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.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2011 My first fruit lambic!! Bottle, 37.5 cl. Deep red color, with a small pink head. The immediate aroma is fresh raspberries wrapped in sweet caramel-ish aromas. Sweet lambic jesus this smells good! In my mouth the body is medium to full, I’d say. Flavor is very much like the aroma, with wonderful fresh raspberries with delightful notes of caramel, slightly sour, but with sweet edges. Quickly, as I swallow, the expected sourness really comes through, refreshing and very very very pleasant! The sourness continues into the finish, leaving my mouth full of raspberry flavors, tartness and sour goodness! Wow. There are other flavors here besides the raspberry, but I’m not sure what they are, since I’m relatively new to the world of sour ales, but the raspberry flavors definitely dominate. The stuff in the background makes me think of a barnyard and such, but it’s very faint. Also, hints of lemon.

Overall: I think this is just spectacular! And it’s probably not even the best fruit/raspberry lambic out there! Wow!

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.

375ml bottle. Clear ruby red color. Huge size, pink head, stays. Sweet, raspberries, jammy and sour in aroma. Raspberries, jammy, dusty, bit metallic in taste. Dry mouthfeel. Raspberry sourness in aftertaste. Solid brew.

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

Aromat malin, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku również maliny, choć już nie tak intensywne. Zabrakło brettów, które były słabo wyczuwalne.

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.

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.

Fajne połączenie lambika i owoców, aromat malinowy, w smaku owocowe, kwaskowate przyjemne

Piwo klarowne w kolorze czerwonym nalewa sie z obfita lekko rozowa sredniopecherzykowa piana. Maliny, niezbyt intensywne dzikie nuty gdzies w tle, malo kwasne a raczej moze odrobine slodkie bez goryczki z wysyceniem na srednim poziomie.
