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.

tabernae (178) - Latina, - NOV 18, 2012
Di colore rossastra, con schiuma praticamente assente, questa "birra" ha la capacit di bilanciare perfettamente le note acidule del lambic con la dolcezza mai invadente delle amarene e i sentori di rovere. in bocca il delicato aroma di amarene diventa pi complesso e scontroso man mano che la birra si scalda nel bicchiere. Bella, leggera, delicata ed elegante come le donne di Beersel.

wiśniowy klasyk w wersji podstawowej. lambiki to najlepsze co Belgia wymyśliła w świecie piw. szacunek, ale bez namiętności - jest kilka znacznie lepszych kriekw na świecie.

Maracuja05 (1105) - Mainz, GERMANY - APR 6, 2017
18-03-17 // 375ml bottle at Le Petit Belge, Wiesbaden. Lovely deep red lambic. Intense cherry sour nose. Taste is brilliant, this a well made kriek. Loads of cherry funk fruitiness, well balanced with a lacto sour note. Great!

PhilosophyGuy (543) - Łdź, POLAND - APR 2, 2017
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.
