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.

On handpump, this version unsweetened, lovely garnet colour with a tight pink head, no condition at all - quite flat. Fruity and lightly tart, dry-sweet and refreshing.

RexTalionis (3775) - FINLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Draught. Dark red in color with an off-white head. Upfront there’s some wooden barrels, cherries, old cellar notes and bit of sour notes in aroma. Feels quite smooth and very well balanced though. More wood, mild barnyard funkyness and some cherries in taste. Overall quite pleasant and tasty one. More cherries appears towards the end again. Good one.
