Leighton (15381) - London, Greater London, - JUN 11, 2013
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.

ctipping (539) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2015
750 mL bottle. Bottled 12/7/2006. Originally reviewed 4/6/2013. Orange body. Clear without much head. Thin collar. Smell is standard Drie Fonteinen funk. Bright lemon acidity. Barnyard funk. Nice. Taste is a bright lemony sour flavor. Funky, but not as much as standard 3F. Lots of pale malt and wheat. Low carbonation, slick and not overly sour. Slightly sweet. Nothing compared to Oude Geuze, but a great lambic.

Maakun (2056) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Slight hazy dark golden without any head. Apple, apricot, peach, pineapple, overripe mango, quite some funk, light lactic notes, sherry, light wood and vanilla, light leaves and berry pits. Light sweet and very light bitter and sourness. Medium bodied with no carbonation. Very interesting stuff, way more sweet and fruity than the regular gueuze.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Pours dark straw color. No carbonation. Some prickly mouthfeel from seemed still beer. Definitely to style. Aroma of tart grape skins and oak. Smells like bar wood and cellar winery. Flavor is subtle oak and big tartness. Finishes very dry and brandy wine like. Very nice.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
Zur Perfektion hat nur etwas Frische und ein guter Schuss Perlung gefehlt. Gut, auch die hier vorhandene Säure und Fruchtigkeit kann man doch besser. Ansonsten Balance in hefe, frucht, säure und Volumen. Sehr gut, einfach nur sehr gut.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle from fonefan - my Summer Santa. The lambic has got a hazy golden-strawy colour with a flat body and no head. Aroma of mild vinegar, mild acid, straw. Taste of mild acid, mild unripe berries, oak, mild vinegar. Sourness is well-balanced. Enjoyed it.

Clear flat sour goodness. Oak and barnyard yeast readiness. Really tart and mildly floral. Finishes super dry and oaky. Excellent!

baraciisch (2466) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... Aroma is funky like a gueuze, barnyard... Orange cloudy in color... Flavor is more tart than a gueuze, more like a lambic in that respect, but still with a slight funkiness in the taste... Finish on the palate is gently tart, not extremely intense... Enjoyable

pushkinwow (2345) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2015
2010 375ml bottle from Kamiel. Clear golden with a white layer of head. That first whiff reminds me why I love 3F so much and should by more of anything they make that I can get my hands on. Such a balanced and nuanced combination of farmhouse funk, balanced tartness, mild sourness, light lemon zest, hay, fairly dry with a touch of acidity on the finish, light funk and more barnyard. Doesn’t overwhelm in any particular direction or flavour but tasty, refreshing and enjoyable in all the right ways. Lovely.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3564) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2014
6% a reddish Amber our with a minimal head served in a teku glass at Luppolo 12. A nose of rich plum, wine, thick stone fruit malts really nice. The taste just knocks it out of the park! Tart fruity sour, a bit of woddsy barrel character on a light silky body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
