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%.

Quite nice when you like your kriek a bit on the sweet side.

Pours with a hazy, light red color, topped with a white head with a red undertone. The aroma is pleasantly sweet nad fruity - cherrylike. The taste is sweet, there’s definitely cherry in there. Finishes with a bit of bitterness somewhere in there. A very decent kriek.

Backlog. Tried it both bottled and on tap a number of times. It’s one of those standard krieks, good for beginners.

We’ll this has an aroma that is certainly more on the sour funky side of things, unfortunately, the flavor is quite sweet, almost to a lined an level, which is far too juch, makes me loathe to try the others from boon. Bummer.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes rötliches Bier mit pinker Schaumkrone. Geruch süß nach Kirschen. Geschmack sehr frucht süß nach Kirschen, leicht säuerlich.

Entirely too sweet for my liking. Would have liked to see the sour cherry come through more. As it warmed there was a slight oakiness in the nose and flavor.

750 ml cork bottle “2011 Crop” bought at Valentino Chocolatier in Wan Chai.

Looks: Clear black cherry - currant colour with no yeast sediments.half finger head with off-purple foam which fades in 20 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: fragrant sour cherry with light yoghurt, red wine, strong funk, oak, sugar, tannic and malt

Taste: Very light sweet taste of light malt, with sour cherry fresh, blackcurrant, yoghurt, light vinegar, wood barrel, funk, high carbo, light tannic, hint of red wine, faint lemon and very light grass

Body: Close to light body. Watery palate.

Mouth feel: Both the lambic tartness and black cherry tastes seems to be on the light side, might have been neutralized by the sugar, yet overall taste is nice minimal sweetness with a bit of vinegar notes. Strong oak barrel presence you can taste it right away. Overall taste is neat and on a bit of muted side. Hmm…

Hoppiness / Tannic: weak grassy hops typical for fruit lambic, Fairly light in tannic. No bitterness slight tannic finish.

After Taste: Wet after taste. Very easy to mouth.

Comments: After Boon Framboise, I expected just as much for this one. It came up short for thin body, rather simple aroma, and rather weak lambic and cherry taste. However, it shows it maturity with strong oak nose and taste, good balance of sweet and sour, at the expense of richness and variety. Good, but not great.
