Please note the age of the sample you are reviewing when entering your rating. While many factors determine whether you have had "Jonge" or "Oude" Lambik, a general rule of thumb is to enter 1 year-old or older lambik under "3 Fonteinen Oude Lambik" and anything less than 6 months-old under "3 Fonteinen Jonge Lambik".

For those between 6 and 12 months of age, you should take in to consideration the character of the lambik. Samples presenting themselves as hazy/cloudy, with some head-formation and residual sugar should be entered as "Jonge Lambik", while those that are drier, higher in clarity and with little/no head formation should be entered as "Oude Lambik".

Out of the barrel at 3F in Lot. 9 month old. Very nice and smooth, not too sour, round and fresh. Hints of grain, fresh smooth. Round fresh slightly sourish funky but still smooth mild aftertaste. Great!

At 3fonteinen lambik-o-droom. Welcome glass from Armand at the door! Thanks very much. Flat and almost clear orangey golden. Straw, grass, dough, grapes, apple, nutmeg, white pepper. Medium sweet and light sour with minerallike saltiness. Medium body, oily feel.

Sampled at the new location, courtesy of Armand, thanks! 9 months old from ex wine barrels. Hazy golden with a few bubbles.Lots of red and green apple, apricot, hay, dry red wine with a touch of sweet white grapes too. Some obvious tannins, vanilla and some twigs. There’s a nice cheesy funk underneath the fruits and a hint of curry. Almost medium sweet and light sour. Medium bodied with very light carbonation. Nice stuff!

Draught @ 3 Fonteinen Open Beer Days. Slightly unclear orange golden color, no head. Light wood tart, wood and orangepeel and grapepeel tart in the aroma. Flavor is similar, soft tart, grapepeel tannine, lightly wood. Decent body, soft carbonation. Nice.

hackobock (3544) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2016
September 3, 2015. Straight from the barrel at 3 Fonteinen.
Clear golden with a very small head consisting of large bubbles that quickly dissipates. Aroma is light fruity with lemon, green apples, some grain, funk, yeasty sulphur notes, grass and hints of oak. Taste is light funky, light tart with a very light dry grassy bitter finish with hints of minerals, some lemon, funk and egg notes. Medium bodied, a bit oily texture.
Decent, need some time to get rid of the eggy sulphuric notes.

aleigator (804) - GERMANY - JUN 25, 2016
Pours a dark amber color with no head to it. Smells of dusty toffee, a floral funky tartness with a bright cheese rind and wet grass. Drinks flat, with a soft, silk mouthfeel to it, which offers a pleasant sourness, without becoming overly dry or funky. Pungent sourness up front, with a soothing aqueous note to it, with funky straw and young cheese. Pluckering sour at the back end, with dried orange peel and dust, while finishing very clean and silk with its initial aqueous quality. Very balanced, pretty sour with a balanced soft mouthfeel, which makes it very drinkable despite the lack of carbonation.

MrOrla (2304) - Odense C, DENMARK - APR 30, 2016
Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, light banan ester, spice, light marzipan notes, latic acedic, sour fruit. Taste is rather sweet, light acedic.

Koelschtrinker (17704) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 12, 2016
Saurer Antrunk mit deutlich steigender Bitterkeit. Die Säure steigert sich im Mittelteil ebenfalls, erkennbares Getreide, Zitrone. Vollmundig, etwas brotig, die Säure nimmt zum Ende leicht ab, die Bitterkeit erreicht ihr Maximum. Gut. 8/10/11//11
