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%.

Bottled, at the Dovetail, London.
Viscous red, goop. Strawberry jam and confectionary preserve aroma. Just too fruity for my liking but I do appreciate the amount of flavour squeezed into this little bottle.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Rose-colored body with mild carbonation (especially for a lambic) and thin sudsy pink head. Aroma of cherry, yeast, spice, and mild brett. Ripe black cherry and oaky flavor. Considerable sweetness and very low acidity. Syrupy quality. Oakiness helps it to finish drier than expected. Tasty, but not my idea of a lambic.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2004
Redbrown cloudy beer with beige head. Sweet aroma of maraschino-cherries, vanilla and fudge. Low acidity. Fruity flavor with tones of crackers and müsli . A bit dry with low acidity.

Dark red in color. Very sweet. Sweet cherry flavor. Sweet cherry aroma. Ok. Too sweet for me. Needs to be more balanced.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2004
375 ml corked bottle. Dark pink cloudy appearance with a pink head. Sweet cherry pie aroma. Aroma is mostly of sweet cherries, with a touch of tartness thrown in. A little too sweet. Needs some of that classic lambic tartness to balance things out, but otherwise a nice dessert brew.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2004
On draught at The Bishops Arms, Göteborg, Sweden. Dark cherry red. Rich fruity aroma from cherry seed. Flavour: Sorbet cherry up front, followed up by wild strawberry. Soda pop, but good.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Bottle: Deep, dark red color with quickly diminishing pink/red head. I’ve had mixed experiences with Krieks - some being excellent and refreshing and others being just overloaded with cherry sweetness. This is one of those beers with too much cherry and sugar. It takes over the flavor of the beer, drowning out any/all of the characteristics of the lambic this beer is based on. Tastes like cherry, cherry, and more cherry, with some nice wood notes in the background. Similar in carbonation and mouthfeel to a gueuze, this beer simply lacks variety and balance in its taste.

kwoeltje (2212) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUN 19, 2004
Dark red with rapidly fading pink head. Sweet cherry aroma. Flavor is sweet cherry. Only a hint of sourness/tartness. An easy introduction to lambics.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2004
Big, sweet cherries to start. Dark red with pink tinged head that recedes to ring. Sweetness continues in the flavour. Cherry candy with light tartness in the finish. Excellent body with lively, efferevescent mouthfeel. Lambic for beginners perhaps or just aimed for mass market appeal. Bottle (green - Mondial 2004).

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2004
27th beer of the 2004 Montreal Mondiale. Pink beer, lighter head. Aroma is quite pungently cherry, kind of woody. Taste is sweet, but cut by a nice acidity. Peppy palate. Good for that hot sun.
