Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. In the midst of an onslaught, this stood out. Tart. Acetic. Rich. Smooth. Cleansing. All at once. Subtle lemon. Bit cheesy. Bit funky. Lovely balance. A highlight.

Habanero (3769) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottled. Pours a hazy amber with an average, off-white head. Aroma of brett, notes, barnyard, some citrus, caramel and dried fruit. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and a little tart. Medium body, watery o oilytexture and soft carb, A very nice and smooth Lambic.

Steve_0 (3740) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Bottle at home with friends courtesy of Dave. Thanks Man! Poured a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Dust, funk, horse blanket, light citrus, apricot, peach, and citrus. Taste is tart lemon peel, herbal, dust, basement, urine, sour and yeasty. Mouthfeel is medium with fizzy carbonation. Very well-balanced beer and I am glad I got to taste all of these side by side. Definitely the best beer of the seasons.

theisti (3734) - Kansas, USA - SEP 20, 2011
750 ml bottle courtesy of mreusch, tasted along with the Zomer. The pour is a haze yellow golden along with a nicely formed white head. Aroma is the house character of 3 Fonteinen, a bit of plastic, and light sour and funk in the back. It all comes to together well, and is quite soft and approachable. The taste is lemon citrus tartness right up front, followed close behind with the funk of the nose, some of the burnt plastic near the end, and the tart sour lemon carries the longish finish. The palate features spritzy champagne like effervenseance. Clean and tart finish, really drinkable stuff. Thanks for sharing these gems Matt.

Enjoyit (3734) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2012
Hazy orange of color with a white color. An aroma with sour notes, vinegar and dry white wine. A flavor of green grapes, green strawberries and sour and fresh.

Kinz (3696) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Drake’s 10k courtesy of travlr. Medium amber, low level acidic aroma, lots of horseblanket. Flavor matched. Pretty far to the mellow horseblanket side of things as opposed to the bracing acidity of a Cantillon, but a very nice beer indeed. Somehow had a level of subtlety and sophistication you wouldn’t find in the style.

Palme (3639) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2011
0.75l bottle @ RBNAG11. Pours a clouded orange body with a thin sidesticking white head. Aroma has grape, sour apples, brett, apricots, leafs, grass. It has a average carbonation level and a oily to sticky mouthfeel. It’s acidic and lemon strong but not too much in any way. Tart and horsy finish. Great stuff and thank’s for sharing!

Ktwse (3631) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle @ Moeder Lambic. Pours hazy orange-ish amber with medium tall, thick white head. Aroma of apples, grapes, honey, light citrus, peach, very very complex yet balanced. Taste is initially almost sweet before turning a rich tart sourness. Lingering tart finish. Incredibly dry and crisp, light bodied with fairly soft carbonation. Hands down the best geuze I've had! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle from Rick.
Pours a deep cheddar orange with a nose of crisp, sour leather berries, lemon, and must. Flavor is tart leather raspberry and cherry with a lemon zest in the finish. Tingly and lingering on the tongue. Heck yeah!!!

chibuck (3504) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2011
slight gusher, pours a very dark gold, almost like copper with a big bright white head, huge bubbles of head... aroma is nuts, smells unreal, like its at least 10 years old, funky horse blanket, just sick... taste is equally as sick, just tastes old, spider webs, horse blanket, hay... one of the best lambics, period. Competes with Loerik, enough said.
