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.

(Backlog) at spontaneous fermentation. Red almost purple pour. Floral, grapefruit, tart cherry aromas. Cherry flavors are light, tart toned, spice, floral and citrus, not all that lactic.

tom10101 (5805) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Draught @ 3 Fonteinen Restaurant (Beersel). Deep ruby red with a huge diminishing pink head and no lacing. Aroma is of bright sour cherries with light/moderate 3F funk and hints of lemon. Taste is of freshly picked cherries with hints of sugar/sweetness, a light but nice 3F funk presence and lemony notes. Light body. Low/no carbonation. Dry finish. A tad mouth puckering. Refreshing. A little fruitier than their Oude Kriek. Sharper acidity than Cantillon Cuve Moeder, but less fruity.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 Taster straight from the barrel in 3 Fonteinens barrel cellar. Pours clear red with no head. Aroma full on cherries, light funk and a little lemon. Flavor is light sweet and moderate acidic. The cherries so full on in the palate. Medium bodied with flat carbonation.

Small taster glass straight from the barrel in 3Fs original cellar. Clear deep red pour, no head. Aroma of bright, fruity cherry, light funk, very intense cherry, light leafy notes, lemon. Taste is sweet, nice cherry flavor with a tart-acidic finish, very light funk. Palate is flat and relatively dry for the sweet cherry flavors. Beautiful drink.

Clear red colour, pink head. Aroma of cherries, almond, marsipan, very fruity. Sour flavour, light sweet, lemons, lots of cherry, light raspberry touch. Quite full body, long finish, cherry, marsipan, some sour notes. Kept drinking this. Sheer brilliance. Most lovely beer. Instantly forgot the hangover from the day before.

Cask at the brewery. Perfect cherry nose, almonds, yogurt, some vanilla. Sweet cherry flavor, lemon, spices are also felt. Very tangy, quite acidic. Cherry flavor is amazing, obviously brought out by the added sugar. Quite sour, lactic, great.
