COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kriek Boon is a traditional Belgian Lambic fruit-beer. It is brewed according to the traditional Lambic style of spontaneous fermentation. Only fresh cherries (25%) are used. Kriek Boon is slightly sweet, with the surprising natural fragrance of sourcherries and almonds. With only 4% of alcohol it is a perfect summer beer.

Dark reddish purple. Viscous and syrupy. Nose is cherry cough syrup, almond extract, slightly floral. Taste is cloying sweet cherry cough syrup. A small 2-4 oz. pour with some chocolate desert is about the only context I can see this being very enjoyable.
