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%.

Bottle, own stemmed flute glass @ the Blanche De Bruxelles cafť, Brussels, June í06.
Produced a translucent ruby, sparkling in this barís courtyard, the afternoonís bargain hunters merrily passing by as my wife and I supped. The head formed off the pour, but little retention, and bubbles on the meniscus was all that held. Carbonation slight, fine. Aroma was very pleasing; big fruit, sour, tart and tickling, light notes of sodden barrels, rusting steel, maybe a little cheese but it is all so much controlled by the fruit. The palate the same. It is soft on the tongue, not much bounce, comes off creamy. Fruit is ripe and rampant with sweet reaches at front and a solid, savoury, fruity-soft, dry safe-zone as it moves south. Acidic and hessian sack notes not lacking, the finish is full of funky yeast developments and voids harshness to deliver a nice balance of true Lambic character with full, supple fruit flavours. A little wood resides on and in the mouth, some textured cherries too. It was a complex little brew, my notes obviously vague I had to build them. Itís been a while since I tasted this. I liked it, and whilst I bought it for my wife, with me knocking it back, I had to replace her drink quickly!!!! (33cL corked, no date)

Kriek beers are on my list of favourites and although I prefere them kind of sweet, this one is dry and is pretty dem good. The flavor on the moth after each zip is just delighful.

Amazing aroma of sour cherries and springtime breeze. Pours a red color with a fizz and presence in the glass that demands you drink it. I couldnít stop sniffing this beer. Flavor was excellent with a perfectly light palette. I never wanted this bottle to end. It wasnít at al cloying, and it was pretty dry for a fruit beer, the sour cherry (think cherry pie cherries) dominated the flavor.

Grovlam (4198) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2007
Bottle. Head was red with an average fizzy appearance. Color was red with a murky like body. Aroma was predominantly sweet berries and some acidic. Vinegar, cherries, raspberries could be felt. Medium bodied with a fizzy carbonation and a slightly sticky texture. Flavor was light sweet with some balancing acidic notes. Nice balanced kriek.

Light and crisp lambic. Sweeter than others that I have had. Quite a strong cherry aroma and flavor. Lots of carbonation and a long-lasting pink head. Interestingly sweet, but lacking the sour taste that I LOVE. Overall, not bad.

robinvboyer (3881) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2007
well this was interesting.......... Dark dark red, very thin pink head. Aroma is of cherries, and vanilla. Very soft lambic, not much tartness at all, its quite sweet, actually a little too sweet. Not what i was expecting, tastes very much of dark overripe cherries, and not sour at all. Would be very nice on a hot summer day.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle. An aromatically fruity, almost lemony brew. Flavour is complex, bustling with fruitiness and not so acidic as one would believe, pretty "soft" and good to drink, even for those who are far from hardcore lambic drinkers. A great unblended 100% pure lambic.

Clear seethrough red with a fine dense head. Nose is filled with cherry, floral and preserved berries. Quit sweet an lackís a bit acidity for my taste!

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle, 25 cl. Had this beer on one of the warmest summer days, a good drink to cool down. Clear red colour with a small pink head. Artificial sweet cherry aroma. Sweet fruity flavour with moderate lambic tones.

The aroma has some of that wild funky Lambic yeast with a tart yet sweet cherry pie element. The appearance is cloudy red with plenty of carbonation. The flavor is sweet and tart with enough fruit taste to counter the sourness of the Lambic. The palate is thin and refreshing. This is one of those rare, drinkable Lambics (at least in my book) and itís the best Boon that Iíve had.
