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.

tabernae (178) - Latina, - NOV 18, 2012
Di colore rossastra, con schiuma praticamente assente, questa "birra" ha la capacità di bilanciare perfettamente le note acidule del lambic con la dolcezza mai invadente delle amarene e i sentori di rovere. in bocca il delicato aroma di amarene diventa più complesso e scontroso man mano che la birra si scalda nel bicchiere. Bella, leggera, delicata ed elegante come le donne di Beersel.

Cunningham (5673) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2015
Red pour with a frothy pink head that soon vanish into a thin layer. Cherries and green apples in the nose. Medium (+) body and a pleasant carbonation. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity. Smooth nice flavor with cherries, green apples and wood. Nice stuff. If you like cherries then. Otherwise it is no point drinking this.
[Bottle from YNWA Beershop in Kolding, Denmark]

De geur vind ik niet zo geweldig, kan er niet zo snelsnel dingen in herkennen. De smaak daarentegen is een echt klein bommetje, dit ontploft echt snel in je mond. Vind de oude geuze wel een betere dorstlesser. Een bier om geregeld een paar flesjes van mee te nemen, maar ik ga er niet specifiek naar opzoek. De smaak krijgt van mij wel een dikke 9!

Zwiebel88 (610) - GERMANY - JUL 17, 2015
Leuchtend rot, pinker Schaum, der direkt verfliegt. Geruch nach sauren Kirschen, Früchtetee, etwas medizinisch. Am Gaumen extrem intensive Kirschnoten, Kirschkerne, Sauerkirsch, Himbeer, Zitronensaft, Eiche, Rotwein, Tannine, dunkle Trauben. Mundgefühl sehr smooth, wenig Karbo, trocken, ziemlich sauer, sehr gutes KRiek.

simont1 (417) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2015
Drank next to De Cam Oude Kriek, 22 May 2014 bottle. Deep red with a white thick head. Aroma of cherry candy lemon, light farmhouse, lemon. Taste of cherry, a bit watery, light funk, cough drop aftertaste, very simpleminded and cherry juice like. This was sooo much less complex and interesting compared to the De Cam.

Bij van Moll, met gazpacho. Rozerode kriek. Nauwelijks schuim, zure geur. Zoals je een oude kriek verwacht, lekker friszuur!
