Beautiful cherry milkshake red, lots of lace. Picked up at Premiere Gourmet in Buffalo recently. Creamy mouthfeel, just milkshake, with strawberry, pretty well full mouthfeel. Body is a bit fluffed up. Very tasty. Late aftertaste of barrel lumber. Alcohol in nose detracts from cherry aroma and taste.

Bottled on 3/31/09.

Pours a semi-opaque crimson red with a small light red head that fades to a film on the top of the beer. All lacing drips back down into the beer on the drink down. Smells fantastic with sour cherries, red wine vinegar, and funk/must. A very mouthwatering sour smell. Taste is fantastic with the sour cherry taste up front and a vinegar and funky must flavor taking over on the finish. There is an acidic twang to this beer in the mouth after each sip. There is a medium to high level of carbonation that is very bubbly and prickly in the mouth. Overall, this is a very good sour cherry lambic that is still super tasty more than 2 years after the bottling date.

light pink color highlighted a light amber color. Light haziness and cloudiness surrounded it with a nice one inch head of pink on top.

Solid. Tart cherries are all over the aroma here.rich sour notes are all over this one with great touches o apples and raspberries mixing in and a light touch of wood that seems to come out of nowhere. seriously just wonderfully done i could not get enough. a nice long fade of dry, tart and sour flavors leaves you looking for more right away!

overall this was just what the doctor ordered and really nicely done.

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

A: The cork comes out without a pop, yet the pour displays some signs of carbonation as a reddish head forms and dissipates quickly. The beer itself is opaque and dark, blood red in color.

S: The nose offers up some mild tartness along with a nice tannic note of cherry skin and oak. The Brett is leathery and dry, offering a touch of earthy funk.

T: The cherries are a bit muted in terms of fruit flavor, but the skins are alive and well providing both flavor and tannins, as well as some acidity. The oak and Bretty provide additional dryness along with a bit of barnyard and must. The finish provides some extra tartness that was not present in the rest of the sip.

M: The beer is mildly carbonated and works very nicely with the beer itself. It is not slick on the tongue like many lambics are.

D: Not overly tart or acidic, but definitely enough. I really found this to be close in quality to the Schaerbeekse version, with that one having just a slight edge.

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

Appearance: Pours a cloudy cranberry juice color, with a fizzy lavender head that descends to a ringlet and archipelago, while leaving very little lace

Smell: Sweet and tart bing cherry aroma, with a musky, oaky aspect and a clear element of the horseblanket

Taste: Opens with a tart cherry flavor that is complemented by sweet, oaky and barnyard character; after the swallow, the barnyard becomes more intense and dominates the very tart finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Never a beer that I would characterize as highly drinkable, this is nonetheless a very nice middle of the road kriek

Bottle: Poured a red color beer with a huge pink foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma of sour cherries is dominant as well as oak. Taste is sour as hell with very little sweetness and great tartness. Very refreshing on a hot day and appreciate the fact that the acidic level is well balance which is not always the case with those Lambic producers.

Insanely good beer! Drie Foneinen has figured this whole Belgian thing out. This Kriek is no different. Holding true to what Krieks are, this beer has a delicate acidity that steers clear from sharpness or astringency. A clean tartness that comes from the cherries are a perfect compliment to the vineous blended lambic base beer. Tartness take the shape of pie cherries, under-rippened berries, crabapples, and malt. That's right, a steady stream of pilsner malts add just enough sweetness, body, and creaminess to buffer the palate from the intensity of the sour beer. A light cork mustiness gives an earthy complextion to the beer from the nose to the finish (despite the synthetic cork). A real surprise is the low-lying carbonation which keeps the acidity from becoming amplified. Still, the beer does not rest heavily on the tongue; rather giving a mellow soothing demeanor to the session. Krieks just don't get better.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours a nice, bright light red color with a slightly-pink head and a bit of lacing. The nose is bright cherries with modest funk and oak. Not too much acidity. The taste is, unfortunately, mostly cherries and not too much of the funk, oak, and acidity I normally really enjoy from Drie Fonteinen. Fairly nice cherry presence and a bit of tartness from them. In the end, this is just too cherry forward without much involved. Will have to get an aged bottle at some point.

