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 (201) - 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, didnít even drink the whole bottle..

klippx (6) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2014 does not count
Unsweetened, very very sour, more like a sour wine than a beer. Nice pink foam. Great cherry, good craftsmanship but oh so sour. My undeveloped taste buds prefer Timmermans.

Timvim (48) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle @ Midsummer party 20140621. Nice deep red color, sparkling. Aroma of cherries, funk, bitter almonds and yoghurt. Taste is similar, quite sweet and not very offensive. I would have wanted more sourness and less sweetness. Still a descent kriek.

HopRedHead (341) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2014
Pours beetroot red with a bright pink head. Heavy, creamy lacing. Obvious aroma of sour cherries, sweet plums, straw and a touch of sulphur. Flavours arenít too sour; immediate cherries and candied berries, citrus peel and a very smooth sourness. Nice dry finish. Gets a lot sweeter as it warms, maybe a touch too sweet for me.

maneliquor (2995) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Amazing looking beer - right up there with the best Iíve seen. A bright and vivid pink head sits atop a clear ruby red body. Nose is mild funk, quite potent horse blanket and tarty cherries with an underlying woodiness. Taste is a lot sweeter than the nose gives off with a moderate sugar driven note throughout while sweet and tarty red cherries follow through to the finish. Almost raspberry like juiciness. The sourness builds for a little bit but is never too in-your-face. Juicy and quite sweet with light sourness. Well made beer

mcberko (5942) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a pinkish ruby red with a medium pink head. Aroma brings out lots of cherries and some slight funk. Flavour brings out a nice mix of tart cherries and dry funk Ė no residual cherries like the regular shitty Boon Kriek. This is a pure authentic one. On the funkiest side for a cherry lambic, which is how I like it. Wonderful stuff.

Sissio (526) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUN 12, 2014
On tap at Birratrovo in Como I was expecting something more sweet and sour. Surprised by this beer. Very cherry but not too sweet and absolutely not sour

Lawger (81) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a deep ruby red, like a red burgundy wine but cloudy. The head is thick and pinkish red. The aroma is dominated by tart cherries, gingerbread, some brett and brie de meaux. The flavour is freshly acidic but not too tart. Just a hint of cherries and brett in the mouth. Refreshing and tasty, not as difficult to enjoy as many other lambics. Very nice, will try to cellar a few to see if they get more funky.

kermis (4752) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle shared at De Paas. Pours clear red with a moderate pink head. Aroma of sweet cherrie with a little tartness. Flavour is over moderate sweet and light acidic. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Just a shame itís sweetened..

Buongiorgio00 (720) - - JUN 7, 2014
Una kriek indimenticabile, con una forte presenza di ciliegia perfettamente bilanciata con líaciditŗ astringente e allo stesso tempo ammorbidita. La sensazione sul palato Ť paradisiaca!
