3 Fonteinen Schaarbeekse Kriek wordt bekomen door het macereren van lokale handgeplukte volle Schaarbeekse krieken op jonge traditionele lambik gedurende minstens Ă©Ă©n jaar, in een verhouding van Ă©Ă©n kilo per liter. De kriekenlambik wordt geassembleerd met jonge lambik en gebotteld waarna onze fameuze Schaarbeekse Kriek nog eens voor minstens Ă©Ă©n jaar verder rijpt in de fles. Verfijnd en met evolutie in het glas. Natuurlijk fruit, zonder toevoeging van sappen, siropen, of suikers. Ongefilterd en ongepasteuriseerd.

3 Fonteinen Schaarbeekse Kriek is the result of macerating local hand-picked Schaarbeekse cherries on young traditional lambic for at least one year, in a proportion of one kilo of sour cherries per liter of lambic. The cherry lambic is then blended with young lambic and bottles, after which our famous Schaarbeekse Kriek matures for another year at least in the bottle. Refined and with evolution in the glass. Natural fruit, no juice, syrup or sugars added. Unfiltered and unpasteurised.

Inky purple color. Flat no head. Intense cherry pits, cherry pie, funky cobwebs in the nose. The nose is unreal. The palate isn’t as tart but it’s intense fruit character. Amazing nose and good palate. Really amazing

Bottle, blend 89 from 18/19. Deep red with a pale pink head that lasts a little while before fading to the rim. Mellow cherry aroma with jammy and almost kirsch-like intense ones, with wheaty crackers and oak behind. Not complex, regal. A bit more from the cherries upon a sip -booming sweet/ jammy flavours, subdued weedy/ harsh stone notes, marzipan, focused sourness. A little old lemon, crackers and oak, but really about the cherries. A fair way off dry at the end. Another really lovely one.

Bottle sample @ Billie's 2021, shared with Brewver BE crew.
Couleur est pure bourgogne, pourpre, col fin rosé.
Arôme est fruité, intense sur la cerise, effet frais, arbuste et verger fraîchement ramassées.
Palais est, comme le nom l'indique, intense dans l'apport de la cerise de Schaerbeek - c’est fruité, généreux, effet un peu râpeux, noyaux de cerise, chair de cerise avec un excellent effet de barrique.

Intense complexity and a really good beer still but ultimately a hint over the top age-wise.

Sampled OBD 2021 . Pours darker, unclear red. Small, nearly no white head. Scent is full, intensely sour cherry. Mild age, works perfectly with the beer though. Taste is full, intense schaarbeekse. lovely !
