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 !

2003 crop. Subtle, pretty, light red color. Big cherry and brett aroma, with basement dust, grass, sweet cherries and nutty stones. Flavor is cherry, minerals (a bit too much), cheesy hops, lemon, lactic acid. Amazing balance, crisp, clean palate. Great.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep almost clear pink with full pinkish head. Aromas are very complex with sour cherry, almond from the pips, oak and plenty of lactic sourness. Just a little funk. Taste is very sour and earthy. Both the cherries and pips do however show through. Very dry finnish. Great beer.

nwiseman (193) - Norwich, Connecticut, USA - DEC 31, 2009
From bottle shared by awiseman. Very pungent aroma with the subtlest hint of cherry. I’m almost in tears after just smelling it. Pours a cloudy ruby with lots of fluffy white head. Very sour on first sip. On second sip, the cherries become more apparent. I’m sure there’s more going on, but its hard to make out through the overpowering sourness. Very sharp on the tongue with lots of carbonation, and not too much of a lingering after taste. A very intense and enjoyable lambic.

Bottle from Keg Liquors in Clarksville. Pours murky strawberry/tomato with thin bubbly pink head. Nose is sour, smarties, tart cherry. Flavor is moderate to strong sour pucker cherry with medium carbonation and sharp relatively quick, smooth finish. Wonderful treat for the occasion.

Vaiz (3986) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2009
Pours a dark purple color with a pink head. Aroma is sharp and slightly leathery, with hints of hay and grass next to some distant cherries. Flavor is overwhelmingly sour and quite dry, in a good way. The cherries are well present in the flavor but not overpowering. Good balance. Quite lively carbonation. Decent long sour finish.

danielst (248) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 13, 2009
2006 vintage: Pours murky dark red with a pinkish head, looks lovely. Limes and overripe cherries in the aroma, oak barrels, pretty strong notes of chlorine and bandaid. Surprisingly watery taste, not too different from their Geuze - pithy and completely dry with a medium to high tartness, flavours of plant leaves and citrus. It seems as if the cherry flavour decreased over time, since they really add an incredible amount of fruits to this. Light alcoholic burn in the throat. Underwhelming.
