COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oude Kriek Boon is one of the finest examples of the 100% spontaneous fermentation fruit-Lambic style. 400 g of wild cherries per litre are fermented together with a blend of young and old Boon Lambic that has been aged in oak casks. After clarification, the Oude kriek is bottled and refermented. It is unsweetened, unfiltered, unpasteurised and has no artificial flavourings, preservatives or colourings added. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name. Pour slowly in a flute glass without disturbing the yeast sediment in the bottle. Cheers !

Maakun (1605) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Cork hit the ceiling, dangerous stuff! Deep ruby with very big dark pink head. Hay, dead leaves and earthy up front followed by fresh cherries, some funk and old, almost moldy bread. Light sour taste with a soft long lasting bitterness. Medium bodies with sparkly carbonation. Not really complex but very drinkable kriek.

ruigo (1622) - PORTUGAL - JUL 20, 2015
37.5cl bottle. Deep reddish purple colour with a generous pink head. Cherries, pear, tart and some barnyard in the aroma. Average fizzy carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet at start going to more tart, acid notes and finishing quite dry and bitter. Overall, a very good kriek.

JorgeLee (1458) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle, canít remember where from. Belgium, probably. Deep, rich and yet slightly murky pinky red with a bright pink foam. Was a 2012 vintage so not drunk that young, I thought cherry flavours not as vibrant and fresh as some other krieks, not very tart actually, but very deep complex lambic sourness, earthy. Interesting, complex, quenching, just perhaps not my favourite kriek.

mateuszk (1014) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 8, 2015
Red color, pink head. Strong cherries in the aroma and taste, along with almond and some oak, funk, leather. Dry, crisp, medium to high sourness in the finish. High carbonation give more drinkability. Great kriek.

nogva (56) - NORWAY - JUL 6, 2015
375ml bottle from 2014. Pours deep red with a pink head with good retention. Aroma of sour candy, cherries and some barnyard. Medium body, slick feel, fizzy carbonation. Taste is tart but full with lots of delicious cherries, unripe plums and some citrus. Long lasting and quite dry finish.

375ml Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark red with a thin pink-white head. Tart aroma, cherry, green apple, yeast. Medium carbonated, light body, fizzy and watering mouth feel. Fresh flavor, gentle sourness, cherry, sweetness of dark dried fruits and red apple. Nice dry finish!

Kauge (754) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle. Awesome brew... on one level itís delicate, savoury, deep, and on another, itís acidic, vinegary, almost harsh. Probably the best Kriek Iíve yet to have.

Erzengel (5621) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2015
Best before 15.09.2029. Old rating from 2011. Tolle saure Kirscharomen mit einem Hauch Holz. Fruchtig und dennoch mild mit angenehmer Sšure. Toll!

BillHick420 (442) - North Dakota, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2015
Pours clear deep (ruby?) red (into a snifter), with a brighter pink head. Cherry on the nose - some sweet candy. Sour cherry aroma, some sweet candy. Slight carbonation with small bubbles, and a dry mouth feel.

Hopmaestro (653) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2015
Great aroma from wood, cherries (duh!), citrus and vinegar. Taste is indeed dry and tart at first and the cherries break through pretty much. In the aftertaste I get an earthy and woody note thatís almost bordering towards stable and old horse blankets. The aftertaste keeps it interesting enough for me and I will certainly try this one again. I still feel like thereís more to catch up for me in the lambic styles, but Iím starting to enjoy it more and more. A nice Kriek.
