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 !

Lund SB, Bangatan flaska. Fantastisk arom av körsbär hallon, rosa rött skum. Torr frisk frukt champagne. Fin med chokladglass. Inget för mass om man nu skulle ha råd. Vacker helhet.

Jedynym Kriekiem, jakiego do tej pory próbowałem, był ten od Lindemansa... Przykład bardzo dostępny i... komercyjny... Tutaj już mamy poziom wyżej! Okazuje się jednak, że Boon Kriek jest dla bardziej wprawionych piwoszy. Nie smakuje on tak przyjemnie i delikatnie jak wspomniany wcześniej. Aromat i smak kwaśno-gorzkich wiśni jest dość zaskakujący. Żadnej słodyczy... Piwo leżakowało w dębowych beczkach, jest niepasteryzowane, niefiltrowane, nie dosładzane, bez sztucznych barwników i aromatów a także konserwantów. Brzmi świetnie. I tak chyba smakuje prawdziwy owocowy lambic! Z pewnością będę próbował innych przedstawicieli gatunku, gdyż styl bardzo mnie zaciekawił. Oceniłem dość skromnie, ponieważ nie smakowało mi tak, jak tego oczekiwałem (Lindemans). Myślę jednak, że styl musi mi się "uleżeć", trzeba mi doświadczenia i wtedy świat lambiców stanie się bardziej przyjazny!
