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 !

Pours a nice cherry red with a half-inch slow diffusing bubbly head. Aroma of sour cherries, alfalfa, and some oak. Lively carbonation and tart flavors on the palate. Slightly astringent in the finish. Sour cherries, unripe persimmons. Excellent!

john44 (2698) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle. Deep Cherry Red in colour. Very cherry-fruity, but very tart, sour. Zingy, tangy, lots of tart cherries. Earthy, dusty, funky, yeasty. Oaky, woody. Bone dry finish. Lovely. (2008)

huineman (629) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 2, 2017
2013 vintage. 375 cl bottle served in tall stemmed tasting glass at La Tape, Madrid. Pours slick and dense, maroon/eggplant-hued, with thick short-lasting pinkish head. Aroma is intense and balanced: tobacco, yeast, brown sugar, Morello cherry, strawberry, wild honey. Taste is very dry and very sour, with no presence of umami, metal or bitterness at all. Long finish. Great one.

MatiF96 (123) - POLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Krwiście czerwona barwa z rżową pianą. W aromacie wiśnia z typowymi nutami lambicw - skrka, derka, dzikość. Czuć działanie brettw. Lekki wiśniowy kwasek w smaku. Bardzo pijalne, dzikie. Przyjemnie się pije, polecam

Beerowl80 (329) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle. Pours light hazy red. Aroma of cherry, barnyard and oak. Medium sweet and light sour. The cherry flavour is there but doesnt smack you in the mouth. Nice but not really zingy enough.
