COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
3 Fonteinen (Oude) Kriekenlambik is the result of macerating hand-picked whole sour cherries on young lambic for at least four months, in a proportion of one kilogram of fruit per litre of lambic (and possibly blended with some more young lambic). Fruit intensity ranges from minimum 35% to 50%. Aside some selected bars (e.g. 20th Anniversary of Akkurat in Stockholm, Sweden), this sour cherry lambic is available at given times in the lambik-O-droom.

rayaron (1811) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAY 17, 2017
Toer de Gueze 2017. Draught at 3 Fonteinen lambik-O-droom. Deep red with pinkish head. The aroma has notes of raspberry, yeasts, wood and strawberry, syrupy. Sour flavor with notes of raspberry pie, wood and lemon, a bit acidic. Dry, flat, medium-bodied. Great stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2017 On tap at 3 Fonteinen lambik-O-droom during Toer de Geuze 2017. Beautiful crystal clear red color. Tons of cherries in the nose, oak and barnyard. Sour, fresh cherries, lemon peel, berries, a bit lactic, tasty. Light-bodied, dry finish. Great.

teorn88 (7671) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 8, 2016
Draft at the brewery from a decanter. It pours a clean deep ruby color with a small bubbly pink head. Aroma is funky lemony fruity sweet with plenty of cherries and grassy notes. Taste is also fruity and lightly funky grassy tart lemony, more cherries and almonds. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, tasty

dimeon (228) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 23, 2016
A: Pours deep ruby red with little fizz and no head.little fizz and no head. N: Overwhelming horse blanket with only a faint hint of cherry. T: Horse blanket again with almost no detectable cherry now. Bracingly sour. Lemon notes appear. P: Little bit of cherry and sherbet try to make an appearance before horse blanket and farmyard smells take over again, going into a long, lingering sourness. O: Always a privilege to drink an artisanal lambic, and this one is right up there with the best I have tasted.

Draught @ 3 Fonteinen Open Beer Days shared with Thompson. [Note: upon asking the staff said this was the beer] Beautiful dark red dark pink color, average sized pink head that lasts for quite a long time. Smell and taste cherries, softly sour, balanced soft cherry sour mixed with cherry sweetness. Very nice!

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.
