4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
2006 bottle @ Moeder Lambic, Brussels, courtesy of OleR and shared with OleR, Inbreak and ej. Legendary - cheers Ole Richard! :-D Pours a deep orange-brown body with a small white head. Aroma is deep spicy cellar notes, tart red fruity tones, cinnamon, hay, straw, hints of cherries and stable funk. So complex and yet subtle; this one sure smells promising. Taste is mellow dark malts and red fruits up front, then apple vinegar, stable funk and finally sharp lemony acidic tones, balsamic, acetic acid and red berries. Extremely complex, very tart and all round a splendid sour experience. A great sour from 3F.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled around 2009. INCREDIBLE. Baskets of raspberries dipped in tart on the nose. Sweeter raspberry on the flavor up front, sliding into wood, slight slight hints of vanilla, and funk. But a tamed, polite funk, thatís brilliant. Nice long soured finish with hints of cherries blended well. Craft at itís finest!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle at Grote Dorst, pours a cloudy ruby red with a pink tint and small pink-tinted beige head. Aroma of faded raspberries, some barnyard funk, and some dusty notes. Flavour is similar, bringing out potent notes of raspberries upfront, followed by barnyard funk, and some dustiness. I wouldíve loved to try this fresh to have a point of comparison, as the raspberries are a little faded. Nevertheless, this is very complex, especially towards the end of the glass when the yeast kicks in more. Faded fruitiness and funky finish. Delicious stuff, but no where near 3 Fonteinen Framboos, which I canít help but use as a point of comparison.

Darkened orange. Aroma of over-ripe berries, hints of paintthinner, barnyard/dried hay and some woody notes. Taste is acidic, cellary, loads of berries and fruityness and bone-dry.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared with Bruce at DHVL, 22/03/13.
Hazed crimson with a thin off pink head that retains well.
Nose is tarte cherries, vinous raspeberry, light fruit balsamics, wood, musty, grandads shed (refurbished!).
Taste comprises a ton of berry fruit goodness for a 7 year old lambic, rich raspberries backed up by cherries, sugars, balsams.
Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation, dry and rich fruit veins in the finish.
Top bollocks !

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared amongst BAís for one of the most ridiculous "lunchís" at the Torst opening!
Poured side by side by side with 2012 Blabaer and 2005 Fou foun.
Bottle poured a deep cherry red. Nose was straight up raspberry jam. A delicate balance between cheese funk, sweetness from the raspberry and tartness. By far the most complex out of the three bottles we had. Although well balanced flavors, all of the flavors were explosive.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had at the Grote Dorst. Pours hazy red with some brownish tints and a small pink head. The nose is big raspberry, some brown sugar, some vinegar and lemons with funk and leather. The taste is sweet with a balanced sour which eventually takes over. Finally! The mouthfeel is great and not overcarbonated unlike most of what I have had from 3 Font. Itís crisp and clean, body is light and the finish is long. What a beer,

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Surt med Chris Anker. Pours mostly clear red with a small creamy pink head. The aroma is loaded with raspberries and other ripe berries like blackcurrant. Acidic notes in the background. The flavour is tart and has notes of grapefruit, cherry and loads of raspberries. Fruity and tart berries in the finish. Only slight notes of barnyard and horse blanket. Great!
