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 !

olio (8882) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
375 ml bottle of 2008 vintage.
Pours beautiful hazy red with medium pink head. Aroma is cherries, some fruits, a bit strawberries and sugar. Flavour is cherries, strawberries, distant notes of honey and some spices. Medium sourness and a bit too thin. Enjoyable nonetheless.

38 cl bottle, 2008 vintage. BBE 21.01.2030
Aroma is rather weird for an oude kriek. It is sour, but has just small amount of cherries. It is also a bit sweaty and has earthy notes. Flavour is sour with surprisingly small amount of cherry aroma. Lots of cardamom instead of that, just like in Mort Subite Oude Kriek. Too close to a juice and the cardamom (or cinnamon?) does not fit here. Could also be more sour. Adding the yeast gives more sourness, but it also raises the berry-like aromas and gives some harsh bitterness to the flavour.

lusikka (7649) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
375 ml bottle. 2008 version.
Pours a beautiful a deep red colour with a foamy pink head. Aroma of leather, mandarin orange, aged cherries and something sweet. Flavour of sour and ripe cherries, cherry juice, spices, mandarin orange, lemon and some wet wood. Not too much carbonation. Finish of cherries and some mandarin orange. Somewhat spicy as well. Too thin and a bit too juice-like but very drinkable.
