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.

alexsdad06 (9429) - Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours a darker burgundy color with a small light pink head. The aroma has much of what I would expect: sweet, sour and oak. The flavors were not very strong, a lighter tart cherry, oak and some lightly funky notes. The mouth feel is on the thin side, and carbonation is lighter than expected.

BlackHaddock (6546) - 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.

minutemat (4605) - Shrewsbury, 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

Svartvit (74) - 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.

humpah (157) - Jyvskyl, 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.

thomashall (767) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2016
2014 bottle. Dark cherry red pour. Aroma is cherry syrup. Not very sour, more fruity and sugary. Not very complex but tasty.

sinte (526) - Udine, ITALY - NOV 12, 2016
Bottle 0.375L, labeled 2014. Ruby body with a large, frothy, pink head, average lasting with some nice lacing. Aroma is dominated by cherries with notes of wine and alcohol (cherry liqueur). Quite balanced, moderate sweet and acidic flavour with a dry finish. Unexpected medium body with watery-to-oily texture; lively carbonation.

wchesser (1947) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Dark reddish purple. Viscous and syrupy. Nose is cherry cough syrup, almond extract, slightly floral. Taste is cloying sweet cherry cough syrup. A small 2-4 oz. pour with some chocolate desert is about the only context I can see this being very enjoyable.
