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.

Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to my snifter, showing a cloudy, red color, with a frothy layer of pink head foam, and wavy spray to the lacing. The nose was musty, lightly organic & fertilizer, then tart cherry. Medium bodied, with good spritz to the effervescence, the taste was amped tartness & cherry, with some oakiness, moderate earthy bitterness, and a dry finish. Once past the introduction, quite enjoyable.

Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl à la brasserie, couleur rouge, mousse blanche et grosse effervescence. Nez sur l’acidité et la cerise. Attaque en bouche sur la cerise avec une pointe très piquante et fin de bouche acidulée sur le kirsh !

Simply marvellous. Strong cherry on the nose. Funky barnyard, red wine, slight leather. Pleasingly sour. One of the best fruity lambics out there.

El cielo en la tierra . Acidez en nariz y en boca. La cereza esta presente pero camaflada por notas dulces. La acidez malica deliciosamente despuntada

Rubí limpio con espuma rosada ligera. Aromas de fruto rojo ácido, ciruela, ligero cítrico y moho. Cuerpo ligero, sabor intenso de frutos rojos, malta, acidez redonda y larga hasta un final seco.

Bue en bouteille de 37,5cl. Nez cerise intense. Palais acide, fruité. Bel équilibre. Enfin une kriek que j'apprécie ;)

Bottle shared, thanks to the gods of beer. 10 year aged, straight out of a treasure chest. This is the simple definition of greatness, those cherries probably came from heaven. Maybe a tad dusty but that was expected, up there with Cantillon as the very best Kriek in this Universe.
