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.

Duft af hindbær og meget syrlig. Den er flot rød med et rødt skum. Smagen er også af hindbær.

Awesome funkiness that’s not too intense for a newbie. Lovely tart fruitiness and an amazing intensity of cherries. Very tasty

Drank 13-07-17 with Koen & Cat (thanks for sharing!). Nice one! You can actually distill the fruits from this and the sour is really there but not too sharp. Really nice how the beer can have such rich taste with such low ABV.

Aroma: sour cherry, nice, clear kriek lambic flavor. Taste: same as in aroma and unfortunatelly too much woody tartness in aftertaste. IMO it is tartness from cherry pits, it is a little too intense. The beer has almost no head. Corol is maroon.

MartyW (278) - DENMARK - JUN 11, 2017
Vintage 2015 drunk in summer 2016. Oude kriek 750ml. Hazy dark purple with a good pink head. Aroma of dusty cherries, leather. Flavour is rich with authentic cherries, fresh taste, tart cherries. Light to moderate sour. Missing some complexity vs the Cantillon Kriek.

rayaron (1836) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAY 23, 2017
Bottle at Brussels. Deep red with no head. The aroma has notes of raspberry liqueur, almonds and wood. Sourish flavor with notes of raspberry, lemon, almonds, marzipan and wood. Slightly dry, soft carbonation, light to medium-bodied.

Mooi donkerrood bier met fluwele babyroze schuimkraag die snel inzakt. Mooi diep fruitig aroma, lichte aciditeit. Mooie fruit-zurig in de mond, redelijk volle body, lange friszure, droge,afdronk. Kersen, krieken, funky. Zeer lekkere verfrissende kriek. Topspul.

zvsn (2092) - ISRAEL - MAY 16, 2017
Bottle. Hazy pink red. Aroma of cherries with notes of candy and wood. Sour with mild sweetness, cherries, wood, lemon, light wine notes. Medium-bodied, fizzy. Great.

Arcanor (421) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2017
375ml bottled 2012-01-27, kept in a perfectly light and temperature controlled environment.

Pour lightly hazy rugby red with minimal foam.
Aroma is of cherries, medicinal tartness and barn notes.
Taste is of sweet and sour small fruit. Medium body and carbonation for the age.
Long nice sour and fruity finish.

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

sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 13, 2017
Bottle at Monterey, Berlin. Pours a clear dark red with a diminishing white head. Sour with a light dry- and sweetness. Aromas of sour pale malts, cherries with pits and cask wood. Medium bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Long dry and sour finish with more cherries.
