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 (16347) - 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

vipinvelp (4252) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2012
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)

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2013 0.375l 2008 model bottle @ De Groote Witte Arend, Antwerp. My lord this looks amazing. On a light cloudy day, sitting in one amazing backyard, pouring my self a oude kriek. Holding this cherry-red thing with a big lasting pink head that up against the clouds it just looks like heaven (literally and metaphorically). It has a good fruity cherry aroma, some sour lemons and its also light tart. Mildly woody with more, this time, sweet cherries. Nice stuff! Its almost over-aggressive carbonated, but because the bubbles are so tiny it somehow manages not to disturb me. Flavors are lovely refreshing with fresh cut grass, cherries, wood, lemon zest and blackberries. One really tasty brew and one helluva setting, mood and, in lack of better words, serenity now! 02.06.2012

Corked 0.375l from De Bierkoning shared with Inbreak at hotel room. Lovely looks with a enormous pink fluffy head. Really solid and the beer itself is blood red with a little purple in it. Smells of a mixture between sweet and sour cherries. Some wet grass, a little bit of wood and some artificial sweetness. Smells quite nice. Its definitely not to sweet, but not directly to sour either. Like drinking concentrated cherries juice in a way. Old ripe strawberries are not hard to pick out here and that lovely little sting in the finish makes it really refreshing. Good stuff! 7-5-7-4-15 26.09.2013

Hazy cherry red beer, Pretty pink head! Sourish nose. Light dry crisp palate. Super tart cherry, crisp and dry with a dash of acid lemon. A puckery level of sourness. Very dry finish. Has its place I guess, but not for me.
