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 !

27-MAY-2011,bottle @Copenhagen Beerfestival. Lovely red with pinkish head. Fine cherry taste. Tart, long, and fresh. A little barnyad kicks in, but mostly just vinegar and cherries. Very small bubbles makes this really easy drinking.

teorn88 (5581) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2011
37,5cl bottle. 2006 vintage. Pours deep ruby color, cannot see trough the glass, with a meidum rose head. Aroma is definitely sour cherries, horseblankets, white wine and some grassy-lemony aromas. Taste is quite acidic with a nice fruity presence. Little skunk and grassy notes. Very nice balance between fruity tart cherries notes and traditional lamic acidity. Body is medium with lively carbonation.

Shared bottle courtesy of tarjei. Clear red with a pink creamy head that disappates. Apples, raspberries, cherries and other berries in the aroma. Acidic fresh flavor with notes of berries and vinegar. Astringent. Medium bodied and a dry finish.

jgb9348 (5432) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2011
2008 Bottle sampled in early 2011. Great deep red coloured body with a strong hazy dark ruby glow and a thick fast-dying pink head. Simply beautiful. Aroma of pungent cherries, sour grapes, yeast and way more sour flavours - great and mouth-watering! Medium-bodied; Strong effervescence with a great pungent sour flavour at first with grapes and a little yeast behind with a BIG mouthful of sour cherries, light grapes and a good sweetnes for the style. Aftertaste pungent from the sourness with a good cherry sweetness that lasts a long time. Overall, easily one of the best beers I’ve had in Germany, Belgium and Holland this trip - a great beer that should be sampled by everyone! I sampled this 37,5 cL ’split’ bottle purchased from Cracked Kettle in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on 03-January-2011 for €4,65 sampled later in the day from my hotel room in Amsterdam, when I couldn’t find this beer at all in the whole of Bruxelles. Best by date of 21-January-2030!

chibuck (3504) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2011
This beer pours a deep red almost light purple with a light pink head. there is minimal lacing. It smells very tart, slight notes of cherry and alcohol. This beer is exceedintly tart from start to finish. I wish there was a touch of sweetness and it would take this from an average to outstanding lambic
