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.

brewgirlca (57) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2006
2005 corked bottle. Initial rush of raspberries was promiising but the robustness quickly dissipated Nice lactic notes in nose that lingered till the end. Poured a thin pink head that was quickly gone. Pretty deep rose red color. UMM, love that lactic dryness in the mouth, compliments the tartness of the fruit. Raspberry flavour is evident but needs to be bigger to balance the tartness (not sweeter, just bigger). Missing that horse-blanket earthy flavour that defines a truely excellent lambic - maybe needs to be older (their was yeast in the bottle). A great drinking Lambic after a long bike ride on a hot day. If they combined the rich fruit character of their Kriek with the lactic of this Framboise, threw in the horse-blanket wild yeasts and let it sit for a few more years before they released it they would have a truely awesome product. Far better than the sweet, fruit juice fair that has been passing for Lambic in this part of the world for the last few years

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2006
(06.15.06) 355 mL green bottle from DiCarlos, Mundelein, IL. 5% ABV. Labeled best before 9/20/08. Poured clear pink rose with with tiny white head. Good carbonation. Sour raspberry aroma. Light-to-medium bodied ale that starts semi-dry with light malt sweetness, and raspberry and spicy flavors. Some earthy tangy sourness. Not as dry and tart as the Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus but not as overly sweet as Lindemans framboise. Well-balanced. A very enjoyable and drinkable Belgium lambic, one of the best that Ive tried so far.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Aroma is very strong and loaded with raspberry, raspberry seeds, vanilla, wood and some funky sourness. Redish-orange ini color with a thin, white head. Amazing flavor, tons of raspberries. Balanced with a slightly sour, funkiness and caramel malt backbone. Sweet and sour at the same time. Lighter body with an almost creamy texture and a dry finish. Thanks Facto for opening this one up!

DuffMan (9998) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2006
This pours a deep pink with a brighter, cotton-candy-pink fizzy head. Aromas of raspberry juice and musty basement. Vinous palate, fresh raspberry juice sweetness somewhat balanced by a tartness in the finish. Too sweet for me to come back to, but more balanced than some of the other fruit lambics Ive tried.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2006
750-ml. bottle, 2000 vintage, shared by MrFacto. Translucent cherry brass in color with a beady white layer cast sparingly as the head. Raspberry kernels and tart, freeze dried cranberries impart the first aromatic implications, pursued by moderate vinaigrette and a breakfast danish trait to tartly envelop the nose. Sweet, tart and cyclical flavor shine broaches the palate with a big flavorful stream. Raspberry kernels spliced open for added tart complexity. Pomegranate kernels juicily bursting between the teeth. Supple carbonation and a sweet/tart justice that couldnt be any better balanced. Kernels coronate a cyclical syrup feel with a backdoor bitterness to keep it from keeling. Its a very tasty treat.

375ml green bottle, corked. 2005 crop. Poured red with very faint trace of head. Raspberry aroma with a bit of green apple. Fruity, tart and crisp. Light wood note in finish. Body was rather light, carbonation faint.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2006
2000 vintage per Matt. The beer pours to a very hazy dark garnet body with a lasting fizzy white head. The flavor is nicely sweet red raspberries. Nicely tart funk. The aroma is red raspberries with a sour funk and some yogurt. The palate is tart, sweet, coating.
