look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Drank from a 1 pt 9.4 fl oz corked and caged bottle purchased at Julio's Liquors, Westboro, MA
Bottling date 2010, April 28
Served in a wine glass

The beer poured a gorgeous, crystal clear raspberry color. A small, short-lived cap of light pink bubbles topped the liquid. The body bore a striking resemblance to a rose wine.

The nose was equal parts funk/must and sour cherry notes. Lots of barnyard character. Wet hay and damp earth were both apparent. Musty with a strong cellar-like quality. Quite complex and intense.

The taste was a bit more sharp and straightforward than the nose. Tart lemon notes were most noticeable. Quite citric and acidic. Musty, damp and funky. Some vinegar came through on the back end. The bone-dry, oaky finish was super crisp and tart. Slightly tannic. The big letdown however was that there was no discernible cherry flavor.

The beer was medium bodied for the style with a fine yet spritzy effervescence. Snappy and crisp. The liquid turned smooth and creamy once it settled on my palate.

Drie Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek was far more tart and funky than I was anticipating it to be. I really wish my bottle was a bit fresher so that I could have perhaps tasted some of those iconic Schaerbeekse cherries. This was enjoyable but definitely not worth the steep ($38) price tag.

750 ml bottle, bottled April 26, 2011, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a deep red cherry color, with a thin layer of fluffy pink head.

S- Huge sour cherry aroma, tartness is mild, some musty yeast and oak.

T- Powerful tartness up front, layered underneath it is a lot of sour cherry pie flavors and some funky yeast with a bit of oak.

M- Medium-bodied, well-carbonated, has a crisp feel with some puckering from the sourness.

O- An excellent kriek, every bit as good as Cantillon kriek, the flavors are simple but done extremely well. It's a pricey beer but is definitely worth trying.

159th Review
Bottle to Fantôme snifter

From notes. I've enjoyed this a couple of times, but this review comes courtesy of Knownfactor bringing this to a tasting...thanks Matt!

A: Hazy, dull strawberry. A few bubbles for the head on medium pour.

S: Mostly tart cherrie with hints of oak, yeast, and must. Touch of sweetness as well. Nice!

T: Brisk sour/tartness up-front with mellow oak and light funk towards the back-end. Not overly complex, but just right.

M: Medium bodied with almost no carbonation.

O: A very refreshing and crisp beer. The tart/sourness is wonderfully balanced with the sweetness, which makes this quite enjoyable.

2010 vintage and bottled in April, courtesy of thagr81us. Thanks for picking this up for me Calton.

This beer pours a red raspberry bright red in color with a slight white lacing around my snifter. The nose is incredibly sour, acidic, funky, earthy, and has some yeast to it. It's probably the most sour nose of an beer not named Cantillon. This one is pretty sour. It's so sour that you can't get much cherry, or perhaps I should say any traditional cherry or a cherry pie/cobbler. It's almost pure acid. It's also a little vinous. I like it, it just isn't overly complex. It can't be. It drinks lighter in body with moderate carbonation. This is a really nice Kriek and I've had it before. 2005s are insane right now but I feel this is in its awkward teenage stage, at just under two years old.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Duvel glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically. This was bottled 26 Apr, 2011.

Appearance: As poured the beer is a dark, almost purple, red with a 1/8” irregular head surrounded by a ring around the inside of the glass. The head soon recedes leaving the ring and a few isolated patches of foam on the surface. Sipping leaves behind lots of leggy lacing, most of which clings to the sides of the glass.

Smell: When the bottle is opened the aroma of tart cherries is detectable almost immediately. The oak remains well behaved in the background and contributes a touch of wood and vanilla. The characteristic funk associated with the Brett has not yet emerged or taken over this beer.

Taste: The flavors are predicted well by the nose, with lots of tart cherry flavor (and a nice mouth pucker to go with it). Some woody oak and vanilla come in about midway through and there is a touch of sweetness to round things out before the finish.

Mouthfeel: The mouth feel is on the light side of medium bodied and the light, persistent carbonation leaves a gentle clean, crisp prickly feel. The finish is long and ends reasonably dry along with a persistent tart “pucker” in the back of the mouth.

