750 ml bottle shared with grub.

Pours a clear dark orange/red, thin off white head forms, touch of pink, settles to a thin ring, few lace spots. Smell is intense, tons of sourness, oak, very woody, earth, cherries, very acidic and tart, horseblanket, crazy. Taste is similar, nice fruitiness and cherries, very acidic, lots of oak, tannic, sour/tart finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium bodied, light burning, acidic.

Bottled April, 2010. Pours a hazy burgundy with a small head, shows to be a brilliant ruby red when held to the light. Nose is deep, rich black cherries, spices, of course a tight brett, and funk. Mouth is very tight, which surprised me as it's still quite young. Dry, sour cherries up front, puckering to the mid and back palate. Lots of oak, sour fruit elements, and a really dry, tight brett. Very nicely put together. Acidity is moderate, though I'm particularly sensitive to it. A different animal than the Lou Pepe Kriek, perhaps a tad beneath it at this age. Nice stuff.

Pours out a really cherry red opaque with slight white suds. Not much lacing. Great looking drink here.
Smell is wonderful. Cherry and fruity sourness with sugars and yeast.
Taste is sour but oh so addicting. Cherry galore with sweetart finish. Dark aftertaste with sugars and cream as a finish.
Mouthfeel is all over the place. You have the sour first shot then the dark sourness followed by a sweet creamy feel, like you just finished off a half gallon of cherry ice cream.
Drinkability would be a 5 if I could have this all the time. An 8 hour round trip prevents me from that.

Bottled date: October 17, 2008.

Cranberry, blood-red color with an orange-red edge alongside the thin, white head. Not much carbonation activity in the beer to be seen. One of reddest-looking beers I've ever seen. Looking back at my Oude Kriek review, they're visually similar. Incredibly vibrant when held against the light. Smell carries a lot of the oakiness from the wooden casks, with the massive amounts of sour cherries present in this. Slight hint of a medicinal quality. Can't really smell the "rareness" factor of Schaerbeekse cherries, but they are considerably more sweeter on the nose than the Polish cherries used for the Oude Kriek. Very little funk– not as much as I had originally anticipated for almost a 3-year old bottle. Apple skin tartness is also present on the back side.

Taste is very clean, almost vinous too. The sweetness of the Schaerbeekse cherries is fantastic. Lots of nice lactic acid goodness, oaky earthiness, prickly tartness and a thin sherry-like dryness. The age shows with the tartness being a profound quality in the taste. Natural and organic-tasting overall. Not too different in taste compared to the Oude Kriek, except there is a bit more sugary goodness for the palate.

Light-bodied mouthfeel with little carbonation and a thin dryness in the finish of the beer. Great tasting lambic, for sure. I'd say the price is justified a bit– was just hoping to have experienced a bit more, considering the rarity of these cherries. Just lucky to have been able to get a bottle of this and give it a try. Another well-done item by Armand.

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.

Had the 2005 version recently, my original review was for the 2009. It much improves with age.

There is more bitterness and sourness, its better incorporated into the overall beer. Its just a better beer. The flavors pop more, its not sweet, there is no aftertaste. Several years on this beer is a good thing.

Beer is dark red, forms a head of small pink bubbles that leaves some but not a lot of lacing on the glass. Its dark and hazy, looks great.

Aroma is pretty sour, almost ammonium in aroma, a very slight tinge of something bad. Overall, pretty good with one bad note.

Beer is quite sour, lots of lactic and some citric. Acetic is lesser but is still there. The cherries are not as forward as I would have wanted. I think the off aroma I was smelling was actually the cherry flavor. Second taste, not as tart as I want it to be, its like a big red gueze with a fruity aftertaste. Interesting.

Notes from 6-28-10 - poured into a Lindeman's stange glass - 1 PT 9.4 Fl Oz cage-corked bottle

Appearance: Pours a scarlet red. A big head quickly turns to very thin, bubbly, white head.

Smell: Sour notes, fresh cherries, barnyard funk, oak, and a slight hint of vanilla crosses the nose.

Taste: Tart with sour cherries, barnyard funk, wood, and vanilla. Not too heavy on the cherries and also, not too sweet. A sour, mouth-puckering aftertaste lingers in the crisp, clean, dry finish.

