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 !

Dark red pour with a pink head. Nice rich cherry aroma with plenty of fruit and cherry skin notes. Some nice lactic tartness, a bit of grass, a mild musty funk, and some red fruits. A huge cherry character on the palate. Nice tartness, lemon zest, and musty funk. Great cherry skin, slight sweetness, with a dry finish.

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 (1636) - 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]

Hamirubi (509) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2016
37.5cl bottle at home (13 II 2016), shared with the Meetjeslandse Bierproevers. Red to dark red, gloomy brew with minimal pinkish collar. The nose has lots of tart and wood. The taste is less creamy than I expected - a vanilla, creamy sensation I most often have with Boon lambic fruits. Dry. The sweetness and sourness of the cherries and geuze makes for a perfect combination, resulting in a very tasteful, very sour oak casked kriek. Lovely!

Bottle. Dark ruby colour with lasting pink head. Aroma is cherry and some yeast. Taste is sour cherry with some wood/oak. High carbonation. Even if its not "my style" its no problem admit this is a quality brew!