Drinkability and Overall Impression: This is a very nice beer to sip and enjoy. At the price of this bottle I’ll probably not be sampling this one very often, but I certainly intend to have it again. Everything here is clean and crisp and I can easily see why many prefer their fruit lambics on the young side before the Brett and funkiness take over. I also think that the variety of cherries used does differentiate this from Kriek’s made with other tart cherries. On the label it describes these cherries as being prized by the makers of Kriek. I understand that now and it isn’t hyperbole.

From 01/15/12 notes. Big, big thanks to ahalloin for sharing this one; thanks Tony. A beer I've never had purely due to the price tag. 750ml bottle into a tulip. Bottled on 04/26/11.

a - Pours a deep purple-red color with one inch of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks like a great kriek.

s - Smells of sour cherries, brett, funky, earthy notes, spices, yeast, and oak. Very nice, close to a 4.5.

t - Tastes of tart cherries, sour dark fruits, spices, brett, oak, earthy, musty, funky notes, and some Belgian yeast. Tarter than the nose and a big step up to me.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Crisp, very nice for a kriek.

o - Overall this is another great kriek from Drie Fonteinen. Is it better than their normal kriek? Probably by a little bit, but when you consider how much more expensive this one is, I don't know if it is worthh the price, certainly not often. The difference between this and their normal kriek is not as wide a gap as it is between their Oude Gueuze and Oude Gueuze Vitnage, so personally I'd rather buy 2-3 bottles of the normal Kriek for the same amount of money. Definitely a good beer though.

Pours out dark maroon in color with a tiny pink head that dissipated almost right away.

Smell is definately a little brett, sour cheries, smells REALLy nice. Taste is REALLY nice tart cherries. Really one that takes the enamal off you teeth.

Mouthfeel is thin with a timy bit of carbonation but it seems thicker because its so sour. Really a great beer. I wish I could find this on the shelf all the time.

Nearly no head. Very light spotty lace. The color of the broth is bright cherry red with mildest of chill hazes. After a few minutes, there is no head and no lace.

Sour cherry aroma.

Extremely, lip-puckeringly sour. Extreme through the finish. Short aftertaste. Surprisingly little cherry flavor and absolutely no sweetness. Not your typical Kriek. Full bodied for the style with a low carbonation level.

A: The beer is very hazy red and pink in color, very similar to the shade of red on the label. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down and left delicate hints of lacing on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong funky and sour aromas of cherries in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is sour and has flavors of cherries along with notes of oak from the barrel aging.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a low amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a good balance of sourness and cherry flavors.

2008 vintage poured from a 750ml bottle into my Lost Abbey stemware. It poured a darker red color, much like an actual cherry. A thin, pink, bubbly head was there for the pour and then all but disappeared soon after.

The aroma is like a sour cherry pie. I get a pretty strong sour, tartness mixing with the fruity cherry flavors. A little bit of a funky, musty flavor is there and I get a little bit of vanilla as well. Great aroma overall, I love the fresh cherry flavor it had.

The taste shows a lot of tart and sourness to it. The cherries come out more in the finish along with a strong dry tartness. A little more funky, musty flavor is there in the finish as well.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied for the style with carbonation being a little below average. Overall it was a great beer. I love cherries so I've been looking forward to trying this one for a while. The tart, sour cherries were really great in it. Pretty awesome beer to sip on this new Year's Eve.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Bottling date: 4/26/2011

A: Pours an absolutely stunning and vibrant cherry red color. Pretty much opaque red. A two finger pink head rises, and gently recedes to a ring that sticks throughout. Some light lace. An absolute looker.
S: Right up front is the cherries. Slightly tart, slightly sweet. An amazing vanilla and oak aroma. Everything is so clean here.
T: Quite a bit more mouth puckering sourness and acidic flavor than in the nose. Though still amazing. Tart cherries, with enough vanilla sweetness to counter that. Big oak and wood flavors. Certainly some funk. Though the acidic character covers it up. Not the funk bomb I thought it was going to be. More of an amazingly clean, crisp, and sour lambic. Love it.
M/D: A medium body and perfect carbonation. Crisp, effervescent and amazingly clean. So easy and enjoyable to drink. It will be a shame when the bottle is gone.

What amazes me about this is how clean and crisp all the nuances are. All without the huge funky, cheesyness of some other versions. Not that that is bad at all, just different. Here the acidic/sour fruits and barrel character being the hole show. World class, and one of my favorite lambics.

