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 at home. Has a clear red color with small light pink head. Sweet aroma of sweet cherries, earth and candy. Sweet is also the flavor with more candy, strawberries and sweet cherries. Has a slick and sticky mouth feel, and no bitterness. A pretty sweet kriek with lots of berries.

Pours an opaque dark cherry red with a medium whitish/pink head. Aroma has dark cherry and a red wine note to it...somewhat musty. Flavor follows suit...lots of dark cherry...not much sweetness but no tartness either...just a bit of funk. Mouthfeel is full and the finish is dry and lingers with dark cherry.

Vilaine Boon Kriek! Comment peut-on être aussi mauvais et porter l’étiquette Lambic? Bon, c’est de ma faute, à quoi d’autre pouvais-je m’attendre? Couleur environ brune avec des reflets environ rouges, la bière est laide. Au nez, c’est bien entendu médicamenteux et sucré à la manière de jujubes de dépanneur. L’action en bouche est la suite logique pressentie par le nez. C’est sucré et artificiel. J’étais prévenu et je ne me suis pas écouté. Ça m’apprendra.
