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 (3967) - 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...

wchesser (1920) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Dark reddish purple. Viscous and syrupy. Nose is cherry cough syrup, almond extract, slightly floral. Taste is cloying sweet cherry cough syrup. A small 2-4 oz. pour with some chocolate desert is about the only context I can see this being very enjoyable.

Nice, easy drinker, perfect for anyone new to the good beer scene. A little to sweet for me to drink too many of.

The_Osprey (6600) - 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 (398) - 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.
