UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 Bottle... DLD ’06... This beer rocks!... Murky, red ale with a small, fizzy, pink head. The aroma and flavor are funky, sour and fruity with notes of sharp cheddar and lemon. Light to medium-bodied and astringent with soft carbonation. Finishes tart and dry. I’m a sucker for all things fruity and sour. World class brew! thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2006
75 cl bottle. Mix of orange and deep red colour with a fine, pink head. Potent aroma of cherries and lemon and some wood. Flavours starts with cherries as you might expect,and then develops lemony and vanilla notes before an almondy, dry finish. Complex, yet soft kriek that meets the world-class standard you expect from 3 Fonteinen. tjthresh (1873) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Full, rich, and well rounded aroma of cherry, oak, and the typical lambic funk. Red and purple, Robitussin looking, no head. Very well balanced. Not overly tart, lactic, sweet, or drying. Very easy to enjoy. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2006
Bottle: Deep red, cloudy, sediment settling to the bottom, moderate foamy pink head, fairly sticky lacing. Tart nose, oaken, subtle cherry aspects. Smells divine! Tart on the tongue, bordering on sour, lingers long through to the finish, with an underlying bed of sour cherries, soft, yet unmistakable. Very clean. Moderate to full body, mouthfeel is fairly average. Dry finish, quite dry in fact, very oaken, immature cherry, and I cannot stress how clean this one is. I wished that it be a notch fuller with a bit more cherry aspect, but otherwise quite enjoyable. Thanks Steve for the bottle! footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2006
bottle in a trade with Jeppe and Mads.Thanks gents. I opened it and it proceeded to paint the kitchen ceiling,walls,floor and windows before I could cover it.But boy did it smell nice,best air freshner I ever had. Wonderful aroma of sour cherry, no more no less. Another great example of a style I never thought I would ever enjoy but again I am proven I have been wrong.A great brew.

Poured a hazy cherry red color with a small pink head. The aroma was tart and funky. Cherry and woody. Notes of horse and leather as it warms. The flavor was tart and sweet with cherrys. Finally this is what i was looking for during the night of sours. Yummy. skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2006
Pours red like straight cherry juice. The aroma is slightly sour and woody. Flavor is very pure, with nothing outside of the cherry and yeast. Finish is balanced between sweet and dry and taste lingers. Nothing overly complex or earth-shattering, but tasty all the way. atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2006
Pours purple with pink head, unique look. The aroma is wonderfully complex. Cherries are noticable and both sour and tart. Strong funky character in aroma as well. It just gets better as it goes on. The flavor is wonderfully sour and cherry tartness erupts. There is a sharp amonia that plays well with all of the sour flavors. Earthyness is also a great character addition. Very plesant. I do like the sour beers. hotstuff (5160) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Bottle. Bottling date 01 March 2005. Very small head that fully dissipated, no lacing, hazy, and a cranberry hue. Sweet, sour cherry nose. Flavor was sweet, sour, tart, tangy and cherries. Light body. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2006
(Bottle, 01/March/2005 vintage) Pours a deep ruby body with a small pinkish head. The aroma exhibits cherries and oragnic earthiness. Flavor of cherries, oak, citrus, and apple with a moderately acidic, astringent, somewhat dry finish.
