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 !

Ungstrup (29135) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2003
[Vintage 1998, 5 years old] Sour wild fermented aroma. The color is a clear deep red and it has a bubbly pink fast disappearing head. All the sediment in mine had settled on the cork (must have been stored upside down) - I think that's why it was clear. The flavor is very sour - like a lemon - combined with a weak sweetness and a strong flavor of wild fermentation. It has hints of metal and cherries. It finishes on a dry woody oak note combined with some sourness, that lingers for a long time. A great kriek.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Courtesy of Grovlam. Vintage 2004. Pours a very pretty, hazy reddish with a small, pinkish head. Very sour aroma where the cherries are barely felt. Medium body with very dry notes of cherry but not really overly sour. There’s a vague fusty edge. Nice one. 290607

2000-edition. Red coloured with a huge pink head. Aroma of barnyard, cherries and wood. Nice well balanced acidic flavour of cherries and wood. Dry finish with notes of wood.

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2007
Ruby red colour, not much head. Cherries and wood in aroma. Dry and sour cherries in the flavour along with a big earthyness and some vinegar also mixed in. Pleasant, but lacks something.

omhper (19220) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2004
Bottled. Deep brownish red, rich pink head. Very lemony and fairly acidic, yet rich on sweet cherries. The mouthfeel is short. Pretty good, but lacks the depth of the top krieks.

Hazy cherry red beer, Pretty pink head! Sourish nose. Light dry crisp palate. Super tart cherry, crisp and dry with a dash of acid lemon. A puckery level of sourness. Very dry finish. Has it’s place I guess, but not for me.

Bright ruby color, hazy; big, pink head. Great fruity aroma; cherries, wood, vinegar, cherry kernels. Dry, acetic; aggressive, yet almost smooth; correct fruitness. Very good balance of residual sweetness, sourness, astringency, fruitness. Really interesting.
