UPDATED: DEC 10, 2012 Spettacolare combinazione di 3 lambic di tre annate successive, la drie fonteinen si conferma Re dei llambic assemblati! Maddog (527) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Had on draft at the Dilly Deli. Bottled in Feb. of 2006. Thanks for the suggestion, Peanut! May be my beer of the year in 2009. Light amber in color, cloudy with an aroma of serious funk and flavors that are overwelmingly tart with that funky, musty, yeasty flavors of a master Gueuze. This beer was definitely aged in oak, was crisp and refreshing and had flavors that lingered on the palate for a long time! A killer beer. Zarin (202) - ITALY - MAY 6, 2011
Aroma: sour, winey, wood, gastric.
Appearance: cloudy, muddy.
Taste: acid, complex.
overall: 20/20 (bottle) 77ships (9698) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 2010 Vintage 375 ml. bottle @ home purchased from Beer Planet – bottled on 01/12/2010: pours a lovely golden, hazy orange peach colour with surprisingly enough a pretty solid white 3F head, albeit a touch smaller than usual, the smell is just yummy, I am getting lambic here, lots of tart & very fruity lemons, musty hay, barnyard funk, yummy, taste is a bit odd because this isn’t as much flat as on its way to becoming flat, like someone opened a bottle of cola & left it out for an hour or so, it is very comparable to that, sweet, mellow delicious acidity, it is definitely sour & acidic but in an extremely mellow & easy going way, hay, barnyard funk, mellow acidic funk, lactic in its finish, tart lemon, malt sweetness & sweet lemons underneath, tastes exactly as it was meant to be 3F gauze ingedoesjelt or rather on its way to falling asleep, I love this because it is so damn fun & easy to drink, you cannot sip this, I had almost difficulties not chugging this, I need litres of this stuff, very interestinig as well //// Opened one of these again, 75 cl. bottle - 2006 (only) Vintage, better than the small ones which I pretty much always find to be the case. Pure flat goodness with those phenomenal 3F vintage notes, musty soft, earthly, mushroom, fruits, mellow tart,... magnificent /// upped from 4.6 to 4.8 /// Tried another two 2006 bottles. One was bit of a letdown, other one was stellar. Opened a small 2009 (bottled on 10/12/2009) at home, these came out recently, full carb. these days in this one. Huge 3F Funk, bitter barn, hay & some hops in the back. Very nice, a good quality small 3F Geuze bottle basically but yeah that is what you should be getting with a good loerik at this age, I am happy. Love these.

Clear flat sour goodness. Oak and barnyard yeast readiness. Really tart and mildly floral. Finishes super dry and oaky. Excellent!

Złożony aromat: winny, czuć kwiaty, cytrusy. Wygląd: kolor złoty, delikatnie mętny, minimalna piana. Smak: najpierw bardzo kwaśny, następnie delikatnie słodki, pozostawia gorzki posmak. Piwo lekkie, mało wysycone. CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Pours dark straw color. No carbonation. Some prickly mouthfeel from seemed still beer. Definitely to style. Aroma of tart grape skins and oak. Smells like bar wood and cellar winery. Flavor is subtle oak and big tartness. Finishes very dry and brandy wine like. Very nice. puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Bottle from De Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Interesting that after 6 days in Belgium, at all the best stores. the only place I could find this was Holland. Jerre (3319) - Waregem, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2007
Pour has a little bit of head; it certainly wasn’t still, as the description may have you believe. Aroma is the tartest sour hay, funky as hell and very inviting. Taste is similar, with a perfect sourness and brilliant mouthfeel, rich and refreshing going down like no lambic I’ve ever had. Tough to even have some left to rate as my sips are so huge. This stuff is fantastic, and I hope it becomes a staple beer in their lineup. Since the re-opening under Armand, the gueuze simply hasn’t stood up to the old stuff, but this really makes up for that in a huge way. Bring this baby stateside!
Bottle, 37,5 cl; bought @ Willems,
tasted yesterday at home.
Dark golden (little hazy) color, almost no head.
Aroma very sour, malts. Medium body. Taste also good sourness and very nice mouthfeel, refreshing; dry, but really great stuff.

Clear orange amber with little head. Big, dry woody, lemony, barnyard aromas, lots to smell here. Nice acidic burn for the mouthfeel. Searing dry flavors of parched earth, old wood, with acidic lemon; nicely complex. Simply, incredibly, a fucking awesome brew. 3 Fonts out did themselves yet again.
