Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with thin bubbly white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is funky farmhouse Belgian gueuze with a hint of tannic musk. Taste follows, light sourness, more funky, slight metallic note. Definitely pretty darn good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 Equilibrated season beer with second fermentation using Brettanomyces. Slightly lead and earth aroma. Good acidity and flower aroma. Interesting connotation of season tradition and wild yeasts.

Wonderful stuff. Del Ducato gave the touch of gold to this saison. Great lambic bretta aroma here. Pours hazy golden with good head and lacing. Tart finish. Citrus and light grass. Very nice balance. Wonderful beer. Tap at Churchkey.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottiglia 75 CL. Colore oro pallido con una schiuma fine e persistente. Nell’aroma la fa molto da padrone il lambic 3 fonteinen con aggiunta di leggere note fruttate. Al palato è molto leggera e di facile bevuta con un’acidità al punto giusto, la carbonazione è abbastanza alta. Un ottimo blend insomma. Birra fantastica.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Appellation Comely Bank tasting. Thanks to Benjii for this one.
Appearance - cloudy golden orange with a very thin head.
Nose - oranges and ginger (once it was pointed out to me). Something farmyard and foul is lurking in the background.
Taste - more citrus, ginger and going into that dirty note again.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a sour but not tight and lean texture. It’s dry and sour on the finish, but the finish isn’t the long persistent dry finish I’d hoped for.
Overall - after great anticipation this was disappointing.
