Blend No 78 - Season 18/19
Producer Says: 3 Fonteinen Oude Kriek is the result of macerating hand-picked whole sour cherries on lambic for at least four 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 35% fruit. The kriek lambic ferments in the bottle for at least another five months, and develops into a beautiful, refined fruit lambic. This unfiltered and unpasteurised lambic is all-natural with no artificial juices, syrups, or sugars added. Bottle fermented, unfiltered and unpasteurised.
This particular Oude Kriek has macerated for almost 7 months. The sour cherries have been macerating on lambic from one barrel and two brews. The lambic that was used for blending originates from another barrel and two other brews. 100% 3 Fonteinen.
