3 Fonteinen Intense Red Oude Kriek
Bottle shared at King Arthur, Rome. 2012. Some soapy bubbles on intense lighter red wine. Red body. Deeper funk cherry aroma. Dense, clear funky cherry juice. Cherry candy. Some spices, lots of black currant. Intense cherry. Astounding. Delicious and strong.

3 Fonteinen Zenne y Frontera
750mL bottle, decanted for a good 20 minutes first, pours an opaque cloudy dark orange with a small off-white / beige head. Aroma is hugely funky, with a very high mustiness, barnyard funk and leather - not getting any sherry on the nose. Flavour is a different story, with loads of sherry dominating upfront, on top of barnyard funk and leather underneath. The sherry sure makes this a unique offering; it blends wonderfully with the funky Never had anything like this. What a work of art. Excellent.

3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze Golden Blend
金色较浑浊酒体,我这支因为是2011年的所以酒头已经几乎没有了。香气极其惊艳,非常浓郁的青苹果、青梅味和兰比克特有的野生酵母霉香结合的很完美;入口的酸度适中,酒体较薄,沙口中等,不会给口腔太过刺激的感觉。收口很干,余韵悠长,果香在口腔中保持的非常持久。喝过最好的一款oude gueze。

375ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours hazy gold, very thin but persistent ring of head. Aroma is light funk. Taste is quite mellow, oily, low carbonated, almost watery with green apple, funk, sour cooked plums.. lightly sticky mouthfeel but just lacks the crisp tart gueuze element I was expecting.

3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze Golden Blend
Bottle to tulip. Wild funk aroma with slight floral aspects. Hazy golden yellow with moderately large white head that retains well. Taste is magnificent - blend of barnyard which predominates, along with fruity and slight malt character. Beautiful.

Bottle at Heeren van Liedekercke. Pours dark gold with a thick beige head and a magnificent fruit aroma. There is a mellow tart fruit flavor with a huge yeast presence and a dry finish. The lacing sticks to the side of a gueuze glass until the last drop.

Bottle brought by daje, and shared at the Weekend in the woods 2015 - with daje, Simonsen and some other guys
Pours red, super hazy, with almost no head! Smell of raspberries, loads of it! Funk, wood, stable, some malts, complexity, but most of all raspberries. Light to moderate sweet, clean wonderful raspberry flavor, elegant woody elements, oak, tart berry acids, medium sour, complex bretty flavors, just a blast! Really a fantastic fruit lambic!

Bottle at Volo. Black pour, medium beige head. Aroma is roasty, with some sharp grassy notes, and lactic, odd hoppy notes. Kinda hard to put my finger on. No sourness per se....but I’m getting some lambic/lactic funkiness. The finish is lightly bitter, more funk and roast, subtle cocoa, and coffee, with some dark prunes and figs.

3 Fonteinen Intense Red Oude Kriek
At home, 2014 bottle (37.5cl) Pour: Dark, intense red (lives up to the name!), next to no carbonation and thus no head at all. Smell: Sour cherry, candied cherry, sweet, jello Tastes - First: sweet, intense fruit; mids: dark, sour grape; after: tartness, lingering black cherry Verdict: Overall very pleasant taste! The sour grapes play well with the natural sourness of the lambic.

W aromacie wyraźna nuta lambikowa, kwaśność, dzikość, na dodatek nutka palona, czekolady deserowej, co razem daje nuty kwaśnej wiśni. Dominuje jednak wytrawny lekki lambic. Inaczej w smaku, tam czerwona owocowość wiedzie prym, podbita przez leciutktą kawę, czekoladę, kwaskowość i nuty dzikie dopiero na dalszym planie dobrze spajają całość. Nie czuć, że jest takie mocne. Udane!

3 Fonteinen Beersel Lager
This was a clean lager without any off flavors, and that is the biggest thing for me (and most geeks). In other terms there is not much to say. the problem for me was the beer lacked in hops (not the tropical fruits, but the lager hops; the noble hops). Slightly too caramelized for my taste (i like the German lager styles) over all, a lot better then i expected, but still not floating my boat.

Beer tasted at 3 Fonteinen restaurant. Since i love oude lambic this was a hit for me at once! really tasty with some lovely vanilla notes in the back in both mouth and nose. not as funky as many other, a restrained lovely mouth coating sensation that just hit the spot. This rastaurant and beer is a definite visit next time i’m in Brussels!
