rather dissapointing... started out nice: indeed an intense red beer. aroma: sweet, very much cherry, hints of lambic present in background but nothing much. taste: sweet, not really cloying, but rather close. this beer is not worth the extra cost (6 euro a bottle at the brewery) and I dare say that should it be the ’new’ Oude Kriek by De troch (or so) it would get burned. it is the most mediocre 3fonteinen lambic that I have ever tasted...

axl (423) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2016
Sample @Linköping Beer Expo 2016. Red with pink head. Aroma is acidic with cherries, wood, barnyard, funk and light manure. Taste offers high acidity and a certain sweetness with cherries, wood, vanilla and funk. Medium mouthfeel, minimal carbonation, medium sourness overall and clean woody cherry finish.

freretoc (1479) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 22, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl à la brasserie. Couleur rouge avec une belle mousse rouge mais peu d’effervescence. Nez sur la cerise et le kirsh. En bouche attaque sur la cerise, la griotte le kirsh et le fruit rouge bel équilibre avec une un côté acidulé du lambic parfaitement bien intégré dans l’acide de la cerise.

Boutip (5581) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle: Poured a clear deep reddish color lambic with a nice large pink head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart cherry notes with some mild barnyard notes is quite nice. Taste is dominated by loads of fresh tart cherry notes with some mild barnyard notes and some oak notes. Body is full with good carbonation. Solid kriek from 3F with cherry overtaking some of the funky notes. Really refreshing and something I would like to have on a hot summer day.
