mikeyo1 (152) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
bottle @ home, 2006 edition. Pours hazy orange with no head. Aromas are quite mild sour for a lamic, barnyard, citrus, leather, wet hay, wood, wheat and yeast. Slight notes of vanilla. Crisp and light bodied. Flavor is sour and dry, initially of lemon, brett, sour green apples, wheat, unripe red currants and oak. An interesting gun powder note lingers along with lemon peel and blood orange for a long time in the aftertaste. Sour medium bitter finish.

Habanero (2490) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of brett, caramel, citrus and vinegar. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and flat carb. An excellent Lambic.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - APR 6, 2014
05/04/2014 Ma che siete venuti a fà (750ml bottle). Dorata acida, appena torbida, schiuma modesta poco persistente. Al naso sentori di stalla, cantina, note di cuoio, citriche, intensa e (relativamente) pulita. In bocca è acida decisa, citrica, un po’ più ruvida e spessa di altre 3F, nel finale una leggera nota acetica. Corpo medio-leggero, quasi piatta. 3 Fonteinen è sempre una garanzia.

Lilja (1553) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2014
Med ölföreningen, smak och doft av äpple, jäst, vita vinbär, vått gräs, trä. Torr och frisk. Saknar kolsyra men smakerna är fina.

Vignale (2003) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2014
2006 vintage drucken med ölföreningen. Äppeljuicefärgad, klar, men viss bottensats, ingen kolsyra eller skum. Doft av vete, jäst, syrliga äpplen och aningen gummi. Vita vinbär, omogna smultron, lätt syralighet, lite platt munkänsla men trevlig snäll funk. Trevlig men kanske en liten oren bismak och så är jag lite ovan vid lambikens lite platta munkänsla när inte kolsyran finns där.

Nidaros (40) - NORWAY - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle @Diskoteket, Trondheim. Dark copper colour withouth any head or carbonation. Smells of horsblanket, hay and layers upon layers of funk. The palate serve the same funkyness alongside a nice lemony tartness. Mild accidic aftertaste. Great beer that I was very pleased to find at my local bar.

deekyn (1135) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 19, 2014
A- pours a lightly hazy copper amber with no head or action. No lacing. S- all barley wine esque. Grains, dog food, rice, graham crackers, dark fruits. Mild tea. Apple cider vinegar. M- light slippery body with an acidic and cider light palette. No carbonation. T- Granny Smith apple skins, vinegar, acidic acid, lemon zest, twigs, sun tea are all up front. Grass, bitters and sour mash in the middle. Middle brings on the oak twigs. Lemon continues on strong. Vinegar resonates. Ending is sour and tart. More lemons and grass. Some dry mustiness, grit and minerals.

Tried it at Stockholm Beer & Whiskey Festival 2013. I always love 3F but this wasn’t one of their best.
