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.
(Draught @ 3F OBD ’13 / 60th anniversary)

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.

Draught at the 3 Fonteinen Restaurant. Clear deep ruby, creamy pink head. Fantastic rich almond and cinnamon cherry aroma, some barnyard notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Semi sweet, medium acidity.

gEUS (1503) - 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.

mcberko (9732) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
On tap at 3 Fonteinen Restaurant, pours a dark pinkish ruby red with a large pink head. Aroma of dry potent cherries, classic 3F funk, and more cherries. Flavour brings out both sweet and sour cherries, so pure and potent, with a touch of funk buried underneath. The cherries completely coat the palate. Excellent stuff.

jackl (5816) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2013
Draft @ 3F during TdG ’13. The pour’s hazy purple with a gorgeous, massive purple head. Very vivid, bright nose. Fruit orchard, bright sour cherries, pie filling, a bit of dirt and earth. The taste is earthy unwashed cherries. Lovely mild sourness. Just a hint of citric bitterness rounds the edges. Soft and so easy to drink. This is just a wonderful beverage. Fantastic.

BelgBeerGeek (1297) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013
At 3 fonteinen Restaurant, as the owner said sweetned from tap
Head: small, white
Colour: deep red
Smell: slight sweet, sour, cherries, little dry
Taste: reminds allot of de 3F Kriek, but a little dryer and sweeter, it’s not bad even though it’s sweetned, but i’d love to try this one without the added sugar !

PriorL (2784) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 TAP at Tour de Geuze. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: dark red beer, stable red/white/pink head. The head stays on for almost an hour?? I thought this was lambic... could be given the wrong thing, but I asked for a ’Kriekenlambik’ so should be right. Nose: very sour, but compensated with a red fruit sweetness. Mostly cherries noticeable. Taste: Begins soft and fruity, but finishes rather sour. A nice beer in total, but a little to sweet in my opinion.

On draft at 3 Fonteinen. I enjoyed one of these while chatting away with Armand on a rainy day. Anyhow, the beer is ruby red with a thick purplish, pink head. The aroma is cherry juice and hints of yeast. Much sweeter than a standard 3 Fonteinen kriek. Sugary sweet cherries, cherry pie, pie crust with hints of tartness in the finish. Lingering fruity sugars. A tasty beer for sure, but I much prefer the regular, more tart, krieks from this awesome brewery. Absolutely worth a try if you are fortunate enough to make the pilgrimage here.
