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.

traPISSED (106) - So Paulo, - OCT 25, 2011
75cl bottle at home, 1996 vintage. This bottle was corked, capped and very dusty. The cork was very long...so long that I lost the end of it into the beer. The pour produced a crystal clear bright ruby beer with still a huge amount of colour remaining (almost as much as a new bottle). The smell was fantastic! No oxidisation at all and I mean none!! It smelled of cinnemon, nutmeg, clove and cherry. Almost like a christmas spiced beer. Everyone that tried it said that they had never experienced a Kriek with such a christmas flavour. As we went down the bottle the sourness was more pronounced and the pours where becoming very murky. There was a huge amount of sediment in this bottle. This may well be the most gracefully aged beer Ive ever had. Everyone agreed that it could easily last another 10 years.

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.

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.

PhilosophyGuy (581) - Łdź, POLAND - APR 2, 2017
Piękne piwo. Niska piana - długo się utrzymuje. Wiśniowy kolor. W aromacie wiśnie i nuty końskie - genialny balans, do tego odrobina nut drewnianych. W smaku wytrawne, z początku bardzo kwaśne, po chwili robi się delikatnie kwaskowe, mocno wiśniowe. Wysoko wysycone, przyjemnie cierpkie. Jeszcze raz świetny balans w smaku. Miejscami przebija słodycz owocowa. Paradoksalnie delikatne. Naprawdę klasowe.
