Hoprider (134) - DENMARK - APR 24, 2015
Pours a clear golden orange. At least the first half of the bottle. It stays pretty clear throughout. No head. The nose is mostly on oak and earthy aromas. The taste is on the lighter side for a 3F lambic. Some fresh lemon, again earthy tartness, a hint of leather and a slight bitter sensation in the end. The mouthfeel is thin to oily with very little carbonation. Refreshing and easy drinking is the verdict.

CapFlu (4719) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
Pours a headless cloudy orange coloured body. Nose of lemon and floor cleaner. Flavour is good tartness but lacks the depth and puckeringness one would expect from Drie Fonteinen. Purchased a 375ml bottle at Metro Liquors University Heights for around $22.

craftycarl21 (2290) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 21, 2015
375 mL bottle, had a few small samples from various bottles at Churchkey. Hazy straw color. Like 3F Oude Geuze but not quite the same depth. Expectedly slightly lower carbonation, very basement dank and musty, less vibrant than Geuze or Golden Blend. Still awesome funk, but not the same level.

Mortlach (1108) - Rome, ITALY - APR 6, 2015
375ml bottle shared @La Tana (Rome) with ippopotamo36. Unclear pale orange color with a small white head. Aroma of bretta, barnyard, hay, citric notes, nice but nothing exceptional for 3F standard. Flavour is medium to low sour with citric notes, tart, quite persistent. Medium body, low carbonation. A very good gueuze, but I expected something more.

mikesaum (615) - Newark, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours into a flute, mostly still, darker orangr yellow in.color. aroma is lightly funky and very fruity. Taste is slightly tart, fresh lemon flavor, a bit of funk then has a acidic finish. nice, but not worth the $20 i paid for it.

Bov (10180) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 31, 2015
from Erzbierschof - quite clear amber beer with no foam; funky barnyard and cheesy aroma; fairly sour, good malt backbone, dry and long sourish aftertaste of barnyard, cheese and apples

[ bottle ][ ½ of 37.5cl ][ Tasting ][ $30 ][ Tulip ][ 03.29.15 ]
fiery copper orange, thin white head drops quick, tepid. Soft citrus and cobweb nose, pale malt pillow, stinging citric acids throughout. Super pleasant palate, light acids, very young doughy, light cobweb. Very soft now, 1-2 yrs still.

cpetrone84 (1605) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pour is golden amber with a small amount of tight white head. Nose is softer than some other 3F, light cob web, a touch of funk, tangerine and golden fruits. Everything seems a little soft and not as bright. Flavor is the same. A bit dusty, slightly malty, a touch sweet, tangerine behind, slightly sour. Lighter body, strong carb, dry finish. May need some time, just not as expressive as their other gueuze.

UXO (671) - CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Pours hazy deep golden orange with a thin skim of white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is slightly muted, complex, horseblankety funk, tart citrus, woody and leathery, tobacco. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate tart, mild salt. (9/10) Medium bodied, zero carbonation, dry tart finish. (4/5) A very good still gueuze. (“Doesjel" means “sleepy” - as in, it hasn’t been awoken by carbonation, geddit?) Because of the lack of carbonation, it comes across very similar to an unblended lambic, but this is in fact a blend of one, two, three, and four year-old lambics. (Really more like a tart uncarbonated white wine than most beers one could name.) The absence of carbonation means you can sip this for a long time, appreciating the changes in flavour as it warms and opens up. A lot of fun, and definitely worth trying for a sour aficionado, but not as good as the carbonated versions - I find the carbonation adds some texture and even some flavour, really livening it up and bringing it to the next level. (16/20)

rodenbach99 (3466) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Une bouteille 02/05/2013. Une drôle de bière plus près de la curiosité. Un robe orangé sans mousse. Un nez de sucre blond, légèrement gueuze. Une bouche qui ressemble à du ginger ale flat, elle n’a aucune texture. Manque d’acidité. Je ne comprends pas trop l’intérêt de cette bière, qu’est qu’une levure dormante ? Une cellule dormante !!
