sherm1016 (1243) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2015
375ml bottle, 2012 vintage, thanks Henrik! Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is funky, acetic, lemon, oak, familiar lambic funk. Medium to heavy on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is lightly tart, some malty sweetness, maybe a little caramel, a little nutty, some oak, some tart funkiness, a hint of booze, with a light funky finish. Interesting. Smell is very familiar lambic, but the flavor is very different.

Flavour is medium sour, acetic, bitter, lemons, light malty, some alcohol, pouring some yeast in makes it more spicy, bitterness is acetone-like, tart-bitter finish. Medium bodied. Itís alright.

JefVerstraete (2040) - Ghent, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden colour, thin white foam. Funky aroma with notes of barnyard and vinegar. Vinous and fruity. Malty notes. Refreshing and well balanced. Good.

Keldergeest (1) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2015 does not count
woody, raisin, golden, hazy, minimal head, medium sourness, lightly bitter, soft carbonation, astringent. As a big fan of the constituting beer styles you ask yourself is this more than the sum of the parts? I think not. The geuze element loses some of itís freshness and dryness and the tripel only surfaces at the very end, with an unconvincing hoppy bitterness. Tasty beer, but in the end not as good as a 3 Fonteinen geuze. Need to try the tripel used one of these days.

Aroma is Pils malt, funky and farmhouse yeast, black walnut notes and light pear esters. Flavor is sweet malt, spicy and nearly fusel alcohol, earthy, barnyard, and funky yeast with pear esters, stale hops, light bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Wheatish yellow in color. No head. Fantastic balance between a 3 Fontein and a strong blond. Result is that you can taste both at the same time without any one overpowering (not very sour, not very hoppy). A very different taste experience for sure.
