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.

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)

2012 bottle rated last January, best before end 2017 - Pours deep red and has a pleasant raspberry aroma with a little funk. It tastes sweet, fruity, and lightly tart. Good raspberry flavor. It's a bit thin. I wonder if that's age related. Still fairly good but I'm be curious to try a younger bottle.

Robe rouge foncé, presque brunâtre. Mousse moyenne blanc cassé, moyennement aérée, tenue moyenne. Nez très fort de framboise, sorbet, un peu synthétique. Bouche très aromatique fruitée de framboise, légère acidité, courte, douceur moyenne. Corpulence légère, carbonatation moyenne. Lambic aux fruits très accessible, acidité légère, douceur agréable. Arôme de framboise puissant.

Forteo89 (282) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 12, 2017
Aromat malin, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku również maliny, choć już nie tak intensywne. Zabrakło brettów, które były słabo wyczuwalne.

sailor_one (104) - Krakow, POLAND - OCT 1, 2017
375ml, 2014 bottle. Nice aroma of fresh raspberries. It's neither sour nor sweet, just light in every aspect. Nothing amazing, but it's still good.

Hopverdju (1573) - BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2017
Troebel donkerrood bier met licht roze schuimkraag. Geur: zoetzuur, kersen, framboos, wat amandel en iets wat ik herken als lambiek of is het een vleugje brett? Smaak: zoetzuur, kersen en frambozen, wat stroperig. Lichte koolzuurprikkel. Volmondig. Afdronk: zoet, fruitig. Deed even denken aan Liefmans. Onder de zoetere framboos bieren een drinkbaardere keuze.
