Delievred worldwide, 3 Fonteinen Oude Kriek is the result of a maturing process of cherries and young Lambic. This process takes 6 to 8 months. After the beer has been bottled, it matures for four months in a warm place where the beer ferments by itself.
No aromas, sweeteners or colorants have been added.
Pours a cloudy, ruddy red-orange with a touch of pink. Fluffy, light pink-tan head, good size with excellent retention. Lacing is sort of lumpy but pretty good still. Aroma is wonderfully strong and tart, layers of cherry with mostly an acidic, somewhat bretty, funky and bilious bite. Pretty kick-ass. Flavor has some sharp brett and bile. Imagine gastric reflux with cherry added.
Body is medium-full with a slightly chunky feel, unfiltered. Outstanding long finish, amazingly dry and delicious. This beer is so dry and wonderful.
