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 !

brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Dark red pour with a pink head. Nice rich cherry aroma with plenty of fruit and cherry skin notes. Some nice lactic tartness, a bit of grass, a mild musty funk, and some red fruits. A huge cherry character on the palate. Nice tartness, lemon zest, and musty funk. Great cherry skin, slight sweetness, with a dry finish.

tquest (94) - BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2012
Crop 2008. Pours dark red with a very nice head that stays all the time. Waw, didnt excpect this from a boon but this is a nice kriek. Not overly sour but nicely balanced. Fruit taste is very good, certainly not sweet or so. Light tartness, great smell of sour cherries. Best brew from Boon till now. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Darker red color with red foam head. Bubbly, lasting and lacing. Aroma is cherry. Taste is sweet cherries, as alwasys bit too sweet for my taste. Always drink these beers as desert, works well. Longer sweet aftertaste, with some bitter tones, high alcohol for fruit beer. (Vlaardingen 201209)
