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.

Karyots (23) - BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2014
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.

ElManana (1307) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2014
Pours pale yellow with no head. Aroma is sour 3 fonteinen geuze, really dominating. Taste is very, very balanced. The sour of the gueuze lacks a little bit bit itís still very very good.

Hanoi (671) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle. 2012. Nose is is wet oak, slight barnyard, a touch of sour leading to light toffee. Cheese and very faint white chocolate . Taste vinegar, and vinous notes lead, before the emergence of the blond giving beer, giving straw, dry dusty farmyard yeast and the finish, a flash of sour green apples then is richly oak, white grape and a dry sour. The mouthfeel is not quite right, a little watery. The beer is a strange mix, which works surprisingly well, with the tastes coming in pleasing waves rather than blending or clashing.

tommann (3053) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014
375ml bottle, 2012 at 10.6%. Pours lemon gold with a medium head. Aroma is sour cheese, sharp lemon and a little ash. Taste has light lemon and straw to start. Funky cheese finish. Lemon aftertaste. Deceptively drinkable.
