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.

Editorís note: Was 5%.

Bottled. 2003 oogst. Sour cherry aroma with pretty evident gueze-like corky notes. Lightly to medium tart with a medium sweetness. Woody, corky flavours. Dries out on the tongue. Nice one. Not too much sweetness.

Nice musky cherry lambic. A simple rendition of the style and an accessible introduction to the world of sour beers. I like it as one of my favorite fruit beers.

Ooh! A cloudy reddish color that makes me think of strawberry soda. Cherry taste. Kinda tarty and fizzy.

Pours a hazy red with a pink foam head. Tart barnyard cherry aroma. Sweet and musky cherry flavor. A bit watery. Somewhat one dimensional, but still had a nice, real cherry flavor.

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2005
Bottle (cork exploded quite violently spilling almost half of bottle onto kitchen counter). Cherry-brown in colour with a lasting large pink coloured head. Aroma of sour cherries, candy and coins. The flavour was lacking the sourness of the aroma, mostly sugar coated cherries and a small tartness was all that was left. Medium-light body, violent carbonation. Finishes a bit on the sweet side with some lingering cherries.

aroma of wet socks and cherries. cloudy red/brown, slight head. the flavor was quite sour, with very little hint of the fruit in the nose. not one of my better lambic experiences.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Clear dark crimson, light pink head. Light aroma of sour cherries, candy. Taste is somewhat of a letdown as it is quite mild for the style. Cherries are there, but hardly any sourness leaves this tasting more like cough syrup than it should. Medium bodied.

Hooollyy Shit!!! I just barely loosened the cage and the cork freaking blew the cage right out of my hand. Scared the ever living crap out of me. Vintage 2003. I guess this one is OK. At least it smells OK. TONS of carbonation. Almost too much so. Iím afraid itís getting too hot while I wait for the 6+ inches of head to die down. Now onto the flavor. Damn this is tasty. Not to sour or tart. Just the right amount of sourness to make me want to take another sip. Nice tingly palate to boot. Highly refreshing. Reminds me of the cheery sours I used to eat bags full of while at the University Park pool during the summers. Well done Lodewijk! This is one hell of a start!
