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.

Sampled on the RBSG bus (I think this is the one we drank. Pours a murkey dark amber read with a pale pink head. Wonderful tart funky and cherry aroma. Flavor of malt, cherries, and rhubarb pie. Finish has the perfect amount of tartness and acidity. Excellent.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2009 Bottle 2005: Very nice color of deep ruby red with a fading pinkish head. Fantastic aroma! Leather, extreme funk, acetic notes, oak, farmhouse old cheese and even more wild fermentation craziness. Crisp sharp acidic feel. Very sharp flavor. Has some oak, acetic/vinegar, sour cherries, lemon juice, and a strong acidity overall. Very cleansing. A hardcore Fruit-Lambic with nice character.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Nice ruby red color, but no head at all. The smell is loaded with tart cherries and oak, it is also acidic and the horse blanket is lower than in others, but I prefer it this way. Taste is acidic right off the bat, tart cherries and oak are blended nicely with some horse blanket coming through in the finish. This one had very low carbonation and the mouthfeel was medium bodied, with the finish being somewhat dry. This one was pretty good, and I’d say taste is higher than 4, but I can’t give a 4.5. I also can’t say I’ll be getting this again as it’s just not worth the extremely high price I have to pay to get it.

StefanSD (2407) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2008
375 ml bottle from SBD. Pours a dark purple color with a small pink head that soon recedes to nothing. The aroma is overtly sour with grapes, cherries and a bit of funk. The flavor is likewise very sour and tart with cherries, grapes and a hint of granny smith apple. The mouthfeel is light but satisfying with soft carbonation. The finish is short, dry and sour. I paired this with Comte cheese and they went together superbly. Overall: This is a very fine sour beer. Recommended.

DarkMagus (506) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 30, 2008
A subdued pop from the cork on this one, and very little carbonation... a bit of fizzing during the pouring but no head left behind. Very sweet-and-sour, funky, fresh cherry aroma with a hint of the bretty, musty sourness to come... Flavors were ultra sour, very little sweetness, a nice dose of the fresh cherry flavor, and a tiny bit of bitterness. Lots of lingering funkiness, very mouth-watering stuff... the only thing stopping me from chugging it is the fact that it is RIDICULOUSLY SOUR. But still, perfect on a hot day, super refreshing, excellent stuff. Very tart, bone-dry finish. Cant wait to have MORE...

Darker red coloured, some little carbonation, no head. Smouth sweet sour cherry fruity aroma. Medium to full fruity sweet sour aroma. Finish is light sour, fruity cherry wih some peppery touches. Nice.
