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 !

Torrefacto (575) - 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 (347) - 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.

SimonTja (276) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
Pink reddish with a pink head. Aroma is black cherries, some barnyard, some sourness. Taste is upfront quite fruity, mixed with a perfect pitch of sourness and then a very complex hay-barnyard finish. Very nice and very elegant.
