From notes. Poured from a 375 mL bottle into a tulip.

It pours a deep ruby color with a nice foamy cherry colored head.

The aroma is sweet and slightly tart cherry, Musty oak, vanilla, and some balsamic vinegar in the background.

Boon Kriek starts off with a sweet cherry flavor with a little bit of vanilla. Slowly the flavor turns tart and sour, with an acetic undertone.

The mouthfeel is a little bit on the full side to start out with, but it lightens up a little bit as the sip progresses. The carbonation is creamy and imparts a smooth character. It is not intensely sour, but somewhat acetic and vinegary.

This is quite a solid Kriek.

2008 bottle:

poured a deep ruby red with a finger of pink head. smells of perfume, cherries, lactobacillus, wine barrels. the taste is very tart up front, lots of sour cherry, funky barnyard wet hay, cork, cedar. medium body with high carbonation.. nice and tart.

a lovely lambic i got in a trade for 2 heady toppers. worth it in my opinion. lots of nice sourness makes me love this even more than i should! can't really feel the heavy abv, it is masked well by the tart fruityness.

2008 vintage
Pours a deep red. Small red tinted head that dissipates quickly.
A complex aroma. Acidic and funky. The cherry smell is mostly masked by the funk from the wild yeast and bacteria, but it's there if you inhale deeply. The smell the outdoors and a hint of sour cherries.
Flavor is nice and funky as well. Pretty sour but not over the top. Cherry flavor is not as pronounced as it could be, but rather serves to complement the base beer. Light body and surprisingly good carbonation for a 5 year old beer.

I've been into sour beers for several months now. Surprisingly, this is my first traditional fruited lambic. I will be making a trip to Belgium in a couple weeks and will drown myself in lambics to get a better stylistic comparison for this beer. For now however, i really love this kriek.
