Boon Brewery uses the turbid-wort method. At 6 am, we mix ground corn and water and let it settle, before cooking for a few minutes. We add boiling water to the mash, after which the mixture becomes sweeter. We then let the mixture come to rest in the mixing kettle, before tapping the sweet wort to the second boiler. Then it's time to add aged hops for a longer boil. At night, the beer is left in an open cooling vessel. The shutters of the brewing room allow air-borne yeasts to come into contact with the wort. The next morning we pump the cooled wort into the wooden barrels, where it begins to ferment spontaneously after 2 to 3 days.
Kriek Mariage Parfait is an Old Style Kriek of exceptional excellence. 400 g of wild cherries per litre are fermented together with a strong Lambic of spontaneous fermentation and aged on 6,200 litre oak foudres (large wooden casks) for 5 to 6 months. Kriek Mariage Parfait is naturally clarified and referments in the bottle. It is unsweetened, unfiltered, unpasteurised and has no artificial flavours, preservatives or colourings added. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name. Pour slowly in a flute glass without disturbing the yeast sediment in the bottle and enjoy this epitome of traditional Lambic brewing.

The cherries and young lambic create a red beer that is both natural and fresh, with an absolutely unforgettable sweet and sour taste. This is kriek as it should be, with nothing but real cherries and lambic. There is no place for artificial colourings or flavourings.
For this speciality, we use old and young lambic beer that has aged in our oak casks. When the lambic is 6 months old, we add 25% black cherries. This provokes the second fermentation. We then clarify, filter and bottle it. Kriek Boon has an alcohol volume of 4%.
