4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Di colore rossastra, con schiuma praticamente assente, questa "birra" ha la capacitŗ di bilanciare perfettamente le note acidule del lambic con la dolcezza mai invadente delle amarene e i sentori di rovere. in bocca il delicato aroma di amarene diventa piý complesso e scontroso man mano che la birra si scalda nel bicchiere. Bella, leggera, delicata ed elegante come le donne di Beersel.

Big lambic beer. Pours hazy ruby with pink head and lacing. Some sour cherry and some grapefruit. Bitter peel and some cracker. Not as complex as I imagined it would be but quite superior nonetheless. Bottle pour at Sovereign.

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze ciemny rubin z niezbyt obfita rozowa piana. W aromacie nuty dzikie, obora, kwaskowosc i wisnie. W smaku pysznie kwasne z kontra lekkiej wisniowej slodyczy. Czuc zapach skory jak z paska do spodni, nuty debowe i owocowe jak granaty czy czerwone pomarancze. Wysycenie na srednim poziomie, goryczki w zasadzie brak. Bardzo pijalne i orzezwiajace w gorace dni. Pyszne!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 mL bottle. Bottled December 14, 2007. Originally reviewed 10/16/2011.
Murky ruby body with a miniscule head. Retention is poor and Iím left with a ring around the surface and not much more.
Musty, funky, rife with barnyard aromas. This is why I love Drie Fonteinen lambics; theyíre funk-forward. There is an acidity that carries a hint of cherry.
Right up front, I do get a sour cherry flavor, but it fades to funkiness and oak quickly. The middle is very much a hay and wood flavor, with a healthy dose of funk. The cherries return in the finish. Itís a battle between horseblanket and cherries that the cherries eventually win through a lasting tartness.
Maybe not as effervescent as Iíd like it to be and the sourness does fatigue the palate just a bit. Iím being nitpicky, but itís true. The carbonation isnít as high as the Oude Gueze, but itís still substantial enough to avoid complaint.
I love lambics with a lot of funk to them and this one delivers as all the Drie Fonteinen lambics seem to do. The acidity is still strong, but enjoyable. Good stuff and I look forward to comparing it to the Schaerbeekse I have stashed away.
