Rask0lnikov (2139) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 22, 2018
750ml bottle. 2008 vintage. Pours dark golden yellow colour. Medium size white head. Barnyard, caramel, nougat, grass, earthy notes, slight acidity in the aroma. Acidic and grassy beginning. Woody and leathery notes in the middle. Tart, grassy and funky notes in the end. Crisp finish. Caramelly, bit nougaty, mildly acidic aftertaste. Really well balanced, complex and amazing geuze. It has this caramelly and nougaty undertone which gives it deepness of the port, but at the same time it is light as well. Amazing.

Juks (2476) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 22, 2018

Aroma is nutty, cheesy, woody, bit caramelly, tart. Taste is acidic, apples, gooseberry, berry skins, caramelly. Woody, acidic aftertaste. Medium body, bit sharp carbonation. Very complex and interesting, really nice.

Svartvit (1565) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2018
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2018 Backlog from BUMBa. Vintage 2014. Pours a hazy golden orange with a quickly fainting white head. Sweet stonefruit character, peaches, lemon zest, dry hay, medium funk, oak, nutty. Beautiful. 9-4-9-4-19: 4.5 31/08/2018 Vintage 2008. Thanks to Jeroen for sharing. Pours a hazy golden orange with a big white head. So much live left in this beer after 10 years. Time has given so much depth to the funk, barnyard, hay, oak, almonds, still zome citrus rind, lemon zest and stonefruit, wet leaves, peppery on the finish. The whole thing is so well-rounded and smooth on the palate. This seems to only get better with time. Makes me curious as to what the older vintages are like. 10-4-9-5-19: 4.7

PowY (1789) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUL 15, 2018
375 ml bottle at Werckmeisters place, vintage 2005 shared by Werckmeister, many thanks! Pours a clear light amber with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of mild funk with quiet some wood, leather, hay, some mold and green apples - very nice smell. Medium body with a soft carbonation, a light sourness and a light to medium tartness. The flavor starts with green apples, oak, leather, hints of vinegar followed by wood and light sherry notes. Finishes very dry with a long lasting but not unpleasant fruity tartness, berry pits and lots of wood. Overall extremely balanced and smooth but still with intense flavors which blend together really nice - good complexity.

Saeglopur (2990) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 14, 2018
375 ml bottle, vintage 2005. Shared by Werckmeister, many thanks!
Amber-brown, slightly hazy body, with a medium, fluffy, yellowish head.
Lovely, elegant aroma of wood, distinct green apples, moderate pears, some lovely sweet, chewy fruits.
Tastes quite similar, with some more basement, more pears.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a very moderate carbonation.
Finishes round, smooth, wooden, quite dry, a bit sweet, fruity, with apples, pears, .

Delicious. I really love the nose, round, fruity, even quite sweet and most of all very elegant. Taste is more on the dry side, while very balanced to drink. Outstanding, among my favourite 3Fs so far.

Score: 9 / 4 / 8 / 4 / 17

A 375ml corked and caged but unlabelled bottle at 3 Fonteinen lambik-O-droom. 2010 vintage, bottled on 8th March 2010. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass. It was a hazy dark orange colour with a just under two finger puffy white head that had good retention and left some nice sticky lacing. Aromas of funk, barnyard, hay, earthy, citrusy lemon, oak with hints of herbal and green apple. Tastes tart, funky, hay, lemon, grapefruit rind, wet oak and hints of green apple. Smooth, light to medium bodied with low carbonation. Overall, just wonderful, with great aromas and taste continuing after 8 years in the bottle.
