3 Fonteinen Oude Kriek
What the brewers say
"This particular Oude Kriek has macerated for 6 months and 10 days. The lambics in this blend originate from 5 different barrels and 4 different brews."
What our panel thought
"Ripe and rustic cherry aromas with wood and wet straw in the mix. Soft and luxurious body filled with cherry-pie filling with an underlying barnyard note. Bright finish filled with more fruit and lingering lactic acidity. Amazingly complex earthy, leather, and wine character."
What our editors thought
"Deep almond and marzipan cherry pit and rich dark cherry in the aroma with pleasant touches of diesel funk. The sip is dry rich cherry, leather, mushroom, and charred rare steak with a bright and perfectly balanced acidity."
