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 !

Mortlach (1920) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 1, 2012
15/06/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Kriek spillata a pompa. Bel color ciliegia, vivo, intenso, con schiuma rosa, morbida e abbastanza persistente. Aroma intensissimo di ciliegia, con note pungenti acide e agrumate. In bocca è delicatissima, esordio dolciastro, con ciliegie ben in evidenza, e finale lungo, acido, impegnativo, interessante. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Discreta.

Bottle from overseas. Served in a Grote Dorst mini gueuze tumbler. 375mL bottle. 2008 vintage. Pours a clear dark blood red with a good pink head. Light lacing and a thin pink collar. The nose brings some cherry and a bit of very light funk and acid, though not too much. The cherry component of the flavor is quite nice, though some more lambic character would be nice. Light body with good carbonation. A bit tart. Pretty good, but not up there with the best.

375 ml bottle bought @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours blood red with a fizzy pink head that quickly dissipates whiteout leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is subtle, slightly sour and fruity with a combination of sour and regular cherries, leather, hay and funk. Taste is slightly sour, slightly bitter, slightly sweet and fruity with sour cherries, cherry pits, grass, leather and funk. Finish is dry, slightly sour and bitter with cherries.

(Flasche) Es hat eine kirschrote Farbe, ist klar filtriert und es hat eine rosa Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr fruchtig-säuerlich, das Kirscharoma ist süßlich und leicht schwer. Der Geschmack ist anfangs adstringierend, alkoholisch und leicht erdig/muffig, geht dann in eine stärkere Säure über. Im Kopf und retronasal ist wieder das Kirscharoma. Bittere ist nicht vorhanden und es ist sehr stark karbonisiert. Zusammengefasst; aromatisch, spritzig und lecker.

rodenbach99 (4208) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
Bouteille de 37,5cl. Millésime 2008. Surprenante robe rouge foncé presque brune avec une mousse rose peu durable. Le nez est composé de griottes, cerises avec les arômes caractéristique des levures sauvages des environ de Bruxelles. La bière en bouche déploie toute sa splendeur avec ses saveurs de griottes en pot (on dirait le jus du pot), elle est acide mais pas trop car il y a une certaine rondeur. La finale est sur les cerises.

SlovakSniper (5075) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
(37.5 cl, 2008, courtoisie de rodenbach99) Une tête rose qui disparaît rapidement. Une robe rouge très foncée, de fière allure. Un nez attaqué par des griottes et du vieux lambic avec une bonne fermentation sauvage et des notes citriques. Une touche boisé, quelque chose qui me fait penser à du bois mouillé. Une touche de terre humide, sans doute. Des saveurs plus ou moins intense en rusticité. Un profil gustatif davantage sur les fruits. Des notes douces qui s’étalent avec délicatesse. Une bouche surprenante, de moyenne densité et traversée par de fines bulles. Une texture à la limite huileuse. Une finale surette qui transporte des notes fruitées et boisées.

On tap. Pours hazy dark redish with a fluffy pink head. The aroma is dominated by sweet and sour cherries along with some tartness, barnyardy notes, oak, vinegar, weak stable, unripe strawberries and some weak brett. Taste is weak vitamins/minerals, sour vherries, woody notes, barnyard, unripe strawberries, some weak lacto acidic notes, cherry jam, raspberries and tartness. Actually quite creamy in the mouthfeel.
