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%.

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.

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. I’m afraid it’s 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!

JonMoore (1918) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2005
Bottle 2003. Dark red, clear with a slim pink head. Restrained cherry aroma. Nicely tart flavour with just about the right amount of cherryness for me (not overpowering). Light and thirst quenchingly drinkable.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2005
Couleur rouge scintillante parsemé d’une mousse rose et adhérente. Dégagement gazeux extrême lors du service. Aromes de poudre de jello aux cerises et de friandises trop sucrées. Métallique en bouche, pas acide du tout, faiblement tartrique et surtout trop sucrée. Échantillon, mondial de la bière, Juin 2005.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2005
Sampled at le Mondial de la bière 2005. Clear dark red pour with a thin pink head. Sweet aroma of cherries, it smells a lot like a cherry Life Savers candy. Sweet and moderatly dusty flavor of cherries. Light body, the texture is oily but not too syrupy, the carbonation is soft. Ok but too sweet.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2005 Vintage 2000: Reddish brown in color, its’ got an old mustiness to it’s aroma, as if the cherries need to be dusted before drinking. The cherry scent is somewhat buried under the funky sour hay aroma. The drink is tart, the cherries still subdued. The finish is a dusty sourness. Not too bad.

(Bottle 25 cl) "At least 200 grams of cherries per liter", the label promises. Well, that sounds just fine to me. But the problem is, that the cherry-flavour doesn’r really shine through. Pale reddish colour, with a small, bubbly reddish head. No colourings or flavourings which is fine by me too - and also might explain the vague flavours. 190797

Bottled, vintage 2002. Cloudy redish, pink head. Very fine, fresh and sour cherry-aroma and flavour. Extremely refreshing.
