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 !

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2007 Bottle at spontanous weekend. Aroma is straight up grassy fresh lambic funk noteable tart berry character, minimal cherry. Taste is pluckering, not too sour, more tart lambic funk, again slight hints at cherrys. A good drinkable kriek. Rerate: Whole bottle at home. has been settling for a good while now, gloreous dark rd, crystal clear colour, with pink head. Aroma is apple lambic funk, yea ha, amazing notable sweeter cherry hints. Taste is funky and the cherry sneaks up on you in the finish and is so intence id think it was slightly sweetened. But its not and its amazing and i want to sit with my french cheese and bacon and onion bread and go mmmmmmmmmm.

poured into champagne glass... ok, as I was told 75% of this is aged 3 plus beers, then they blend it to a young blend, so a three year old mixed with a 1 year old, then they ferment it again with fruit... ok, I respect the process.. pours a clear dark red with spritzy pink head.. sweet mostly sour aroma... fruity tinge.. sour on the taste, thicker than the look, flat on the finish.. this Lambeec(julie) is more traditional, defintly a flat sour taste but fruit cherries is prevalent...

Bottle courtesy of aspidites at the Sacramento Beer and Brew Fest. Aroma was lightly acidic, sour cherries, vinegary, light funk with some subtle wood notes floating about. Appearance was reddish/pink in color, bubbly with a thin pink bubbly head. Flavor was fruity, almost candy like. It reminded me of a sour cherry candy I had when I was kid called Cherry Chan’s. Almost like a cherry version of a Lemonhead. Anyways, fruity taste, vinegary, and light funk. A good beer.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle, 375ml corked. Copper-golden body, not completely free of sediments, with a nice off-white head. Cellar, cherries and sourness in the aroma. Would like more cherries though. Cherries and cellar and a little citrusy sourness in the flavor. A bit thin body. Cellary finish with almond and cherry. I was actually a bit disappointed with this one. It’s not bad, just the kind of beer that fits thirteen on a dozen. If that is possible with lambics... Rating: 7-4-7-3-14-3.5. (070526)

Bottle, 37,5cl thx to Maria. It pours a goldenish red body with an off-white head. Quite hazy. Barnyardish, slightly lemony aroma with berries and horseblanket. Citric, cherryish flavor with redcurrant and a little sweetness, far from enough sweetness to make it balanced. Luckily. Astringent in the mouth, teeth- and palate-cleansing, and a sour finish with some berry flavors. Quite lovely one, and giving a better impression than last time. (080412)

(Bottle 37,5 cl) Courtesy of Grovlam. Vintage 2004. Pours a very pretty, hazy reddish with a small, pinkish head. Very sour aroma where the cherries are barely felt. Medium body with very dry notes of cherry but not really overly sour. There’s a vague fusty edge. Nice one. 290607

Bright cherry-red color with a thin but somewhat sticky pink ring of foam on the surface. Funky, sour, mouthwatering cherry candy aroma with a hint of acetic acid, sour citrus fruits, and a bit of grainyness. Super sharp, sour flavors with a lot of woody mustiness, sour cherries, Fizzy, soft, champagne-like mouthfeel with a dry and slightly astringent finish. Great stuff, super easy to drink... very addictive!

From 37.5 cL bottle. Pours rosa with a light purple head. Aroma is sour cherries, very lovely and inviting and slight spiced. Flavour is very dry cherry sour. Immensely great brew.

Bottle 2004. Pours a deep muddy red with a funny-looking pink head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with plenty of cherries to go around. Flavour is sour with a clear definition of the berries - there is some barn and wood in there as well. Not my favourite lambic.