Mouthfeel: High carbonation. The initial sourness really lingers in this beer. On the whole, the feel is acceptable for the lambic style, suggestive of champagne and sour candy.

Drinkability: Very drinkable if you like a lambic beer that emphasizes tartness over sweetness.

Comments: Overall, a fine kriek lambic. It carries many of the fine characteristics found within the Gueze style. This is my kind of lambic!

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

Bottling Date: April 28, 2010

Appearance: Slightly cloudy Violet-yellow color. Moderate light violet head that dissipated fairly quickly.

Smell: Mild funk and tart cherries.

Taste: Tart cherries come across upfront with a mild splash of funk. A healthy dose of genuine sour cherries comes across strongly. The tart cherries feature prominently in the finish. I also get a bit of leather notes.

Mouth-feel: Medium-bodied (for a lambic/wild ale) with a moderate level of carbonation which results in a satisfying mouthful.

Overall: It would be nice if I hated this, because it's pricey and something I can't justify buying often. No dice, it has a good flavor profile, the cherry notes come off as genuine not artificial, it looks good, and it has a pleasing mouth-feel.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a St. Bernardus chalice.

Bottled on 01 March 2005

A: Pours an excellent oxblood/dark raspberry color. Small pink head. Very hazy and cloudy.

S: Succulent tart cherry and oak. maybe a slight touch of yeast?

T: Tart and sour fresh cherry flavors. Earthy oakiness. Juicy and bitter with a touch of spicy yeast.

M: Tart and peppery. Dry astringency in the finish keeps the sourness from being overpowering. Sticky fruitiness coats everything in the mouth.

D: A year ago I never would've thought something tart and sour could be considered even remotely refreshing. I guess that proves our palates are always evolving. This is awesome!

I'm happy to enjoy this bottle of Kriek shortly after trying the same brewer's Oud Kriek just a few days ago. Much of this review is the comparison of the two.

As stated with the Oud Krik, this beer opens with less flare tha expected- only light pressure forces the cork out of the bottle and with a slight pop. The pour delivers a deep redish, pinkish, purpleish concoction that releases a loosely knit head that billows to the top of the glass, allowing only a 3/4 pour into the chalice. Lacing very well, the beer struggles to hold it's foamstance above the lightness of the sourness and astringent brew.

Strong aromas of vineous cherries, red wines, lactic vinegar notes and with a strength that waters the mouth, squints the eyes, puckers the lips, and causes light sweating. Earthy tones of barnyard, aged and wine-soaked oak, and musty cork notes show the power and complexity of the wild yeasts.

The clean lactic character leaves just enough malt flavor to showcase the rare Shaerbeekse cherries well. Supportive flavors of lemons, lines, crabapples, grapes, and under-rippened berries provide much complexity in the backdrop. Very clean tastes that begin to leave the earthy, musty tones to the aromas, and not transfering deep into the flavor profile.

The mouthfeel is sharp, acidic, and pleasantly astringent without becomming grainy. The weight of the malts is the only slight buffer from the extreme tartness of the beer. The second pour from the 750 became much smoother and richer textured with the inclusion of the sediment.

This beer seems younger or greener than the Oud Kriek. The Shaerbeekse cherries may be a more tart version of those used in the Oud Kriek, or perhaps I have a new bottle that is less aged. Regardless, the comparisons are so slight that I might not recognize them if not having both within the same week. Fresher, more tart, and with an overall vibrant quality, I may give the slight edge to the Shaerbeekse version.

It pours a slightly hazy swirl of mahogany, ruby, and scarlet. A thin wisp of sparse lavender pink head is gone in a flash. Lacing...lacing? Nah, not this beer.

The aroma grants a vinous acidic edge that soon blurs to allow tart cherries and a reined barnyard funkiness to lilt through. A hint of fruity sweetness tickles peripherally.

Upon sipping, it's tough to tell what comes first, as it's a splendid blend of mellow, fruity balsamic vinegar, light grape wine, and wet-horse earthiness, but it's the tart, crisp pie cherries that make the big impression. An acidic bite ebbs to a lingering, lightly tangy dryness. Complex, blended, and artful, it's a total pleasure.

