Every summer, our circle of local owners of Schaarbeekse trees expands a little – also because we give away a tree or two left and right. In the summer of 2020, this community reached over seventy families. Every lot of cherries is also inspected carefully on colour and ripeness. This is how, last harvest, we received some highly qualitative cherries, but they appeared not to be real Schaarbeekse; it held the middle between a sweet cherry and a smaller sour cherry and had a dark red skin rather than a deep purple one; probably Noordkrieken.
Anyhow, we put them for more than six months on a small barrel, before blending and bottling. The final fruit intensity is at 417 grams of local sour cherries per litre of local Kriek. 100% 3 Fonteinen brewed lambik.
