Drie Fonteinen’s Oude Kriek is a purist pleaser. Blood red color, pink mostly-fizzy head, and lots of lacing left behind. Vinous fruit and oak notes, and some reserved horse aromas. Mild tartness on the palate. Lovely balance between sweet and sour. It’s hard to imagine many better examples of the Kriek. This brew is a very special creation.

375 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 7/14/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red color with a minimal foamy pink head with poor retention, that reduces to a ring of lace that lingers. Minimal lacing on the glass. Aromas of sweet/tart cherries, strawberry, lemon, apple, cherry skin, almond, oak, vanilla, leather, hay, light funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of cherries, fruity/funky/acidic yeast, and moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of sweet/tart cherries, strawberry, lemon, apple, cherry skin, almond, oak, vanilla, leather, hay, light funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/acidic tartness and light tannic oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of cherries, strawberry, lemon, apple, cherry skin, almond, oak, vanilla, leather, hay, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of cherries, fruity/funky/acidic yeast, and moderate malt flavors; with a great sweet/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from acidity as well. Light-medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth smooth and moderately acidic/creamy/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a great cherry fruit Lambic. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of cherries, fruity/funky/acidic yeast, and moderate malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the balanced acidity. Was hoping for a bit more depth in the flavors; but this was still quite impressive, and very enjoyable all around.
