Unexpectedly bitter. I actually tasted a little hop, remarkable for a lambiek beer. The oak barrels are there to and add some extra specialness to the already amazing beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at Olympen, june 28th 2013. Hazy golden body, almost no head or carbonation. Aroma is funky with citrus and berries. Taste is lightly sour, vinegar and berries, balanced by a sweet syrup/raisin taste which makes the beer only slightly sour. Also a higher bitterness than many lambics. A pretty good - and different - beer from 3F

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Bruce’s. 2006 vintage. I can’t recall where I picked this up. The pour’s amber with a small head. The nose is pollen, some leaf pile. Strong woodyness. Acerbic brett. Green apple. The taste is peaches, cobweb. Earthy molding orchard fruits. Dog hair. Bretty tang. Nice, sharp lemon. Wonderfully expressive, vivid flavors. The carbonation’s very soft, though this doesn’t detract from the mouthfeel of the beer. Overall, very tasty. I had assumed this was the black sheep of the family. Clearly this can stand on its own.

Bottle at Jack’s farewell at Bruce’s. Pours vibrant orange with a fine white head which becomes a thin ring around the sides. Nose is heavy orange, shortbread, funk, hay and grass. Taste shows very fresh grass, really quite sour, with orange, lemon rind and citric sweetness. Bitter on the end with a touch of peppery spice. Really good stuff

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - many thanks to the man of the hour, Jack. Pours murky orange with a fine, creamy white head. The aroma loads it up with the grass, light funk, some randy citrus, orange. Light sweet finish, sweet and fresh grass, moderate funk and sour bite, some orange rind. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Good grassy and fairly sour finish, some rindy citrus bitterness. Great balance. Probably the best beer of the evening.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2006 bottle, 05/14/2013. Pours ruddy orange, lighter highlights, flat save for a few bubbles around the ring of the glass which are quickly gone. Aroma is lemon, grapefruit and sour apricot, earthy barnyard component, mild cheese funk, wood. Taste is milder than the aroma, soft lemon and grapefruit, soured malt notes, mild bleu cheese, clean finish. Light body with a bit of texture, drinkable and not very tart. Well made, enjoyable lambic-like brew.
