Aroma is loads of cherry, coated in brett. Also some barn, hay and dust. Flavour is light sourness, quite subtle, a bit watery. Massive cherry, smooth brett. Highly drinkable.

Very nice cherry beer with some fragments of bitter. It’s foam is very week and has a terrible taste but the beer itself makes up for it.

Koelschtrinker (10966) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Milder Kirschantrunk, angenehm mild und gleichzeitig genügend aromatisch. Sehr süffig, aromatisch und rund. Nur minimal trocken, gleichzeitig aber sehr fruchtig. Zimtnuancen im Abgang. /11/11/11//11

Scopey (7221) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2011
Tap at the 20th Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. It pours a cloudy red grape colour, with no head or carbonation. The nose is daffodil, lily, sour red grape, wine, sweet cherry, subtle grapefruit and jammy dodgers. The taste is red grape, juicy cherry, spinach, tart red grapefruit, floral, lime and Granny Smith apple, with a dry finish. Well balanced, but not as sour as I expected/hoped for.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2013 draft@WoSF 2011: dark pink with no head, smells of sweet, tart cherries, taste is acidic with lots of cherries, some lemon pulp, cherry pits & slightly watery, light & flat, very nice /// Had several glasses of this @ 3F’s 60th anniversary, looks absolutely radiant, quite a dark colour. Upfront it is pure kriek, some sweetness (it is sweetened but in a good (GOOD!) way) like a good batch of Girardin Kriekenlambik, pure fruit goodness, like a less brutal Intense Red. Finished with a tang of acidity not kriek but lemon acidity, very balanced, incredible stuff, so good. // upped score from 4.2 to 4.9

Deep dark ruby with a large pink head. Soft aroma, a lot of cherry, quite dry. The sweet cherry tries to cut across the funky dryness of flavour and carries on to the finish. But the dryness is more robust. Quite sharp and quenching. Soft body and flat.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 6, 2011
Versione addolcita e riservata alla spina della kriek di 3fonteinen, buona comunque, ma non capisco proprio la necessità di addolcire un prodotto di per sé già piuttosto accessibile.

From a small box at ACBF ’11. Tasted side by side with the Scharbeekse Kriekenlambic. This is less complex. Far more straight forward fruit and lacks some of the intense funk of the other version. Both are good. This one was very drinkable, but if I had to choose, I’d go for the Scharbeekse one as it had that extra level of complexity. Still very good though.
Earlier Rating: 8/26/2010 Total Score: 4.2
Happy 50th Birthday Fonefan!!. On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green. Rich raspberry colour. Sour cherry and some funk aroma. Salt n Vinegar crisps. Good fruit. Great balanced sourness and the beer I had the most of this evening.

ACBF. Pink beer with no head. Side-by-side with the Scharbeekse. Aroma is candied cherries, woodiness. Mouth flavourful with the cherries, quite a sweet roundedness. Nice amount of yeasty funk. Brilliant beer.
