4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
75cl, 2006 bottle at Kulminator. Needed 15 minutes in the fridge before we could drink it to prevent an explosion. Pours a blonde colour with a beautiful, pillowy white head that dies down to moderate. Classic geuze nose of horse-blanket, leather tobacco pouch, cigar box, lemon and grass. Brilliantly musty with horse-blanket again, Brett, leather and cigar box notes. Unreal! Moderate carbonation and a light CO2 prickle. A foamy mouth-feel with a musty, lemon citrus linger. Dry finish. Only mildly sour, all the classic geuze qualities without the sourness. Really interesting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 18.3.2011
Aroma is very earthy with manure notes, but in a good way. Flavour has hops and some sourness from lambic. Too much CO2 on palate. Nice one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reuss. 3fonteinen blend called .750ml bottle consumed at kulminator.
Unlabeled bottle and listed as 6.5% abv. Description reports that this is a blend of a belgian ale and lambic from 3font.... Pours a light hazy pale
golden light brown...Aroma is lightly guezelike that collaborate with
a sweeter light grain and lemon accents, some pear to boot... Flavors
are very lightly tart with a soft profile overall that seems like a
combination of a gueze and a lightl hopped earthy pale ale.
Carbonation is effervescent and spritely carbonated. Body is on the
lighter side but works well with the liveliness of the brew itself.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A super cool older vintage shared at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas by the owner. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. A huge aroma of fruity yeast, dust, some hops. The flavor is a mix of musty cobwebs, yeast, fruit, lots of sweet hops. Nice. A treat to try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A huge white head over a blonde appearance. Strong bretta, woody funky nose, with just an hint of hoppiness. Very balanced in mouth, with a nice sourness not completely overwhelming the top fermented character. Pleasant and very quenching.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, vintage 2003, 4 years old
Hazy light blond color. Fresh aroma, floral, with some citrus fruits; later it shows some malt and light vanilla and wood. Good mouthfeel, nice clean malt flavor, almost cookies too, and a quite strong bitterness; there is also a hint of smoke. A bit of originality, in this good Belgian Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Bruxellensis. Another lambic-ale blend! I support those, generally. Yellow-gold color with a thinnish white head. Aroma is tart citrus--lemon and bitter orange--with some odd strawberry notes. Flavor is tart lemon and grapefruit with a touch of berry sweetness. Bitterness starts light and gains strength for the musty finish. Tasty, well-balanced.
