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.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2006 A Mes rate: From a tiny little plastic barrel at the De Heeren Van Liedekerke 15 year celebration Garden Party and poured by Armand himself. How cool is that? A very rare and very special treat. All of the flavour and character of the usual 3FK but just a little mellower and not quite so tart. Probably due to the lack of carbonation I don’t know. Initial note of sweetness is immediately overtaken by the wonderful sour cherries which just go on and on right through to the finish. Totally flat but the palate is incredible. Lipsmackingly good. An honour.

Hand pump/draft @ 3 Fonteinen. what to say, easily the best kriek I have ever had. pours dark red going on bordeaux, thin reddish head. aroma filled with cherries, very fresh had a nice farm/field like aroma with light tartness. taste, lots and lots of cherries, lactic - acidic mouthfeel with notes of wood. Overall palate kept enough sweetness not to make this a tart bomb. Amazingly natural, no feel of any additional fake extracts and sweeteners that seem to plague so many fruit beers.

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!
