Draught @ 3 Fonteinen Restaurant (Beersel). Deep ruby red with a huge diminishing pink head and no lacing. Aroma is of bright sour cherries with light/moderate 3F funk and hints of lemon. Taste is of freshly picked cherries with hints of sugar/sweetness, a light but nice 3F funk presence and lemony notes. Light body. Low/no carbonation. Dry finish. A tad mouth puckering. Refreshing. A little fruitier than their Oude Kriek. Sharper acidity than Cantillon Cuvée Moeder, but less fruity.

kermis (4742) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Taster straight from the barrel in 3 Fonteinen’s barrel cellar. Pours clear red with no head. Aroma full on cherries, light funk and a little lemon. Flavor is light sweet and moderate acidic. The cherries so full on in the palate. Medium bodied with flat carbonation.

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Small taster glass straight from the barrel in 3F’s original cellar. Clear deep red pour, no head. Aroma of bright, fruity cherry, light funk, very intense cherry, light leafy notes, lemon. Taste is sweet, nice cherry flavor with a tart-acidic finish, very light funk. Palate is flat and relatively dry for the sweet cherry flavors. Beautiful drink.

Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2013
Clear red colour, pink head. Aroma of cherries, almond, marsipan, very fruity. Sour flavour, light sweet, lemons, lots of cherry, light raspberry touch. Quite full body, long finish, cherry, marsipan, some sour notes. Kept drinking this. Sheer brilliance. Most lovely beer. Instantly forgot the hangover from the day before.

KyotoLefty (6141) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 7, 2013
Cask at the brewery. Perfect cherry nose, almonds, yogurt, some vanilla. Sweet cherry flavor, lemon, spices are also felt. Very tangy, quite acidic. Cherry flavor is amazing, obviously brought out by the added sugar. Quite sour, lactic, great.

gEUS (982) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2013
330 ml tap at 3Fonteinen restaurant. Pours deep red with purple hue and a pink head. Nose is intensely cherry, some almond, honey (added sugar) and vanilla (a tad of). Taste is sweet and sour with an exploding fruitiness; this is genuinely one of the best straight Krieks (not Oude Kriek) that I have ever had. Really like this; it drinks like water.
