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%.

way too sweet for my tastes, a champagne like mouthfeel with lots of bubbles and foam from the pour. a lot of cherries in the taste, but an overwhlemingly sweet and sugary palate dominate. i enjoy the tarty, sour aroma of its cousin oude beesel kriek much more

Good mix between sweet and sour. Fresh lambick with strong cherry taste. One of the best lambicks in my opinion.

Dark red color, light red little head. Medium cherry and sour aroma. Medium bodied. Sweet flavor with cherry and mild bubble gum, ends with mildly sour aftertaste which lasts.

Magenta pour with pink head. Strong cherry aroma that reminds me a lot of Jolly Ranchers. The flavor is sweet and tastes fairly artificial to me.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2009 Bottled at Delirium, Gothenburg. Clear, wine-red color. White head with a red hue. A little sour cherry-taste dominates. Delicious, sticky, but somehow balanced sweet. Fruity aftertaste. Rating: 7-4-8-4-16-3.9. (051008)

Bottle, 375ml. Vintage 2006. It pours a hazy, cherry red body with a little orange tint. White head of moderate size. The aroma has cherry, some almond, sweetness and a faint sourness. The flavor is sweeter than I remembered, with some sourness, a little almond and funky hints. The sourness isn’t as lemon-like as expected, more cherry-like. Full-bodied, almost sticky, and at the same time slightly sourish. Very mellow. I would like it to be less sweet, but it’s a nice beer anyway. Sure wouldn’t mind having access to it all the time.
