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%.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a murky dark cranberry red with a very small (almost non-existent) light pink fizzy head that was fully diminishing in just a few seconds and had no lacing to speak of. The aroma was all about the cherries with a mild caramel malt and a sweet yeast and had a hint of candi-sugar and a slight sour odor. The taste was abundantly sweet and a tad acidic with a very big cherry presence throughout, with the finish having a hint of candi-sugar and a nice mellow tartness towards the end. The flavor hung on for a decent duration with the sweet-tart cherry taste fading ever so slowly. Mouthfeel was just a tiny bit beyond light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a soft mellow carbonation. Overall a nice fruity tart Lambic that was extremely drinkable, reminds me a little of a Sour Cherry Jolly Rancher...

Fisler (191) - GERMANY - JUN 24, 2015
Im Galopper des Jahres derbe vergaloppiert - sehr süß, etwas pappig, etwas sauer, sehr spontan - wird aber mit jedem Schluck besser. Wenn auch nicht viel.

La mousse est de couleur rose très clair elle est légèrement épaisse ensuite la couleur de la bière est de couleur rouge rubis il n’y a pas de dépôt elle est bien translucide. Au nez on va sentir une odeur de bonbons aux fruits rouges puis on va sentir des note acidulée. En bouche on va sent quelle n’est pas vraiment très sucrées ce qui est plutôt positif on va encore sentir des saveurs de fruits rouges petit problème elle n’a pas assez de longueur en bouche et le goût de la cerise n’est pas assez présent le côté positif et qu’elle est quand même très désaltérante car elle est peu sucrée Cuvée de 2013

Keg. Red with short lasting pink head. Aroma of cherry, like cherry flavoured sweets. Taste of cherry, slightly medicinal, some very light sharp funkiness. Slightly sweet and slightly tart

bartlebier (2537) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2015
37,5cl 2012 Vintage, bb10/2015 and earlier bottles. Little survives of the original robust barley-and-old-hop rustic funk origins of Boon lambiek in this kriekenlambiek inspired and marked by the softdrink-like sweetening of beers in Belgium since the ’80. What remains is a helplessly thin foundation of wheat-tart lambiek underneath a barrage of aspartame-sweet cherry syrup, monodimensional and only cloying when chilled like cherry coke. A strange return to dry form in the dry aftertaste to wipe away the Haribo Cherry Coke bottles.
