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.

crabbey (17) - - JUL 14, 2010
Dark red rose with thin pink head, slight turbidity. Nose is dominant cherry, with some oak. There is both a moderate sweetness and sourness, nicely balanced, and no bitterness. The body is light with a lively carbonation. First proper kriek Ive tried, so no real basis for comparison. Enjoyed the dominant cherry character, but the lambic character could be a bit stronger for me. My next one will be aged another year. 375mL corked and caged bottle. Crop 2008, BB 12/05/2013

Pours dark cherry red, clear with a pink head. Nose of sweet cherries. Nice and tart a touch sweet but not overly sweet. Lots of cherries.

Dguste avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre Dorelei. Temprature de dbut 6 7. Belle robe robe rouge vif surmonte dune mousse rose assez persistante; bonne carbonatation. Nez trs agrable sur les cerises. Le got est tout aussi plaisant et reste bien naturel avec une pointe dacidit rafrachissante. La finale est sans lourdeur et laisse une trs bonne sensation. Un Kriek trs russi et naturel. 15,5/20

BlackHaddock (6557) - 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 (4639) - 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 (82) - 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.

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.
