The old one, must be from 2002, 7 years ago: Bottle at Alvinne pre-ZBF09. Quite vinous aroma, smells aged all right, but not bad at all. Clear brown colour. Small white head. Caramelly flavour. OK port flavour, sweet and quite acidic. 7 3 7 3 16
The new one, must be from 2006, 3 years ago: Bottle, 10.5% at Alvinne pre-ZBF09. Almost clear golden colour. Good slightly funky flavour, clean hop flavour. Good sweetness. 8 3 8 3 17

Bottle @ Kulminator, Antwerp.
Pours muddy orange with a great, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is tart, wet malts and some chewing gums and brett. Highish carbonation, great dry mouthfeel. Flavour is lovely dry, grainy malts, oranges. No indication of the 11%. There is so much balance in this one, nothing sticks out in a bad way. Great!

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2009 37.5cl bottle at de Kulminator, iRate: pours a rich red-orange with a creamy but thin white head. The Lambic takes over the aroma with nice apple, lactic sour, a bit of barn, etc. Dusty and vinous like I like it. The lambic also took over the taste since 2006 when this beer was brewed. The blonde ale that is mixed with this still makes a mild appearance in the first second but the tart apples and sour grapes put that to rest. Calvados comes in the middle. Slight touch of green but very very light. Ends appropriately dry. Great beer.

Dégusté avec french tickler le 7 avril 2007.
Murky caramel poor with a nice light brown creamy head. Aromas of oak, humidity, green apples, herbal, floral, raspberries, ginger ale and a hint of caramel. WOW! Acid from the 3 fonteinen but incredibly balanced. Explosion of flavors and mouthfee;. Nice dry and sweet finish. Added flavors of pomegranate and rhubarb. 11 %???

Thanks to Rene for the bottle, 2006 vintage! Poured translucent (at least initially) slightly pink-tinted orange without much head. The aroma had a lovely dose of funky gueuze and a little lemon over softer bready sweetness and a bit of peppery spicage.. really cool stuff! The flavor had a tingly, sour lemon and funky horseblanket and a great tripel component as well (strong lighter fruits (pineapple and a touch of orange zest), pale and bready sweetness, and a touch of black pepper).. finished more sour and nicely funky with just a little warmth. Slick on the palate with little carbonation.. dry from the funkage.. left a memorable, lingering funky finish. Excellent stuff!

Thanks Jason for sharing this 2006 vintage beer. The beer pours to a bright copper amber body with a thin white head. The aroma is really sour and funky. Sour starfruits and barnyard yeasts. Extreme funkiness. The flavor is much more tripel like than first expected given the aroma. There are lots of esters and funky yeasts. Perhaps muddled pineapple and plantains meets gueuze. Subtle spices from the yeasts. Refreshing tart palate. I liked this one a ton.

Bottle, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing. Pours a hazy orange-amber with a white ring. Very sour fruit aroma, with malt and a bit of funk. Taste is very sour and clean, with a hint of sweetness, of fruit, malt, and yeast. Lingering sharp sourness. Interesting and tasty.
