Boon "Kriek"
Brouwerij F. Boon - Lembeek, Belgium
Lambic (ABV 5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Flute]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a murky dark cranberry red with a very small (almost non-existent) light pink fizzy head that was fully diminishing in just a few seconds and had no lacing to speak of.

The aroma was all about the cherries with a mild caramel malt and a sweet yeast and had a hint of candi-sugar and a slight sour odor.

The taste was abundantly sweet and a tad acidic with a very big cherry presence throughout, with the finish having a hint of candi-sugar and a nice mellow tartness towards the end. The flavor hung on for a decent duration with the sweet-tart cherry taste fading ever so slowly.

Mouthfeel was just a tiny bit beyond light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a soft mellow carbonation.

Overall a nice fruity tart Lambic that was extremely drinkable, reminds me a little of a Sour Cherry Jolly Rancher...
