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.

Damn fine framboise. Nice lambic backbone and plenty of raspberry flavors. A little more tart and less sweet as Lindemans.

Scipio (1013) - 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.

CurlyJoe (219) - 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.

Bottle at lUltime 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.

Iznogud (3710) - CROATIA - MAY 12, 2017
On tap at Vrteka 2017. Pours dark red with pinkish head. Intense raspberries in aroma, barnyard, moderate sourness and sweetness, a bit sweeter than I would like. Dry finish. Not that complex. Light to medium bodied.

drjoeng (1204) - SINGAPORE - MAY 1, 2017
2014 bottling. 5%ABV. Lambic Poured out red purple. Nose is juicy and juicebox. Mouthfeel is carbonated and soda like. Sparkling mineral water. Palate has sweet dough. Overall, this tasted exactly like a raspberry or blackcurrant San Pellegrino with carbonation, salty mineral body overlaid with faint fruit flavor. Refreshing like the Kriek Boon.

gripweed57 (2170) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2017
From old tasting notes. Claret colored liquid. No head. Crisp berry nose. Dry raspberry flavor has vinous tart notes. Lightly carbonated. Raspberry fruit flavor dominates this throughout.

Poncjusz (138) - POLAND - APR 23, 2017
Kolor bordowy, rubinowy, klarowny. Piana rośnie, ale opada do dywanika, ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat owocowy - malinowy, nieco truskawkowy, słodkawy miesza się z kwasowością, dość głęboki i intensywny. Smak malin, kwasowość, trochę syropu malinowego, też dosyć intensywny. Brakuje bazy słodowej, choć może dlatego że wytrawne, brakuje też brettw, Pijalność wysoka, ale brakuje czegoś co uniesie zmysły.
