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%.

Bottle from Liquor Mountain (going for Y598 these days). Gentle but definite cherry nose, cough syrup, and small spice. Thin translucent red, fizzy head. Clear cherry initial flavor, light retronasal funk rising up, hits of fruity tartness and some mild hop bitterness, and a moderately dry finish. Thin-medium body, foamy. Nothing extreme or very special, but pleasant stuff. Maybe a touch too sweet.

Smakprov beerwall, brygge. Rödrosa vätska. Tydlig doft av körsbär. Syrlig och söt smak av röda bär. Framförallt körsbär. Även hö och lite äpplekart.

On tap in Kortrijk. What a treat to drink this on tap! A perfect summer beer, low alcohol content, fruity, refreshing. Not a beer to drink sequentially, but one is a fine diversion. Wonderful smell, delightful beer variant.

Der Kirschgeschmack ist klar wahrnehmbar, aber nicht zu viel. Ein gutes Kirsch Lambic.

KoNrRiI (1215) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2016
0.33 bottle. Clear, dark crimson color and a small, pink head. Aroma is obviously dominated by cherries and features small hints of chocolate. A sweet and sour taste of cherries - relatively refreshing considering krieks. A medium body, a slick texture, and an above average carbonation. Finish is medium long and not particularly strong. Overall the beer is good, it’s flavorful but balanced and unimposing, sweet but not tacky.

Bottle from Appellation Wines Comely Bank. Pours clear dark cherry red. Nose of cherry sweeties, fresh dark cherries, hint of chocolate malts. Super tangy, fresh fruit, refreshing, full-bodied.