4/28/2010 vintage 750ml into an over sized wine glass. Allowed to warm up to room temperature.

A - Deep red body, very clear and juice like. I gave it an aggressive pour for the second glass and I got an off white/light pink head that fizzled away in seconds. Pouring the swirled dregs yields a cloudy dark pink/red liquid that looks like a raspberry smoothie.

S - Sweet cherries followed by some brett funk. The cherry is very potent but sweet with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Just very light and faint spices. The finish is oaky and sour.

T - Sour cherries followed by oak and brett funk. Very smooth and refreshing flavor. I can pick out some of that vanilla and cinnamon. Some lemony lactic action going as well. Tart and crisp carbonation.

O - A fantastic kriek. It has a lot of complex sweetness to balance out the sour and tart flavors. I enjoyed it much more than the standard oude kriek, but the price tag is really difficult to swallow. Still glad I grabbed a bottle though.

2008 750ml bottle.

Dark blood red, tiny bit of pink head. Aroma is heavy on the tart cherry with a ton of new pool toys. Flavors are mild sour cherry, lactic and a unique funky hay and moldy wood. Mild carbonation. Decent but not worth the price tag. I LOVE 3F gueuze. Their fruit beers are not on the same level though.

T - Tart and funky fruit, very slight cherry finish.

D - Lower carbonation, light body. Sour and tart throughout.

O - Soft and light, but super tart.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. Opened to celebrate the birth of my 3rd child, It's a Boy! Major thanks to Phelps for this in the Tickers BIF.

A: Beautiful reddish pink color, with a nice ruby glow when held to the light. About a half finger of white head with a touch of pink tint. Good retention and beautiful lacing.

S: Big funky, tart, sour cherries. Light traces of oak in the background. Nothing complex but smells awesome.

T: Sweet cherries upfront immediately taken over by tartness. Light funkiness and sourness comes through in the middle. Cherries consuming the finish and aftertaste. Super tasty.

M: Light body. Medium high carbonation. Puckering is pretty big until you adjust. Mouth continues to water for a while after each drink.

O: One of the top sours I've had. Just a tasty drinkable brew.

Thanks to ms11781 for this bottle of the 2008 vintage. Split four ways. Reviewed on 9/9/2011 and posted here from notes taken that night.

The color is a beautiful deep ruby red that almost glows when held up to the light. As is the case with many of Armand's lambics, there is no head, but there is plenty of lively carbonation to make up for it.

The aroma is light and bright, full of fresh cherries, a very clean lemony lactin sourness, and some mineraly goodness that I really enjoy from 3F offerings. On the palate, there are lots of sweet cherries, and they take center stage. The lactic lemony notes blend with a gnarly sweaty gym sock, wet hay, and dank funkiness.

Lively and bright, this is an awesome kriek, though I find that the other notes that I am enjoying are prying my focus from the delicious cherries. That, combined with the price tag, makes this not quite equal to Cantillon's Kriek lambic in my book.

Pours a light red with no head but visible carbonation. Aroma of oak, funk and cherries, just as any good kriek. Taste and mouthfeel is where this really shines. Taste rich of cherries, oak and funk back up the cherries nicely. Tart like no other I've had, mouth puckering in the best way possible. This is a real treat

Pours a dark red color with a light pink head. Scent is funky as shit with sweaty gym socks and sweet cherries. Tons of barnyard funk and tart cherry aroma. Not nearly as funky as the regular kriek from 3F though. Taste is immediately sour cherry and biting vinegar. Tons of sour and barrel flavors. Lovely barnyard funk. Awesome cherry flavors. Mouthfeel is sour and sticky on the teeth...medium bodied. Drinkability is high. Overall, this is an amazing kriek lambic. I wish I could do a side by side with the regular kriek from this awesome brewery. 3F never lets me down.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

Popped this cork to celebrate my recent promotion. Here's hoping it was worth the considerable investment. It pours a cloudy tawny-rose topped by a few fingers of pink-tinted white foam. The nose comprises tart cherry, light cobweb, vanilla, light caramel (very akin to caramel corn), dank oak, lactic acid, lemon zest, and a twist of ruby red grapefruit. The taste brings in more of the same, though the lactic acid and sour citrus notes seem to cloud the cherries out a bit. A touch of white wine vinegar is tossed into the mix as well, just to liven things up a bit. It's surprising that the tartness isn't more powerful, especially considering the effect it had on the back of my teeth. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a dry, rather sticky finish. Overall, a very nice lambic, though it's hard to really enjoy it for an extended period of time (without experiencing some negative side effect of the sourness). Though I feel the cherries were talked-up a bit too much, I'd gladly take another glass, but I doubt I'd shell out the $35+ for it very often in the future.

