Oude Kriek 3 Fonteinen is produced by ripening of cherries (both the flesh and the seeds) in young Lambic. This process takes between 6 to 8 months. After bottling the beer matures for at least 4 months in a warm room where the spontaneous fermentation in the bottle is done.
The head of Oude Kriek is very sensitive to the concentration of the cherry seeds containing oil and may differ from one year to the other.
On old Cherry 3 Fonteinen, no flavorings, sweeteners, or dyes added which makes this beer very natural and is especially thirst quenching.

Bottle at Cardinal. Pours dark reddish with a tiny layer of bubbles. Inviting aroma of meaty, fresh sour cherries, this would be like it smells in heaven on a spring day, or maybe not. Taste is also full of those red high hanging cherries, fresh sourness, a wonderful elixir this one.

abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2017
0,75 l flaske på RBHD-samling, Lura, okt.2017. ABV 4,5 %. Klar dyp burgunder farget kropp med rosa ring langs kanten. Innbydende kirsebærgele i aromaen. Frisk syrlig smak med nydelig kirsebærpreg i ettersmaken. Nydelig.

Incredibly rich roma of cherries, blackcurrant, plums, cloud berries and goose berries. Taste like fruit and berry juice without added sugar. Impressive craft brewing. Recommended! (Sampled from a bottle that had been open 4-5 days @ Bulldog in Ginza, Tokyo, February 2009.)

Holmen2 (4034) - NORWAY - OCT 29, 2017

Holmen1 (6471) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2017
0,75 flaske med champagnekork, delt på RBHD-samling hos Odd Gunnar, okt-17: champagnesmall, lett uklar rødlig med fint skum. Delikat kirsebæraroma og smak, og stor munnfylde for så lavt vitamininnhold. Hint av mandel og marsipan fra kjernene. 1 kg kirsebær pr liter. Special 4.5-edition, flasket 3.11.16 og holdbar til 26.10.36!

Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, Cardinal april-15: etter mange strålende gode fatøl fikk vi servert en ganerenser med mørkerød farge og kort skum. Vidunderlig intens aroma og smak av kjøttfulle, sure kirsebær. Elegant syrlighet med sprudlende frisk ettersmak. Med sitt innhold av 35% kirsebær (iflg. etiketten) kan den fort inngå som en av de anbefalte fem om dagen. Eminent drikkbar, som champagne for ølhunder, og en bauta å navigere etter.

Sigmund (7916) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2017
Shared 750 ml bottle, from Gulating Ølutsalg, Stavanger. This is the 4.5% edition which is allowed sold in Norwegian ordinary stores, while the 5% version is sold only in Vinmonopolet stores. Lovely aroma and flavour of brettanomyces and sour cherries. Notes of cherry kernels.

375 ml corked & caged green bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5%. Red colour, moderate pink head. Lovely aroma of sour cherries and brettanomyces / farmhouse kitchen. Sour and tart flavour, medium dry, sour cherries galore, also lemony notes.

fantti (1033) - FINLAND - OCT 21, 2017
Pullo @ The Bottle Shop Brugge. Kaatuu lasiin syvän punaisena ja kirkkaana, noin sormen paksuisella pinkillä vaahdolla. Tuoksu on happaman kirsikkainen, mutta siinä on tumman marjainen, tynnyrimäinen ulottuvuus. Lisänä on nahkaa, kuten kuuluukin. Maku jatkaa happaman kirsikkaista linjaa, lievällä nahkaisuudella yhdistettynä, mutta mukana on jotain leipäisyyttä tai viljaisuutta, joka on uusi ilmiö tyyliin. Suutuntuma on hapan, muttei napakka vaan pehmeämpään päin mennyt, liekö aika tehnyt jo vähän tehtäväänsä (pullotettu 14.7.2015). Hyvä kriek, mutta huomaa kyllä, että hieman vanhempaa tavaraa jo kyseessä. Selvästi pehmeämpään ja vähemmän happamampaan suuntaan on mennyt..tai näin ainakin olettaisin.
