-like bubbliness. Sour, funky, candy-like aroma with a mouthwatering raspberry character and a faint mustiness. Flavors were fairly straightforward... sour candy raspberry--more sweet than sour--and some faint woody musty notes. Mouthfeel was bubbly and champagne-like with a slight acidic/dry finish. Overall this was not all that complex of a lambic... I kind of wanted more intensity and more SOURNESS... plus it was a bit on the expensive side. But good stuff nonetheless, worth trying at least once.
