COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%.

2012 vintage from Bottle Shop, Brugge. Deep ruby colour, slightly pink head. Aroma is very pungent, strong cherry smell. Taste is nice and balanced. Not too sweet, not overly sour and easy to enjoy. Enjoyable stuff and probably my favourite Kriek.

Piękny głęboki wiśniowy kolor, delikatnie czerwona piana. Silny aromat wiśni. W smaku nuty charakterystyczne dla piw belgijskich no i wiśnie :D. W piwie wyczuwalne posmaki wina w których piwo leżakowało. Piwo słodko/kwaśne, bardzo dobrze ułożone.

Geruch nach Kirschen und Brett. Im Geschmack fruchtig und wenig sauer. Im Abgang dann ein bisschen Brett.

Vignale (1975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2014
Flaska från Beernavigator. En trevlig kriek i det mellansöta registret. Inte så syrlig och relativt söt alltså men ett av de bättre allternativen om det är så man vill ha sin kriek. Körsbärssmaken är stor och fin och kärnbeskan med mandel smak likaså. Trevlig välkyld i sommarvärmen.

TheCametron (1730) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle with my burger at Bruxx. Pours Ruby Red with a short lived Pink head. Tart lemony sourness with a very forgiving distribution of cherries creating a nice fruity brew. Goes down smooth you guys.

Dogbrick (7567) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Sample at the Big Tap In on 05/31/2014. Cloudy ruby color with a medium fluffy pinkish-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing. Fruity aroma with yeast and spice notes. Light-bodied with flavors of tart fruit, spices and yeast. The finish is fruity with a cherry aftertaste. Above average overall.

Desverger (1611) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2014
Tap@Black Swan, CPH - red pour with bubbly pink head. Aroma and taste is prominent fruity cherry, interesting balance of sour and sweetness but defiantly more sour, tart cherry on the palate.
