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.

Drunk on draft at 3 Fonteinen in Beersel. Very strong cherry flavour. Sweetness varies but some sugar added. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
(Draught @ 3F OBD ’13 / 60th anniversary)

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.

Draught at the 3 Fonteinen Restaurant. Clear deep ruby, creamy pink head. Fantastic rich almond and cinnamon cherry aroma, some barnyard notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Semi sweet, medium acidity.

330 ml tap at 3Fonteinen restaurant. Pours deep red with purple hue and a pink head. Nose is intensely cherry, some almond, honey (added sugar) and vanilla (a tad of). Taste is sweet and sour with an exploding fruitiness; this is genuinely one of the best straight Krieks (not Oude Kriek) that I have ever had. Really like this; it drinks like water.

mcberko (18060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
On tap at 3 Fonteinen Restaurant, pours a dark pinkish ruby red with a large pink head. Aroma of dry potent cherries, classic 3F funk, and more cherries. Flavour brings out both sweet and sour cherries, so pure and potent, with a touch of funk buried underneath. The cherries completely coat the palate. Excellent stuff.

Draft @ 3F during TdG ’13. The pour’s hazy purple with a gorgeous, massive purple head. Very vivid, bright nose. Fruit orchard, bright sour cherries, pie filling, a bit of dirt and earth. The taste is earthy unwashed cherries. Lovely mild sourness. Just a hint of citric bitterness rounds the edges. Soft and so easy to drink. This is just a wonderful beverage. Fantastic.

BelgBeerGeek (1308) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013
At 3 fonteinen Restaurant, as the owner said sweetned from tap
Head: small, white
Colour: deep red
Smell: slight sweet, sour, cherries, little dry
Taste: reminds allot of de 3F Kriek, but a little dryer and sweeter, it’s not bad even though it’s sweetned, but i’d love to try this one without the added sugar !

On draft at 3 Fonteinen. I enjoyed one of these while chatting away with Armand on a rainy day. Anyhow, the beer is ruby red with a thick purplish, pink head. The aroma is cherry juice and hints of yeast. Much sweeter than a standard 3 Fonteinen kriek. Sugary sweet cherries, cherry pie, pie crust with hints of tartness in the finish. Lingering fruity sugars. A tasty beer for sure, but I much prefer the regular, more tart, krieks from this awesome brewery. Absolutely worth a try if you are fortunate enough to make the pilgrimage here.
