COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Piękne piwo. Niska piana - długo się utrzymuje. Wiśniowy kolor. W aromacie wiśnie i nuty końskie - genialny balans, do tego odrobina nut drewnianych. W smaku wytrawne, z początku bardzo kwaśne, po chwili robi się delikatnie kwaskowe, mocno wiśniowe. Wysoko wysycone, przyjemnie cierpkie. Jeszcze raz świetny balans w smaku. Miejscami przebija słodycz owocowa. Paradoksalnie delikatne. Naprawdę klasowe.

Dry, sensationally sour, with a strange medicinal taste. Tangy, sharp, and refreshing, no sweetness.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2017 Botella 37.5 cl en Cimmeria 04..02..2017 (r1036). Color amarillento tostado oscuro turbio con espuma algo rojiza. Sabores cidos y frescos algo secos con toques ligeros se frutos del bosque que la endulzan ligeramente. Bastante buena. Para repetir sin duda.

Very intensive aroma of cherries, hay, leather belt, tart apple. Highly, but not extremely, sour. Lots of cherries and also cherry seeds, giving nice tartness and wood-like astringency. Lovely

Red pour with a pink head. Cherrys are much more dominant than in Boons Kriek Mariage Parfait. Classically sour and woody.
