3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 and a half finger white bubbly head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon with some yeasty notes. Taste is sour lemons with some woodiness and yeast and mild underlying sweetness. Highly carbonated with a medium body leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A very well done lambic that is worthy of a sampling.

Bottle. A bit of dust or early leakage dried on the lip of the bottle. Dark amber with slight cloudy and thick noisy head. Salty edged Gueze aroma. Dry and lightly salty, a bit woody. Strong condensed flavour.

37.5cl at home, brought by Olly. This was again loaded with Armands signature character that you find in all his vintage gueuzes! Earthy, musty, bacon, grain and a funky sourness. Well carbonated, golden hazy colour and big White head. This one was sampled a bit young for my liking but should be great to age! Wish the bottle size was bigger though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
37,5 cl bottle courtesy of Travlr. Botteldatum 17/02/2011. The pour is hazed golden orange with a 2 inch foamy egg white head. Falls rocky with splotchy lacing. Streaking tiny bubbles fill the glass. The aroma is tart apple, soft woody earthiness, faint lemon citrus sour vinegar. Soft gentle nose. The taste is the citrus lemon sourness, followed closely by bright dry tartness, hay and grass, closes with wood and yeastiness. As it warms, get some of the acetic yeast that I associate with the 3 Fonteinen house character. The palate is light bodied, fine active, champagne like carbonation, dry tart finish. Refreshing, easy drinking beer. Very much appreciate the bottle Gene.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 375ml (bottled 02/2011, vPBF)
Deep golden color, small white head. Tart fruity, leathery lambic aroma. Medium-bodied. Tasty, tart, fruity flavor. Perhaps not so mouth-drying fruity as many lambics, more dry. Horseblanket, sherry, peach. Nice as always.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle @ vPBF 2012.
Pours a golden colour with loads of bubbles and a white head. Aroma of strong ripe apricot, earth and barnyard - classic Gueuze aroma. Flavour is pretty strong on the sour side; full on sourness at front, then leathery and floral notes kick in. After that it’s tart fruitiness and ends aggressive, tingling, also very smooth and grapefruity. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Quite complex and has aggressive. Yummy.
