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%.

Salmoniform (245) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Deep blood red hue with white head. Aroma is notes of cherry, vinegar, leather. Mouthfeel is great with light body and high carbonation. Taste is medium dry but sweet throughout with and acidic following and dry finish. Overall this is huge black cherry but I wish that this was a bit more tart.

Draft. Big cherry aroma that comes across a bit like childrens cough syrup. Tart up front, but has a fairly sweet backbone.

Buongiorgio00 (576) - - JAN 10, 2014
Bottiglia del 2010. Non so se è stata un’annata sfortunata o meno, ma in questa kriek prevale un carattere dolciastro e sciropposo che scavalca l’acido che mi sarei aspettato e che avrei voluto trovare. Pessimo lavoro, specialmente considerando che si sta parlando di uno dei grandi maestri del lambic.

The perfect dessert beer after a big meal. Flavourwise the infused cherries give a taste that is both sour and sweet. A beer to be savoured.

375ml bottle into a stem glass. A very dark red colour with a think pinkish head. Aroma is sweet cherry, smells very fresh. Taste is smooth cherries, some carbonation, very sweet. Well balanced, becomes a bit too sweet towards the end.

Bottle pour deep blood red, purple with lavender head. Nose tart cherry, sour, and slight woodiness. Taste sour cherry, not as tart as nose. Some mid palate umami. Mild fruit on finish.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours copper with reddish hue, head is pinkish. Nose is genuine cherry not cherry-pop. Flavour is cherry, wood, slight barnyard. Slightly tart. Not overly lambic-y but authentic and enjoyable.
