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 !

jackl (8423) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2013
Draft sample @ Boon during TdG ’13. The pour’s deep red with hardly any head whatsoever. The nose is earthy rotting cherry. Mold, forest moss. Hints of biting acidic bile. The taste is rich cherry tart, rhubarb. Mild acidity. A bit of marzipan. Oaky wooden finish. Pretty full on the tongue, active carbonation. Overall, pretty good stuff.

Garlic_of_Doom (655) - SWEDEN - APR 13, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours cloudy dark red with a pink frothy head. Wow, really nice! Aroma is sour, yeasty, funky and has some sweet cherries to it. Taste has sour cherries, dry cherry stones followed by slight sweetness and is finished by dry, sour notes and wood. Medium carbonation, smooth mouth feel. Not very much of an after taste.
