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 !

manomarnypopis (57) - POLAND - OCT 17, 2016
Aroma: Dry aroma of dominating cherry, subtle horse blanket, nothing too complex. Appearance: Dark red coloured body, pink frothy head. Taste: Mostly cherries and raspberry, very sweet for typical kriek, but just fine, medium bitter. Overall: Really drinkable beer, perfect for Oude Kriek beginners.

Fules (1102) - Gyngys, HUNGARY - OCT 6, 2016
(2014-es vjrat) Kzepes, rzsaszn, szellős, nem tl hossz hab, stt bord szn. Illata vadlesztős, meggyes. Vad savanyval indt (nan, 40% meggy!), majd fokozatosan előbukkan a lambic animlis, vadlesztős zvilga, ami egybknt nem tl markns. Lecsengse kzepesen hossz, s rdekes mdon inkbb a lambic viszi a prmet, a meggy csak fanyarsgot ad. Kzepesen testes, erősen sznsavas, keserűje csak meggytől szrmazik. Kicsit sok a savany, de egybkn nagyon finom.

AwaKe (292) - Laval, CANADA - OCT 3, 2016
En bouteille, cuvée 2015 bu en octobre 2016. Couleur rouge vin opaque, fine mousse rose. Arômes de cerises sauvages assez fraiche et de barriques. En bouche beaucoup de bois de cerisier, barrique. L'acidité sur les joues révèle quant à eux les cerises. Le côté boisé décele aussi une certaine amertume un peu désagréable, qui rappel un jus d'orange après s'être brossé les dents. Certainement une bière pour les grandes occasions. À partager ou à boire en format 375ml. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2016
375ml corked bottle, 2014 lAncienne version, bought at Vinmonopolet Honningsvg. A good shot followed by smoke when opened. Noisy pink coloured head to a deep, dark red coloured body. Dry aroma of cherry and raspberry peels. Smooth, tart and sweet taste of cherry, raspberry and wood added by a backdrop of yeast. Lingering ending, tart and sweet. Fine bodied. Quite enjoying (Hotel room, Honningsvg 17.09.2016).
