Boon Kriek Schaarbeekse 2018 375ml

Kriek Lambic | 6% abv

Boon Oude Kriek with 250 grams per litre or Schaarbeekse cherries, a rare varietal of wild cherry native to the area around northern Brussels. These powerful cherries, harvested in 2018, support the mellow and soft sourish flavor of the lambic with a very powerful but balanced cherry expression.

Schaarbeekse cherries were once common in the production of Kriek lambic, and are considered THE traditional cherry for Kriek, but continued urban expansion around Brussels has dramatically decreased the availability of this varietal, making it increasingly rare for Kriek production.
