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%.

Garrold (4242) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
375 ml bottle. 2014. York Beer and Wine. Hazy, dark ruby colour. Halo of dark pink head. Nose has sweet, ripe black cherry. Cherry syrup. Black Forest gateau. Notes of cherry stone and raspberry ice cream. Barely a trace of sourness. Taste is sweet with a light, stone fruit, earthy dryness. Light body. Foamy mouthfeel. Gets less sweet on the finish. I get how some may love this beer, and I did enjoy the one glass, but overall it’s a bit sweet for me.

Spesiell øl vi fikk når vi ba om en morsom øl. Meget kraftig kirsebær smqk. Utrolig spennende smak.

Morsom øl som ikke smaker øl, det ser ut som rødvin, lukter kirsebær og smaker godteri

MRMedellin (274) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAY 1, 2016
Clear red beer, standard carbonation with a small head. The aroma is soo fruity, a lot of cranberry, red berry, and raspberry notes, not too much from malt or hops. The taste is the expected for a fruit beer, but in here the hops play a nice roll making everything work. At the end the sour flavor come into, making a good balance with the hop bitterness.

SlackerMads (2866) - DENMARK - APR 3, 2016
Bottle. Deep red with a medium sized pink head. Cherries, sugar and almonds in the nose. Flavour has sweet cherry sauce, almonds, marzipan. Pretty sugary. Cherry candy. Light/medium body, lively carbonation, light sourness. Too sweet for me, the sugar makes the cherries seem artificial and candy like.
