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.

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.

tectactoe (2882) - Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle: Thanks, Mike. Enjoyed side by side with Zomer. Pours like bright copper pipe that has been scraped and cleaned with wire brush; foamy, fizzling white head, big bubbled, gone within a few moments. Aroma is outrageously funky, tart, and fruity. Tart lemon, barnyard, sweaty funk, musty cork and cellar floors, sharp apple skins, vinegar and acidity about, gets your saliva glands rolling. Taste is more of the same, funky lemons, tart and sweaty yeast clumps, wet oak, horseblanket, sour stone fruits, white grape skins, a hint of vinegar and more finishing acidity. Sharp, acidic mouth feel with a dry, dry, dry finish; prickly and effervescent on the palate. So damn good, funk and tartness that canít be replicated.

BOLTZ7555 (2879) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle shared at Dakís tasting. 24 karat pour with a nice 1/4 inch head that melds into just a whispy white cloud. Aroma of grape, lemonpeel, grass, earth and funk. Pretty assertive aroma, more so than the flavor. Flavor is light and refreshing. Great for a hot AZ day...a little jaw locking power with tart Jolly Rancher, citrus pith, lemon drops, maybe a little peach/tangerine and barnyard. Pretty dry and a little dusty. Really tasty!

RexTalionis (2862) - FINLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle 75 cl, BBE 2020. Pours hazy orange in color with a frothy whitish head. Notes of apples, vinegar and light stable. Creamy mouthfeel. Very sophisticated. The sharpness of geueze is for sure there, but yet it feels so smooth in taste. Creamy, apples in aftertaste and some garden almost spicyness is there. Nice slightly sour finish.

BenH (2819) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle. Amber with white head. Aroma is full on funk, 3 fonteinen house character, musty, earthy, almost smokey. Taste is more of the same, funky, musty. Moderate sour with a long finish. Top stuff

Huhzubendah (2797) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Iíve had this a few times now - small samples at tastings. Finally pulled a bottle from the cellar to share with my wife tonight. So glad I did... The beer appears golden colored, light, hazy straw. The head is pure white, fluffy, and thick, measuring nearly two inches. The flavor is unbelievable. Light and refreshing. Simple yet complex. Hay, grass, lovely citrus. The acidity is so mild and delicate, the beer is slammable. On par with Loerik and J&J Blauw as one of the best gueuze lambics I have had. I could drink an inordinate amount of this, if only that were possible. Amazing. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-28-2012

Taste this beer 2 times, first from (750ml bottle) @ Alvinne. Second time @ 3 fonteinen self with Armand and 11 other beer people and may 2011. Hazy golden color, with a off-white head. Aroma very fruity (grapefruit, lemon) bit florals, and earthiness. Medium tot full body. Flavor again lemon, grapefruit, orange, nice soft mouthfeel and a dry finish. For me: the best gueuze ever drinking from 3 fonteinen !
