3 Fonteinen “Intens Rood” (Intense Red) is the result of macerating hand-picked whole sour cherries on lambic for at least six months, in a proportion of one kilogram of fruit per litre of lambic, and is then blended again with more lambic to obtain a minimum intensity of 450 grams of fruit per liter. The kriek lambic ferments in the bottle for at least another six months and develops into an intense wine-like fruit lambic. This bottle fermented, unfiltered and unpasteurised lambic is all-natural with no artificial juices, syrups, or sugars added. Traditional Lambic is living, cultural heritage rooted in the Zenne valley!

Sampled may 10th 2022 . Pours a dark purplered. Small white head. Scent is full, intense cherry, oak (wet oak) , mildly acetic. Taste is dry, sharp, not too acidic, actually. Dry, loads of cherries still. Awesome how fruity this remained.

Bottle, 5-7 years old? Thanks for this treasure David! Pours red to purple, mostly clear, pink head. Starts with a interesting Maggi, dust, almond, herb, aroma. Medium full dry, foamy, chewy. Nice berry, cherry, ribena, jammy, good balance to the tart and bretty notes. Very drinkable.

Bottle shared. Bit hazy very deep burgundy red. Massive cherries, soft funk, light lactic lemon, almonds. Solid sour, light sweet. It's good, but I prefer their unfruited beers.

No pop, pours deep dark red, tiny bit of carbonation. Smells loads of sweet, juicy cherries, some sourness, light funk and wood. Heavy sour but not sharp. Deep, intense cherry flavour, amazing jammyness, surprisingly dry. Awesome. Happy birthday Armand!

Blend 83 bottled 6/19. Murky red, no head. Brooding sour cherry aroma with almonds, some lemon. Pretty much flat but has a kefir-like plumpness to the texture. Tastes pretty much as it smells with some wood creeping up towards the end. The richness of the cherries goes pretty well with the sourness that's presumably partly the cherries and partly the lambic. A little more magisterial than the oude kriek.
