(375ml 2014 bottle from Brewberry Cave, Paris) Pours opaque deep reddish purple with a short lived small pinkish head and no lace. Aroma is intensely (!) dominated by tart cherry flesh and skin. Moderate cider vinegar acidity is balanced by a bit of sweetness to give a sour cherry pie filling quality. Typical 3F funk with some notes of wet vegetation, musty, soft barnyard, just a bit of wood. Flavour is serious sour cherry, flesh and acidic tartness with lemony lactic quality. The funk is is restrained and limited to a wet earthy character in the middle. The finish is moderately lactic and the aftertaste dry, with a good helping of cherry flesh and skin remaining. Medium bodied with fairly light carb. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this is a very cherry-dominated kriek, the criticism being that it crowds some of the other flavours that make up a more complex lambic out. It’s really quite nice stuff as you’d expect from 3 Fonteinen, it just doesn’t quite have the full package to match the fruit concentration like LPP Kriek.