Bottle purchased by me at a long-forgotten location. Dated March 22, 2006. Served in a Struise cervoise.

A - A half-finger of white foam settles to some wisps and a thick collar, leaving behind a few stray splotches of lace. Hazy dark red with a touch of orange to it.

S - Aroma is stellar. Massive amounts of delicious Schaerbeekse cherries, some light vanilla, lactic acidity, mushroom and earthy funk, and a touch of acidity as the beer warms up. I'm shocked by how present the fruit is after five and a half years. This was comparable with Dirty Horse for best-smelling cherry beers I've encountered.

T - The taste isn't quite on the same transcendent plane as the aroma, but it's still quite excellent, marrying tart cherry with earthy funk, some dry oak, a bit of leathery brett, green apple skins, and some musty attic. It's got that great aged lambic character to it, but the intense fruitiness has mellowed out leaving mostly acidity and tartness behind.

M - Medium body, with a dry and tannic finish, and a sticky juice-like character. Carbonation was lower than I anticipated - this could have used a touch more spritz to it. I'm wondering if the synthetic cork contributed to the modest amount of bubbles.

D - If this weren't so expensive I'd buy it regularly. That being said it's similar in price to Lou Pepe Kriek, arguably superior, and is much easier to find (until people wise up and start hoarding, of course). I'm curious if I'll ever have the patience to let this sit on my shelf for five years again.

Best Damn Sour Fest
Bootlegger
San Diego, CA

Dark ruby and red with pink edges and a thin pink head. Leaves small spots and thin webs of lacing down the glass.

An incredible combination consisting of incredibly powerful, stinging sourness, plump and juicy cherries, and earthy oak. Everything is in balance yet powerful, all at once. Perfect.

The flavor too is just phenomenal. The cherries are vibrant and tart, the sourness is consistent and strong from sip to swallow. This is lip puckering stuff here! Phenomenal.

Medium bodied with high carbonation.

A truly special beer. One of my favorites.

Bottled on 4-28-2010.

Pours magnificently red with a small light pink head that fades quickly. Very little lacing. The beer looks almost artificially red. Very neat.

Tart cherries, oak, earthy funk in the aroma. Slightly cheesy funk. Sour with a touch of sweetness coming through. Thoroughly complex.

Sour, really sour. Having had many sour wild ales lately, I wasn't expecting this to hit me over the head, but it sure does. Tons of tart cherries combine with sour and funk. Still a hint of sweetness in the middle of it. Oak and more funk are apparent after getting accustomed to the sourness. Super dry but the sourness lingers for a while.

Relatively low carbonation, but that doesn't keep it from feeling lively. Decent body, fills the mouth quite well.

Awesome sour beer. So many other sour/wild ales really just can't compare to the folks at Drie Fonteinen.

750ml bottled in October of 2008 continously poured into two tulips, dregs dumped into a taster.

Ruby red, upon pouring some head is stirred up but it quickly dissipates into a ring of foam around the edges of the glass. Clear body with some bubbles dancing to the top. Nothing out of the ordinary here.

Funk and tart cherries upon your first whiff of the beer. Funk with all that barnyardy goodness and a little bit of a medicinal quality to it. Some gym sock and a faint bit of lactic funk in there too as it begins to warm. Agitation brings out more tart cherries with a subdued funk and more medicinal scents.

Pleasantly tart cherries greet your palate with a much softer funk than the nose. Actually, the taste here is much more abrasively sour and fruity than the smell. Hints of the funk upon swallow and some what muddled throughout but the taste here is all about the cherries.

Sticky sweet on the palate with low carbonation. More sticky than most other krieks.

Sharp tart cherries with a good funk. A pretty solid example of the style, and to be honest I am surprised how well the fruit has held up in this one. This was the last bottle on the shelf at one of my favorite shops in town so I had to grab it seeing as proper lambic is becoming a scarce commodity in this country.
