omhper (18944) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2004 Bottled (labelled Drie Fonteinen Druiven Geuze).
Hazy amber. Fruity citric nose. Acidic and full bodied, lively and fresh. The grape character is subdued, leaving the field open for more regular gueuze flavours, but still adds soem fruitiness and bitterness from the grape shells. Intricate and complex, but doesn’t take me to the same levels as their schaaarbeekse kriek.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2009
At Akkurat, Stockholm, bottled 2000-10-18 (1 year old Lambic with Italian Malvasia grapes)
Hazy golden color; big fluffy head. As usual from Drie Fonteinen it has an impressive aroma: barnyard, cobwebs, citrus fruits, sweat; grapefruit and very light grapes; very light vanilla too, or cookies; pungent, persistent. The mouthfeel is sharply acidic, with strong grapefruit flavor; the body is quite strong in the beginning, surely more dry and aggressive at the end. The final, if possible, has a subdued residual sweetness; and of course a strong lemony character; pleasant astringency too at the very end. You can drink without stopping.
