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.

From cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Beautiful rich red/pinky purple colour with a massive pink frothy head of tiny bubbles which disappears slowly. Aroma is big cherries, bit of lavender slightly funkiness and a bit sweet too. Taste is slight cherry sourness initially and then mellowing into big fruitiness. Low carbonation but tingly on the tongue. Light bodied but very drinkable. This is a very special beer.

skortila (5852) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2011
@ ACBF 2011. The aroma has fresh cherries, some horseblanket, some marzipan. Deep red coloured beer with no head. The taste is light sour, tart is very fruity and fresh. Smooth. Really a nice one.

At Drie Fonteinen during last week’s Belgium trip. Reviewed from notes. Served in a Drie Fonteinen tumbler. Pours a very bright red with a two-finger, long-lasting pink head and some night lacing as it finally dies down. The nose was full of powerful cherries. Very tart with a bit of sweetness. The cherry character in this was quite amazing. Super fresh with a nice bit of acidity in the end. Slightly puckering throughout. The freshness of this one was unmatched and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit more than the regular Oude Kriek.

Glass at Moeder Lambic in Brussels. This was fantastic!! Bright cloudy ruby colour with a pink 2 finger head that stayed around even though the beer was essentially flat. I must admit that I love the lack of carbonation as it gives this beer a wonderfully smooth creamy texture. There was lots and lots of funk here along with the smokey cherry stones. The flavour was almonds and cherries that were very fresh. Great beer

Aroma is loads of cherry, coated in brett. Also some barn, hay and dust. Flavour is light sourness, quite subtle, a bit watery. Massive cherry, smooth brett. Highly drinkable.

Very nice cherry beer with some fragments of bitter. It’s foam is very week and has a terrible taste but the beer itself makes up for it.

3.3
Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Milder Kirschantrunk, angenehm mild und gleichzeitig genügend aromatisch. Sehr süffig, aromatisch und rund. Nur minimal trocken, gleichzeitig aber sehr fruchtig. Zimtnuancen im Abgang. /11/11/11//11
