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 Coppers, Newcastle. A very dark ruby red beer that pours with a thin pink head. It has a rich, sweet cherry flavour, biscuit and cheesecake notes with a slightly thin tart cherry fruity finish.

On tap at Beer Deluxe. Pours red with a medium rose head. Typical kriek smell, but rather low key. Too much cherry in the taste, would need more carbonization or more sourness. Both are there but too faint. I definitely prefer the Oude Kriek and the Marriage Parfait.

Very good Krieke. Nice sour notes with sweet cherries. No after taste, smooth with a little head and nice red pour. Tart enough to hide sweetness.

Dr_Fellini (721) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a beautiful deep rose color with a nice pinkish white head. Aroma is dry, slightly tart, nice cherry sweetness. A decent tart in the flavor, but not overly sour, more on the sweeter end. Lingering sweet cherries in the finish. Tasty fruit beer for sure. Wouldn’t mind a bit more sour though.

Alengrin (2879) - BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2015
Boon’s sweetened kriek, in collaboration with Palm, not to be confused with Boon Oude Kriek. Hazy red colour, off-white, thick head; aroma and taste combine the tartness of lambic and sour cherries with honeyish sweetness from added sugar. Still shows a certain amount of authenticity: I’d say this is a perfect stepping stone from the ’industrial’ sweet krieks in the style of Timmermans or Belle-Vue to true ’oude kriek’. Very decent in this particular segment, but I prefer actual ’oude kriek’.

Nice red colour with a thin cherry tinged head. Aroma is sour cherry and taste is more on the sweet side.
