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 !

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle year 2004 edition. The first smell is a little bit sweet (cherries), then it gets really heavy sour. The body is dark red, the head is light red and very small, it disappears fast. The taste is very sour and refreshing, normal long duration. Nearly no carbonation, rather dry with a very astringent finish, medium body.

JoeinDahlem (1342) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2008
Pleasant and tart lambic thatís more juicy than funky. And Iím OK with that. Half-bottle pours a deep maroon with pink bubbles that disappear quickly. Nose full of sour cherry and unripe lemon. Flavor is moderately sour, with more cherry than citrus, big fruit. Feels tannic but lively in the mouth. I like this more as a sipper or aperitif than something to throw back and drink with a meal. Possibly underrated for its lack of funk. This is a finer drink.

auerbrau (3178) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 6, 2008
30.03.2026. SB46. 355mL Bottle. Lightly medicinal cotton and cherries. Plenty of light funk comes through. Some tree bark and peach stems. A drop of sweetness and general fruit. A bit of pie. Pours a beautifully clear vermilion, with a rose-tinted head sparsely cornering the edges of the class. Flavor is rich and deep. Very forward fruit. Canned pie cherries, light black cherry syrup, and pie crust. A heavy, forward cherry flavor. Definitely not sticky or cloying, but it dominates the beer, as it should. The funk that was in the nose has diminishes to carrying some higher alcohols into the nostrils. Nicely sour and dry. Balanced between fruit and cottony lambic character. The flavor are a little restrained for me, and the pie-like cherry flavor masks too much of the lambic for my tastes, but itís all clean, bright and delightful. Superbly soft.

Plovmand (6603) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle year 2000 edition. Pours hazy pink with medium pink head. Great aroma og cherry and alcohol mixed with the sourness. Cherries and green aplles in the mouth and to my taste the sourness and the sweetness is perfectly mixed. I loved it.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2008
Small head pink head. Strong cherry aroma and some grenadine in the background. Very fruity flavor with the nice tartness one can expect from a good Oude Kriek. Green apples, citrus on top of the cherry flavors. Some woody notes.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle. My first whiff made me think "funky!" Nice tartness, but not just cherry juice. Good mustiness, a little woodiness, and even some lemoniness on top of the cherries. Neither overly sweet nor overly tart. Good balance. Really enjoyed this one.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 25, 2008
Nice red color and a creamy head. The aroma has notes of cherries, yeast and sourness. The flavour is sourish with hints of vinegar, yeast and nice, sour cherries, that develops into notes of red currant.
