BOON Framboise - 375ml
Raspberry lambic used to be a delicacy that was produced for only a few weeks during the summer months. In 1976, Frank Boon revived the tradition. Framboise Boon is characterized by a fresh fruity taste that is achieved by using more than 300 grams of fresh raspberries per litre. Although young lambic complements the flavor, the focus is primarily on the raspberries rather than the lambic. Boon never uses artificial flavourings, only real raspberries. To showcase the bright fruit character, this beer is best consumed when young.
Frank Boon, a pioneer of the authentic lambic and gueuze revival, has owned and operated Boon Brewery since 1975. However, the brewery has its roots in the village of Lembeek dating back to 1680 as a farm-brewery and distillery. In 1860, Louis Paul purchased the brewery to exclusively produce lambic and faro. By 1875, gueuze lambic was being bottled. Pierre Troch bought the brewery in 1898, but it changed hands after the economic crisis of 1927, ultimately being acquired by Joseph De Vits. Joseph's son, Rene De Vits, was highly regarded for producing exceptional soft and fine gueuze lambic. As Rene De Vits had no heirs, he sold the brewery to Frank Boon.
