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%.

Frank (2862) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Deep copper color with the just the slightest touch of pink in the foamy white head that leaves behind tons of lace. Nose is mild, more vaguely fruity than it is cherry. At first I also noted a bit of smoky funk but that waned quickly. Slightly sweet with a prickle of carbonation and a slight sour tang. Finishes with much drier than it tastes initially with a bit of lingering sourness. Definitely refreshing but it’s lacking a bit of complexity.

mmm. this beer is so sweet. literally. i really like fruit lambics in general and this is by far my favourite. it has a nice amount of tartness and smells and tastes like real cherries. some might say too sweet but not for me. i especially like the deep pink hue of the head. and the champagne bottle. class all the way.

I am not a huge fan of this style and this was highly enjoyable. Just a bit too tart but not over the top, had a nice fruity mellow sweetness to it, but some very nice fruit flavors.

Dark cherry red-pink body. X-S white head with a very slight amount of lace. Kriek nose; sweet-sour with a bit of barrel and a touch of Vermont Cheddar Cheese. Cherry flavor is predominant. Finish is clean and slightly sweet and tingly.

maeib (8711) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2004
Bottled. 2002 crop. A deep red coloured lambic with a thick cream coloured head. The aroma is of plump cherries and fizzy alcohol. The taste is quite sweet and obviously there are cherries, both the taste of the stones and the pulp. It is a tasty beer but one dimensional in comparison to other Lambic - Fruits.

Well carbonated and dark red in appearance. The head does not last after the pour. Slightly tart and sweet at the same time. Dark cherry flavor with a slight medicinal tinge.
