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.

Listigovers (1171) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Reddish brown beer with a pink head. Funky and sweet smell. Not too carbonated and a slight cherry sweetness. Wildness is subdued and easy to drink, quite juicy, good.

MelvinKalksma (1536) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, cherry and tart.

Appearance:
Hazy/turbid red/purple beer with a medium pink head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts and cherry; ends slightly dry and sour with tart.

Overall:
This beer is intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Rather sweet cherry flavour and just a slight trace of tart. Tasteful and drinkable and manages to never get too sweet for its own good.

Grumpelmies (318) - GERMANY - DEC 15, 2016
Draft @ Metafoor, Leuven. Pale red with almost no head. Aroma and taste of cherries. Sweet and sour. Refreshing but too sweet for my tastes. Low carbonation. I don’t really care for these kind of beers but I guess it’s good for what it is.

Pours dark cherry red, clear with a pink head. Nose of sweet cherries. Nice and tart a touch sweet but not overly sweet. Lots of cherries.

Kittenbieer (197) - LYON, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2016
Partagée dans un verre dorelei avec mon cher Appiantiqua, jolie robe rouge vif surmontée d’une bonne mousse rosée assez persistante avec une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes de cerises très agréables et sans artifices .La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs à l’image du nez avec de fines pointes d’acidité et peu de sucre.Un kriek qui nous laisse sur une fraîcheur bien plaisante!15,5/20

appiantiqua (197) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2016
Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre Dorelei. Température de début 6 à 7°. Belle robe robe rouge vif surmontée d’une mousse rose assez persistante; bonne carbonatation. Nez très agréable sur les cerises. Le goût est tout aussi plaisant et reste bien naturel avec une pointe d’acidité rafraîchissante. La finale est sans lourdeur et laisse une très bonne sensation. Un Kriek très réussi et naturel. 15,5/20

BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2016
15cl draught, glass on a tasting tray in Le Trappiste, Brugge: late Nov 2016. Red pour, off-white head. Semi-sour cherries rule the brew completely, nothing more to add really. Some Kriek beers are really sour, others overly sweet: this sits on the fence.

2.8
minutemat (5500) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle @ St Arnoldus, Ieper. Pours blood red, white head with a faint pinkish tinge. Aroma is vibrant sweet cherry kriek. Taste verges on the sweet side, lightly cloying, clean and lacking a nice sharp kriek edge. That said, it was pleasant and refreshing enough on this afternoon

3.2
Svartvit (574) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2016
375ml bottle at home. Pours dark red with a white head. Very crisp sweet cherry aroma that is followed up by a similair taste. Over medium sweet, bit too much. Light bodied, fizzy. Clean, crisp and refreshing but very simple.

3.2
humpah (272) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2016
0,375l bottle from Belgiuminabox. Pours dark red colour with no head. Aroma of cherries, tartness, sweetness. Pretty light refreshing beer, somewhat simple and juicy feeling.
