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.

Uzupełnienie profilu notatki.
Piana różowa, jak po koli opada. Kolor mętna czerwień. Aromat kwaśne wiśnie pestkowy, taniny, intensywny. Smak nie zaskakuje, oddaje to co w aromacie, kompot wiśniowy bez cukru, pestkowy (kwas pruski), drewno taniny, leciutka kwaskowatość. Piwo mało skomplikowane bardzo dobre ale brakuje mu trochę złożoności, a może dzisiaj nie był mój dzień na kwacha :)

2015 vintage. Dark red wine color with a tiny layer of pink head. Funky sweaty gueuze aroma, faint fruity cherries. Sour lambic funk with tasty cherries. It's not very descriptive, but thats it. Funk sticks around and after, the palate is quite fruity, like a sweeet red wine.
Awesome kriek. Sour, sweet, light, refreshing. Carbonation is not very high but with the tartness it lends the whole drink to have a spritzy character to it. Definitely one for summer, bit it's still really nice in Winter.

November 26, 2017 - bottle from my trip to Amsterdam, shared with my wife on her b-day. Cherry red pour with pinkish fluffy head after a gentle swirl. Aroma was tart cherry and a barnyard funk. Taste was consistent with the aroma, but did have some vinegar of which I am not a fan.

Shared 75 cl bottle at local tasting. Bottle from Gulating, Stavanger. Pours clear deep red with a small head. Aroma of cherries, meaty, with almonds. Taste is moderate fruity, weak funky cherries, very good and moreish.

Bottle at Cardinal. Pours dark reddish with a tiny layer of bubbles. Inviting aroma of meaty, fresh sour cherries, this would be like it smells in heaven on a spring day, or maybe not. Taste is also full of those red high hanging cherries, fresh sourness, a wonderful elixir this one.

0,75 l flaske på RBHD-samling, Lura, okt.2017. ABV 4,5 %. Klar dyp burgunder farget kropp med rosa ring langs kanten. Innbydende kirsebærgele i aromaen. Frisk syrlig smak med nydelig kirsebærpreg i ettersmaken. Nydelig.
Earlier Rating: 11/29/2009 Total Score: 4.1
Incredibly rich roma of cherries, blackcurrant, plums, cloud berries and goose berries. Taste like fruit and berry juice without added sugar. Impressive craft brewing. Recommended!
(Sampled from a bottle that had been open 4-5 days @ Bulldog in Ginza, Tokyo, February 2009.)

Share bottle at RB/HD at Gunnar´s 29.10.17. Special 4,5 % ABV edition. Cloudy crimson. Small pink head. Fine aroma and taste of sour cherries cherries and a hint of brett. Good, and with good drinkability. Aroma of marzipan and almonds in aroma, but not that much in taste. Dry mouthfeel and medium high carbonation. High quaffability!

0,75 flaske med champagnekork, delt på RBHD-samling hos Odd Gunnar, okt-17: champagnesmall, lett uklar rødlig med fint skum. Delikat kirsebæraroma og smak, og stor munnfylde for så lavt vitamininnhold. Hint av mandel og marsipan fra kjernene. 1 kg kirsebær pr liter. Special 4.5-edition, flasket 3.11.16 og holdbar til 26.10.36!
Earlier Rating: 4/21/2015 Total Score: 4
Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, Cardinal april-15: etter mange strålende gode fatøl fikk vi servert en ganerenser med mørkerød farge og kort skum. Vidunderlig intens aroma og smak av kjøttfulle, sure kirsebær. Elegant syrlighet med sprudlende frisk ettersmak. Med sitt innhold av 35% kirsebær (iflg. etiketten) kan den fort inngå som en av de anbefalte fem om dagen. Eminent drikkbar, som champagne for ølhunder, og en bauta å navigere etter.
