Belgianloner (40) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle from 5/03/2015. AROMA: Perfectly ripened tropical fruits such as mango, pineapple and grapefruit. Slight oak. APPEARANCE: Some carbonation, small head going to slight ring, surprisingly lively, oily with some lacing. TASTE: Similar to smell, tropical fruits, green apples, touch of oak. PALATE: Fairly sour, some tannins, longlasting, punchy, complex. OVERALL: Quite surprised by the amount of carbonation in this "lazy " blend but I really enjoyed it. Its good to try these things but I think they need to be drunk freshly because they will slowly carbonate and thus it will defeat the purpose.

ciocanelu (1728) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 15, 2016
Clear golden color with no head. Aroma has sweet malt and honey, some farmhouse funk and lemon notes. Taste starts malty but you also get immediately hit with lambic sourness. Finish is quite bitter and dry. Light, dry body with low carbonation. Quite good but not one of the best from 3 Fonteinen.

Lore (2373) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 10, 2016
hazy golden to orange colour, miniml off-white head, which disappears promptly; aroma of wine cellar, dry white wine, lemony notes, some sour green apple, tart, acetone notes, and leather; taste is the same; I would not say that it is not good, but Im not really impressed...

From notes. Enjoyed at a little get together at Dougs house on June 08 with Travis and Chris also in attendance. 375 mL bottle shared by Travis. Thanks dude! The pour is a darker orangey gold color with a decent white head that falls down to a collar, leaving no lace behind. The aroma is pretty bland for what I was hoping for. There is a lot of woodiness to this. The sour funk is definitely there, and there is some hints of tart fruit skins, but its really acidic. The sour really doesnt pop like I was hoping. The flavors are relatively lax as well. There is a decent vinegar portion in front of the light fruit skins, but its a little messy. The mouth feel is crisp, but oily. There is a soft carbonation to this that lets it feel syrupy in the mouth. It has a nice balance with it, but for the most part, Im just not digging it. The aftertaste is lightly acidic and lingeringly oaky. Im not too sure what to think of this one.

minutemat (4789) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2016
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.
