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 (231) - 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..

On tap at Fermentøren, Copenhagen, DK. Unclear deep red with a pink to purple head. The aroma is fruity, cherries, sour yeast. The taste is moderate to high sour first, followed by a hint of sweetness. The palate is rather watery and the fruity finish a bit short.

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.
