Another day done. My boss was at my terminal today, which means that I was stuck in lots of meetings today. It was nice to get home at a decent time thought. Let’s get to the beer that Val ordered at Memphis Taproom.
Style: Lambic – Fruit
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Raspberry lambic was once a rarity and only produced for a few weeks during the summer. Frank Boon was the first brewer to again prepare a raspberry lambic in the summer of 1976. More than 300 grams per litre of fresh raspberries give Framboise Boon a fresh fruity taste. The young lambic supports the flavour. But this is very much about raspberries, not the lambic. Of course we do not use artificial flavourings, only real raspberries. Boon Framboise has an alcohol volume of 5%. Drink it when it is young.”
Random: I find the “rhyme time” category in Jeopardy irritating.
This beer poured with a one finger, pink head that dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing o the glass. The body was a clear red color with light carbonation. The nose was very fruity with raspberry. I didn’t get much else from it. The taste had a lot of raspberry and light funk, which was disappointing as it could have used more. Some vanilla and toasted wood came through as well. The body was very light, bordering on watery with light carbonation. The finish was quick with raspberry and vanilla. This was a nice beer and if you haven’t tried it, it’s worth a shot.
