Since Boon has virtually disappeared from the shelves around here, I decided to grab this one last bottle that was sitting at the store. Poured in to a snifter, this Kriek comes out a hazed rose color, with just a small lacing for head. The smell is very earthy, with the cherries bringing a tart yet sweet quality to this somewhat funky smelling brew. The taste is really all cherry, but not as sour as some of the other fruit Lambics I have encountered in the past. Instead, this one is just right, coming off slightly sweet, but with the wild sour flavors dominating. Still, there is no overkill here, and the finish is actually more juicy than dry. Mouthfeel is light, and has a good dose of carbonation. Drinkability is superb, nuff said. Although I generally love all Lambic, Boon may be my favorite as of right now. I recently was at a huge Lambic tasting with some friends/fellow BAs, and the Marriage Parfait that got broken out was easily my favorite amongst a lot of well respected examples of the style. Anyway, lets just hope that this isn't the end of Boon in this neck of the woods. Cheers

A classic Belgian fruit beer whose taste and aroma are simply saturated with the tart tang of Cherries. A sipping beer rather than a session beer, it needs to be served in a goblet or wine glass to appreciate it's full flavour. A good dessert beer for after a full meal.
