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.

sebletitje (10500) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2009
Hand pump/draft @ 3 Fonteinen. what to say, easily the best kriek I have ever had. pours dark red going on bordeaux, thin reddish head. aroma filled with cherries, very fresh had a nice farm/field like aroma with light tartness. taste, lots and lots of cherries, lactic - acidic mouthfeel with notes of wood. Overall palate kept enough sweetness not to make this a tart bomb. Amazingly natural, no feel of any additional fake extracts and sweeteners that seem to plague so many fruit beers.
