Beautiful orange-peach pour. Great tart and barnyardy aroma. Aroma of cherry, apricot, melon, and manure. Super tart and astringent.

thirstyrabbit (1791) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 26, 2016
375 ml bottle. Golden body, minimal to no head. Mildly sour aroma with some funky/appley notes. Low carbonation, low tartness. Taste is mildly sour with simple woody notes and some apple peel fruitiness. Drinkable and refreshing but a bit too flat. Somewhat disappointing - does not offer the level of complexity that the high price suggested.

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 (1814) - 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 (2430) - 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...
