Bottled (17/02/2006)
Amber-orangr color, no head. Sour, fruity redberry and rasberry aroma. Very fruity, a bit thin mouthfeel for a 6 % brew. Of course sour, but very balanced way. Fruity aftertaste. Almost session lambic to drink in quantities.

Skinnyviking (6746) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
Bottle. Low white and quickly disappearing head. Hazy yellow body. Horseblanket fruity grape vinegar aroma. Pleasant and yet spicy, fruity flavor of oranges. Low carbonation and a long aftertaste.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2008
Golden to light copper with small pale head. Nose is tart and apple cidery, suprisingly smooth and full. Same goes for flavor, smoothly sour with earth and faint fruitiness. Medium to full bodied, very smooth and round mouthfeel. Great.

Otje (677) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2008
Another great offering from 3 fonteinen. Pours a hazy golden beer. Lots of horseblanket in the nose, lemony and a bit woody. acidic taste with apple, lemon, some funk, wood and a bittering, dry, tart finish. Nice and refreshing.

Brix (633) - DENMARK - MAR 7, 2008
Tasted 2008-03-07. 2 years old. Pours almost clear, golden yellow with small off-white head. Aroma: Rotten apples (not bad). Flavours: Very tart and acidic. A little less sharp than I’d expected and actually somewhat round. Carbonation is very soft. A little too soft IMO.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Courtesy hopscotch. Pours a hazy, light tangerine-yellow body. A minimal off-white head fades quickly, leaving just a wispy film and minimal spotting. The aroma shows dry, sour lemons, oranges, and apples amidst the signature 3 Fonteinen barnyard funk. Flavors are more of the same, with screeching sourness showing just a tad bit softer than the Oude Gueuze. Very forgiving for the style, its incredibly drinkable and refreshing, yet still sufficiently sour. It’s very even keeled, perhaps a quality that the oak barrels impart. Finishes with a mouth puckering dryness, with sourness seemingly concentrated in the post-swallow remnants. Really good brew.

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Bottle. Sweet apple juice and musty hay aroma. Hazy amber color with minmal head. Tart/sour barnyard malt flavor. Sourness not overpowering - nicely balanced.

TrefwoordPunk (797) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a cloudy, hazy golden with a small and fading head and an acidic aroma of dry hay and sour fruits. The flavor is mainly sour, with a flat taste and a very smooth mouth-feel. I do like it, but this is a very uneventful lambic

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Bottle... VBWT2008... Extremely murky yellow ale with almost no head. Forget “barnyard,” the whole damn farm is packed into this bottle... manure, leather saddle, horse blanket, damp straw... you name it. Light to medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and ticklish carbonation. Very sour and moderately bitter with no sweetness. Acidic, bitter, and then dry finish. Bottle provided by ygtbsm94!
