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%.

Bière rougeoyante, opaque et sans col. Au nez, De la cerise sauvage et des arômes acétiques. Elle est bien acide, peu amère et quelque peu sucrée. Elle est légère, de texture aqueuse, finement effervescente et se termine sur de courts arômes rafraîchissants.

Cerveja Lambic com adição de cereja no processo de fermentação. Acidez marcante. Cereja ajuda a reduzir a acidez. Enjoativa.

jjsint (499) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle at home originally purchased at Bedford Beer Festival Oct ’13. Medium dark brownish red, with a bit of light sneaking through. Sour cherry aroma, a slight hint of earthy funk. I smell the almonds as well - are they really there or is it subliminal? Who cares, it’s nice. Light easy taste, sweet and sour balancing nicely: it’s not mouth-puckering but nor is it alcopop sweet. Thin palette. Good beer, would certainly have this again.

Nice fresh beer. It has some fresh cherry aroma, but the nose is not as strong as I expected. I also smelled some herbs and barnyard (like horse or leather, maybe coming from the wild yeast). Body is around medium/medium -, I liked the crisp acidity. The flavors mirror the aromas, a light raspberry character stands up and lasts some seconds after swallowing the beer. Alcohol is not very strong. Not bad, less "juicy" than I expected at first, but enjoyable.

From a bottle. Pours reddish brown with a fizzy pink head. Smells like creamy raspberry and strawberry popsicles. Tastes sweet, lightly tart, like strawberry hard candy. Light body and low carbonation.
