Rosy-bodied and pink-topped, it’s tough to look manly with a glass of Boon’s craft in hand. Aromatically though, the fruit’s luscious intensity is about as delicate as a jackhammer. Strawberry cheesecake, grape candy, red apple and raspberry jelly; there’s pie crust and peaches, brown sugar and cookies. All this is only meagerly balanced by well-aged hops, but no matter, the variegated fruit flavors are truly inspiring. As for the flavor, imagine The Shining’s elevators spewing torrents of raspberry syrup instead of blood. Surprisingly dry, the fruit is full but not cloying and the fine carbonation adds wonderful texture to the experience. Hints of fig, browned butter, oak and black cherry, a finishing touch of blackcurrant, it’s an impressive brew. If it had further explored those sour notes of leather, this certainly would approach perfection in the realm of fruit lambics. For those outsiders who deem a pink fruit beer girly, let me again borrow from Jack Nicholson’s oeuvre and say "YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE FRUIT!" (01/07/07, 2004 bottle)
Barwa czerwona, trwała średnia piana. W aromacie maliny i stajnia, trochę dalej wiśnie. W smaku mniej słodkie niż wskazywałby aromat. Mało kwaśne. Lekko cierpki finisz. Gerbeer (3698) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2017
On tap. Pours a deep garnet red and moderate white head. Aromas of flat raspberries, cotton candy, and wheat. Flavors of metallic raspberries and dry wheat. Linking metallic notes. Maybe a line problem. anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle, vintage 2013. Pours slightly cloudy dark ruby. Aroma is strong raspberry, syrup, maltose. Body is medium, strongly fruity, quite sweet, lightly sour and tart. Raspberry, red berries, creamy. Soft fizzy carbonation. Lingering raspberry palate. Good! Garrold (5180) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2017
2014, 750ml bottle. Etre Gourmet. Dark, dusky, cherry red. Mucky pink head. Nose has raspberry jam. Overripe raspberry. Fruity toffee. Taste is light sweet, with the lightest of fruit sourness. Light body. Fine carbonation. Dries out somewhat at the end. Sat outside on a warm evening, it hit the spot pretty well. 7473-15

Looks very pretty (pink with small head). Unfortunately is more sweet and juicy than Lambic styled beer.

Bardzo słodki, malinowy, intensywnie owocowy zapach. W smaku jest na szczęście raczej kwaśne, słodycz też występuje, ale jest dobrze skontrowana. Brakuje trochę wyraźniejszych dzikich brettowych akcentów. Scipio (1044) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2017
2014 bottle. Pours a dark, ruby red with a bubbly, off white head that recedes extremely quickly. The aroma is slightly earthy, is heavy in raspberry, and has milder grape, caramel, and oak. The taste is tart, dry, and has a slight sweet touch. The impressions are what the nose led you to anticipate. Strong raspberry, with earthy malts, oak, apple, and vinegar. Long lasting aftertaste is a tart raspberry. Light in body, thin in texture, and some weaker, fizzy carbonation. This one tastes good and is a nice change of pace. However, I could never drink something like this regularly. Dervock (1321) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2017
Bottle from boozebud- pours rec with a thin white head. Aroma is is sweet raspberry. Taste is raspberry from start to finish. CurlyJoe (229) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2017
Pours dark red/purple with some fizzy white ’head’. Aroma packed full of raspberries, reminds me of a fresh pie. Taste is much milder than I was expecting and quite dry. Fruity raspberries with a mild funk, a little like portello. Very, very refreshing and approachable, but prefer the kriek. rayaron (1788) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAY 15, 2017
Bottle at l’Ultime Atome, Brussels. Clear red with no head. The aroma has notes of raspberry syrup and yeasts. Sweetish and sourish flavor with notes of raspberry and lemon, some wood, slightly dry and watery. Light-bodied.
