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 !

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle, 37,5 cl. a dark red hazy colour with a small, but lasting, dark pink head. Taste is one of cherries and sourness. The beer starts sour with the first gulps, but very soon the natural cherry-taste comes fully in your mouth, very well balanced with the sourness. A very good and easy-drinking beer, very refreshing.

Defreni (2798) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2009
Flaske: Årgang 2004. Flot lyserød uklar næsten uigennemsigtig øl med et flot lyserødt skum. Duften er svagt kirsebær med en del surhed og en smule stald. Smagen er forholdsvis kompleks med en tydelig aldring der gør at frugten næsten er forsvundet men dog har sat sit præg. Dejlig øl.

Pours a dark red with a pink head. Aroma of sour cherries, and Brett. A strong tart sour cherry flavor with Brett characters. This is sweet and tart, sour and funky, overall pretty good.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Pours a dark copper/ black cherry color with a very faint pinkish off-white head. This looks authentic and not like a syrupy mess like many other "lambics" seem to. The frothy head has goodretention that eventually fades into lasting cap that leaves minimal streaks of lacing. Earthy oak aroma with beautiful musky horseblanket earthy funk notes with only some slight vinegary tartness. Real dark cherries dominate the aroma instead of the expected syrupy artifical sweetness. I could swear that I could even detect the cherry pits. I held the glass up sniffing it for several minutes salivating before I even took a sip. Lots of earthy oak flavor with nice tannis, wet horseblanket funky tart notes. While it is very tart, it isn’t overly acidic making it very well balanced and easy to drink. Sour/tart dark cherries with a lot of oak and vanilla masking the sweetness. Again I’m very excited about the lack of any artificial syrupy sweetness and the fruit characteristics are quite subtle. Very puckering and extremely refreshing with a perfect dry finish. I want to buy multiple cases of this beer.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Bottle best before 30.03.2026. Pours a glowing bright clear, but too dark to see-thru, ruby red with a lovely pink foamy rocky head that fades into a fine froth. Aroma is full of funky stinky barnyard and tart cherries, chlorine, dusty, this lambic really some of that musty earthy stink in there. Flavor is fairly dry, musty tart sweet cherries, almost a little more fruity than just that of cherries, a bit citric, hint of formaldehyde, hint of vinegar, mouth puckeringly sour/tart, med-strong acidity, some pie-crust in the finish, as well as a bit woody. It’s so sour that it is quite hard to pick up on the more subtle details. Medium/light bodied , very thin feeling, lighter than water it seems, amazingly soft fizzy carbonation that only attacks as it passes ones lips, extremely clean mouthful. A really nice fruit lambic that is way more lambic than fruit compared to the regular Boon Kriek.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Pours a clear, deep, ruby-red color with a foamy, light pink head that settles to a small, lasting blanket. Minimal, sudsy spotting mostly rejoins the pool below. The nose shows all kinds of funky lambic goodness, notes of tart cherry and sour lemon providing ample acidity, while musty barnyard wood and earthy, bretty dust complete the wild profile. Flavors are equally well structured, bracing sourness stemming from the cherry and acidic citrus, drying farmhouse dust contributing to the funky lambic experience. Old oak is a prominent factor. Moderate to light in body, the lively carbonation intensifies the dry, acidic, downright puckering mouthfeel. The finish is prickly, bone dry, and refreshing. Damn this stuff is good. Criminally underrated, in my opinion.

Bottle. It pours an hazy red colour with a pink head. Aroma is sour cherries with weak notes of vinegar, marzipan and apples. Flavour is very sour and slightly bitter cherries with fermented notes. It has a nice smooth aftertaste.
