Brouwerij Boon Oude Schaarbeekse Kriek (2019)14007452
Frank Boon is the godfather of lambic. It is truly impossible to overstate his importance - lambic would not be where it is today without Frank, instrumental to the geuze revival and the existence of many other iconic producers.
"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."
