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 !

alteregoo (1783) - Kalisz, POLAND - NOV 30, 2017
Piana różowa, obfita, ale sycząca, szybko opada do pierzynki. Barwa ciemno czerwona, opalizująca, z osadem na dnie butelki. W zapachu głównie wiśnie, pestki, stare drewno. Smak również wiśniowy, lekko kwaskowy, lekko winny, delikatnie też słodki (jak czarne, dojrzałe wiśnie), z pestkowo migdałową cierpkością i lekką tanicznością na finiszu. Dość delikatnie, nawet lekko kompotowe w odbiorze.


Bardzo przyswajalne, lekkie piwo, na pewno nie tak agresywne jak czysty lambik, choć zupełnie inne od dosładzanych Lindemansów.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 Deep red / ruby colour with a fruity aroma . Tastes unsurprisingly sour but nic and the cherries complement the taste

Marduk (8502) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 10, 2017
375ml bottle. Deep ruby red color. Medium size, pink head, stays. Sour, old cherries, woody, oak, fruity in aroma. Sour, lots of cherries, some cherry stone effect, fruity, oak and tannins or skins in taste. Dry sour cherries in aftertaste. Dry mouthfeel. Sharp acidity, but at the same time quite mellow. Very solid brew.

thejackpacker (677) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2017
Tap at Akurrat, Stockholm. I enjoyed this a bit but I overall found it way too syrupy. It was very thick and had a lot of festive flavours like cinnamon, nutmeg and deep glacé cherry. For me, it felt almost artificial (which I know it isn't) but not so sure it felt natural like the cantillon beers do so well.

GhostS (527) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - OCT 16, 2017
Aromă intensă, foarte acră și cu multe drojdii sălbatice/din murături, mult malț, compot de vișine învechit, ceva borș acru de casă și tărâțe.

Gust intens, mediu spre puternic acru (practic în totalitate), suc de vișine proaspete stoarse, vișine din compot învechit (se simte atât acreală de vișine proaspete, cât și vișine din compot vechi, foarte plăcută combinație), drojdii sălbatice (de lambic) spre final și în postgust.

Foarte bună și bine făcută, extrem de plăcut și ușoară.

SvanteL (645) - SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2017
Vackert röd med rosa skum. Massor av körsbär i doften, körsbärskärnor och en liten kryddighet. Smaken är körsbärsstinn med mycket kärnkaraktär, liten fin kryddighet åt kanelhållet, aningen trä från fatet, fin balans mellan fruktsötma och syrlighet. En suverän körsbärsöl!

ozzatoadisback (214) - ITALY - SEP 17, 2017
Dark red (indeed looking very much like sour cherry) with a darkish pink/light purple head. Overall quite small, decent retention and some lacing. Aroma is mainly sour cherries plus some lemon notes, with an overall sweet/soft feeling of vanilla (or something in the likes). Very nice but not too intense. Taste follows the aroma, with sour cherries and some background notes (slight citrus/lemon, vanilla, almond, maybe a hint of wood). Overall more sweet than sour with sourness very much in check as typical per boon. Medium bodied with light to medium carbonation. Overall a very much domesticated and easy drinking fruit lambic. It's surely enjoyable but i didn't find it too interesting.

PhillyCraft (7984) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2017
Backlog, Bottle. Pours a dark red shade with a medium, fast receding, pink head and light lace. Nose and flavor of sweet cherry, syrup, oak, and acidic vinegar. Medium bodied with normal carbonation. A bit sharp/sweet overall.
