Bottle: Poured a deep red color lambic with a nice large pink foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of sour and tart cherries notes is quite enticing. Taste is a wonderful mix between some tart cherries with some oak and light funky notes with lightly sweet finish and almost no acidity. Body is full with great carbonation. Wonderful interpretation of the style with great restraint on the acidity level.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011 testad 2013. Tät lila rödaktig. Doften har initialt mycket funk för att sedan övergå till att domineras av körsbär och mosad bigarrå. Riktigt härlig doft. Ganska frisk även. Halv cm rosa skum som håller sig kvar elegant. Inte det minsta syntetiska inslag som så ofta kan förekomma hos vissa kriek. Kan säkert nå magiska nivåer med lite lagring. Delar med en som dricker kriek för första gången och som gör ganska imponerande analyser.

Bottled 2009: Very very dark ruby purple color with a light pink head. Aroma is mostly cherry, leather and wet basement, and still pleasantly floral. Flavor is strong, tart cherries with a sweet creamy finish like frozen yogurt. Crisp and clean, medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation. Really good- will buy again

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite a nice lambic. Iíll be the first to admit that it isnít my favorite beer style, however with this one you get something pretty complex. More like a dry champagne than a beer, but the sour bubbly fruit notes are quite nice. This was a 2011 vintage and I was amazed that the bottle said it could be stored until 2032! Worth trying once.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Poured rich, deepet garnet with a dusting of pink-tinted head. The aroma picked up rich chery meat and a bit of leather topped by cherry vinegar and woody notes.. more funky as it warmed.. really nice. The flavor found tart cherry skins, vinegar, and oak on the tip of the tongue.. pale malt and a bit of cherry meat supported.. finished sour and funky with lots of acidity. Medium-bodied with just the right carbonation.. very sour and bracing at times.. very lovely and well-balanced overall.

Iím more of a gueuze man that kriek man.. A preference i think i share with Frank Boon as he makes much better gueuze than Kriek in my opinion. A corked and caged 37.5 bottle, 2011 vintage poured into my trusty ZBF 15cl tasting glass. My bottle pours pretty flat, deep red colour makes it look like a red wine.. a light chilled one. It could be me or it could be bottle but the aroma doesnít jump out at me as per other old krieks. Taste is sharp, bitter and very nice indeed, but by no means the best of Boon.
