4.28/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

poured into tulip glass.

Vintage 2008.

Nice loud pop when this C&C bottle was opened up.

Appearance: deep crimson red body with a big pink head. 2 fingers of head quickly fizzes away to a thin ring.

Smell: sweet cherries and oak. Slightly sharp vinegar note and a hint of wheat malt and funk.

Taste: moderately tart cherries with moderate funk. The fruit and funk in this beer are really well balanced together nicely. Oak barrel and a touch of vinegar. More wood, sweet cherries, lemons, and berries in the finish.

Mouthfeel: medium light bodied neer with almost moderate carbonation levels. Soft carbonation that is fairly smooth. As the beer crosses over your tongue a slight prickly carbonation gives life to the beer. Dry finish to this beer.

Overall: I would say this is very comparable to a cantillion in the flavor profile, but cantillion has a better mouthfeel. Really nice Kreik.

3.7/5  rDev -11.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

375 mL bottle poured into smell in. Best before 2033, but I don't know the exact year because server took the cork.

Appearance - Deep pink body. Nice light pink head. Retains well. Nice pink collar.

Smell - Cherry. Not sweet smelling. Very woody. Acidic smelling
A little lemony. Very little funk.

Taste - Cherry is very nice. Wood immediately. Wood continues throughout and into the finish. Moderate lemon sourness. Kinda grainy. Drops off in flavor in the back end.

Mouthfeel - The flavor drops off in the back end, but it's otherwise very drinkable. Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - Better than expected from Boon. Very tasty, but not as complex as its more illustrious brethren.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

My palate for sours is still evolving, but I enjoy trying new things, so looking forward to this. At five years, this would be the oldest beer I've ever rated. I just can't seem to keep them around very long.

Purple with some light red hues and a thin, tan head.

An array of overly sour fruits (chiefly cherry) float soft to the nose, followed by a deep, musty character and notes of brett. Someone left the fruit cart out in the sun too long, or perhaps just right.

Taste is refined with slightly sweet and tart dark fruits (cherry, plum, prune, grape), some fruit skin, and a bit of grain and yeast.

Medium bodied, smooth and dry with no alcohol noticed.

To quote Burroughs, it's "...the most decent, most deeply sour beer I have ever known!" Or something to that affect. Either way it's the finest example of a lambic that I've had, so these beers just might be growing on me.

4.05/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a blood red color and a thick texture. There was an inch of foamy, pink-colored, long-lasting head. Not much lacing.

S: Not surprisingly, a lot of cherries in the aroma, along with an earthy quality as well.

T: Sour cherries dominate flavor. There's also a funkiness, along with the earthy quality. Apples also make an appearance. This is a very well done flavor, one that's more sour than sweet, but that's not a problem.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a sour finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a very solid, well made lambic. Definitely drinkable.

***2009 Vintage***

Poured from a 375ml bottle, best before 17.08.2031.

Pours a blood-red pink body with a head that is unmistakably pink. Cream, sour cherries in the aroma. Flavor has a nice balance of sweet and sour cherries. Feel is a touch acidic, next to no carbonation, oak is light. Enjoyed it but not quite up to par with some other Krieks IMO.
