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.

Editor’s note: Was 5%.

Bottle: Another tasty lambic, intense cherry flavor, sweet and refreshing, great after dinner brew.

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. [375ml bottle 2006 vintage from IBS, Perth. bb 3/7/11]

Poured Cloudy brown with a cherry aroma. Taste was mainly tart sour cherries.

JAXSON (608) - 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.

tlind2 (1773) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2008
375 ml bottle. Deep cherry red color, pinkish head. Sweet-and-sour cherry aroma. Sweet fruity flavor. High carbonation. Not much of a kriek, lacking the proper sour flavor.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Nice ruby red body with a fizzy but long sustained pink head. Strong sweet cherry pie filling aroma with some acidity, berries and candy notes. Sweet and sour cherries in the mouth with a short, dry, tart sparkly finish. Clean and refreshing but full of subtle complexities.

3.6
TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2008
Ruby red pour with a small, fizzy, pink head. The smell is predominately cherry with some hints of citrus. Taste is of sour cherries and sugar, begins sour on the buds and then turns a nice bitter. Fantastic! Palate is a bit syrupy, with lively carbonation. Great lambic.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Reddish pour with a pink tinged head. Musty yeast aroma with big cherry presence. Flavor is sweet and tart, musty and sour with a pleasant bite. Not bad.

3.5
502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - OCT 8, 2008
355 ml. into wine glass. Great looking pour - clear but dark red/pink with a creamy light pink head that fades pretty quickly. The aroma is good and funky - sour apple, cherries, and sour raspberry/blackberry notes... a bit cheesy too. Flavor isn’t as sour and funky as aroma suggests. it is really balanced and drinkable though. Not overly sweet, great soft cherry flavor with a pit of sour apple to it. Not overly carbonated either - very fine tingly soft carbonation. Overall: simple but highly drinkable and refreshing for sure.

3.4
Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a reddish amber color with a minimal pink head. Nose is sour candy. Definite cherry in the flavor, more tangy than sweet. Much less sour yeast presence than expected. Very cloying at the back of the mouth. Thin body and lively carbonation. Not bad, a nice departure from other, more sweet lambics.
