Brouwerij F. Boon’s “Framboise Boon”

      I find it hard to believe that in almost two years, and 155 craft beer reviews I have not presented one true Lambic (fruit beer)! I guess that is one of the things that I love most about beer! I know that I will have a lifetime of new (new to me) beer styles, and variations of those styles to experience! I will never run out of material for this site that is for sure! Don’t let anyone tell you beer made with fruit is not beer! Lambic is actually a pretty hardcore brew! Anyone can pitch specific strains of yest to produce beer. It takes an adventurous country like Belgium to let it’s beer be free and open to wild yeast to spontaneously ferment. Lambics are great to drink and cook with. Try reducing one to make sauces or syrups for ice cream or cake. Or just dump a silky scoop of french vanilla ice cream in a Lambic for a great beer float! Let me suggest one of my new favorite Lambics!
       Brouwerij F. Boon’sFramboise Boon” is spontaneously fermented with real raspberries. After removing the cork and cage from this brew it pours a dark, cloudy burgundy with a thin, fizzy pink head that disappears in an instant. The aroma is simply fresh ripe raspberries. The taste packs a wallop of pleasantly sour raspberries with a hint of woody must. The mouthfeel is very light with sharp carbonation. The finish is earthy, tart and dry. This is an excellent Lambic and a great beer. For those not familiar with this style or think that fruit beer is for wimps, you have no idea what you are missing and I think that this brew may be the one that changes or opens your mind! Here’s to Good Beers!
