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 !

Melker (253) - Göteborg, - JUN 12, 2013
Nice red colour. Huge pink and soapy head. Aroma of marzipan (a lot of marzipan), cherry, hay. Dry taste. Sour of course. Not that much cherry in the taste, a little bit earthy. Long and dry aftertaste. Not my kind of beer, didn’t even drink the whole bottle..

Rune (11120) - 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).

TEJA (2420) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle from systembolaget Sweden. Big pink lasting head. Light clowdy dark wine colored beer. Aroma from cherry pits and still fresh cherry aroma and taste. Fresh acidity and balanced fruit.
