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 !

olsvammel (5744) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle at Nütnigenough in Brussels. It poured a dark red liquid with a pale pink head. Berry and fruity smell with cherries and barn yard. Sour and berry taste with cherries and also some sweetness. Not an overly sour lambic, actually somewhere between the sour and the sweet. Nice beer.

magsinva (1100) - Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle - liquor express - pours a clear ruby with a white head. Aroma is a mild cherry. Taste is sour, but mellow, not so biting as a younger lambic would be. Interesting.

pivnizub (10029) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2011
Bottle (vintage 2000): Reddish-amber coloured, hazy, some floaties visible, sourish-cellary nose with a pronounced almondy cherry fruitiness; light to medium bodied, pretty soft MF, moderate sourish-sweet flavour; lingering - as well - sourish-sweet finish, cherries and cellary flavours detectable. A nice fruit-beer......

mile (3771) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2011
Bottle. Dark reddish color, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, sweetish and very fruity aroma with dark berries – cherries, sourness. Body is medium, sweetish and fruity flavor, cherries and sourness. Finish is average, lightly sweetish and very sour, some cherries and light fruitiness. Kriek with nice cherry/fruity sourness especially in the aroma. Flavor has bit too much sourness – aroma and flavor are not in balance.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2011
Vintage 2000! Light hazy brown red coloured with lots of carbonation and a medium dence white head. Light fruity hinted aroma with some slight herby touches. Full palate. Finish is sour fruity, little bit herby/peppery with a dry sweet sour cherry ending. Not to sharp, nicely balanced.

olio (9010) - 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.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014
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 (7680) - 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.

Countbeer (5983) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle: 2006: Medium dark pink head turns quick into a lacing, on top of a hazy ruby pink colored beer. Smell barnyard, yeast, bacteria, wood, dried hops and dried herbs. Taste wood, yeast, barnyard, sour, a slight hint of red fruit, some dried hops and light nasty malts. Taste the lambic very well. Aftertaste of sour and some hints of red fruits. Low carbo, soft tingly mouthfeel, medium light watery body and a light watery texture.

Hermod (6255) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2011
37,5cl bottle, vintage 2006. Poured cherry red with a pink head. Sour cherry aroma with some lactic and woody notes. Fruity, soury flavor, lots of cherries. Dry finish. Very enjoyable, would be nice to compare it to some older version.
