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 !

mcberko (7214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a pinkish ruby red with a medium pink head. Aroma brings out lots of cherries and some slight funk. Flavour brings out a nice mix of tart cherries and dry funk – no residual cherries like the regular shitty Boon Kriek. This is a pure authentic one. On the funkiest side for a cherry lambic, which is how I like it. Wonderful stuff.

Sissio (715) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUN 12, 2014
On tap at Birratrovo in Como I was expecting something more sweet and sour. Surprised by this beer. Very cherry but not too sweet and absolutely not sour

Lawger (124) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a deep ruby red, like a red burgundy wine but cloudy. The head is thick and pinkish red. The aroma is dominated by tart cherries, gingerbread, some brett and brie de meaux. The flavour is freshly acidic but not too tart. Just a hint of cherries and brett in the mouth. Refreshing and tasty, not as difficult to enjoy as many other lambics. Very nice, will try to cellar a few to see if they get more funky.

kermis (5733) - 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 (910) - - 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 (653) - 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.

Bottle. Clear red with a small pink head. Cherries, light wood, light earthy, leather, light dusty, light almond. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and light sour. Ok, but not a bit muted and dull.

Icedwarf (424) - 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.
