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%.

Isn’t hard to rate a lambic? I’d take one over just about any other style, but I’ll rate this one against others, so the score is a bit low. It’s a complex beer from top to bottom--reddish in the glass, turning to amber in the shallows; whitish head that recalls sodas. Sour cherry nose, but is that a hint of leathery malt? On the palate, the cherry is the first, tart note, then the lambic rushes in, sour and lip smacking, but it finishes gently with definite raisin-y malt notes. I mark it down for being slightly understated to my palate.

Niet slecht. Kriek is niet mijn favoriete biersoort, maar deze is eigenlijk best goed te drinken. Goede balans tussen zoet en zuur.

Purple red haze colour with pinky/white tiny head. Visualy medium carbonation. Aroma of cherries, hint of grape, but without note of an alcohol. Flavor is similar: firstly sugary sweet, with slight sourish finish. You can detect notes of cherries, but it seems somehow artificial. Good but in comparison with Oude Geuze, this is completely average lambic.

Årgång 2013 Flaska från Best of beers i Ålborg. Ser ut som ett ljusare rödvin. Doftar härligt av körsbär. Söta körsbär med en fin eftersmak. Söt men inte så det slår över. Mycket smarrig! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kvalmende søt aroma. Minner om medisin. Smaken er sursøt, tydelig kirsebær - bedre enn aromaen. Drikkes ikke opp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
