Lambic - Kriek
Bottling date: July 16th, 2018
3 Fonteinen Oude Kriek is a traditional kriek lambic released annually in several batches by the brewery. It is produced by macerating cherries, including the pits, in young lambic. After bottling, it is stored in a warm room for at least four months to help with secondary fermentation in the bottle. Oude Kriek is released in 375ml and 750ml bottles and was previously labeled as 6% ABV, though older labels show that it was once listed at 5% ABV. Currently, the ABV varies from blend to blend. In 2021, a 1.5L magnum bottling was released for the first time.
