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.

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, Id 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 Im not sure what they are, since Im 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 its very faint. Also, hints of lemon.

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

Very straight forward, not particularly sour. Very juicy. Reminds me of a more natural Lindemans.

explosivedog (492) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 22, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2016 250ml bottle. Aroma is all raspberry yoghurt without the creaminess. Taste has the same tart raspberry, some lactic character, a little wheat, some lemon juice and a little carbonation. Its nice, a bit too thin, but nice. I could take a lot more raspberry, but Im still happy to drink it.

ComradeK (1158) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy ruby red, with a small white head, which fades fairly quickly. Ripe, jammy raspberry, light, leathery funkiness and woody hints make up the aroma. Quite sour up front, with raspberry tartness supporting that. Sweeter raspberry jam flavours mix with wood, leathery funkiness in the mid-palate, with a tart finish. Not the best fruit lambic Ive had, but still pretty solid.

Meh. An ok fruit lambic. Not one yId search out for. Aroma was pretty weak. Stale roasted malt, musty raspberries and pop tart. Pour was a beautiful deep dark ruby with a cloudy splotchy off white film for a head. Taste was refreshing. Just like a jelly flavored raspberry pop tart with heavy carbonation. Sweet jelly finish with a good bite of tartness. The fruit is a little artificial tasting which is weird.

W aromacie dużo słodkich malin. W smaku słodyczy nie ma ani trochę, kwaśność umiarkowana, zdecydowanie owocowa.
