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.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, - JUL 2, 2006
Vintage 2004. Graet deep-red color, copperisch and with a warm orange glow. Nice white, slight pinkish head leaving a fine lacing. Very fruity and expressive aroma with hints of sweet apple, red forrest berries, cherries, mullberries and overripe raspberries. It also has touches of musty tree bark, sous bois, some mint, old bourgundy wine, nectarine peaches and refreshing hops in the nose. The taste is fruity and keeps a good balance between sweet fruits (Berries, apples, and ripe stonefruits) the herbal bitters and the complex earthy accents. The afthertaste is very tastefull and the beer has a nice soury crispyness that counters the sweetness of the ripe red fruits and the refreshing herbalness of the well dosed hops. It has a great potential to age.

EdKing (2477) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle of the 2011 Ive been ageing, originally from Utobeer. Cork pops out of the bottle with no carbonation. Dark pinkish red, browning with age, slight white bubbly head which dissipates to nothing. Nose is like raspberry jam. sticky jam sweetness, slight tart and sour, little damp cellar. Taste is raspberry jam, minerals, damp cellar. Mouthfeel is a little thin.

W aromacie głwnie nuty winne, owocowe, troszkę stajni. W smaku dosyć puste, z owocową kwaskowatością. Zdecydowanie za mało charakteru lambici.

oliczka (11) - POLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Niby fajne kwaśne piwko, ale nie jakoś za nimi przepadam, dlatego taka ocenka. Z rzeczy na plus to zdecydowanie mocno malinowy aromat i w sumie na tym koniec. Dobre w swojej klasie, ale niestety jak dla mnie to zostawia posmak amareny lub taniego szampana w buzi :/ Jeśli nie lubicie kwasw (chociaż podobno jest dosyć słodkie) to nie polecam

Very unspectacular, mostly raspberry sirup with light acidity and sweetness.

jjsint (2673) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle from the Three Horseshoes, Stapleford. Red, translucent with a little bit of pink head around the rim. No surprise about the aroma: fresh raspberry abounds with slight notes of lemon peel, champagne vinegar and a metallic note. Tart taste, which concentrates on the fruit but theres more than a suggestion of the sprightly lambic underneath. Sweet-sour interplay in the finish. Nicely carbonated, I can forgive the thin body considering the mega-raspberry fizz on the tongue. Extraordinary.

beer-yum (1512) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 14, 2017
Massive raspberry aroma in a crimson copper pour. Subtle tart taste is balanced with a flavour enhancing saltiness. An excellent example of why the Belgians are to beer what the French are to wine.

superspak (5107) - Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2017
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2014 vintage bottling. Pours fairly clear deep ruby red/light copper color with a 2 finger dense pink head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sweet/tart/tangy raspberry, fruit skin/seeds, lemon, plum, cherry, apple, red grape, brown sugar, toasted bread, wood, light hay/funk/pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of raspberries, fruity/earthy yeast, bready malt, and oak notes; with great strength. Taste of big sweet/tart/tangy raspberry, fruit skin/seeds, lemon, plum, cherry, apple, red grape, brown sugar, toasted bread, wood, light hay/funk/pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate fruit tartness and light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raspberry, fruit skin/seeds, lemon, plum, cherry, apple, red grape, brown sugar, toasted bread, wood, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity/earthy yeast, bready malt, and oak flavors; with a great malt/tartness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/grainy/acidic balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice young fruit lambic. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity/earthy yeast, bready malt, and oak flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and easy to drink with the balanced fruit acidity/sweetness. A very enjoyable offering.
