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

Poured from 375mL bottle, into balloon glass, cloudy, deep red color, with a pink head, very little lacing.

Aroma of musty cherries, cellar like, with a fruity wine-like nose, definitely cherry. Some wild yeast smell up front.

First taste is wine, then oak wood, with a tart cherry finish. I think the distinctive taste is the wild yeast used to ferment it.

Mouthfeel to me was dry, and sharp, nicely carbonated, more champagne like than beer or ale, extra dry finish. I would like someone with serious wine chops to give it a taste and see what they get.

Overall, my first Belgian Oude Kriek Lambic ale. I felt I needed to try this type to broaden my tastes a little, which it did. Not sure I would order it up in place of other types, but definitely different, and the taste profile lived up to what the Beer store said it would. I would rate it outstanding based on it's merits, but it is not my type.

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.
