COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kriek Boon is a traditional Belgian Lambic fruit-beer. It is brewed according to the traditional Lambic style of spontaneous fermentation. Only fresh cherries (25%) are used. Kriek Boon is slightly sweet, with the surprising natural fragrance of sourcherries and almonds. With only 4% of alcohol it is a perfect summer beer.

Editor’s note: Was 5%.

375ml bottle. (Vintage 2013) Pours a clear, dark ruby with a medium, log lasting, pink head that laces. Aroma of tart cherries. Sweet flavour of tart cherries with a crisp, dry, acidic finish. Light body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty.

from 37,5cl bottle. poured a deep dark red to more purple colour with a pink head. nose has a beautiful deep sweet cherry aroma, maybe a bit to sweet for my love of lambic. faint grains, citrus, slightly vanilla sweetness, cherry pits, raspberries, and a note of sweet cinnamon. old barnyard, and just a bit of funk. taste is indeed expected by the nose a bit to sweet. some of the lambic funk is lost here

lebermilz (188) - GERMANY - FEB 1, 2016
2014 75 cl. bottleThick offwhite froth, intensely red. Intense, sweet cherry. Off dry cherry aroma, medium sour. I expected it a lot drier and more sour, but it is quite well made and harmonious.

Une kriek sur le fruit et la rondeur, une explosion de cerise au nez et une bouche tout en délicatesse. Une très bel accord avec le lapin à la kriek

You shouldn’t expect a sour bomb, but this is a true great cherry sour juice. Very drinkable, sour and sweet, lots of cherry character, one of my favorite kriek although it doesn’t have the strong sour kick.

sjogro (1906) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle at home. Vintage 2014. Bottle picked up at local Gall & Gall. Dark ruby red with pink head. Cherries, cooked cherries, fresh apples and some dough /cream-cheesiness (probably from the yeast). Little dusty flavors. Overall fruity sweet, no obvious added sugar in the flavor and a very light sour finish. Body is medium, texture is dry, carbonation is average. Very tasty kriek! I think this is the best ’non sour’ kriek I’ve had so far. Edit: Sweetness becomes stronger when it warms up.

Tap @ Beertemple. Pours deep red with a pinky head. Aroma of sweet candy-like cherries, marzipan, fruit yogurt and a bit like a soda. Almost no funk. The taste has cherry, marzipan, vanilla, and a very weak tartness - but mostly like a breezed or something. Still drinkable and nice to enjoy.
