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 (16449) - 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.

375ml bottle (2014 bottling) from Vanuxeem. Pours a deep red, pinkish white head. Lightly funky, light thorny cherry aroma. Taste is soft, fuzzy and perhaps not as sharp and bristling as the aroma might suggest. Still, a pleasant aged kriek with a soft funk presence.

Drank 13-07-17 with Koen & Cat (thanks for sharing!). 2013 bottle. Quite subtle sour. A bit ’soft’, but I like the sours that way. Nice.

murzyn (297) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 12, 2017
Barwa czerwona, mętna, piana mała różowa. Aromat stajni, koński, wiśniowy. W smaku skórzane, wiśniowe, pestkowe. Pifko cierpkie i lekko kwaśne. Takie szlachetne pifko.

czlowiekmotyka (323) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 29, 2017
It is an incredibly pretty beverage. Beautiful red colour with pink head. But it is just lightly wild. And the cherry flavour is compote like.

AndreasP (277) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2017
Vintage 2014. Pours sligthly cloudy red, no head. Aroma contains woody and acidic notes. Taste is some cherry fruit, almond, sour, impression of barrel. Rather dry. Palate is soft, with low carbonation. Nice balance of fruit, sour and barrel.

Barwa ciemnoczerwona, niska piana. W aromacie wiśnia, bretty, stajnia. W smaku również wiśnia, nuty winne, owocowe. Fajna cierpkość, średnia kwaśność.

Zilverenmaan (200) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2017
Aroma: nice funk, sour cherries with a hint of sweetness. Taste: lots of cherries, light funk, distict acidity, no sweetness. Well balanced with both taste of cherries and geuze very discernible. Mouthfeel medium, slightly creamy. Carbonation soft. Simply a good kriek.

3.2
WillemsUrenkel (1878) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2017
0,375 l bottle. 2014. Dark dark red in the glass, small fast fading rosé head. Sweet sour fruitieness smell. Taste starts fruity, switching to a more dry sequence with less fruity. Can not really convince in the second part.
