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 !

Pours blood orange into a tumbler. Pink head with good retention recedes to skim surface leaving no lacing. Funk and cherry aromas. Sweet cherry upfront turning sour in the lasting sour funk finish.

Scopey (11525) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2011
2007 Bottle from Kris Wines. It pours deep ruby red, with a thin fizzy pink head and lively carbonation. The nose is ripe cherry, nutmeg, cinnamon, glazier cherry and brown sugar. The taste is initially tart lemon, then wood, cherry skin and apple skin with ripe cherry in the finish. The cherry is not as obvious as expected and the beer has a tangy sourness about it that leaves the mouth pleasantly numb. Not a particularly complex beer, but every drinkable stuff.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2015 (2007 Vintage corked bottle 330ml) Woahfucking God the nose is damn god like , the age on this has made it like brett in a sea of funky cherry . Poured out the same colour as the bottle lable ... god its tart , refreshing -dry as anything , complex cherry stone bitterness , rural funk .. Damn, the ageing has made this a motherfucken beautiful kriek... Any sweetness is drowned by waves of sour cherry .
