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 (16222) - 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.

chap95 (155) - - JAN 5, 2017
Bardzo głęboka czerwień, przeciętna rżowa piana. W zapachu wiśnie, maliny, czereśnie, dość świeże, słodkie. Aromaty stajni, końskiej derki mocno z tyłu. W smaku jest intensywnie owocowe, cierpkie, orzeźwiające, bardzo pijalne. Umiarkowanie, przystępnie kwaśne. W ustach smukłe, lekkie, trochę wodniste, ale pasuje to bardzo dobrze. Oglnie zdominowane przez owoce, bardzo przyjemne.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2016
2004 bottle that has survived two house moves and a change of wife, but alas not well. The pour raises a few concerns: barely any head. Thin corona of bubbles and minimal evidence of life lower down. Pinky bronze colour. Complex, cidery aroma - fermented apples, turpentine, faint cherry, acetone. Has suffered badly in the rack. Dies on the tongue. Close to flat. Fruits have faded badly, too. Big disappointment. Really needs some fizz to pep it up. Wheres my whisk? Puckering sourness is very much still there and now dominates. Supposed to be good through to 2023, so I guess its a transport and/or storage issue. Either that or I just dont get this particular lambic. Have slowly raised my scoring as the bottle emptied, so its a grower.

Bottle at home. Clear red with no head retention. Sweet and sour cherries, berries, grapes, dry woody notes, rusty metallic notes. Medium sweet and sour, light nutty bitter. Medium body, soft carbonation. Rich fruity aroma and feel. Rusty metallic, nutty/woody bittersweet and fruity tart finish.
