COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Note the typo on the label, stating Tommy instead of Tomme which is his real name.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle, 75 cl. Hazy deep orange with a foamy, lively head. Crisp in aroma as in flavor. Earthy, slightly musty and sour notes of oak, lemon-zest, barnyard, sweaty armpit, grapefruit. Salty palate, very minerally. Bretty and funky flavor, tart yet somehow smooth. Medium body, lively carbonation. Very dry finish. Delightful.

JorisPPattyn (8395) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2012
It’s Armand & TommY, on the label, whether you like it or not Gushing to rather small yellowish head over hazy orange-amber beer. Very lambic-like nose, lemon, lemonblossom. Dry, lemony, very outspokenly tart lambicflavour. Just the very lemony flavour is reminiscent of the Tomme Arthur lambic-tries; for the rest, this is 3 Fonteinen. Dry-out effect, real acid-thinning. Not one for the fainthearted. Mind you, the 3F character reigns, and I’m not talking Indianapolis!

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
75 cl bottle @ home. Bottled on 17.02.2011
Aroma is sour and tart with lots of earthy notes and grapefruit. Palate is too high on CO2. Flavour is really sour with grapefruit, earthy notes, some peppery spices and hints of orange. Hardcore stuff.

lusikka (7047) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
750 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a foamy head. Aroma of apricot, dried sour berries and birch leaves. Flavour of pale malts, really strong and sour, dried, tangy berries, lemon zest, wood and apricot. Full bodied, foamy mouthfeel and high carbonation. Finishes strong, sour and slightly dry. Surprisingly rich, but the amount of carbonation disturbs a bit. This will probably settle down during the years.

olio (7430) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
75 cl bottle.
Pours hazy yellow color with a large head. Aroma of rose hip, grape fruits, sour fruits, mild yeast notes, floral hops and some rowan berries. Flavor of rowan berries, grape fruits, grass, yeast notes, mild spices and rose hip. Lots of CO2, a bit too much though, sour fruity palate with a mouth drying finish. Very nice.

75cl, as 3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze ’Armand & Tommy’, new exclusive collab. brew Anno 2012, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex sour brew, woody and slightly biitter/fruity, balanced, cloudy, good head, very good brew, yet very expensive

callmemickey (3566) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2012 Bottle opened August 6, 2012

A: Cloudy orange body. Massive porous head forms instantly and slowly recedes. Thick, crusty lacing.

S: Must, earth, lemon, oak, and wet hay.

T: Like the nose, there is a nice pleasant musty funk that is accentuated by a clean zippy citric character.

M: Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, mellow, refreshing acidity. Light tartness in the finish.

O: Looking forward to seeing how this develops with time. Additional development of the earthy notes in both the nose and flavor will do wonders for this beer as it already has a good foundation.

illidurit (2243) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle shared at RBSG 2012 Grand Tasting. Pours yellow with ample carbonation -- too much actually, needing some vigorous swirling to bring it back down. The lambic used is old but this tastes young somehow, very bright and sour, funky lemonade, acidic lemon zest, palate zapping with even some bitterness in the finish.
