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 !

brokensail (13603) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
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.

mecafilo (141) - Perugia, ITALY - AUG 28, 2015
On tap @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Aroma is very rich in fruit, especially (obviously) cherry; good, but faint. Taste is quite heavy sweet, good. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.

Lukasmh (606) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2015
Tap. Pours clear deeo rubin red with creamy oink head. Aroma is packed with cherrie candy and marzipan. Funky brett, red berries, leather and yam. Slight grainy. Sour and tart apples, red ripe apples, winegum and grapes. Taste is more sour, sour cherries, still some candy, apples, lang awesome aromatic finish. Reminds me of kirsebærsovs. Sweet, yam, almonds, oaky vanilla and marzipan, wrapped in some good old funky wild yeast and barnyard. Very smooth body with dry finish. Really clean and deep ripe cherrie taste. This is liquid candy,

Towey1989 (718) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Keg at Brewdog Manchester. A clear red colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of tart cherries, subtle plum, marzipan, slight vanilla and barnyard yeast. Taste of cherry, marzipan, slight apple, barnyard funk, some wood and subtle acidic tartness. Medium bodied and and an oily texture. A dry, cherry tartness in the finish. Great array of flavours and smells, sweet at first then tart and slightly acidic in the close. A tasty kriek, I enjoyed it.

Cristobal37 (391) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Big wild yeast funky wine aroma. Quite tart with a hint of cherry and maybe vanilla here and there. Big lambic. This is what I think of when I here lambic. Lots of tart fizzy beer lingers with grape and flowery notes. Not bad but not my favorite eithet. The marriage parfait from Boon was better.
