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.

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

Poncjusz (76) - POLAND - MAR 30, 2017
Kolor wiśniowy, lekko zamglony, pina rośnie wysoka drobna i gęsta. Ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat wiśni, taki przyjemny świeży, kompot z wiśni, liście wiśni, czuć derkę, zakurzone drzewo, w tle lekki migdał. W smaku dziwna słodkość, jakaś miodowa, lekka wytrawność. Dość płytkie, nieco rozwodnione. W aromacie prezentowało się lepiej. Pijalność średnia. Piwo ok, ale wersja Oude lepsza.

tmzl (308) - SLOVENIA - MAR 26, 2017
Syrupy cherries, almonds, mineral water, light-med sourness with light-med cherry sweetness, actually manageable for a sweet kriek.

Mr_Pink_152 (4495) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Bottle from Crafty Bottle, Lincoln. Deep red colour with a thin white head, that quickly disappeared. The aroma is fruity cherry that caries over into the taste, which is also light sour. A veryefreshing beer

Paszczur (13) - Toruń, POLAND - MAR 21, 2017
W zapachu i smaku wiśnie, wiśnie, wiśnie, w zasadzie niewiele oprcz wiśni. Brak nut rustykalnych, zbyt słodkie, oczekiwałem więcej.

Deep ruby red. Gushing. Pinkish head. Nice genuine cherry and wild yeast on nose. Light body. Sweetish taste. Lots of cherry tastes. Tartness along. Pleasant.

RhetoricalAns (905) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2017
375 mL bottle. Deep red pour, thin pink head (no lacing). Sweet cherry aroma. Taste is also fairly sweet, slight tart finish. Flavour is cherry again. Not a lot going on apart from sweet cherry but at least its not artificial.

Moravius (1211) - Beijing, CHINA - FEB 25, 2017
Flasche (Kriek Boon", Jg. 2013, daheim gelagert). - Tiefes Kupferrot, klar. - Ser aber angenehmer Duft nach Sauerkirsch-Schorle oder Haribo Happy Cherries. - Im Geschmack fr ein Kriek berraschend kirschig-fruchtig, mit deutlicher Weingummi-Note, die aber nicht strend wirkt, weil sie in mild suerliche Frucht eingebettet ist. Zarte Herbe, eine Andeutung von Bittermandel, ganz zarte Anklnge von Lambic-Muff. Prickelnd rezent. Mild herb-suerlicher Abgang mit schwachen unangenehmen Noten wie von Sstoff. Auch beim Wrmerwerden noch gut geniebar. - Eher ein Erfrischungsgetrnk als Bier, trotzdem ganz angenehm.

[2012] Przyjemny winny, owocowy, aromat z lekko wyczuwalną stajnią. Kwaśność umiarkowana, wiśniowa. Piwo dosyć słodkie z delikatnie cierpkim finiszem.
