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.

A cherry red beer with a beutiful head. It tastes strongly of cherry which it also tastes of together with an OK bitternes and a very little sweetnes. It’s much less dry and bitter than other krieks I’ve tried (but not rated). A very well tasting easily drinable kriek.

(Bottle 25 cl) "At least 200 grams of cherries per liter", the label promises. Well, that sounds just fine to me. But the problem is, that the cherry-flavour doesn’r really shine through. Pale reddish colour, with a small, bubbly reddish head. No colourings or flavourings which is fine by me too - and also might explain the vague flavours. 190797

Bottled, 2002 vintage, 4.5% abv. Cloudy clear red. Sweet balsamic cherry aroma. Sweet and clean with lovely cherry flavour, but the body is thin, and the sugar makes it to sweet and deprives it of complexity.

Post ACBF boozing in that bar in Kortrijk. Slightly hazy red beer. Little pink head. Dry crisp palate. Morello cherry - not that sweet. Crisp finish. Does what it says on the tin!