A: The beer is slightly hazy and dark red in color. It poured with lacy patterns of bubbles on the surface and has a light amount of visible carbonation.
S: There are aromas of sour cherries in the nose with some hints of funkiness. The aromas of cherries become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The sourness in the taste is very well balanced with flavors of cherries and oak; there is also some sweetness from the fruit. The cherries stand out more prominently in the taste compared to the smell.
M: It feels light-bodied, crisp and rather tart on the palate with a light amount of carbonation. There is some dryness in the finish.
D: The beer is quite drinkable for the style because the sourness in the smell and taste don't overpower your senses and doesn't pucker your mouth.

Bottling Date: 02 December 2005

Appearance: Pours a purple-red body with a thinnish, bubbly, pinkish head.

Smell: A musty, funk-scented blend of cherry and strawberry preserves that's plenty moldy and plenty acidic with a note of cheese that is well past its prime.

Taste: Tart, sweetish cherries with a spoonful of strawberry jelly are greeted by a pinch of salt and a jolt of acidity. Punchy sourness. Hints of soggy leather and topsoil alongside some tough phenolics. Finishes rather dry with a hint of decaying wood.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. An initial flourish of carbonation, then it mellow out into a moderate carbonation level.

Drinkability: A fine fruit lambic, but, in all honesty, it makes me more than wistful for another dose of that Hommage.

blended lambic, brewed with sour cherries, aged in oak

Clouded, rosy , near purple look, no head at all.

Sour cherry nose, very mellow, refined, and restrained. Plump and pungent.

Sour, funkiness grips the palate, coats the mouth and slide down the throat.
smooth and fruity, tart and tasty.

Long, sour finish, but never too anything. Quite mellow. I'm getting the oak, now, too. Very nice. Yum.

Bottled: Feb 01 2005

Pours a crystal clear vermillion into a Drie Fonteinen glass. Two fingers of pink foam result. Becomes increasingly darker as the last dregs are carefully poured (excluding the sediment).

Very traditional, cherry inflected Lambic. Flinty aroma, mineral, fresh rain, and a serious funky, fruity funkaliciousness. Pretty much unsurpassed in the funk category.

Sour cherry, puckering mouthfeel. Salivary glands work overtime. Some vague sterile gauze, but tempered by the pure sourness. Spritzy and light in the mouth. Fairly dry, but the initial juicyness counteracts it.

I'm intrigued, and will have to try the Schaerbeekse Kriek for comparison.

The beer pours a beautiful red color with a thin pink head that fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has an intensely sour, lambic scent with loads of cherries. This is so sour that it makes my nose burn. The taste is damn good as well. It has an intensely sour flavor that goes down easy with some mild cherry notes. The sourness is out of control. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a low/medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a powerfully enjoyable beer. It has excellent fruit character with one hell of a sour punch.

THIS MOTHER FUCKER TRIED TO BREAK MY WRIST. Damn cork popped out and bent my already broken wrist in a stupid way. DAMN YOU FONTEINEN. I'll have my wife open the rest of my beers.

Beer served in a wine glass. Beer is pink / red with a thin pin head that leaves some lacing, big time carbonation.

Aroma is sour, acetic and mild lactic with some sweet cherries, what's the vintage of this beer?

Very cherry, super tart, face hurting sour. Lip puckering. Very sour, hits in the back of mouth. The cherry flavors are very very nice in this one. Its well balanced with the acetic sour, I really love this beer. Better than the other Fonteinen Kriek lambic in my opinion. I'm going to get some more of this and age them.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.

Bottled 3/31/09.

The beer pours a ruby red color with a light pink head. The aroma is strong cherry with some vanilla. I get a little funk, but less than in the Schaerbeekse Kriek. The flavor is vanilla, cherries and some tartness. The beer is very dry and doesn't have much funk to it at all, possibly because it is so newly bottled. Medium mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation. Probably not quite as good as the Schaerbeekse Kriek, but if you take into account the price difference, I think this one is the better value.

A - Poured out a dark, dark red color with almost no head. The bubbles that were present were white. No lacing to speak of.

S - It smelled of black cherry. Sour with a hint of maltiness.

T - Great sour black cherry flavor with some notes of oak and sweet malt.

M - High on the pucker-factor with a dry, clean finish. A light to medium bodied ale.

O - This is a great tasting cherry lambic, especially if you like them sour and not so sweet.

Bottle Date February 2005, Sampled July 2006
Pours with a frothy, pink tinged head that disappears fairly quickly to just a ring of wispy foam. The beer is a lightly hazy, striking red color. An immediate note of acidity hits my nose as I pour this beer, but it is backed by a complex woody, almost tannic note. Hints of urea join some initially phenolic, almost plastic like notes. A soft cherry character is here, reminiscent of cherry skins. Basically the aroma is devoid of any sweetness what so ever.

