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%.

VsXsV (3920) - Stockholm, - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Almost clear deep pink/purple liquid with small to medium pink head. Aroma of cherries, cream/lacto/yoghurt, red berries, very light barnyard and sugar. Taste is light sweet and almost not sour at all with notes of cherries and sugar. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Too sweet...

Bottle. Dark red with foamy pink head. Aroma is dominated by cherries and some sourness. Taste is of sour cherries, and with a soapy aftertaste.

The_Osprey (6306) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2016
375ml cork and cage bottle at home in Richmond, as ’Kriek Boon’, 4%, 2014 vintage (bottled in 2016). Dark ruby red, almost opaque, still, dense foamy pink head. Aroma is deep cherry, musty lambic, lemon and lots of sour Haribo Tangfastic sweets. Body is light, a touch frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is sour cherry sweets, cherry cola, pretty syrupy. Like a cherry flavoured faro. Way too sweet. This is quite a depressing beverage because the brewery is actually really good, but this is not. I’m thinking about all the great beers they could have made instead of this.

Mjollnir (397) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2016
2014. Pours red with a thin pink head. The cherries are strong in the aroma, with a slight funk and maybe some wood. Quite sweet with just a hint of sourness. Light body, soft carbonation, drying finish.

0,375l Flasche. Tiefrotes Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht nach reifen Früchten, ein bisschen nach Rotwein. Schmeckt intensiv nach Kirsche, leicht süßlich.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- wunderbare zarte leicht säuerliche Kirschnote - geschmacklich ohne übertriebene Süße oder Säure - bleibt immer noch ein Bier - Abgang dann mit einer schönen herben Note - perfektes Kirschlambic Fazit: Das perfekte Kirsch-Lambic

willisread (2453) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2016
2014 vintage from Tanakaya. Pours a deep ruby pomegranate with a half a finger of pink foam. Cherry drops on the nose but as it warms a little light oak makes its way out. Cherry all over the palate with a touch of blackberry. Fairly sweet, but not syrupy either. Crisp and clean carbonation. Not really tart though. A perfect gateway fruit lambic though.

Bottle at St Veronus. Aroma isn't anything special, but the cherry flavour is incredibly appealing. Sweet, sour and fresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
