COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oude Kriek 3 Fonteinen is produced by ripening of cherries (both the flesh and the seeds) in young Lambic. This process takes between 6 to 8 months. After bottling the beer matures for at least 4 months in a warm room where the spontaneous fermentation in the bottle is done.
The head of Oude Kriek is very sensitive to the concentration of the cherry seeds containing oil and may differ from one year to the other.
On old Cherry 3 Fonteinen, no flavorings, sweeteners, or dyes added which makes this beer very natural and is especially thirst quenching.

Note: Recent labels may show the beer to contain 35% of Schaerbeekse Krieken.

sweet, perfumy, soft, cherry aroma. a little funky and a little woody, but not much. pours purple with beautiful pink head. lightly tart, sweet, and cherry flavor. some unripe raspberry/blackberry notes as well. a little woody and not very funky for a lambic. easy drinking, but would have liked more barnyard funk and more sourness.

TheCametron (1963) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours Ruby with an initial fluffy Pink head which fades fast. Tart cherry aroma. A good dose of funk. Taste of vinegar, lemon and of course sour cherry. Nice degree of bitterness and a nice dry finish.

Holmen1 (3215) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 21, 2015
Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, Cardinal april-15: etter mange strålende gode fatøl fikk vi servert en ganerenser med mørkerød farge og kort skum. Vidunderlig intens aroma og smak av kjøttfulle, sure kirsebær. Elegant syrlighet med sprudlende frisk ettersmak. Med sitt innhold av 35% kirsebær (iflg. etiketten) kan den fort inngå som en av de anbefalte fem om dagen. Eminent drikkbar, som champagne for ølhunder, og en bauta å navigere etter.

gunnar (6113) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 21, 2015
Bottle at Cardinal. Pours dark reddish with a tiny layer of bubbles. Inviting aroma of meaty, fresh sour cherries, this would be like it smells in heaven on a spring day, or maybe not. Taste is also full of those red high hanging cherries, fresh sourness, a wonderful elixir this one.

Holmen2 (1572) - NORWAY - APR 20, 2015
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 20.04.15. Clear ruby red. Pale pink head. Mature aroma of mature cherries. Complex taste with slightly sour cherries. Utterly superb, with high drinkability.

Sigmund (5558) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 16, 2015
375 ml corked & caged green bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5%. Red colour, moderate pink head. Lovely aroma of sour cherries and brettanomyces / farmhouse kitchen. Sour and tart flavour, medium dry, sour cherries galore, also lemony notes.

Colour was very cloudy, lacked flavor compared to other cherry beers. Head went in seconds, fizz also lasted seconds... Disappointed
