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 !

Belgo (154) - Køge, - MAR 2, 2006
375 ml. bottle. Pours a dark cherry red with a nice lasting pink head. Aromas of sweet cherries explode from the glass along with almonds and brett aromas from the lambic. On the palate the sourness is definately there, but there is also a nice sweetness from the fruity taste, not from residual sugar. Finishes of dry and well balanced with a nice soft cherry flavour before it ends with a snap of sourness. Very good.

Samuel214 (217) - SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2016
Flaska från SB, från 2014. Drygt ett och ett halvt år gammal. Röd, disig vätska med rött högt skum. Fruktig, söt doft av körsbär och hallon. Syrlig i smaken, utan att det drar iväg. Körsbär, citronsaft, en väldigt lätt beska. Bra. Jämnat till sig något.
