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.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2010 Bottle. Look: Deep red, pinkish, hazy short lasting head. Smell: Earthy, wine sourness. Taste: Very tart. Not as sour as lambics can be. The cherry is not as sweet as it can be, rather earthy.

Bottle from 09 Belgian Beer Fest. Hazy cherry red pour. Flavors of sweet juicy cherries, tart green apple, biscuits, barnyard funk, and sour. Very good.

22oz bottle. Pours dark red with no head at all and almost no carbonation. Bottled 2006. Big funky nose with alot of sour cherry, some horeseblank and a little acidity. A very mild lambic. This was a big hit with everyone. The only downside is that it had no carbonation which would have made this even more drinkable. Very similar to the Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek. Big cherry skin taste with strong tartness but low acidity. Not crazy sour but very refreshing. Very very good.

Pours red with a pink bubbly head. Aroma of cherries. Sour cherry flavor with a rather dry finish. Not my thing.

Purchased at Bruisin Ales. Pours a still deep ruby red with scatter red bubbles on top. No head or carbonation at all. The nose shows rich cherries, cherry skins, hints at the acidity, yeasty. The flavor is very sour and tart with a nice acidity, cherry flavor comes through. Mouthfeel would have benefited from some carbonation, mildly watery.

Bottle purchased at O’briens. Aromas of strong sour cherries and sour apple. Awesome lambic. Not very sweet which I liked. Very sour. Nicely done!

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2009
375 ml corked [email protected] Arsenaal, Antwerp. A fingerthick pinkish head upon a deep purple colored body. Aroma of sour-acidic cherries with some citrus and a light wooden note. Cherry-flavored; starts tart and sour, then a certain fruity sweetness developes. Also hints of cheese, wood and almonds. Quite thick mouthfeel. Ending up with a tart, lingering sourness from the cherries. Easy drinking considering the style, and utterly refreshing.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle at Novare Res. Pours a dark cherry reddish color. Head just while pouring and directly after. Aroma is a wonderful blend of funky sour cherries. The flavor is really nice, sour bite of cherrys with an incredible dry finish. Slight acidity in the finish. I liked this Kriek a lot...well made.

angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Thanks BMan1113vr for this one. Pours a dark red/purple with a pleasantly cloudy appearance. Smells of sour cherries and dark wine, with a hint of barn. Tastes nicely tart up front, followed by the sweetness of dark cherries.
