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.

Editorís note: Was 5%.

Rood en een kraag die lichtjes op het bier blijft liggen. Aroma van kersen, maar niet echt sterk en nog alleen als ie niet te koud is. Smaakt vrij waterig, wat zoet en wat vage kersen. Ik ben niet onder de indruk.

Bottle from Beer52. Pours a deep red with minimal head, strong aromas of sour cherries and almond. Tastes of tart fruit almost black forest gateaux lol Crisp and fruity, not one Iíll be buying again but certainly not terrible

25cl bottle from Beer52.com - 2014 vintage. An attractive cherry red colour with a tight pink head; fresh ripe cherry aroma; pleasant taste with very tart fruit and an underlying sweetness; and a clean finish with lingering almonds. A satisfying full fruity beer.

25cl bottle from Beer52. Pours a stunning deep red colour with transient pinkish head. Aroma is sickly sour, but the taste is perfectly balanced between the lambic sour and sweet cherry. Everything a kriek should be.

375ml bottle. Canít believe I havenít rated this before. Pours a dark cherry red with thin pink head. Aroma is cherries, more berry fruits, hay and yeast. Lovely smooth texture. Fine carbonation. Slightly tart cherries, yeast and more berries. May be a little sweet for some but I love it.

dnicolaescu (1439) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 20, 2015
BOTTLE 25 CL. Clear ruby-pink, pink head. The aroma is mostly cherry syrup, rotten cherries, almost nothing lambic. The taste is similar, sweet and slightly rotten, mild acidity - more cherry and fruity than sour beer. The body slightly sticky. A hint of piquant bitterness in the finish is the only thing that reminds of a lambic. Sweeet.

2006 bottle shared on a bus. Really fun experience. Held up nice. Slight oxidation didnít take away from the dark cherries and slight funk. Minor tartness with a touch sweetness.

Gurthnar (3814) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle at tasting. Deep cherry colour. No head. Aroma strong strong cherry. Taste is mostly cherry flavoured and sweet, with only light tanninish tartness. Lacks some complexity, all cherry. Good one though.

Bottle at home. Has a clear red color with small light pink head. Sweet aroma of sweet cherries, earth and candy. Sweet is also the flavor with more candy, strawberries and sweet cherries. Has a slick and sticky mouth feel, and no bitterness. A pretty sweet kriek with lots of berries.
