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.

SHIG (4956) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle (2005): Poured a murky red with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet raspberry. Taste is somewhat sour raspberry, not overwhelming but leaves a nice berry on the tongue.

Pours red/amber with fast fading head. Reaks of raspberries and syrup. Mouthfeel is sweet and dry, more like a cider. I actually tried this next to a non-alcoholic cider and it was pretty close with the expception of less sweetness and the dryness. The wife really enjoyed this one and I was surprised by how much I liked it. A nice balance of sweet and dry.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, medium ruby-pink color; thin, light pink head with solid lacing. Funky, webby aroma showing tart raspberries and horseblanket; reasonably funky with a slightly syrupy fruit character underneath. The mouthfeel is significantly sweeter than the aroma suggests: lots of raspberry and strawberry juice, some tart citrus showing through, some funk and a bit of breadiness / sugary warmth; a bit fizzy. Medium finish, showing raspberry juice and funk and zesty citrus.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2010 Clear, dark amber body with a medium-sized white head with a slight pink tint. Sour raspberry nose with cotton candy, light horseblanket and pineapple. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly sour with lots of raspberries, cheese, melon and citrus rind. Medium body is round with moderate carbonation. Finiish is long and tart with a pithy bitterness.

Boon Framboise Mariage Parfait version. Pre-GTMW tasting @ 1FastSTi’s place. 2000 vintage. Brown with reddish tint and a pinkish head. The aroma is fresh raspberries, horsey and light cheese. The flavor is lightly sweet, tart raspberries and cheese. The mouthfeel is light and lively. 9/4/8/4/16 = 4.1

bhensonb (15094) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 18, 2008
335 ml bottle. BBE 04.06.2011. Sour raspberry aroma. Ruby mahogany color with some coarse pinkish head. Near medium body with sweet and sour raspberry flavors. Tart and sweet. Almost like a dairy product in flavor. Finishes dry and fruity, with a little sour that goes on. Interesting stuff.

3.3
Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - MAR 16, 2008
Poured fizzy with plenty of carbonation. Real raspberry flavors, intense, not too acidic, well balanced, nice yeast.

ghawener (1607) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - MAR 16, 2008
Thanks to Ramenen. Bottle: Great fruity , sweet aroma. Body a wine like with a nice astringent cleansing. Refreshing.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2008
Red amber, big head, lots of carbonation. Lots of (overly) ripe rasberrys. Some acidity but always balanced up with lots of sugary sweetness. Some tartness. Not as good as the kriek from Boon.

LilBeerDoctor (3904) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Bottle. Poured reddish brown, with some dark black yeast. The best thing about this beer was its aroma--very sweet with raspberry, reminded me of a Lindemann’s Framboise. The flavor was less good, sort of watery and raspberry. Slight tartness. Overall, an ok lambic but certainly not my favorite.

3.3
fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Bottle 2007. Nice aroma of raspberries, funk, some other tart and sour fruit. Flavor a bit light, sometimes allowing the raspberries to shine through, sometimes offering other light fruit notes of mango and banana, but not terribly strong in the way of funk and not terribly interesting in terms of any sweet, tart, or sour way. Instead sort of a weird, watery funk prevailed. Largely light in palate too with this watery aspect. Pretty disappointed, but not a bad beer.
