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%.

harrymel (1496) - Spokane, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Best by 03MAY16 Pours a dark, deep sanguine red on purple with some scattered pink bubbles. Smells like Bing cherries - furrreal. Flavor follows with plenty of cherry flavor, rather sweet with some bits of tart in the background and plenty more cherry. Light bodied with moderate carb and a dry finish. Good enough. Like that it is the Bing character.

Bottle. Just a small taster of this one, but it sure packs some punch! Nice sour cherry flavour, slightly sweet but very drinkable.

Zekada (102) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle shared by a friend. Smell is very sweet and light and has tones of cherry. Pours wine red with a small pink head. Taste is sweet, light and fruity. Palate is a bit bland and too sweet. Overall an okay beer for a warm summer day / evening but too sweet for my taste.

Deep red color, pink head. Cheery nose, vinous, cherry pits, marzipan, sour notes. Sweet cheery taste, sour candy, tart, fine balance. Medium body and carbonation.

Een van de lekkerste, zoniet de lekkerste kriek dat ik ooit al gedronken heb. Zoet, maar niet te zoet

degbert (1099) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2014
TPSA. Pours a rich, dark red with a pronounced rose-pink head. Nose is rich cherry pie filling, though not overly strong. Cherry flavor is predominant, and it’s sweeter than the framboise; it’s not out of balance, though, and there’s just a hint of skin/pit bitterness to cut it. Finish is very, very long. Delicious.

berlinoise2go (608) - NORWAY - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle (375ml). Dark, hazy ruby colour. Finger-thick pink head, reduces to a thin film, a thick bubbly ring and some lacing. Aroma of sour cherries, raspberries, almonds, crushed cherry kernels. Medium body, average carbonation. Fruity, fairly sweet taste (think raspberry candy) with a mild tartness and hint of vinegar. Refreshing (although a bit too sweet) and drinkable. Fruity-tart aftertaste.

Hazy dark red color, thin pinkish head that quickly disappeared. Medium body, soft carbonation. Strong cherry aroma. Medium sweet, light sour taste. Short sweet and sour aftertaste. OK.

Bottle 37,5cl. Red with a rose top. Aroma like cassis, just like it’s taste. Not bad, but much too fruity for my taste.
