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 !

Aroma: Dry aroma of dominating cherry, subtle horse blanket, nothing too complex. Appearance: Dark red coloured body, pink frothy head. Taste: Mostly cherries and raspberry, very sweet for typical kriek, but just fine, medium bitter. Overall: Really drinkable beer, perfect for Oude Kriek beginners.

Fules (832) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - OCT 6, 2016
(2014-es évjárat) Közepes, rózsaszín, szellős, nem túl hosszú hab, sötét bordó szín. Illata vadélesztős, meggyes. Vad savanyúval indít (naná, 40% meggy!), majd fokozatosan előbukkan a lambic animális, vadélesztős ízvilága, ami egyébként nem túl markáns. Lecsengése közepesen hosszú, és érdekes módon inkább a lambic viszi a prímet, a meggy csak fanyarságot ad. Közepesen testes, erősen szénsavas, keserűje csak meggytől származik. Kicsit sok a savanyú, de egyébkén nagyon finom.

AwaKe (251) - Laval, CANADA - OCT 3, 2016
En bouteille, cuvée 2015 bu en octobre 2016. Couleur rouge vin opaque, fine mousse rose. Arômes de cerises sauvages assez fraiche et de barriques. En bouche beaucoup de bois de cerisier, barrique. L'acidité sur les joues révèle quant à eux les cerises. Le côté boisé décele aussi une certaine amertume un peu désagréable, qui rappel un jus d'orange après s'être brossé les dents. Certainement une bière pour les grandes occasions. À partager ou à boire en format 375ml. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (11365) - Tromsř, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2016
375ml corked bottle, 2014 á l’Ancienne version, bought at Vinmonopolet Honningsvĺg. A good shot followed by smoke when opened. Noisy pink coloured head to a deep, dark red coloured body. Dry aroma of cherry and raspberry peels. Smooth, tart and sweet taste of cherry, raspberry and wood added by a backdrop of yeast. Lingering ending, tart and sweet. Fine bodied. Quite enjoying (Hotel room, Honningsvĺg 17.09.2016).
