Pours a deep red with a fluffy pink head that recedes down fairly quickly to a thin topping.

I know the Boon beers pack some sweetness but was surprised at the level of musty funk going on behind the big jammy raspberry aroma.

There is a light tartness that takes hold but ultimately comes off more on the sweeter side. The flavor is dominated by the raspberries with some mild funk going on. Light and bubbly on the tongue.

Very enjoyable and drinkable sweeter fruited lambic like the Girardin Framboise.

3.53/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

(3.5) A: Clear cranberry red with a fingers worth of white head that quickly recedes to a ring. Lacing isn’t evident.

(3.5) S: Tart raspberry, apple, grape, grasses, and faint hefe-like qualities. Bit subdued and straightforward with minimal sourness but still pleasant.

(3.5) T: Tart raspberry, an element of sour – maybe more balsamic than lemon, orchard fruit, grassy grain, and faint cloves. As the aroma indicated, the flavour is good but straightforward and not that bold. However I do like the level of dryness and the fact this isn’t sweet.

(3.75) M: Medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Clean and fizzy on the tongue.

(3.5) D: This was good but not a lambic I would revisit given the generally subdued qualities. Just wish there were more lambics to choose from in Ontario stores.

375ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $6

Appearance - Burgundy colour with an average size fizzy/frothy beige head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Raspberries, citric

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, citric notes and raspberries. There is also a hint of vinegar and it ends with a lightly tart aftertaste.

Overall - I can see this being a good intro into sours beers. Its got a light tartness but is in no way overpowering. Most of these types of beers are also a little cloying, this one keeps the sweetness in check. That being said, it is a little one dimensional - but decent and refreshing nonetheless. I'll pick up a few more bottles to have on hand to introduce others to the style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

From a 375 ml bottle to a snifter.

A: pours a deep red with a thin head that appears pink in color. The head breaks almost as soon as it appeared.

S: smells of ripening raspberries and other berries. Some funk as well.

T: super-tart raspberries overwhelm the palate. Not much else can get through.

M: medium body and medium/high carbonation. Sour finish is actually quite nice.

O: I found the tartness of this beer to be refreshing at first, but it became a little overwhelming toward the end. I am not sure I'd have this again.

3.48/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a dark, ruby red with a tall fizzy head of pink foam. Drops quickly.

S - Sweet fruitiness. Raspberries of course, a bare hint of funk. Supposedly this contains cherries as well, but I can't really tell the difference from just raspberries.

T - A little bit sweet, a little bit tart, a hint of bitterness in the back end. Mostly very clean. Fruit flavour is there as well as a lingering aftertaste that's bitter and fruity (like orange rind, but not orangey).

M - Fizzy, light and refreshing. I dare say a bit on the watery side.

O - Overall, I find this a little weak. Accessible, but not exactly bursting with favour.
