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%.

Kriek beers are on my list of favourites and although I prefere them kind of sweet, this one is dry and is pretty dem good. The flavor on the moth after each zip is just delighful.

patricks110 (1780) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
Pours a bright, sparkling red in the body with a faint yellowish pink head that foams all over the place. The aroma is markedly big with sour cherries notes as well as light honey and sweet malt notes. A bit sour and acetic up front with tart cherries and light toasty malts. The finish is sweet and moderately sour and tart. A mild dry astringent aftertaste.

Helder robijnrood bier met een roze snelzakkende schuimkraag. Zure kers (kriek) in de neus. Zure smaak, veel bittere kersen, heel puur en fruitig karakter. Zoete sappige afdronk. Ik dronk de versie 2012 met rood etiket.
