Poured into a tulip. Vintage of 25/04/2011 with a best before of 04/2016. This is the van schaerbeekse krieken version.
3.5 A: Well hazed cherry plum color. Just about a finger of frothy pink head. Retention isn't great and no lacing is left.
4.5 S: Big, bold tart cherry - very welcoming. Like most 3F brews, this has a minimal acetic sourness and plenty of funk. Tangy fruity funk from lactic acid, musty basement, sweat socks, dry dusty wood planks. Light mixed berry noes underneath. Oak with a touch of vanilla. Touch of garbage-like funkiness to round this out. Very complex in the funk department and great interplay with the cherry. I guess I could use a little more sourness, but I'd take this any day over Cantillon's ass-puckering sourness.
4.5 T: The taste gives a nice tart punch that wasn't present in the nose. There's also more acetic sourness that I would have expected if you know what I mean when I differentiate between tartness and sourness. Cherry is definitely a big part of the taste and is quite potent. Just enough sweetness to balance the sourness. The funk, however, either isn't as strong as in the nose or is just hidden behind the rising components of the taste. However, the funk is still easily detectable and adds to the complexity quite a bit, it just isn't as strong as in the nose. Musty basement, apple orchard, sweat socks, and dry wood. Oak with plenty of vanilla. Very nice.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Carbonation is on the lower end, but is fine. The issue I have is that the carbonation isn't very spritzy, which is something I like in these sort of styles. Light creaminess. Super smooth.
4.0 D: Another quality beer from 3F. A funk lovers kriek to be sure.

It seems that 3F has come out with a few batches in 2010 and 2011 of a version of the Oude Kriek (normally not brewed with Schaerbeekse cherries) that is brewed with 35% Schaerbeekse cherries. It should say on the label, "Oude Kriek van Schaerbeekse Krieken 35%".
750ml into a tulip. Bottled April 2011.
A: Ruby red with a nice pink head.
S: Soft sweet cherry flesh, earthy tartness, wet hay, oak. The wood and funk get very strong as it warms.
T: Very tart - sour cherries and wheat, sweet fruit, lactic acid. Earthy and lots of oak.
M: Soft creamy carbonation, light to medium-bodied.
O: I like this a bit better than Cantillon's regular kriek. Great sourness with a slightly better fruit profile.
