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 !

Rött öl med dragning åt lila. Ett bubbligt rosa skum som försvinner ganska snabbt. En bra kombination av citussyra och djupa körsbärstoner i både arom och smak.Även inslag av fat i smaken.

From tap at BeerTempel, Amsterdam. Aroma of tart cherries, lactic, yoghurt, oak, slightly sweet cherries, funk. Flavour is lightly sweet and moderate to medium sour. Body is medium. Much, much better than the regular Kriek.

Gran cerveza, carbonación perfecta, sabor suave acaramelado, notas de frutos ácidos. La verdad es la primera lámbica que tomo pero me ha encantado.

375ml systembolaget. Fick denna från Ann-Sabina som tyckte att det var för mycket bubblor. Jag tyckte den var fin med både doft och smak av körsbär.

From el Cervecero. In Adnams Southwold cup. After dinner. At least I’ve been able to finish this acidic beverage, not like the Cantillon gueuze.

Nonshaugen (337) - Fetsund, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2015
375 ml bottle, Natural cork cap, champagne style. 2014 vintage. This is my very first encounter with the lambic style beers. Oak aged cherries, spontanously fermented by wild yeast is what we’re dealing with here, so let’s dive in. Beautiful dark cherry colour, thin head that dissapears immediately. Aroma is a viny, cherry style. Taste is all about cherries, Carbonation is low, mouthfeel is dry. The Cherry-ish aftertaste is lasting on and on forever. Wow, what an experience!! More cherry liquor than beer in my opinion, but I’m very pleased right now.

ciocanelu (879) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 15, 2015
Hazy burgundy color with pink head. Aroma is extremely cherry forward with a bit of underlying farmhouse funk. Taste starts directly sour, fruity and also a bit bitter. Body is quite light, very effervescent and dry. Very fresh and easy drinking.

Fiston (8) - Cressier, SWITZERLAND - SEP 29, 2015 does not count
Way too acid first. But acidity decrease after a few minutes in the glass, Leave a thick feeling on the palate. But great ruby color.
