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 !

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 (6164) - 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 (6088) - 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.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2007
Clear ruby with a fluffy pink head. Very fresh, almost ’in your face’ cherry aroma, which makes it a touch one-dimensional... leaving only a tiny bit of musk and tartness to enjoy. Simple body and flavour (for a lambic) lightly tart, pretty fruity, but less so than the aroma... pretty dry and vineous. Very good without being anything outstanding

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2007
37.5 cl bottle at Oude Arsenaal. BB 08/2026. Crystal clear, bright ruby red with a thick creamy pink head that actually sticks around. Bright fruity aroma, lots of sweet cherry and cherry skin tannins. Much less citrus and acid that other krieks, but it still has an authentic dustiness. Herbal character and a touch of black currant fruitiness. Soft lactic sourness that just cuts through the inherent fruity sweetness. Quite rich tasting with a good balance of soft fruit, dusty yeast and mild lactic tartness. Soft finish. Another great brew.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Bottle at Oud Arsenaal, vintage 2003. A flimsy and lackluster representation of the style. Rich, sweetened honey aroma. A hint of funk. Overcarbonated, lightly sour. Minerals, strawberry and raspberry, metals. A bit spongy, rocky. Blech.

Bullit (3975) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 23, 2007
Red colour, short pink head. Aroma has cherry, marsipan and some sourness. Cherry fruits in flavour. Lots of sourness and carbonation, but ends sweet. Nice.

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Lovely color is inviting. Mild, dry, and fruit forward in nose and taste. But the Boon lambic is not sour enough for me.
