Shared with Hoprider, a huge thanks to mr. Enjoyit for getting us this badboy. Pour deep ruby red, with a small slightly pink head. Aroma of rasberries, slight funk, tart, vinegar, sour sweets. Pretty darn delicious. The taste is rater sour, with a nice amount of fruity sweetness. Medium bodied, with an average carbonation. - sure as hell is delicious, and this truly is a huge lambic.

Bottle: Cloudy, red/orange with a trace of head. Very rich raspberry aroma. Taste is more..much more...of the same.... Heavy and thick feeling...tart and a little funky. Amazing how much flavour is packed into this. Wonderful.

Clownoisseur (389) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2015
2014 vintage. Pours a deep ruby with pink and amber hues. A few bubbles gather but disappear quickly. Remains still. Aromas are Huge raspberries, strawberry, cherry, wet oak, cobweb, barnyard and light sweet Fruits and yeast. Taste is incredible! (Lots of wow!) Raspberry jam, raspberry pastry, raspberry candies, cherry pie, strawberry sour candy, lots of wet oak and deep house funk. Light Brett but assertive lacto. Flat in the mouth was a slight knock but the flavors were bold enough to forgive. Finishes nicely tart mild acidity and semi-sweet and semi-dry. Really great stuff!

Bottle Shared with Kraddel. Been acking to try this for quite some time since 3 Fonteinen is my favourite Brewery. Fruity, Fresh, perfectly Balanced. Amazing!!! The only remark there could be from my side is that it could be a little more thick in mouthfeel.

Fritz123 (1477) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Drank about a gallon of this at the Shelton Fest in St. Pete, FL. Pours a deep red rudy with a pink head and lively carb. Aroma is dank strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. Also some acidic vinegar and sweet tart. Taste is big raspberry and black raspberry, tart acidic acid, and oddly enough apple. (I had a LOT of wild ales, lambics, etc. My palette was probably fucked up beyond belief.) Heavy carb, light body. Beautiful beer with amazing tart and fruit charactertistics.

hivemind (842) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle at Frank’s, thank you guys. Musty rusty red pour and heavy strawberry nose. Medium acidity / low tart / medium-high sour. Fairly vapory and extremely thin-bodied. Traceless.

Brigadier (3345) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2015
750 ml bottle
The end of Cleveland Beer Week brought with it an opportunity to get a shot at a world class lambic. Other than some flaws in the nose that keep it from being a Top 10 personal experience it was worth every penny of the $2 per ounce pour. If you get your hands on a bottle drink it fresh or let it sit for a few years. Either way you should have a great time.

Aroma / Appearance - A ruby red core tickles the glass with a rich red base. It almost looks like somebody pureed raspberries then filtered out the pulp. Musty raspberries, stale chocolate, and a distracting smell of new bandaids provide the Achilles Heel of this beer.

Flavor / Palate - Sharp raspberries and vinegar scour clean the tongue. Cherry custard, crisp sourness, and a mild jam texture enrich the palate. The dry finish reinforces a balanced approach that should only get better with time. There may be a handful of better 3F beers in the world but this is one of those rare beers that deserves the price tag.

Bottle 2014, courtesy of Richythevillan for his 5000th beer! Poured a rich reddish dark amber with a broken white head. The aroma is acid sour, light vinegar. The flavour is moderate sour with a crisp light acid raspberry citrus palate. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Takes the lining off the back of your throat but in the nicest possible way.
