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 !

Melker (222) - Varberg, - 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..

Attractive ruby color and medium dark pink head. Lingering cherry aroma, rather well balanced taste with mild bitterness. Decent drink for ladies.

BeerandBlues2 (10253) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle at Delirium Café. Pours lightly hazy ruby with a medium, frothy pink head, medium retention with spare lacing. Aroma is tart cherries, light earthy malt and stale hops with barnyard yeast notes. Flavor is sweet and tart cherries, supporting malt, faint hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Flaska systembolaget. 2013. Lysröd kulör med rosa skum. Syrlig doft av söta körsbär och stall. Jordig och syrlig smak med framförallt körsbär men även fuktig jordkällare och citron. Välkolsyrad med torr avslutning.

Tap. Hazy deep red body with an average pink head. Aroma of cherries, lemon and woody notes. Sligtly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, oily to watery texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Fruit Lambic.

Funk fest at friends, wonderful kriek, loaded with dried fruit and tart flavor, not much head and tiny bubbles, very satisfying. Good with cheese platter, finishes slight sweetness and then clean.

Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap at the Bruges Beer Museum in Bruges, Belgium. Pours cherry red with a think pink head and lively carbonation. Aroma of cherry, funk, and sour. Complex flavors of sour cherries, green apple, barnyard, and oak. Mostly sour with only slight sweetness, finishes dry. A wonderful kriek in the traditional style.

Flaska från SB. Mörkt röd med lätt rosa skum. Syrlig arom med röda vinbär och körsbär. Lätt och torr lite toner av körsbär. Trevlig och lättdrucken men lite för vattnig.
