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.

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

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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

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.

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.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

Pours a dark yellow with no head
Aroma is light grain with not much else
taste is light sourness with the expected musty lambic flavour
interesting beer worth trying but this producer can do better

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle with/from friends, thanks! pours hazy/cloudy golden-orange without a head, no lacing. toasted wheat, rustic hay, apricots - very fruity, classic 3f-funk, hint of sweetness - or maybe an impression from quasi-absence of carbon dioxide, mustiness, old grassy and herbal hops, pepper, minerals, light to medium acidity, soft oaky notes. flat, enhancing oiliness, drying herbal-grassy-woodsy finish. assertively green apple tart yet it seems almost balanced after all. tasty doesjel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home. I am the worst at saving beer so here I am popping Lambic randomly. Pours flat orange but very appealing perhaps it’s subconsciously knowing what’s in glass. Nose is funky hay. Tastes of hay, fruit skins, wood, funky cheese, some grapefruit and slightly salty. Flat yet lovely palate. Linger red wine vinegar on palate. Lovely.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from 2006. Pours a clear orange color producing a small white top that leaves small lacings but lasts. Acidic aroma with apples, grapes, citrus peel and some barnyard funk as well. Taste is rather balanced, I had expected alot more sourness, faintly sour and acidic but quite mellow. Hints of hay, citrus, leaves and apples. Light to medium body and quite softly carbonated. Dry finish with a lasting acidity.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2006 vintage bottle thanks to Martinus. Pours a clear golden and looking completely still. Aromas of dust, cheesy funk, light mint and some rubber are what I could make out. Taste is fruity an acidity is surprisingly soft. Body is light to medium and there is close to no carbonation making the mouthfeel really oily. Overall a really nice "loerik", I’d drink that casually if I could!
