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.

Deep, dark red with a frothy pink head. Big pie-cherry nose, sweet wild cherry flavor becomes somewhat tart and dry on the tongue, with some sharpness in the finish. Flat but not thin. Overall: semisweet fruit, dry and refreshing.

Smell: slight sweet, sour, cherries, little dry

tom10101 (5902) - 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.

Hoprider (587) - DENMARK - MAY 4, 2015
Extremely dark purpleish red with a leasting, semi frothy and light pink head. The nose has sour desert cherries and strawberry yoghurt, really nice! The mouthfeel is light and creamy with little carb. Sharp cherry flavour at first but settles after a while and moves towards overripe, slightly sour cherry juice. Not very tart at all, not farmy or mineral either but super fruity and juicy.
