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.

Poured into a tulip. Not sure of the vintage. 3.50 A: Pours a clear deep amber color. Didn’t get much of a head going. 4.00 S: Big fruity cherry, then some more cherry. Funky lactic acid. Woody earthiness, grassy. 4.25 T: Again lots of cherry. Big woodiness. Lots of tangy lactic acid with much less acetic. The flavors mesh together quite well. 4.00 M: Lighter medium body. Light, but spritzy carbonation. Super smooth. 4.25 D: Great beer. Always love 3F. ★ 477 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 16, 2014

Pours such a deep ruby red with a small pinkish head. Nose has dark fruit, cherry and lime, some almond juice and vanilled oak. Taste: mineral but intense cherry flavours and a little lemon. Not totally complex compared to other 3F’s. Mouthfeel is light to medium with a light carb tinkle on the tongue. The aftertaste is a lot like a kriekenlambik from cask, lots of mineral berries, a little lemon but wothout the earthy, tart, sour funk, fruitbomb!

NBird (540) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2015
From de bierkoning July 15 Looks..Very dark cherry red, sml pink head. Smells..Floral and fruity cherries.. Lots of them.. Some of the old socks too. Tastes..full of delicious cherries, it’s maybe not as sour (though more fruity) than the 3f oude kriek, but this is delicious and not ’very’ astringent .. So much cherry goodness.

Delt 375 ml flaske. Dyp klar burgunder kropp med et kortlevd rosa skum. Deilig rik og lett amøraktig kirsebæraroma. Intense bærsyrlig kirsebærsmak. Friskt og deilig.

JBPortland (1251) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 14, 2015
375ml bottle pours dark red violet with no head and a few bubbles, totally flat. Nose is musty wet earth, damp wood, cherry juice and lots of vinous dark grape character. Taste is unfortunately totally lifeless on the mouthfeel, does have tons of bright semi sweet juciy cherry, funky wet oak and earth, basement. Finishes semi sweet, some dry musty old wood, vinous grape and cherry layers. Drinks much more like a red wine than a beer, enjoyable for sure but I prefer regular 3F Kriek to this by a mile.

Bule (1326) - California, USA - SEP 9, 2015
375ml bottled May 2014. Pours a deep purple color and looks to have no carbonation when poured. Bubbles form and there is a nice carbonation level on the low side. Loads of cherry deliciousness and perfect lambic sourness to go with it.

heman (256) - Tychy, POLAND - SEP 2, 2015
Intensywny aromat wiśniowy stopniowo dominowany jest przez dziką stronę piwa: stajnia, końska derka. W smaku wytrawne, kwaśne, ale nie przesadnie z wyraźnym musem wiśniowym. Niezwykle pijalne.

Bottle. Pours a deep ruby red with a small, pink head. Aroma has cherries, jam, oak, dry tartness. Taste is sour, fruity, jammy with marzipan sweetness. Dry and tart finish. High carb and acidic body. Nice!
