Drie Fonteinen Oude Kriek...
To produce its Kriek, the Boon brewery uses its ancestral recipe. Kriek Boon is a mixture of young and old lambic, matured in oak barrels. After six months of waiting, fresh cherries are added. After clarification and filtration, the beer is finally bottled, after which it is sold.
This Belgian beer has a beautiful ruby colour covered by a pretty coloured foam. The uncompromising nose, powerfully evokes the cherry. On the palate, this same cherry flavour takes over the rest, magnified by a slight acidity. The aftertaste is bitter end even brings a little more complexity to the beer. A Kriek like no other.
This cherry-red lambic poured with a huge pink head, most of which dissipated rather quickly. There is a strong acidic aroma. The very mellow cherry flavor indicates use of the local lambeek cherries in the brew. The final product presents a slightly sweet cherry flavor, followed by a more tart finish. This is an excellent example of the kriek lambic style.
