Bottled: Dark golden coloured. Unclear. Dense beige head. Very tart and earthy nose. Notes of berries. Flavour is very sour with a balanced fruityness. Its a very astringent flavour and very grapish. Is very refreshing and cleansing. Definately another very good gueuze from 3 F.

A: The pour is a cloudy bright copper color with tons of white head and a nice lacing on the glass.
S: Just a ton of wonderful funk hits the nose as soon as the cork is popped. Lots of barnyard, wet hay, and a bit of sweat. There is plenty of green apple and lemon to provide tartness as well.
T: The flavor is just so typical of Drie Fonteinen lambic. Lots of pungent and intense funk flavors followed by a sharp and crisp lactic acidity. A nice green apple tartness and some lemons in there as well.
M: The body is medium with plentiful but not overwhelming carbonation.
D: This is just another exceptional gueuze from Drie Fonteinen. I’m happy to have tried this and would gladly drink this, or any of their other beers, again.
