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 !

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.

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 (1531) - 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.

Mortlach (2105) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 1, 2012
15/06/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Kriek spillata a pompa. Bel color ciliegia, vivo, intenso, con schiuma rosa, morbida e abbastanza persistente. Aroma intensissimo di ciliegia, con note pungenti acide e agrumate. In bocca delicatissima, esordio dolciastro, con ciliegie ben in evidenza, e finale lungo, acido, impegnativo, interessante. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Discreta.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle from overseas. Served in a Grote Dorst mini gueuze tumbler. 375mL bottle. 2008 vintage. Pours a clear dark blood red with a good pink head. Light lacing and a thin pink collar. The nose brings some cherry and a bit of very light funk and acid, though not too much. The cherry component of the flavor is quite nice, though some more lambic character would be nice. Light body with good carbonation. A bit tart. Pretty good, but not up there with the best.

375 ml bottle bought @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours blood red with a fizzy pink head that quickly dissipates whiteout leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is subtle, slightly sour and fruity with a combination of sour and regular cherries, leather, hay and funk. Taste is slightly sour, slightly bitter, slightly sweet and fruity with sour cherries, cherry pits, grass, leather and funk. Finish is dry, slightly sour and bitter with cherries.

(Flasche) Es hat eine kirschrote Farbe, ist klar filtriert und es hat eine rosa Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr fruchtig-suerlich, das Kirscharoma ist slich und leicht schwer. Der Geschmack ist anfangs adstringierend, alkoholisch und leicht erdig/muffig, geht dann in eine strkere Sure ber. Im Kopf und retronasal ist wieder das Kirscharoma. Bittere ist nicht vorhanden und es ist sehr stark karbonisiert. Zusammengefasst; aromatisch, spritzig und lecker.
