UPDATED: OCT 30, 2011 2006 Vintage unlabeled 75 cl. bottle/shared@Kulminator: brief sweet, fruity, yeast, hoppy upfront, bitter (Kerkomse triple) followed by musty, lots of horse blanket, sour lemons, dust, slight grains, cobwebs (3F lambic) with a dominant strong, zesty, spunky bitterness like akin to what you get at the 3F Geuze, fuity, bitter, very hoppy, lemony, musty sour, slightly prickly, really digging this combination of a blond ale and lambic, should be done more frequently/// sampled two more different bottles, the proportions between the two beers does seem vary quite a lot, last one 3F kind of overwhelmed but still great, like it more when the ale is featured more

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2011
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.

laiti (5406) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2011
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.

pantanap (3349) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2010
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. 7/4/7/4/15

douglas88 (5787) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2010
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.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - AUG 12, 2008
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.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2007
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.
