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%.

Dark red rose with thin pink head, slight turbidity. Nose is dominant cherry, with some oak. There is both a moderate sweetness and sourness, nicely balanced, and no bitterness. The body is light with a lively carbonation. First proper kriek I’ve tried, so no real basis for comparison. Enjoyed the dominant cherry character, but the lambic character could be a bit stronger for me. My next one will be aged another year. 375mL corked and caged bottle. Crop 2008, BB 12/05/2013

Primeira Lambic que bebo e achei perfeita. Essa cerveja é sensacional, tanto no aroma quanto no sabor. Cheers.

Pours clear red. Sligtly tart cherry aroma, and the taste is refreshing and light. Medium carbonation and very enjoyable.

Vilaine Boon Kriek! Comment peut-on être aussi mauvais et porter l’étiquette Lambic? Bon, c’est de ma faute, à quoi d’autre pouvais-je m’attendre? Couleur environ brune avec des reflets environ rouges, la bière est laide. Au nez, c’est bien entendu médicamenteux et sucré à la manière de jujubes de dépanneur. L’action en bouche est la suite logique pressentie par le nez. C’est sucré et artificiel. J’étais prévenu et je ne me suis pas écouté. Ça m’apprendra.

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
