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 !

kermis (5585) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle shared at De Paas. Pours clear red with a moderate pink head. Aroma of sweet cherrie with a little tartness. Flavour is over moderate sweet and light acidic. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Just a shame it’s sweetened..

Buongiorgio00 (858) - - JUN 7, 2014
Una kriek indimenticabile, con una forte presenza di ciliegia perfettamente bilanciata con l’acidità astringente e allo stesso tempo ammorbidita. La sensazione sul palato è paradisiaca!

Torrefacto (611) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 23, 2014
Color rubí pálido con espuma rosada ligera aunque duradera. Aromas equilibrados de madera, brett. y fruta roja dulce. Cuerpo medio alto con inicio afrutado dulce y ácido que combina bien con la madera y el brett. y el final seco. El regusto de cereza es muy intenso y duradero. Riquísima.

Icedwarf (388) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014
Donker rozerood troebel bier met gemiddeld schuim. Smaak is zuur en droog met duidelijke kriek smaak. Blijft redelijk lang hangen. Vanwege de zurige smaak niet echt mijn favoriet.
