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 !

Bottle. Dark red with sediment. Dark sour cherries, funk, barnyard in the aroma. Body is lightish. Dark cherries, funk and malts. Cleansing acidity, but not that sour. A bit of woody notes. Nice darker old kriek.

Vond dit allesbehalve een verrijkend bier. De Kriek proefde echt heel plakkerig in de mond, kriek hoort dorstlessend te zijn maar ik kreeg hier enkel dorst van.

lillunken (61) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2015
Tapp på norrlands, Uppsala. Mörkröd färg, utan skum. Doftar körsbärskärnor och lite sötma. Inte så sur i smaken utan det är mest körsbär som märks av, med svagt sur och söt avslutning.

Foffern (1467) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle at home. Vintage 2014. Pours a clear, deep red color with a small, pink head. Sweet aroma of sweet cherries, cherry candy, lemon juice, oak, barn yard and some cinnamon. Equal sour and sweet flavor with additional note of earth. Has a silky mouth feel, and a surprisingly mellow berry bitterness. A well-balanced, tasteful and easy-drinking kriek.

mecafilo (151) - Perugia, ITALY - AUG 28, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2015 On tap @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a deep, rich red colour; magnificent! Aroma is very rich in fruit, especially (obviously) cherry; good, but faint. Taste is quite heavy sweet, good. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.

Lukasmh (714) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2015
Tap. Pours clear deeo rubin red with creamy oink head. Aroma is packed with cherrie candy and marzipan. Funky brett, red berries, leather and yam. Slight grainy. Sour and tart apples, red ripe apples, winegum and grapes. Taste is more sour, sour cherries, still some candy, apples, lang awesome aromatic finish. Reminds me of kirsebærsovs. Sweet, yam, almonds, oaky vanilla and marzipan, wrapped in some good old funky wild yeast and barnyard. Very smooth body with dry finish. Really clean and deep ripe cherrie taste. This is liquid candy,
