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.

czlowiekmotyka (110) - 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 (84) - POLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Intensywnie wiśniowe, sporo słodyczy owocowej. Dość kwaśne, mniej funky, lekko skontrowane na finiszu goryczką.

90 (232) - 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.

Fresh cherry, jam, almonds dominate, light leathery, ripe melons funk underneath. Medium tart finish with malic and lactic acid, smooth.

adasko (2121) - 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 (180) - 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 (2004) - 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.

ippopotamo36 (2154) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 18, 2017
Vintage bottle (2 years) shared at Luppolo Station in Rome by Fabio, drunk with daniele, Mortlach and all the pub staff. Grazie ragazzi ;) Cherry skin pour very intense and bright, pinkish foamy head. Nose is vinous, red fruit, silk sour notes and quite a mint note. Just great. Mouth is vinous, elegant, soft and pungent with a herbal bitterness. Fantastic!

Frudel (126) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2017
Backlog : 375ml Bottle at Mikkeller and Friend Reykjavik in late October 2016. Hazy bright red color, with foam that disappears quickly. Aromas are cherries, tartness, barnyard. Taste is pretty good, a nice fruity sourness, funk, well balanced, sweetness is light to medium. Nicely done!
