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 !

JulienHuxley (5657) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle. Beautiful deep red pour with pink foam. Aroma was still very fresh and fruity, lots of cherries, nice funk but which did not overpower the fruit. Taste was slightly sweet, maybe a tad too much so for the style, good tart finish. Palate was lively and finished reasonably dry. Good stuff.

BlackHaddock (6550) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Tasted at the 2007 Zythos fest. Gravity poured straight out the wooden barrel, it looked heavy, dirty and mean. It didnt want to come out, it was happy in the barrel, I had disturbed it. The frothy light pink head disappeared almost as soon as it hit the air. Incredible woody, sour cherry and grubby farmyard smells attack your nose and your head jolts back, this is a seriously pungent aroma. Sour is not the right word, tart doesnt do it justice either, rancid or turned discribes the acidic taste better, good job I was expecting it. My wife hated it, I cant pretent I loved it, but you have to try these beers when you see them in a wooden barrel dont you? Sour cherries and wood from the barrel give an aftertaste which is more pleasant than the original taste, and it stays for a long, long time. As a one off, I am glad I had it. Would I have another? Not unless it was in a wooden barrel.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2012
2004 vintage bottle from North Bar, Leeds, at Dans. Pours a pink-red, with a tiny ring of white foam. Aroma of red fruits, green apples, creamy peppercorn sauce. Oh, and parma violets. And sherbet. And a bit of milkshake. Unutterably complex. This is astounding, even before tasting it. The taste doesnt disappoint. Incredibley sour. Like, more sour than Mike Love when he saw how well Brian Wilson was doing without him. Red fruits, lemon, strawberries, woody, floral, definite elderflower. Again, unutterabley complex. And unutterabley wonderful. Complex, sour, incredible in every single way. This is the best lambic Ive ever had. Sweet fucking WOW.

Jacob23_5 (128) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2012
Bottle of 2004 vintage. Dark red colour, almost no head. Nose of big red fruit, peppery spice with a slightly creamy, rounded edge, blackcurrant, almost harissa, complex as hell! Flavours? Sourest thing of all time, but really dry, very very little sweetness which rerally accentuates the face-puckering sourness. Spicy strawberry at the beginning, with an aromatic edge to it as well, lemony caramel coming through. Proper mahogany note to it as well. Obviously, bugger-loads of cherries. Bloody hell what a beer.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2012
2004 vintage bottle courtesy of FaithHealer1 - massive thanks!! Gorgeous hazy maroon colour, with a thin, pale pink cap that fades to nothing. Amazing nose - parma violets, armpits (in a very good way), vinous cherry, hint of pepper, strawberry milkshake?! Lovely smooth complex fruits. Incredibly rounded. Vinous, ultra-dry woody front, big sour cherry fruit, again that lovely smooth, oddly creamy fruit note. Serious (I mean massive!) sherbet sourness, long vinous sour linger. Light spritzy carbonation. Incredibly good, stunningly complex yet just SO well-rounded! Phenomenal, THANK YOU JAMES!

prawlie (1506) - ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle at De Republiek in Brugge, into Boon glass. Very short lived cherry bubbly head over a deep red beer. Lovely cherry burst without the syrup of industrial krieks. Despite the cherries, its dry and sour, very nice, not too sweet. Light cherry perfume aroma.
