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 !

2007 vintge bottle. Cherry red with thck pink head, beautiful. Subtle aroma of citrus, cherries, hint of wet leather. Taste tangy, dry, crisp sourness, cherries, cereal, hay, citrus, light spicy almond bitterness. Dry and lightly sour finish. Although quite sour drinks very well.

fata2683 (2175) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2010
bottle thanks to awiseman01, pours dark purple with a medium white head that remains for a while. Nose is outstanding, earthy wood and tart cherries and rhubarb mix leaving a tart but sweet smelling aroma. Flavor is tart and dry through and through, some cherry skin, tart lemon, thin acidic notes and boatloads of barnyard funk. Enjoyable.

koekiesbakker (89) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2010
Way better than the normal kriek. Sour with cherry aroma and taste, not artificial like the kriek. Little bit of funk going on. Very drinkable, great with cheese.

NosirIwont (2202) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2010
Hand tapped on plastic bottle 2 weeks prior to tasting. Pours a hazy deep red colour with a small pale head. Aroma is fruity; mostly cherry bordering cherry sauce. A bit spicy and a bit of wet dog notes as well. Flavour is sour with cherry sauce notes. Dry, sour finish. A decent beer. 25.09.10.

Bottled 375ml. Pinkish head. Great inviting nose. Deeply delicious taste. A top notch kriek. A lot better than the regular kriek from Boon.

10/9/10. Thanks Coleman! Somewhat unidentifiable sour aroma with a big tart flavor that’s mostly just tart and not much going on.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - SEP 28, 2010
Bella kriek, al naso molto presente la ciliegia, in bocca l’acidità fuga ogni sospetto, è proprio "à l’ancienne".

The aroma of this kriek, bought on tap, was alarming - the word fart comes to mind. The taste wasn’t as bad, but it’s hard to enjoy that, when you’re focusing on ignoring the smell. I’m sorry to say that this is another misfire from lambic guru Boon.