Light bodied, the puckering sourness and fruity essence land a fun and interesting presence upon the palate.

What's it say when a sip of beer makes you think of a savory cherry pie, albeit one with some down-home farm funkitude? It says someone is a master with their fruit lambics. It's in turn subtle, bold, patient, and brisk. I was almost worried about getting a pit with my cherries. Well, not really, but you know what I'm saying. And I'll tell you I was sad to empty this bottle, and even sadder that it was the only one I had. But there is more in my future, of this you can be sure.

Bottled 28-04-2010

A: Pours a beautiful sunset red-orange with no head to speak of. Not even bubbles coat the top

S: Funk, tart cherries, oak, and yeast all mingle together to make quite an impressive smell for a sour fruit lambic

T: The barnyard funk hits first, but is quickly overtaken by notes of oak and tart cherries. Neither slam hard, but together make an amazing, slightly complex beer. No sweetness present to balance the sour out, but it isn't really necessary as the oak and cherries do the job

M: Light-medium body with moderate carbonation

O: The only thing I can seriously slam this on is the price tag, although the style can vaguely justify it. This beer does an amazing job balancing everything out, especially considering there isn't really that sweetness that you get in some lambics. Definitely seek this out if you can afford it

A- This might be one of the most beautiful beers I've ever had the pleasure of pouring. Deep deep red, almost crimson red, with a gorgeous 2 finger pink head that quickly dissipates to nothing. Seriously sexy looking beer.

S- Smell is pretty nice, a lot of oak and sour funk. The cherries take a backseat but are definitely along for the ride, they have a very tart aroma not as sweet as other Kriek style beers I've smelled.

T- This one tart mofo. Lots of oak and wild yeast sourness up front. Cherries come in to kick your ass mid sip. The cherries are the star of the show, very tart upfront but a nice gentle sweetness is there to help move things along the palate towards the end. Theres tons of complexity but the tartness can be overwhelming to some of the more subtle characteristics.

M- Spot on for the style. Plenty of carbonation and not too thin.

O- This is an amazing beer. Best Kriek I've had the pleasure of tasting. The Schaerbeekse cherries are truly unique and are an obvious choice to pair with lambic style beer. Be ready to sip as this beast is very very tart.

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.

Appears a pink toned copper with a mild white cap that slowly faded into a mild head and collar. Scattered bits of lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of obvious tart cherries, rhubarb, vanilla, slight vinegar, raisins, and oak.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with standout vanilla, oak, and cherries.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, sweet, tart, lip smacking, funky, and addictive.

750ml bottle, corked and caged. bottled 22 march 2006. sampled march 23/08.

pours deep red with a small very fine pink head. the head drops fairly fast and leaves spotty lace.

aroma is nice. smells much like the oude gueuze just before it. lemon. malt vinegar. crackers. grain. white bread. light sour cherry.

taste is great. wow, that's sour! intense, lingering sourness. sour cherries for days, then gueuze sourness to follow. lemon. bit of grapefruit. hints of cinnamon and brown sugar. leather. tobacco. horse blanket. touch of orange. vanilla. raw oak. bit earthy. sourness and more sourness. no trace of any sweetness.

mouthfeel is good. incredibly dry. very find medium carbonation level. fairly light body.

drinkability is good. nice balance, but the sourness causes it to be a sipper. i find myself taking a sip and then shaking my head as the intense puckering sourness takes over, then slowly subsides. i'm really enjoying it. the bottle was a touch pricey, but i'd happily get this one again.

Bottled in October 2008. Consumed 03.15.2010.

A: Pours a bright ruby red with a nice light pink head that eventually settles into a nice ring around the edge of the glass.

S: Lots of cherries alongside a little bit of sweetness. The cherry component of this one has held up quite well over the year-and-a-half since it was bottled. Behind the cherry is a little bit of lactic acid alongside some oak. The cherry definitely takes the center stage, which diminishes what could otherwise be a fairly complex lambic.

T: Again, lots of cherries upfront. Here, however, the oak and lactic sourness come more into play. As Drie Fonteinen intended, there is no acetic acid in this one, leaving the lactic and cherry to play off one another nicely, with just the slightest touch of oak in the background.

