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.

Beer5000 (6027) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 750 ml bottle @ Kristiansand Lambic festival. Aged for 7 years. Hazy red/orange body with a huge pink head. Moderate but very pleasant sweet, fruity and a bit ripe aroma. Flavor is moderate sweet with balanced acid. Fruity, but not particular raspberry. More a general berry fruitiness. Well matured, pleasant with a nice sourness in the finish.

Sweet raspberry smell. Not as tart as the Lindemans, which I like and dont at the same time. Nice funk and great refreshment.

Bottle. Aroma of crushed raspberries and a hint of sourness. Pours murky light red. Dry raspberries on the palate. A hint of sourness. Lively carbonation. Could stand to have a tad more fruit influence.

Well this beer style is not my style but very very fruity indeed. This is much taste like sweet fruit wines i tasted in Şirince. Strange for a beer but really sweet and fruity, like mouintoin fruits.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUL 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy strawberry colour with a thin white head that lasts well and laces. Nose is sour but not predominantly raspberry, some hay and some apple and citrus. Mouth is raspberry sweet, with an initial sour attack, then some cider vinegar aftertones. A big gulp reveals more fruit and some grassy tones, but not as big as the flavour probbaly should be. Vinegar fades to leave a nice lasting sweetness, and a bit of a fizzy palate. Quite good.

Vintage 2004, bottle from Luvians, St Andrews. Pours dark pink-cerise colour, thin white head. Complex nose, raspberry (obviously), sherbert, oak, pugent tanginess. Initially in the mouth, tart, tangy, then wow, fruit, lots of that raspberry, reminds me of Marks and Spencer Panna Cotta (thatll only mean something to UK folk). Cream, double creamy raspberry. Palate is slightly too carbonated, sweet finish, but some tanginess still hinting away. Excellent.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy red/amber with a moderate white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of barnyard, acidity, and some raspberry. Taste is an excellent mixture of sweet and sour raspberries. Medium thin mouthfeel that finishes dry and not to sour. Delicious.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2010 Bottle 75 cl Vintage 1995. Previous known entry as "Boon Framboise Mariage Parfait" at 6.2% ABV.
200 grams of cherries for every liter leaves its mark: nice pink colour with a white head, almost clear. Extremely fruity, berry-like nose. Perfectly balanced between the sweet and sour. Sometimes framboises can be an overly cloying affair, but never here. 040799

Bottle 37,5 cl Courtesy of Grovlam. Hazy reddish with an off-white head. Very fruity raspberry aroma. Medium body, sweetnsour notes with a very distinct raspberry flavour propelled by a fresh, light sourness. 7/2/7/3/13=3.2 290607

yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2010 Bottle at Kbenhavnske ldage. 5% ABV. Orange, almost clear body with a small, pinkish white head. Raspberries, sweetness and sour notes in the aroma. The flavoris a bit boring and weak, yet quite good, with raspberries, sweetness and sourness. Weak, tart mouthfeel. I think its too sweet, but definately drinkable. Rating: 6-3-7-3-14-3.3. 070512

Bottle, 75cl corked, vintage 2004, 6.2% ABV, the beer formerly known as Framboise Mariage Parfait. A hazy, reddish copper colored beer topped by a small white head. Berries, notes of almod and a pleasant funk level in the aroma. The flavor is mostly raspberries, but also a bit candyish. Some almond flavors, and a little touch of barnyard and sourness. Tart, medium body. Berries dominates the finish. A smooth beer, almost too easy drinkable. 100115

6/9/07: Sample at Columbus Ale Fest 07.
OMG, this is a good beer. Aroma of barnyard and raspberries fresh raspberries that is. Body is also raspberry coloured. Sour-sweet and de-lish. Flavors remind me of a raspberry ganache that would be used for a wedding cake.
