Armand Debelder + Tomme Arthur blend - the results of a fun day a 3 Fonteinen + 4 year old Boon Lambic and Armands own Lambic from 2008.

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

750 ml bottle to snifter (generously shared by alexsdad06; thanks Brad!). Looks flawless for the style; a translucent geuzy orange with fluffy eggshell head. Smells great! Funky and cheesy with some oak as well. Sme citrus as it opens up too. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel. Outstanding.

The beer pours a hazed golden brown with a rocky white head that lingers. The aroma is funky earth, garage floor, and vinegar. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with above average carbonation. The flavour is sour and woody with plenty of funky flavours. There is both a sweetness and a sourness to the finish with the sour winning out.

Bottle. (this one from Graham) From notes. A: Cloudy particulate in orange with a foamy white head. Nice lacing. N: Oak from a mile away. Lots and lots of yeasty funk. Touch of salty cheese. Grapefruit and lemon. Peppercorn. Almost rich in its intensity. T: Densely sour. Good acidity and a hefty malt-body. Yeast and wood run through it. M: A bit oily and very full. Almost creamy. Off style, a bit, but it works. Easy to drink. O: Fantastic. Might be my second favorite beer from 3F.

Bottle I was saving for my daughter’s 1st birthday. Bottle was highly carbonated. Deep amber pour with a thick massive white head. Lightly hazy with a touch of suspended yeast. The nose is absolutely incredible - musty/funky aroma. Hints of tropical fruit, passionfruit and a bit of soft horseblankety funk. Softly woody with a bright tartness. Restrained acidity with a light straw character. Some nice graininess in back of the fruit and bretty funk. Loads of soft carbonation. Some light citric character initially but as it warms up it there is a little bit of soft leathery funkiness and a soft spiciness along with a touch of lingering acidity. Just a touch of cheesy character as well. Incredible brew.

Bottle, shared new years eve 2013/14, as noone had brought decent champagne. Hazy golden body, big white head. Aroma of apples, grapes, funk, wood. Taste is pretty sour, with grapes and citrus fruits, barnyard, cardamom and other spices, hay. Aftertaste is sour with leather and wood, clean dry body. A very good one!

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with minimal head. Funk, cheese, horse blankets and all that. Some tartness, very nice.

Staffan47 (880) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2014
Nyårsafton. Typisk 3F i doften. Spannmål och lite ättika, mindre än vanliga oude geuzen. Elegant och balanserad. Låg funk men dock.

Oklar gul-orange med ett stort guld-brons färgat skum. Doft: Vinäger, äppelkällare, regnvatten, lite hav, jord. Smak: Vinäger, frukt kärnor, tok små äppelkart, röda bär. Mycket fresh doft och smak. Jätte god :)