Ah, an aggressive sourness grips hold of my mouth as soon as I take my first sip. Completely devoid of any sweetness during my initial sips, this beer is quite dry. Again there are some healthy, woody tannic notes reminiscent of barrels. Joined by just a touch of cherry character, the combination of tannins and fruit make me think of cherry stones and puckering cherry skins that have been stripped of any sweetness. This is just an aggressively sour Lambic. It is not nearly as funky as some, in fact the funkiest that it gets is that plastic-like phenolic note that almost seems a bit like lacquer of some sort. The combination of the astringent wood notes and the sour acidity make for one mouth puckering experience, which I just can't get enough of.

12.7 oz. bottle, bottled 3/31/09, so almost a year and a half old,

A: Pours an opaque unfiltered magenta with a moderate light pink head, some nice lace, pretty colour.

S: Noticable Brett/horse blanket notes immediately on opening. Once in the glass, the smell is predominately lightly sour cherries, there is some sugar in there, little bit of a cherry pie thing.

T: Delicious fresh cherry taste immediately hits the palate, much fruitier initially than Cantillon, but this is nowhere near Lindemans or Boon for that matter. The cherry flavour is natural, juicy and very pleasing. Nice mix of sweet and sour with some decadent sweet cherry flavour coming in the very end. Moderate acidity, not super funky on the taste, the Brett really stays in the background so the cherry flavour dominates, with how good it is, I'm fine with that.

M: The acidity here is on the light medium side, very approachable even for a novice. Overall a medium-bodied brew, nice fruity aftertaste.

D: This is not the ultra dry complex super Kriek that Cantillon was, but it's still a damn good beer. It's in that Hanssens realm, while still being very traditional, the true fruit flavour shines through. Very tasty, a worth a pick up to try, but I don't know if I'll ever buy it again as it is freakishly expensive, I can buy a 750 of Hanssens for the same price.

expensive kriek at about 17 bucks for a small bottle, but the name commands the wage, and the quality doesnt disappoint, although i think there are comparable krieks out there for less money. fully pink in color, hazy with just a bit of yeast sediment and a long lasting bone white head frothy like laundry soap overflowing from the cycle. it smells tart as any ive seen, lambic fist and fruit second in the nose, which i just love, but in the flavor its all cherry. cherries have that odd property for me, in beer, of either being inccredibly authentic like cherries right from the tree, or of being brutally fake, artificial, syrupy, out of a can, not good. there seems to never be middle ground. its either fresh fruit or candy or medicine. this unfortunately to me seems fake, like canned pie cherries, especially in the finish. tart enough, but there is a ton of sweetness too, and the cherries seem a tad medicinal. i know they arent, but they seem that way. the feel is fuller bodied and the sugar is about 25% too much, while the carbonation is still great and the acidic creeps up in intensity as my glass warms up. i like the beer a lot, but i want to taste a bit more lambic like the nose teases here. for the price im sort of neutral, if it was ten bucks, id be ecstatic, and if it was any more epxensive id be pissed off.

Pours a very dark deep ruby red color with a thin fizzy pinkish head that quickly dissipates into a very thin lasting ring.

Tart funky aroma with a lot of barnyard funkiness, horseblanket and sweet sour cherries. Sweet smelling from the fruit countered by the earthy oak wood character.

Funky sour tart intensity up front that is puckering and mouthwatering but also very acidic. Again the sweetness of the cherries are organic and not artificial or syrupy. This sweetness is balanced by the very funky tart notes and the earthy wooden oak.

375ml corked and caged bottle poured into a matching Drie Fonteinen tumbler. Bottled only 7 months ago puts this at probably the youngest/freshest bottled Drie Fonteinen offering I have had. This brew pours a deep, dark red color that is quite hazed. An initial surge of a finger and a half of pink froth forms across the top and quickly recedes to a thin layering across the top. A constant stream of bubbles rises to the surface that seemingly gets increasingly agitated as the brew warms up and it slowly starts to bubble more violently until it forms a creamy pink pattern of froth along the edges and maintains a constant thin film of larger bubbles through the middle of the surface.

