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.

Hand pump at 3 Fonteinen (restaurant) along with a dish of rabbit in geuze!!
A true beauty - unclear deep red with a frothy pink head. Very nice and full sweet cherry and creamy aroma. Dry woody cherry flavor with a sour grapefruit note. More sourness than other kriekenlambics I have had. Sharp, dry, penetrating, outstanding!

Versione addolcita e riservata alla spina della kriek di 3fonteinen, buona comunque, ma non capisco proprio la necessità di addolcire un prodotto di per sé già piuttosto accessibile.

On tap at Jan’s Masters Division Celebration, 2nd August 2010. Bright red. The perfect balance of sourness and fruitiness. The ideal expression of the style.

jackl (8022) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2013
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.
