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%.

Red beer, pink head. Nose is sweet, syrupy, cherries. Flavor is sweet, some sticky notes, cherry tartness underneath, some dryness lingers. Too sweet for me.

Gangstergafje (281) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2015
The beer has a red color, like grenadine syrup. The beer pours a little drape of white rough foam. The smell is of cherry’s and there is a bitter aroma. The cherry flavor is not as artificial is a kriek can be. The taste is also of regular kriek. The tastes are mainly sweet and sour and there is a little dry sensation in the finish. Not beer is not that special.

2012 bottle. Looks smells and tastes like cherry soda. They shouldn’t call this a kriek

Ok done. Taste fresh cherry, not additive flavour. Not my kind of lambic, like much more gueuze.

Sample at Wild Wild Beer Fest. A bit on the sweet side. Almost like a raspberry dessert. Lots of fruit and a little more tart on the finish.

hens (701) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - MAY 12, 2015
0.5L bottle. Rubby body with tiny pink foam. Fresh, pleasant cherry aroma. Natural cherry, overcooked cherry jam, caramel candy. Very nice Kriek. Everything is excellent. Nice caramel syrup and overcooked sugar mouthfeel.

BreWedge (388) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
375 ml bottle (2013). Pours a clear ruby red, just like a cream soda with a silky pinkish head. Aromas of sour cherry pie. Taste is sour cherry but also moderately sweet. Creamy, moderate to heavy carbonation, and medium length sour finish. Pleasant summer beer but I wouldn’t want more than one owing to the sweetness.
