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.

Bottle. Pours a clear ruby red with no head. Musty, funky cherries dominate the aroma. Very tart and dry. Nice sour, acidic finish. Good.

ChainGangGuy (4874) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottling Date: 02 December 2005 Appearance: Pours a purple-red body with a thinnish, bubbly, pinkish head. Smell: A musty, funk-scented blend of cherry and strawberry preserves that’s plenty moldy and plenty acidic with a note of cheese that is well past its prime. Taste: Tart, sweetish cherries with a spoonful of strawberry jelly are greeted by a pinch of salt and a jolt of acidity. Punchy sourness. Hints of soggy leather and topsoil alongside some tough phenolics. Finishes rather dry with a hint of decaying wood. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. An initial flourish of carbonation, then it mellow out into a moderate carbonation level. Drinkability: A fine fruit lambic, but, in all honesty, it makes me more than wistful for another dose of that Hommage.

Raspberry with a cotton-candy colored head. Very sour cherry skin, funk, and lemon zest aroma. Flavor is amazing...pungent, mouth watering, lip puckering goodness. Great mouthfeel...refreshing!!!

Skinnyviking (9243) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle. Head aach non-existant. Lovely dark ruby body. Mild and yet tart chrrries aroma. A bit flat metallic and in my opinion too sweet flavor with low carbonation and a long aftertaste.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2008
2005 bottle, thanks to gueuze_is_god. Deep cloudy ruby red with purplish tint. Almost no carbonation. Very tart and musty cherry aroma with hints of lemon and wood. Sweetarts. Funky and pleasant. Nice mouthfeel-- full and tingly. Not the most complex I’ve had, but very tasty. One of the better kriek’s I’ve had, I suppose.

Beerdedone (3350) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours ruby red with a small pink head. Aroma of sour and tart cherries with a hint of wood. Very sharp flavor of sour and ripe cherries with oak and some funk. Lightly carbonated with a nice mouthfeel and has a very tart and dry finish. A very good lambic.
