    When it comes to Lambics, Boon does it right. This is a fine scarlet red beer with a bubbly pink head. Lots of yeast.funk in the aroma to go along with the tart raspberries. The flavour is nicely balanced between sweet and tart fruit, and vinegary funk.

    Pours a small foamy pinkish looking head but goes away pretty quickly. Has a hazy reddish appearance with nice ruby highlights. No lacing whatsoever. Aromas of yeast, wheats, fruits, cherries and faint raspberries. Flavours are quite fruity, raspberries and cherries for sure. Fairly sour and bitter on the palate. Somewhat tarty as well. Drying and slick mouthfeel. Full bodied. Fairly excessive carbonation. Pretty good and aged well it seems (2012 on bottle and also says 5%abv)

    Single bottle from the LCBO and my first Boon brew. Best before date is Nov 27 2018 written on back label, but not sure this one is not infected. Smell like wet feet and the flavour is not really good (yes, feet again). Alright, there is a bit of what is expected like some sourness, some sweetness, Belgian yeast and some light tartiness. Clean deep copper-red colour with a pink frothy head, average retention and minimal lacing. Of course, this one does not list sugar in the ingredients like some of the Liefmans, so maybe this is what a more natural fruit lambic should taste like. Just a little too unbalanced for my taste. Thankfully does get better with time.

    5.5% 750. Better than the kriek, me thinks. A little more complex than I remember the cherry being. Very fruity up front, but there's enough of a hint of cheese and tart to keep things interesting. I love me some framboise. It had been a while...

    Beer pours a translucent cherry red colour with some weak bubbling for a head, and highly effervescent. Aroma is raspberries, funk, yeast, and vinegar. The mouthfeel is light bodied and average carbonation. The flavour is raspberries, funk, and vinegar. Quite pleasant.

    Aroma is raspberries as one would expect. The flavor is somewhat sweet and a hint of sourness with some tart raspberries. This has some wine like characteristics to it. Overall not as aggressive as many lambics but very good and drinkable on this hot day in Atlanta.

The taste is raspberry, vinegar, oak, light tartness, sour cherries. The finish is sweet raspberries and tart oak'd fruit. M - Light body, light carbonation, syrupy dry finish.

    redish color with redish foam head, quickly dissapearing. Aroma is raspberry, taste is raspberry. Very sour. Always drink these type of beers as desert after tasting some stronger ones. Aftertaste is raspberry. (Helsinki 201211)

    It says on the website that there are a minimum of 200 grams of real raspberries per litre - why did they say 'real'? Are there brewers using fake raspberries? The beer pours a solid burgundy colour with a thin pinkish cap. Raspberries and funk dominate the aroma. The same raspberries and funk dominate the flavour. Very tart, yet very good.

    2005 Vintage, no expiry shown. Poured out a small whitish head that had some retention and leaves some spotty lacing. Kind of an orangy reddish brown - definetly not a colour that catches your eye. The aroma is totally different than the Lindemans I had two days ago. This one has it's raspberries but they are not oversweet or potent - they come across softer and do not seem fresh picked and some blackberries. There is also some leather and some other odd off-smelling odor. The taste is a very sharp, blunt, watery sourness - very sour indeed. The raspberry is there but the sourness has overpowered it. Very very tart. This is the total opposite of Lindemans. Short sour finish that does fade in strength. Wacky. I think I'll get another one that's younger and give it another shot.
