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%.

Bottle. Pours a darker burgundy color with a small light pink head. The aroma has much of what I would expect: sweet, sour and oak. The flavors were not very strong, a lighter tart cherry, oak and some lightly funky notes. The mouth feel is on the thin side, and carbonation is lighter than expected.

digopossobon (209) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 20, 2014
Garrafa da safra de 2010. Aroma doce e um pouco amendoado, fresco. A cereja aparece no fundo. Bastante suave. Creme breve e púrpura. Bastante inusual, ainda mais para mim que jamais havia tomado este tipo de cerveja. Líquido turvo cor de vinho tinto. Doce, carbonatado e frutado. É um pouco "travada" no final, talvez avinagrada. Mas isso teoricamente é esperado.

rarbring (1381) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2014
Aroma: The smell has nuts and some cherries in it, but also vinegar and horse blanket. Rather modest.
Appearance: The beer is orangy brown and hazy, has a small pinkish head, no lacing and little curtains
Taste: The taste is fruity and dextrose sweet, but not very sweet, red berries, green tea, a light acidity and mild note of chrushed cherry seeds.
Palate: Very little carbonation, soft and fresh, a medium to light body, very little dryness.
Overall: This one had aged beautifully (9 YO), round and well balanced.
Note: Bottle 330 ml (Vintage 2003) Reviewed 2012-01-21.

375ml bottle from Gall & Gall. Cherry red with a ditto medium head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Very sweet with some sour notes. Cherries (lots of ’m), yeast and some vinegar. A decent kriek.

Pachnie jak delikatne wino, w smaku wiśniowe, nieco gorzkawe prawdopodobnie od pestek. Mocno gazowane, orzeźwiające, ładnie i przyjemnie wiśniowe.

Liljan (2) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2014 does not count
Riklig söt körsbärsdoft. Medel syrlig smak, lätt eftersmak av jäst. Lätt sötma, svagt kolsyrad

Bottle, 37.5cl. Pours a cassis color, subtle foam head. Very nice aromas of sour cherries, gentle sweetness. Taste equals the aromas: short sweetness from the cherries, large sour middle (beautifully executed), cherry sweet aftertaste. Good kriek (considering I am not a fan of sweet beers).

Bottle at home. Ruby red pour with tan head. All cherries, thick luscious aroma. Flavour is cherries, low carbonation. Delicious.

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.
