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.

Kriek beers are on my list of favourites and although I prefere them kind of sweet, this one is dry and is pretty dem good. The flavor on the moth after each zip is just delighful.

coil (124) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2017 375ml corked bottle from The Grumpy Goat, Reading. Red colour with pink head. Big sweet slightly funky cherry, big cola bottle Haribos, cherry yoghurt, cherry cola, some light tartness and barnyard funk. Too sweet and not enough tartness / funk, enjoyable if you treat it like some cherry soda alcopop with lambic elements but a bad example of the style.

Beer taster in Mels Craft Beer, Vienna. I'm sure this is a gantastic lambic but not really for me. Sweet cherry and beer bit like a cherry cola. The ABV not high enough to pep up the taste buds.

Backlog, ocena wystawiona na podstawie wspomnień z degustacji oraz przepisana z profilu na Untappd. Lepiej wygląda niż smakuje.

Never hurts when you rate a 15 year old bottle of something. 2002 vintage, 750ml bottle pours a murky amber with some creamy, white head. Nose has a bit of cork, wet cardboard, some raspberry and cherry. Flavor is nicely balanced, some sweet cherry juice, not too much acid or funk, mild cheese. Finish still have a touch of sweetness but otherwise medium bodied.

Bottle shared at the Cad's leaving do - big thanks to the man himself. Vintage 2002! Mild gusher. Pours clear pink-gold with a ton of sediment, effervescence, a tight creamy head. Lots of dried cherries, a little wood, mellow funk and lemon. Light sweet flavour with lightly tangy cherries, minimal bitterness, soft woody dryness. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Sweet finish, more juicy-tangy cherries, mild aged wood. Good stuff.

April 2016. I liked it. Not as sweet as the lambic we normally drink. Sorry, I had to upload these old ratings. They were for me, not for uploading. And also I need 75 characters, hence this sentence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear, red. Aroma: sweet cherries. Light body, medium sweetness, lightly sour. Quite a lot wilderness in taste.

Tomawaky (1) - - SEP 7, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2017 Goût cerise très prononcé, mais passe très bien si on est réfractaire à ce genre de bière.

PhillyCraft (7731) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2017
Backlog, Bottle, clearish red with smaller head. Notes of sweet cherries, cherry syrup, vinegar, acid and dark fruit funk. Cloyingly sweet like a lot of the boon stuff I have tried. Not a big fan.
