COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oude Kriek Boon is one of the finest examples of the 100% spontaneous fermentation fruit-Lambic style. 400 g of wild cherries per litre are fermented together with a blend of young and old Boon Lambic that has been aged in oak casks. After clarification, the Oude kriek is bottled and refermented. It is unsweetened, unfiltered, unpasteurised and has no artificial flavourings, preservatives or colourings added. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name. Pour slowly in a flute glass without disturbing the yeast sediment in the bottle. Cheers !

Come al solito qua si casca sempre in piedi, la mi moglie voleva un buon bere e di conseguenza ho aperto oude kriek, davvero notevole.

Aromat winny, troche zawodzi. Barwa burgund wpadajacy w braz, piana rachityczna. W smaku sa wisnie, jest drewno, duzo lepiej. Jest wytrawnie. Czuc ze lezakowane. Fajne, ale spodziewalem sie troche wiecej.

BOTTLE 37 CL. Hazy deep ruby, huge pink head with good retention. Funky aroma, moderate barnyard, sweat, green fruit acidity. Just a touch of dried cherry stickiness. The taste is dry, moderate lacto, green fruit. The cherry is dried and old without the sweetness, juicy acidity with no sharp edges. Very nice.

Mishnok (402) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2017
Red with pink foam head. Not the sour tang I expected. Quite a soft, dry sour taste, plenty of cherry there but not as sharp as other krieks I've tasted recently. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Czerwone, nieprzejrzyste, dosc metne. Piana rózowawa, drobnopecherzykowa, utrzymujaca sie z dosc wyraznym lacingiem. W aromacie wisnie, troche stajni. W smaku skóra, wisnie, pestki, dosc kwasne. Bardzo dobry przedstawiciel swojego rodzaju

minutemat (6045) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2017
375ml bottle (2014 bottling) from Vanuxeem. Pours a deep red, pinkish white head. Lightly funky, light thorny cherry aroma. Taste is soft, fuzzy and perhaps not as sharp and bristling as the aroma might suggest. Still, a pleasant aged kriek with a soft funk presence.

Drank 13-07-17 with Koen & Cat (thanks for sharing!). 2013 bottle. Quite subtle sour. A bit ’soft’, but I like the sours that way. Nice.

Barwa czerwona, mętna, piana mała różowa. Aromat stajni, koński, wiśniowy. W smaku skórzane, wiśniowe, pestkowe. Pifko cierpkie i lekko kwaśne. Takie szlachetne pifko.
