COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Kriekenlambic/k" is the draught product which has gone to no extra bottle-fermentation. It can be either straight, or sweetened for debit. In this last case, it is usually pressurized.

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2014
The ’flat’ cherry lambic from the keg (Frank Boon seemed to prefer metal kegs over wooden barrels for flavour stability, not sure if this is still the case today). No foam as expected in a pure cherry lambic, deep cherry red colour with vaguely purplish hue. ’Malse’ (mellow) lambic with lots of lactic acid, horseblanket, hay, not too much citric acid, woodiness from the cherry stones all drenched in a fresh, acid, very lively cherry aroma and taste. Boon clearly masters this very well - but then, what does he not master when it comes to authentic lambic beers...

(Backlog) at spontaneous fermentation. Purple still pour. Aromas are of dusty, funky, barnyard, and grape tones. Dry almost grape flavors.

MJGG (951) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Verre de 25 cl, d’un cask, au Centrum Hotel de Beersel. Arômes intenses de cerises cuites. Robe rouge et limpide, aucune effervescence ou mousse. En bouche, ce kriekenlambic se montre particulièrement fruité, montrant peu de caractère de lambic. Acidité plutôt faible, mais finale malgré tout très sèche. Pas des plus complexes, mais tout de même très agréable.

JulienHuxley (3162) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
On cask at WoSF 2014. Opaque purple pour. Winey aroma, dark cherries, vanilla. Taste is fruity, dark cherries, sweet, mild acidity. Palate is med bodied, med-sweet, you can feel the heavier Boon lambik in this one. Good.

tom10101 (2846) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
At WE of Spontaneous Fermentation 2014. Opaque purple/burdungy color with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of cherries, leafy notes, dust and almost no funk. Taste isn’t sour, but there’s cherries, leaf, wood and dusty notes. Medium body. Flat. Slightly dry finish. Good kriekenlambik. Not very tasty because it’s quite simple (no complexity), but the balance is good.

cpetrone84 (1434) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Had on cask at the brewery. Pour is dark ruby red with copper edges and a creamy light pink head leaving a huge lace. The nose is overly singular and heavy on fleshy cherries. The taste folllows suit, ripe fleshy cherries, much akin to cherry juice. Body is light and soft, fair amount of carbonation but lingering finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6926) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Zythos Bierfestival 2012, Leuven, Belgium. Poured up via wooden cask gravity feed with a grape fruit juice color and deep ruby red hues supporting a minimal thin pink ring of foam. The aroma offers up musty notes of wood and funk and getting more sour the deeper I pull. I get full dark currant to grape skin like notes. The taste is rich, bright and tart with dark currant like flavor and then getting a bit spicy with oak before smooth red wine nuances are noticed. I also get some tannins seeming to dry it out into the finish. Wow, nice smooth rich and easy drinking.