M: Thin and refreshing with moderate carbonation. More acidic on my tongue than cheeks and throat, but a very nice mouthfeel nonetheless. Not super-sour, but also not terribly sweet.

D: Low abv with a near-perfect level of lactic sourness. This is one to be savored, but one that I could easily knock back a few of.

Thanks to foofaa for bringing this one to ffej of july. Not sure of the year but definitely a recent vintage. Served alongside an original 2003 Drie Fonteinen Kriek.

A - Pours bright ruby red with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty streaks of lace down parts of the glass.

S - Smells of fresh sour cherries, wet oak, musty basement funk and a bit of sugary sweetness. The cherries dominate the nose from start to finish.

T - This one is sour cherries through and through. Hints of musty basement, barnyard funk, bit of sugar and plenty of oak offer some some contrast but the cherries are never far from the front. Finish is dry, lingering on the palate long after consumption.

M - Smooth body with a ton of flavor and moderate carbonation. Tart feel with a touch of sweetness, pretty dry toward the end of each sip.

O - This is what I am looking for when I want a true kriek. The cherries are intense yet the sour funk keeps them in check. This bottle reminds me that I need more of these asap.

Bottled April 26, 2011 - Poured into some Goose Island stemware. Beautiful cherry red body with a thin layer of pink foam. Musty barnyard brett and lightly soured cherries on the nose. Wet hay and a bit of cheese. The flavor is filled with dry, tart, cherries and light, earthy, malt in the background. The cherries in this are excellent. The body is smooth and creamy with a nice tart/sour kick. Light, spritzy bubbles. Slightly more acidic than I remember the regular Oude Kriek being. Overall, this is pretty tasty stuff. I personally like it more than the Oude Kriek, but probably still prefer Cantillon’s Kriek, especially with the $28 price tag on this bottle.

Pours a very dark ruby red color with a very thin redish pink/off-white head that quickly dissipates without a trace of lacing.

Tart, lactic sour aroma that has a massive amount of sweet dark tart cherries. There's also some funky earthy oak along with some candy sugar.

Tart, puckering medium body that is pretty sweet and not very acidic. Soft carbonation up front with some slight funk, earthy oak and vanilla. The cherries are very prominent, providing an extremely fresh, sweet juicy fruit flavor which is an excellent balance to the funky tart sourness. I'm also picking up a slight nut presence that adds to the earthy character. Dry finish. This beer is very complex, well balanced and insanely drinkable. Highly recommended.

750ml bottle vintage 2008 from K&L generously shared by alfrantzell. Thanks a lot, Arne! This is one of the more difficult names to spell, as evidenced by the fact that it's spelled differently on BA vs. RB. Both sites do agree, however, that it's a damn fine beer, and I also agree with this assessment.

Pours a deep, clear crimson color with a decent pink head that bubbles away fairly quickly.

Aroma is loads of tart cherries, oak, and funkiness, including my favorite aroma: horseblanket. It's like they took an old blanket off the dirtiest, sweatiest horse in the barn and threw it right into the fermenter. I love it.

Flavor is also really awesome and heavy on the cherry. Somewhat sour with brett and lacto/pedio. Very earthy and oaky. More funky horseblanket and definite hints of other cloths used to cover various livestock and zoo creatures, whatever those may be.

Dry, acidic, and lively on the palate. Medium body. Exactly to style on the mouthfeel.

Drinkability is good but not quite outstanding. Overall though, this beer is outstanding. Easily one of the better fruit lambics out there.

I ordered a bottle for our table at Teresa's Next Door. Poured into a flute/wine glass.

Appearance: It pours a cloudy red color with a layer of off white head that fades to a very thin ring on top of the pour.

Smell: This one is really tart right off the bat. Sour cherries and some funk along with a mild vinegar note. The cherries are the star here.

Taste: Even more sour than the smell. Vinegar and tart cherries with a lambic funk. This is a really refreshing fruit lambic. I'm getting a mild bitterness from the aged hops. The finish is very tart.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a finish that is incredibly dry.

Overall: This is the first time I've gotten a full pour of this beer and it didn't disappoint. Jowl tinglingly sour and quite refreshing. A classic fruit lambic.
