Boon Kriek

The cork almost took my head off as it shot out of the bottle like a bullet and hit the living room ceiling. You have been warned! This was a taste of things to come as the carbonation proved to be very annoying. Even after letting the beer settle and despite some painstakingly careful pouring, the amount of froth and carbonation was excessive making it a pain in the backside to get at.
Anyway, having got it into the glass it looks a dirty red/brown, murky color with a very feint pink froth on top. The froth is persistent. It’s somewhat tart, but at the same time sweet (if that’s possible) a real sweet and sour experience. The cherries are not obvious to me, apart from the color, in fact it seems like much more of a general fruit experience than a specific one.
Very refreshing and would be an ideal ladies aperitif, but not something I’m going to be drinking a lot of. For me this is OK, but strictly novelty, it’s simply too much like a wine cooler for my taste. Not really my idea of “beer”.
