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%.

08.19.05 375ml bottle, corked, dated best before 07.09.2006, L2260, Z21. Dark and wine-like magenta appearance, murky and dull; small but dense pinkish beige head. Aroma is musty cherries, brown bag, very sweet. Not so sweet flavor, but lots of fruit. Lingering sweetness after the swallow. Thinks about being tart, but more of an acidic sweet-tart much like fresh cherries. Some woody driness tries to sneak in, but never makes it. For the price, I hoped for more.

Smelled like cherries, looked brownish red. Tasted sweeter than the Boon Framboise, did have a bit of oakiness to it which was nice.

Nice color, a lot of mature cherries in the tast, not so much acid, more of a sweet fruity taste, a bit too sweet for me.

12oz corked bottle. Pours a clear red color with a thick pink head. Sweet cherry aroma reminds me of cherry soda. Flavor was not as sweet as expected. Same cherry soda in the flavor, but not in a bad way. A bit tart on the finish. Very drinkable.

RichardGretton (4374) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2005
Bottled. Very thick looking red beer with a steady head. The aroma is lightly cherry and the flavour is light and quite sour. Overall a reasonable lambic.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2005
Dark red with a small pink foam. Strong, sweet natural aroma of black cherries. . Sugary but still natural flavour of cherries and brown sugar. Sweet aftertaste. Too sweet for me.

Sten (694) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 First rating saturday, july 30, 2005: 5/4/6/4/15 total 3.4. Dark red with small pink head, it has a aroma that reminds me of cherry-yoghurt. The taste starts sweet but the aftertaste is sour. A nice kriek overall. (Corked bottle 37.5cl crop 2003) Rerate: First bottle vintage 2009, bottle 25cl. 3/4/4/2/10 total 2.4. Nice red coloured beer with a firm pink head. Aroma of cherry soap. Flavour is way to sweet, like drinking sugarwater with cherry flavour. Rerate: Second bottle vintage 2008, corked bottle 37,5cl. Nice red coloured beer with a fast diminishing white-pinkish head. Nice cherry aroma, flavour is sweet and a litlle it sour, but still to sweet for me. 6/3/6/3/12 total 3.

(Bottled, 2002 vintage, 4.5% abv.) Deep red, almost purple, unclear colour. Not much head. Cherry aroma with faint notes of cork. Somewhat sourish cherry flavour, but overall a bit too sweet.
