UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 12.7 oz bottle poured into shaker. Clear red to purple with no head or lacing. Aroma is tart cherries, cherry cough syrup, sour cherry, breadcrumb malt, and some oak. Taste is moderately sour with lactic acidity under cherry skin flavors, lightly sweet cherry juice, and if you focus there?s a little wood and leather bitterness; the medicinal flavor is prominent, which I find unfortunate. Light to medium body, sticky texture, low carbonation, and a lip-puckering dry finish.

neongolden (742) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
(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.

CraftBeerNick (1211) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle in garden, 7th June 15. Pours bright red, some bubbles. Aroma is sour cherries, some citrus pithe, straw. Taste is rich cherries, slightly sour, not overly, it’s a good beer, but lacks the complexity of some of its peers, enjoyed all the same

Bottle at three men strong tasting. Pours Red with a nice little had. Aroma of tart, cherrys, some fruity bitternes. Taste is the same, very balanced not to sweet, and not tarty. Well done.
