Oude Kriek Boon is one of the finest examples of the 100% spontaneous fermentation fruit-Lambic style. 400 g of wild cherries per litre 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, unpasteurised and has no artificial flavorings, preservatives or colorings added. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name. Pour slowly in a flute glass.
This Schaarbeekse cherry is a variety 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.”
