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%.

750ml bottle from Beautiful beers. Red-brown colour, pink foam head and aroma of cherries, dark fruity. Taste is sweet cherry, with tart, woody, barnyard notes. Medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, lingering cherry sourish finish. Quite drinkable.

Pepinis (51) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 24, 2014
Una lambic de frutas, en este caso cerezas que son las que le aportan las tonalidades rojizas y burdeos. Tiene una buena formación de espuma y una persistencia media. Su aroma y sabor son intensos siendo la cereza la protagonista. Tanto la sensación en boca como el retrogusto resultan ácidas pero seguidos de notas dulces. La presencia de las notas fenólicas proporcionadas por las brettanomyces no son evidentes. De cuerpo leve y con buena carbonatación. En los primeros tragos resulta refresacante pero al final puede llegar a resultar un poco empalagosa. Una buena representante de un estilo un tanto "peculiar".

Atom (1401) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2014
75cL bottle pours a murky pinkish brown with a medium pale purple head. Aroma of sweet cherries and backing malt. Taste of ripe not overly sweet cherries, a touch creamy on the finish. Simple and straight forward, nice on this hot day.

allmyvinyl (3948) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2014
375 ml bottle from Appellation wines. Poos clear ruby red, thick pink head, high carbonation keeps it there. Aromas of cherry and almonds - is that klafouti? There’s some dessert this reminds me of. Sweet, and a bit thin at the end. Not bad in the sunshine though.

Klar rød farge med tynt rosa skum. Mild kirsebærlukt. Smaker søtt og selvfølgelig også kirsebær som kommer mer fram i ettersmaken.

Vighals (1308) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Dyp rød klar med rosa skum som blir fort borte. Kirsebær og jordbærlukt. Mest bærsøt og syrlig smak men noe bittrrhet også i smaken. Kort. Lite kullsyre

Beergaard (108) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2014
The perfect summer beer. Quite sour but fresh and with a nice sweetness from the cherries. The taste of cherries is very significant in this beer - both in taste and aroma. Very decent fruit lambic

Aroma of ripe tart cherries. Flavour is cherry sweetness, a little tartness, but I would have liked a far more pronounced tartness.

A nice lambic. Pours blood red in color with pink head. Aromas are canned bing cherries and c cherry kool aid. Flavors are tart cherry, maraschino cherry and some oaky bitterness to round it out. A touch watery.. But still quite tasty.
