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 !

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2008
375 ml bottle. Pours a nice bright violet reddish with a fizzy head- mostly clear body and high carb. Aroma is intensely sour cherry- earthy, cherry pit, a bit pedio like with some earthy leathery musty notes and a ton of acidity. Great intense lactic sourness in here- tons of sour cherry flavor, pedio, bacteria, funky as hell, and just very intense all around ont eh palate with a long lasting intense sour finsih. I keep forgetting how much I love this beer. Gotta find more.

Bottle 37,5 cl RE-tasted on 28.7.’08 at home (bought Vanden Bussche). Hazy dark rd color, with medium pinkisch head. Aroma lambic, berry and cherry character. Full body. Taste sour but not too sour, lambic at cherrys. Good drinkable kriek.

Capa (2080) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUL 27, 2008
1998 bottle drank July 25, 2008, thanks TimE. Glowing red color. Tart cherries with a musty, sweet aroma. It seems the cherries have died down a bit over the years, but that makes this easier to drink, actually. Sour, cherry, funky, acidic, some wood, as well. Thoroughly enjoyed this one, though I’ll bet it peaked a couple years back.

375mL bottle, courtesy of bwkrieger. Thanks, Brian! Pours a dark cherry / maroon color; light-pink head with decent retention and solid, fine-bubbled lacing. Lots of funk, sour dark cherries, citrus, and jaw-clenching acidity in the aroma; good levels of complexity, horseblanket, and sourness; mouthwatering. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lively carbonation; lots of clenching sourness and citrus acidity at the front; ripe black cherries, lemons, and a touch of toasted oakiness at the core; nicely composed, well-soured kriek. Lengthy, sour finish: loads of lasting tartness, dark cherries (more of a black cherry character than any other kriek I can think of), and dry citrus.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Courtesy of kmweaver. Hazy maroon body with a medium-sized pink head. Cheesy nose with horseblanket and sour cheeries. The flavor is moderately sour with light to moderate sweetness. Lots of rich cherry and almond taste with salty blue cheese, lemon and yogurt. Medium body is round with sparkling carbonation.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Cloudy deep red pour with a finger thick pink head that disipates quickly. Aroma of tart funky cherries with strong barn yard overtones. Very sour taste with faint cherry. Tart as well. A touch of apricot as well as a fresh floral essence. Tingly on the mouth.
