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. Bright ruby red, witha pink fluffy head. Sour cherry nose, with a bitter almond note. Sour palate, loads of bitter cherries, very pure fruit character, but not too intense and falls off a bit sharpish. Sweet juicy finish.

ineedbeer (890) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Poured from a 750 ml bottle with a best by date in 2017 (2012 vintage?). Aroma is slightly sweet with a moderately strong cherry note. Light funkiness and oak with light acidic character. Cherry has a bit of a medicinal aroma. Pours a slightly hazy, dark reddish brown with a small, thin, slightly pink head that disappears quickly. No lacing or legs. Flavor is moderately acidic and slightly sweet. Moderately strong cherry character, both sweet and sour. Light funkiness with some light oak character. A bit of a candied almond character. Again, the cherry character is a touch medicinal. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Seems a bit flabby. Overall, a very cherry forward beer with a bit of acidity and oak. Rather faint funkiness and oak. Cherry is so strong as to make this somewhat one dimensional. Acidity could be a bit stronger as could the funkiness.

Calisky (1140) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 1, 2014
Couleur rouge sombre, reflets pourpres, très légère mousse rosée. Nez de cerises, cerises noires, sirop. Gout très fruité de cerises bien naturelles et douces, bien fort en bouche. Bonne pétillance. Fin longue de cerises avec notes très légères vieux sucres et aigres. Pas mal, juste peut etre pas assez subtile.

Syfher (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle of 37.5 cl, in a Tumbler glass. Great kriek, with a really nice aroma, with lambic and dark cherries notes. A beautiful dark red colour, with a nearly rose head. Great taste, but go more for an oude Kriek than this one, it’s even better. Try it, love it ! Cheers !

Bottle. Red pour with a pinkish head. Cherries, almonds, vanilla, syrupy. Fairly sweet and a bit artificial.

Had it at the new beergeek bar. cant remember if i got one of my own or just drunk half of cams. either way, it sticks out in my mind. pours a cheery red with a pink fizzy head. aroma totally dominated by cherries. slightly sour and funky. tart taste rounded off by tasty cherries. more funky tartness woulda been preferred but its still fukken deliciousssssss

375 ml bottle to stemmed Boon Kriek glass. Looks good; a fairly transparent cherry red with light pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of cherry and mild funk and oak. Tastes like it smells, but more tart than funky. Almost candied. Medium-bodied on the palate. Soft for a lambic, but enjoyable nonetheless.

"pours a light ruby red in color with a bubbly pink head. smell is of tart cherry and funk...definitely a lambic. although the lambic flavors come out a little more than the cherries, it’s pretty tame overall. not bad, though, but not quite as good as Lindemans. Drier tannic finish. Nice lingering sweet n’ tart aftertaste."
