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.

DYCSoccer17 (3686) - 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.

wojanex (151) - warszawa, POLAND - APR 15, 2017
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.
