4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at a tasting in early 2011. Pours hazy burnt orange with an average white head that leaves just a thin collar of lace. The nose is dark for a gueze with berry fruit, lemon and vinegar acid, and just touches of malt and vinegar oak. The flavor is more intensely sour than I expected given the nose, with some white wine vinegar, plenty of lemon, and a bit of berry fruit, vanilla, and light malt. The body is medium and tannic with average carbonation and a long tannic and dark, sour finish.

750ml bottle shared with ippopotamo36 @La Tana. Unclear amber with a big off-white foam. Aroma is citric, vinous, lime, a note of wood that emerges after a while. Flavour is powerful, citric, tart, not as complex as I expected but so elegant... medium body, good carbonation. Another gem by 3Fonteinen!

Bottle share at Craft Clerkenwell, thanks to Tom! 2010 vintage. Cloudy orange, very small white head. Aroma is strong lemon and peach - potent. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, smooth. Not the over-carb I’m used to in the style. Taste is smooth lemon, earthy and twiggy, very dry. Very good, flavoursome stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2015-03-04. Hazy amber body with a nice creamy head. 3++ Aroma is lightly funky and pleasantly fruity. Light straw and barnyard grows as you delve further into it. 7++ Flavour is interesting, pleasantly sour throughout but it is pleasantly rounded and not overly aggressive. Modesty earthy barnyard accents. Moderate fruit character throughout. Smooth average bodied palate, soft effervescent carbonation. More nuanced than my notes reflect, it was surprisingly subtle, shockingly quaffable, and pleasantly refreshingly sour. Too busy enjoying and not enough note taking! Bottle shared by Travlr.

Golden orange pour. Substantial barnyard aroma of lighter funk, some sweet notes. Tart flavor but no overly so. Barnyard funkiness , some citrus find and zest. Complex and almost a champagnelike breadish taste. On my tp 3 ever
