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.

gbzia (195) - Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2002
More like a geueze than a Kriek, but the cherry flavor is present both in the initial and after taste. Not for the first timer to lambics, acidic, powerful and great.

lkowalkowski (258) - POLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Barwa rubinowa, piana szybko redukuje się do obrączki. W aromacie głwnie wiśnie. W smaku delikatnie kwaśne. Alkoholu nie czuć.

Very intensive aroma of cherries, hay, leather belt, tart apple. Highly, but not extremely, sour. Lots of cherries and also cherry seeds, giving nice tartness and wood-like astringency. Lovely

czlowiekmotyka (137) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 23, 2017
Red pour with a pink head. Cherrys are much more dominant than in Boons Kriek Mariage Parfait. Classically sour and woody.

pjotrapostou (101) - POLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Intensywnie wiśniowe, sporo słodyczy owocowej. Dość kwaśne, mniej funky, lekko skontrowane na finiszu goryczką.

90 (296) - 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.

tmzl (304) - SLOVENIA - FEB 10, 2017
Fresh cherry, jam, almonds dominate, light leathery, ripe melons funk underneath. Medium tart finish with malic and lactic acid, smooth.

adasko (2154) - 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.

Kapsel (193) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 30, 2017
W aromacie wiśnie, pestki wiśni, akcenty skry, bretty. W smaku kwaśne, wiśniowe, pestka wiśni, cierpkie posmaki. Piwo mega pijalne, szybko znika i pije się z wielka przyjemnością.

mariuspoenari (2081) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2017
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.
