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.

Strykzone (7181) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Pour is a cloudy dark red brown with a noisy purple head that fizzes away quickly. Aroma is cherries with mustiness. Flavor is natural cherry, like I used to eat off the tree before they were completely ripe. A bit of rhubarb, as well. This is surprisingly dry and leaves a moderately dry bitterness as an aftertaste. One of the best lambics I have come across.

HAD to drink this with BillVanE so we could culture the yeast for a starter. He made me drink it. THANKS!!! Awesome scent from a 6oz pour, bursting with cherry aroma. I couldnt believe how full the palate was for being a lambic, nice filling taste time after time. A great treat. Thanks BillVanE!

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Poured crimson with no head. There was a nice cherry, fruity aroma with a little bit of horse blanket underneath. Not overwhelmingly fruity, but nice. The flavor was dominantly fruity, cherry with some nice vinous qualities. Overall, this is a heavy fruit beer and not for those who dislike fruity beers. I thought it was pretty good, more like champagne.

Nice sweetish, a bit sour aroma of cherries. Flavor is soft, sweetish cherries with some sourness in it. Very drinkable.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2008
Lovely example of a kriek. I am probably over-rating this because we are starved of good fruit beers Down Under. I do not care because I had forgotten just how enjoyable a good fruit beer can be. Muddy plum colour with a thick Cremola Foam head that lingered well. Creamy, subtle aroma - intriguing. Sherbet-sour with canned peaches and cream. Some restrained sugars. Light body with some late spritz. Soft cherries, filling malty middle and a quenching sherbet-fizz finish. No funk here - very clean but tasty. A great balancing act.

JAXSON (591) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Pours a pretty cherry red with brown and alot of sediment. A nice sour presence pervades the area, followed by some vinegar toward the end of the pour. My wife drank much of the bottle, but I got enough to have formed an impression. Not bone-dry like other krieks, but with a wine-like quality, little residual sweetness. Cherry and oak up front. A striking amount of vinegar. Different. Slight medicinal component.
