Small glass, restaurant Drie Fonteinen Beersel. Cherry liquor aroma. Sweet and flat. Full cherry flavor with cherry pits and bitter almonds. Full bodied. A bit alcoholic. The essence of cherries packed in a glass. Absolutely great beer! Wished I could have more, but I had to drive.

Hand pump at 3 Fonteinen (restaurant) along with a dish of rabbit in geuze!!
A true beauty - unclear deep red with a frothy pink head. Very nice and full sweet cherry and creamy aroma. Dry woody cherry flavor with a sour grapefruit note. More sourness than other kriekenlambics I have had. Sharp, dry, penetrating, outstanding!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught (hand pump), Beersel, 3 Fonteinen, May 2005.
Head is initially average sized, frothy, pink, fully diminishing.
Body is dark red.
Aroma is lightly yeast (barnyard), with notes of cherry and cassis.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic.
Medium body, watery texture, soft/flat carbonation, lightly astringent.
Surprisingly uninteresting, non-serious kriek. Almost everything Armand makes is amazing, but this one was a bit disappointing at the time I had it.

This beer has a verry light pink head and was darkred colored and somewhat cloudy. The cherry aroma gave a sweet touch, the taste as well, very complex but good.

Thanks to DrNate03 for driving us to Drie Fonteinen! Had this with lunch. Came from a handpump. Chery/raspberry colored body with no head. Nose is cherry but leaning towards sweet rather than sour. Taste is pleasant dark cherry tartness but it’s mild almost juice like at points. Like a cherry cough drop at points, as well. Body is light feeling with almost no acidity. Finish is semisweet with more cherry flavors coming through.

As ’Oude Kriek’ draft from 3 Fonteinen, which for the time being I assume to be the Kriekenlambic. Complex deep cherry aroma, sweet but subtle, tannic. Blood red hazy with no head. Light body with light carbonation, like juice. Starts with mild sweetness, medium cherry flavor, and mild acidity. Very mild overall, and more like a juice than gueuze. Great refreshing drink. Mild fruit finish and clean fruity after.

Draught form Jacobs refridgeator. Natural taste and sour as hell. I like this very much, but not for people with a bad heart.

Draught. Low carbonation. Extremely fresh and very sour. Fantastic natural cherry flavour. This was the beer I drank the most of at ZBF 2004.
