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 !

12.7oz, Best by 22.__.12 (couldn’t read the date). Clear burgundy with a one finger pink fizzy head, fading to a ring very quickly. Wow, this smells exactly like something, but I can’t place it at all. Unmistakable aroma of fresh cherries--more specifically, the pit and flesh--with some funky sourness in the background. There is also a bit of leather. Flavor changes slightly with the same type of cherries (the dark ones you find in produce at the grocery store, I dunno the variety) though a little less sweet with tons of tartness and acidity. Bone dry woody finish. Highly carbonated with a light to medium body. Definitely one of the better (and sour) fruit lambics I’ve had.

bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2008
Finally can taste some sourness, thought I couldn’t pick it up anymore. Red body with little head, Get a lot of oak in the nose and the taste is quite tart , dry and a lot of cherries.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2008
Deep red beer with meidum pink head. Sour aroma with sweet cherries to balance it. Sour woody flavor with somewhat unatural cherries and typical brett notes. Finishes dry and lacks complexity.

ilovedarkbeer (2233) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2007
My first REAL lambic. Pours a blood red color that is clean and has some sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Head is fizzy and pink. Smells of cherries and some barnyard funk. Taste is funky sour, sweet, and of cherries and wheat. Personally I have not yet acclumated my palate with the taste of wild yeast but I can still tell this is a quality brew.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a hazy ruby hue witha small pink/white head. Nose of sour cherry, yeast, champaign and mild other red fruits. Initial taste of fizzy tart cherry which dominates the palate leaving this very one dimensional. Mild tartness on the sides of the mouth. Finish fades quickly with chalky dry finish. Medium body. Enjoyable but looking for more out of this one. $7.99 a bottle.

downender (6236) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2007
Bottle from Hopduvel, Gent. Bright, vivid red with a big, pink head. Strong, tart cherry aroma with yeast and almonds. Flavour had plenty of cherry with a very dry finish. Very good.

after4ever (6111) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2007
375. Pours a deep ruddy brown with a sudsy, bubbly pink froth for a head. Super intense sour cherry nose blasts you from arm’s length, but settles down to a more palatable tart smackeriness after it aerates for a couple minutes. Medium body; tingly, almost fizzy carb. Sharp cherry dominates the flavor profile all the way through. Sour lingering finish. Tasty.

Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2007
I found it to be much better than the Lindemans offerings that tend to be the most prevalent in shops around here. The nose was tart, acidic, winey, sour, and wild-yeasty; "Medicinal, like the dentist’s office, yet not totally unpleasant." However, it doesn’t especially taste acidic even though the nose would have you think it would. It tastes, basically, like you’re sucking on cherry pits. Pairs quite well with pistachios and hazelnuts.
