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.

Good looking burbangy yet clear. Sour nose of funky yeast and berries. Taste is tarte and sweet yet has an odd metallic linger. Enjoyable, but I think I like their kriek better.

pootzboy (1824) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2018
Caged corked bottle, vintage 2012 - pours a clear ruby-brown with a smallish cap that goes immediately to a surface lace. Aromas of raspberry, vanilla, wood, and funky sourness. Very sharp on the palate good for cutting through oily cream cheeses - flavor is deeply fruity, tart, earthy-funk...goes very dry and puckering in the finish. Enjoyed this greatly with a tray of rich holiday canapés.

Аромат притягательный, нежный. Запах спелых фрукт и ягод. Цвет темно красный, пена отсутствует. Вкус по началу слегка першит и кислит но позже становится сладким. Отчетливо ощущается малина и земляника. Послевкусие длительное и мягкое. Местами конечно слишком приторно для меня но все же есть четкое понимание что пьешь настоящий Ламбик.

LazyPyro (1794) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2017
375ml bottle, 2015 vintage. Pours a deep reddish colour with a thin quickly dissipating pink head. Aroma of light sweet and mildly sour raspberries. Taste of sweet and sour raspberries, mild farmhouse notes, fairly dry, crisp. Light body, average carbonation. Easy drinking lambic, refreshing.

fidelis83 (2535) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - DEC 25, 2017
2013 bottle. Dark, ruddy brown pour with a 1/2 finger creamy to soapy white head and some pitch dark chunky sediment. Aroma is sweet, fleshy raspberry, earth, cooked lemon a hint of vinegar and a hint of cracker. Flavor is raspberry, light toffee, cracker, light vinegar, toast, and a hint of mint and sweet tobacco. Light to medium body, light, somewhat sharp carbonation. Pretty good, but a little dull.

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.

murzyn (613) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 28, 2017
Barwa czerwona, piana niewielka. Aromat stajnia, konik, maliny, truskawki. W smaku malinowo gorzkie, trochę kwaśne. Spoko pifko.

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.

Aus der Flasche (Version 2013) im 2016-08 getrunken. Volles Himbeeraroma, moderate Säure und Bitterkeit. Toll balanciert und schön süffig. Geiles Teil!

3.3
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.
