From a small box at ACBF 11. Tasted side by side with the Scharbeekse Kriekenlambic. This is less complex. Far more straight forward fruit and lacks some of the intense funk of the other version. Both are good. This one was very drinkable, but if I had to choose, Id go for the Scharbeekse one as it had that extra level of complexity. Still very good though.

Happy 50th Birthday Fonefan!!. On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green. Rich raspberry colour. Sour cherry and some funk aroma. Salt n Vinegar crisps. Good fruit. Great balanced sourness and the beer I had the most of this evening.

ACBF. Pink beer with no head. Side-by-side with the Scharbeekse. Aroma is candied cherries, woodiness. Mouth flavourful with the cherries, quite a sweet roundedness. Nice amount of yeasty funk. Brilliant beer.

jfb (5790) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2011
(draught) pours a hazy bright ruby colour with no head. aroma of juicy cherry pulp, with a hint of citrus fruits and notes of herbs and grass, very fresh and appetizing. flavour is mostly the same, cherries, lemons and herbs, with a medium sweetness and light sour tinge, very easy to drink. medium-bodied with no carbonation.

kappldav123 (6015) - GERMANY - MAR 6, 2011
Draught at the ACBF 2011. Special version with frozen Polish cherries. Deep red in the glass, small head. Starts mild fruity-berry, mild-sourish, not too intense. Finish still mild-fruity, a but juice-like, fruitiness dominated the sour part. Wonderful cherry aroma with every gulp. Very drinkable. Well done!

Bontus (778) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2011
Draught @ ACBF 2011. In a side tasting with Schaarbeekse kriek. Headless perfect red pink beer. Sour cherry nose, but not very sour after all. Good funkyness & astringency.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2011
On tap at Copenhagen Oldage on 20 May 2006. Really rather startling red colour. Soft, fruity aroma. Very dry - more so than tart/acid. Much less fruit on the palate than in the aroma. Couple that with a very flat mouthfeel (of course) and it seemed a little lacking in depth. Not my favourite 3 Fonteinen. Difficult to say when I might see this again but Ill give it another go, preferably on home turf.

A rich red coloured lambic with a slight white/pink coloured head. The aroma is sour acidity and good fruitiness. More raspberry than cherry. The taste is nice and definitely cherry this time. Quite restrained and easy to drink.

[3243-20100802] Tap. Lovely cherry aroma of lambic yeast and tart cherry skins. Hazy, dark red body with a quick foamy white head. Super fruity cherry flavour has tons of thick sour lambic yeast and a long fruity aftertaste. Medium body. Wonderfully drinkable and a beautiful start to a night of celebratory drinking!

3font krieklambic. Served from the barrel at 3 fonteinen.... Pours a deep raspberry reddish hue, mostly non-transparent with light bubbles, mostly still as it would be from the barrel... Aroma of light bouquet of cherry not too much of a funky essence bu rather a clean fruit flavor... Flavors are smooth cherry, mildly sour with a very little acidic bite but enough to add some slight texture and mouthfeel to the otherwise still/quiet lambic. 8/4/7/3/15
