PowY (1550) - 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.

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

davidezdonz (767) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 5, 2018
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.

blackmill (29) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2018 Bottled 01/09/14. The beer is attractive, medium-dark amber with a slight head that recedes to nothing. After considerable warming and aerating, the beer finds itself with an aroma of light vanilla, lighter caramel, along with some bread and nuttiness. On the taste, very light vanilla, understated white grape, a super restrained, mature tartness. There's a nutty earthiness that is most similar to fresh, unsalted cashews with light sesame (the grain flavor in toasted dark bread is also similar) but a little more bright. Soft, pleasant carbonation with a medium, oily body. This beer marries sublime drinkability with immense depth and character.

Nische (3087) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2018
2008 bottle at 3F. Pale orange with a white head. Dusty, grassy with lemon zest, very well balanced oaky funk, green apple skin. Super delicate tartness leading to a dusty and citrusy ending. Superb.
