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%.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Reddish pour with a frothy head. Aroma is cherry sough syrup and flavor is just too sweet. Could use some tartness to balance. Good thing I wasn’t drinking the whole bottle.

Bottle 0,375 l. Ruby red, whitish lemonade head. Nose is candy cherry, Dr. Pepper kind of. Slighty sour. Flavor is again cherry on a Dr. Pepper kind of way, or some candies. Not necessarily very organic taste. Not as tart as it could be, nor actually sweet. Dr Pepper and Cherry coke do come to mind and maybe almonds. Strange, don’t know this genre very well.

Geuzelambix (376) - København, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2008
Not a good kriek. Too sweet and way to much in the line of a cherry wine. Neither the aroma nor the taste were a huge pleasure. Not nasty as such, but try to avoid it.

~Pours a light candy red color with small lasting pink head. ~Strong cherry candy aroma, very sweet. Kind of smells like cherry cough drops. ~Flavor is pretty nice, not as sweet as the scent suggest. Cherry definetly present, but also some grains like wheat. ~Feels soft and light. Finish is cherry sweet. ~My first lambic. I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I don’t care too much for this. It is too candy like for me. I will drink it though, very slowly.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2008
I had the 2006 version. A hazy dark red beer, with a rose creamy head, with big bubbles. The aroma of strong cerries, with some sweetness and sour. The taste of course fruits/cherries, some sweet and in the back some sourness. I think a very nice kriek.

3.3
SaintMatty (7522) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2008
375ml Bottle (Õllesummer 2008,Tallinn) . Dark red in colour with a pink head. Fruity and slightly tart aroma with the cherry dominating along with some almonds. Fairly sweet taste with a mild tart element. Sweet but still one to take seriously.
