Brewery: Brouwerij Boon
Style: Lambic - Fruited
This Schaarbeekse cherry is a variety of tart-acidic cherry which was unique to the Lambic Region that was always used for Kriek. The supply decreased substantially over the years and became less common for use in fruit lambic. So to make a Kriek with these cherries is to be truly Traditional.
Oude Kriek Boon is one of the finest examples of the 100% spontaneous fermentation fruit-Lambic style. 400 g of wild cherries per liter are fermented together with a blend of young and old Boon Lambic that has been aged in oak casks. After clarification, the Oude kriek is kegged and refermented. It is unsweetened, unfiltered, unpasteurized and has no artificial flavourings, preservatives or colourings added. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name.
