Notes: Again, the basic old and young lambic are matured in oak casks. But here we add to one year-old lambic about 400 grams of real cherries per litre. This creates a second fermentation in the casks. Oude Kriek Boon then undergoes a further fermentation in the bottle and has an alcohol volume of 6.5%. After several months, the flavour has matured to the desired taste.

Oude Kriek Boon is a test of your patience. It should lie about 2 years in the bottle. At first, it tastes of fruit, especially sour cherries. Oude Kriek Boon eventually evolves into a deep taste reminiscent of Port or Madeira wine. This is kriek at its best.

Shared 375 ml green bottle at local tasting. 2008 vintage. Deep red colour, small pink head. Lovely aroma of sour cherries and farmhouse, hints of marzipan. Fine flavour too, sour cherries but not lemony, hints of almonds. Harmonious and pleasant.

Purple foam over garnet; sandalwood, pomegranate and balsamic nose; big juicy berries that cuts dry with a touch of funk, fizzy + clean, slight tin.

4 4 4.25 4 4

Lots of round fruit. A depth that’s maybe more earthy than funky. Mature, but I'm guessing not a home run next to Mariage Parfait Kriek.

2nd tasting: Auburn; oaky vanilla nose; pomegranate + red currants plus bitterness from cherry stones; sharp.
Deeper + tarter than Kriek Boon - more about wood than funk. Bitter + thin with one note tartness next to Mariage Parfait, though, but comes into its own for intricate fruit.
Quite rightly, the middle of the range.

On tap at zwanze day 2017. Vibrant ruby red. Light pink head.

Lots of cherries, but too sweet and syrupy and not enough funk or tartness.

I didn't finish my pour of this one. 3.0

OK 2009 on draft in Rome consumed 1/18

Light pink head. Dark ruby color.
Tons of great funk here that melds with cherries that have been toned down quiet a bit. Not medicinal at all. No sweetness. This beer is completely different than the fresh draft version I had. Very impressed with this one. 4.4

Samled at Beertemple. Dark ruby pour, clear, with a fine pinkish head. Smells like macerated cherries and lambic funk. The taste is light sour and sweet, with strong cherry notes. Light carbnation, light body and a sweet and sour fruity aftertaste.

375 ml bottle Beergium - Pours dark cherry with a light cherry coloured foamy head. Nice lacing. Medium carbonation. Smell - over ripened fruits. Taste - Tart foretaste with a bready, cherry slightly bitter aftertaste. Very nice kriek.
