Pours a deep, dark ruby red coloration with a small, fizzy, pink head. Smell is dominated by a sweet raspberry aroma with a hint of tart black cherries. Taste follows the nose, being very fruity, with a good balance of sweet raspberry and tart black cherry, but very little funk or many other notes coming through, although there is an underlying earthy/musty/woody note to this as well. Finishes with a mild tartness and some sweet raspberry lingering in the aftertaste. Soft mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation. What this lacks in complexity, it makes up for with an excellent balance of sweetness and sourness. Very fruity, but with very little funk and only a mild tartness coming through. Very nice body and mouthfeel.

2014 vintage. Big Raspberry aroma. Pour looks a little muddy and it's a dark red, nice head that dissipates. Taste is raspberry, a lot of raspberry but not tart and sharp, this is quite manageable ad without pucker. It's really quite nice.

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.

Had a 2015. Nicely chilled. Excellent fruit lambic. Clear and fruity raspberry taste, nicely embedded into the lambic. Refreshing. Exciting. No bad odeurs.

From the neckerchief label: "2013"
From the back label: "Best before end 2017" and "5% alc/vol"

Appearance: It pours a deep raspberry red with a pink head. There is a lot of visible carbonation and the head has very good carbonation. The body has excellent transparency.

Appearance: I get a very fresh raspberry aroma from this beer. It smells just like a raspberry smoothie.

Taste: There is a slightly buttery flavor to the beer that accompanies the very precise raspberry flavor. Evidently it isn't the cleanest. It is still an outstanding tasting beer with a very clean raspberry flavor that finishes with a staccato drop of flavor leaving nothing in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is very decadent with a smooth and luxurious start with just enough tartness and carbonation to keep it from being soupy. The middle is spoiled a bit with a slickness that is a bit off-putting.

Overall: A highly enjoyable Framboise that would be a good addition to anyones cellar. I sill be buying it again and I highly recommend it. The highlights of this beer are that it has a wonderful raspberry flavor without ever being annoyingly sweet or tart. It has a wonderful balance.

I am a very big fan of fruit flavored beers. The Boon Framboise is very good! The appearance is a beautiful cherry brown. The aroma is very berry-ful - it consists of cherry, raspberry, and blackberry. The taste is exactly like raspberry jam and very smooth. The aftertaste is bitter, smooth, and dark cherry. Overall, the beer was excellent.
