3 Fonteinen Intense Red Oude Kriek is blend of young lambic with 40% whole Polish cherries (with pits) added. It was originally bottled in 375ml bottles and is labeled at 5% ABV. In late 2015, a new batch of Intense Red Oude Kriek was released in 75cl bottles and all subsequent batches have been in in that size. 3 Fonteinen Intense Red Oude Kriek was released to coincide with the 2013 Toer de Geuze. It represents a departure from traditional 3 Fonteinen labelings as it does not have the emblematic 3 that is present on other labels. Intense Red was released both in Europe and North America starting in late 2013 and received label approval for distribution in the United States on August 24, 2013.
