4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Sample from a 2002 bottle courtest of Joe and Allen. Pours a beautiful golden color with medium white head, wasn’t lasting. Notes were tons of dusty oak, vegetative scents, mildy acidic and sour lemons, grapes/vino, cheese and some more barn funk. Medium to fuller body. Epic sour ale from 3 Font.

Bottle, 2003 vintage,11/25/2012. Pours brilliant amber, huge fluffy head settles fairly quickly, sudsy lacing. Aroma is bright,floral and fruity, with tart apples and grapes, awesome barnyard earthiness, hay. Flavor has pleasant grape tartness, vinous quality, lemon, light funk and oak. Light, crisp and effervescent palate. The champagne of geuze, superb.

vintage 2000, i think time has taken it’s toll. it probably would be nicer a few years back. although the beer still is amazing but i think it had more potential than i gave it..

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. From trade with Papsoe. It pours and almost clear body, golden in color, and with a minimal sized off-white head. Barnyard, lemon, horseblanket and tart berries on the nose. Really pleasant, and that goes for the flavor too. It’s more lemony in the mouth, with the same funkyness found in the aroma. Medium body, tart and puckering, but a tad too high on carbonation I think. Anyway, it’s certainly a really pleasant one, pity it’s all gone. 111229

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer is golden hued and mostly clear with a small white head that leaves sparse lacing on the glass. The aroma offers a healthy dose of acid with white grapes. The flavor is bright and acetic, with more oak than was present in the nose. Classic Drie Fonteinen funk is present and enjoyable, as I was hoping / expecting. Some nice grape quality still exists, similar in some regards to a fine white wine. Pretty light in body with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, this was quite good, and I am glad to have tried it.

Thanks again to OteyJ for the treat.
Pours a light golden color with plenty of fizzy head. The aroma is dusty, cobweb infested basement with light grape and a bit of leather. The beer is bone dry in the mouth and the flavor is bursting with vinous tartness and extremely light fluffy grape sweetness. The finish is shockingly clean and dries the mouth enough to warrant yet another sip. Delicious.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Armin. Thanks Man!!! Poured a golden orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Huge carbonation. Smell is amazing, dusty, horse-blanket, white grapes, tannin, funk, and cheese. Taste is tart grapes, yet well-balanced, with flavors of pears, green apple, funk. dusty horse blanket, tannin, and basement. Medium body with fizzy carbonation, which is really amazing for an eight-year-old beer. This beer was awesome, and I am so glad I got a chance to try it; great lambic.

Bottle @ Stephen’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks Armin! A touch hazy, peachish yellow appearance with a bubbly, carbonated, off white head. Quite tart and funky, tangy grape, somewhat cheesy, dusty, funky barnyard aroma. Well carbonated. Quite cheesy, funky/dusty, lemon citrusy, grape, very refreshing, delicious flavor. Moderately sour but very quenchable. Full flavor, tons of complexity, and a delight to drink. Muchas gracias Armin!
