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 !

Bottle 375 ml. Pours almost clear dark red with a medim sized thick creamy pink head. Loads of cherry in the aroma, some citrus, stable and raspberries. Very fruity to the taste, lots of cherry, some citrus and strawberry. Some sweetness, not that sour for an oude, a bit thin mouthfeel.

Om det här är samma som jag fick i mig för några år sedan så är det långlagring som gäller. Det här är inte mycket att hurra för i nuläget. Saknar komplexiteten

@basunen: trevlig körsbärsdoft. Smaken lika så men inte särskilt syrlig. Helt ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark red colour with a warming orange brown tint and a light pink head. Aroma is dust, cherries, toffee, funk. Beer has a nice sour/sweet balance. I’d have liked it a little drier and it could use some more wood or earth in its taste. But it’s a good Kriek. Nicely carbonated.

375ml Bottle - Red with a pinky white head. Cherries, almonds and blackcurrants in the aroma. Nicely balanced taste with the sweet and tart notes of the cherries combining nicely.

From a bottle at a tasting at Systembolaget, February 2013. Dark red with a small pink head. Aroma and taste of cherries, wood, lemon and some light funk. Not extremely sour. Refreshing and a rather soft Fruit Lambic. I like it.

RexTalionis (3766) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle 37,5 cl, vintage 2008, BBE 2031. Pours dark red in color with a frothy pinkish head. Cherries mostly in aroma and light sour notes with some light barnyard notes as well, which do get stronger towards the end though. Spritzy mouthfeel. A bit of that sourness mixed with cherries can be found in the taste. A bit of that wheat chewyness is there too. More on the sour side in finish along with a nice cherry-taste in ending.

2012. Bit of carbonation. Took cage off, and cork took care of itself. Won’t lie jumped like a little girl with its playful little "pop"! More dry and serious than its unaged brother, this kriek has a lot more depth and dryness. Cherries are richer and more flavoursome, but for me I think I prefer the playfulness of the lighter styles. Will have to go back and review the Lindemans to see if I am holding that beer on too high a pedestal.