The smell of this brew is pleasantly funky with the expected drie fonteinen character. There is quite a solid cheesy odor emanating from the glass that is enjoyable. There is a bit of a lactic sourness included which draws up a salivation factor before I have even taken a sip. While the initial whiffs of this brew make me concentrate on the funky and wild aspects of this brew, it warms up and evolves to finally showcase some cherry character. The fruit addition is a little herbal, earthy and pitted.

The taste is acidic but not overly done. There is a minor cheesy quality just like the aroma led on that immediately evolves into a deep, rich tart cherry flavor. The cherry is surprisingly not medicinal at all and carries with it a very rich, natural tartness and lightly herbal to grassy character. An afterthought includes a mild note of tannic barrel character with a mild vanilla spice that mellows the finish a bit and welcomes you to take another sip.

This is a medium bodied brew that initially is quite fizzy and highly carbonated. While enjoying this brew throughout a fairly long duration I was able to swirl some of the carbonation out making for a more rich tasting cherry and smooth feel in the mouth. The smoothness to the finish is quite unique and really melds out that acidic nature of the brew. The alcohol (while listed as 5%) was completely hidden throughout this experience. It doesn't matter to me if fruited Drie Fonteinen offerings are 7 months old or 7 years old, I can't say no and throughly enjoy each experience.

750ml bottle, presented in a wired straw pouring basket at the Poechenellekelder in Brussels.

A huge, upright 180 degree pour from the waiter generated more than half the glass worth of soapy head in the proper Drie Fonteinen flute glass. It was perfect flamingo, pastel pink. The body had a sexy burgundy shine to its deep maroon colour. So sexy, my God!

The smell is simply seductive. Ripe Polish cherries with sweet and distinctive sherry or brandy overtones. It really reminds me of Polish cherry brandy. The smell is sweet and dry, similar to a rose wine - only with funk - and far, far more stimulating.

Drie Fonteinen's Kriek is considerably sour and funky, even by traditional lambic standards. This is a blend of 35% fresh gueze and it shows in the mouthfeel. The acidity keeps in line the sourness, producing a beer that is very drying and only mildly tart. At times it has an almost ash like soot, extinguished by acidity and that sanded-down sourness. Certain sips you might make out the gueze more than you notice the cherries.

The makeup is identical to cranberry juice: on sip you experience an instance of fruitiness that is followed by a harsh dryness. Each sample concludes with lingering, fruity dryness. Adding to the similarity is a body that is considerably flat and only lightly spritzy.

Of the Krieks I've tried, this taste was perhaps the furthest thing from the medicinal, cough-drop cherry flavour found all too often in the more commercial examples. Although the cherry flavour is sweet, the beer itself is by no means. It steered wide clear of sweet and went right down the road marked sour. The cherry at times tasted jam like, at others, brandy like. I think their secret is in the barrels...

I found Drie Fonteinen's Kriek to be unique amongst its fruit-infused lambic brethren. Although I suppose all real Kriek are different from one another as each traditional maker (or in this case 'blender') has their own distinctive style. Mr.Debelder: I like your sense of fashion!

Bottle from Monk's Cafe...
bottled on Feb 1, '05.
Appears a hazy, cran-raspberry toned rose with a small white head that fades into a tiny cap. Streaks of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is funky, with tart apples, raspberries, cherries, horse blanket, earthy, and old perfume.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with aged, tart cherries being the standout of the funky bunch.
Mouthfeel is sweet up front, quickly becoming tart, and running along the sides of the tongue.

The beer pours a reddish amber color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose... OK, I've had a sufficient number of lambics and gueuze not to be surprised by what I smell, but this is really over the top. This beer smells for all the world like someone took a dump in my glass. The barnyard aroma in this beer is about as intense as I can ever recall encountering, and it completely drowns out the cherry aroma in this beer (though it's certainly there). It makes for an incredibly complex aroma profile, as well as an intensely pungent one. Given the nose, I was prepared for the flavor profile, even if I didn't care for it. The sour component completely dominates everything else on the palate, with just a hint of cherry and light lime. Personally, I think sour flavors can add something to a beer, as long as that's not all that I'm getting. In this case, all I got was sour, and even after just one small glass, I could really feel the acid from this beer in the pit of my stomach (talk about instant heartburn). Mouthfeel is fairly light, with a moderately long, dry, sour finish. Alcohol is completely unnoticeable in this beer.

An interesting beer I guess, and I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it, but this is another one of those intensely sour lambics, gueuze and wild ales that I just can't appreciate (or understand how anyone else could appreciate).
