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.

IlGagario (109) - Modena, ITALY - JUN 27, 2016
On tap. Colore rosso rubino con corta schiuma compatta. Olfatto vinoso appena acetico e di muschio. Carbonazione flat. Aroma finemente citrico, tarty, vinoso leggermente acetico, di fragola, ciliegia muschio, fiori e nota dolce balsamica come di tenue camomilla. Gusto decisamente secco, dolce velato d’acido, molto ben ristretto. Corpo leggero, trama succosa e vinosa secca. Ottima.

mariuspoenari (1215) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2016
Samled at Beertemple. Dark ruby pour, clear, with a fine pinkish head. Smells like macerated cherries and lambic funk. The taste is light sour and sweet, with strong cherry notes. Light carbnation, light body and a sweet and sour fruity aftertaste.

Dark ruby color. HIgher carbonation. Aromas of cherries and funky farmhouse. Dryish beer, much more than expected. Cherry flavor is not a kick in the face, but a nice backbone to the lambic base. Lots of fruitiness in the start. Spritzy, sour in a refreshing way. Medium long finish with notes of grapefruit and alcohol. Very tasty. An easy lambic to cut your teeth on.

It is the best lambic I had drunk. It has a very rich flavor and its’s not too sour. In my opinion the taste of this beer is like a taste of a great red wine.

On tap at hopaholoc. Red colour, medium pink head. Nose and taste is sour cherry with some champagne. Very sinilar to voila. Uncommon, and not very outstanding. A cherry soft drink.

tfredvik (1670) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2016
Pours a cloudy deep red body with a pink head that ends up as a fully covering film. Strong aroma of lots and lots of cherries upon a funky barnyard background. Strong flavour that is of course dominated by cherries, but there are also some raspberries in the back, together with a generic fruitiness. The funk is not overwhelming, but is instead a nice companion to the fruit. Light sweet taste, moderate to light acidity. Pretty long-lasting finish. Medium body, dry and with a rather lively carbonation. Nice!
[37.5 cl bottle, 2012 edition, enjoyed half a lifetime before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]
