In the summer of 2020, the cherries were harvested to make this delicate, traditional fruit beer based on Belgian Schaarbeek cherries and lambic.
The fresh cherries were fermented with lambic beer that had already aged for 18 months in wooden barrels - a total of 270 grams of cherries per litre. The resulting cherry lambic was then left to mature for another 6 months in oak casks.
After this additional aging, the beer was bottled on Oct. 19, 2021. The Boon Millésime is re-fermented in the bottle and can safely continue to age for several more years.
