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.

DYCSoccer17 (3668) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
12.7 oz bottle from the Davis Beer Shoppe. Bottled on January 27, 2012. The aroma on this is delightful, with some sweet cherry notes, before a more funky, tart, barnyardy character comes through. A bit musty, but very nicely aromatic. Moderately hazy ruby-colored body with a small, bubbly pink head. Decent retention. Bottle opened with a very small pfft. Starts quite tart, and astringent. Some sour cherry fruitiness comes through in the middle. Finishes with some woody tannins, more acidity, and a touch of pimento olive. Quite dry, but well-balanced and drinkable. Really nice stuff.

Intensywnie wiśniowe, sporo słodyczy owocowej. Dość kwaśne, mniej funky, lekko skontrowane na finiszu goryczką.

90 (214) - BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2017
Productiejaar 2016: Alcoholpercentage is 6%. Uitgebalanceerd aroma met kriek en zure tonen. De smaak is lambiek met zure kersen. Een kleine zoete hint, maar de overheersende smaak is sappig zure kersen. Niet de overheersende cuberdonsmaak die vaak in kriek aanwezig is. Mooie zure afdronk.

Fresh cherry, jam, almonds dominate, light leathery, ripe melons funk underneath. Medium tart finish with malic and lactic acid, smooth.

adasko (2103) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 6, 2017
Piękna sprawa. Rewelacyjna, gładziutka kwaśność, dobita wiśnią, ktra to z kolei dawała też dla kontry troszkęsłodyczy. Piwo skrajnie pijalne, wybitnie przyjemne.

2015 vintage.Hazy burgundy red pour with a thin pink head. Cherries, sour cherries, dark cherries, cherry cores, just cherries all over, plus the mineral and funky lambic characteristic to 3F. A great lambic, delicious and very refreshing.

ippopotamo36 (2110) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 18, 2017
Vintage bottle (2 years) shared at Luppolo Station in Rome by Fabio, drunk with daniele, Mortlach and all the pub staff. Grazie ragazzi ;) Cherry skin pour very intense and bright, pinkish foamy head. Nose is vinous, red fruit, silk sour notes and quite a mint note. Just great. Mouth is vinous, elegant, soft and pungent with a herbal bitterness. Fantastic!
