Finally got up the courage to bust open my bottle at a tasting today and was definitely rewarded. Big thanks to Papsoe for trading me this gem. Just a phenomenal beer, with a spectacular balance of fruit and sourness, an absolutely delicious beer that was really unfair to everything I tasted after it.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2011 (Bottle, thanks mybestfriend) Pours beautiful glowing red with some orange hints. Sand coloured to pale pink head. The aroma holds fresh, lively raspberries up front, but there is also some notes of cherries in the background. Undertones of cinnamon, bitter almonds, mouldy basement, smoke/smoked sausage-like phenols and some Tai food - coconut milk, ginger and lime. The brett is very subtle; there is only a hint of horse blanket. Light wheat. The flavour is light sweet/dry and medium heavily acidic. More citrus than raspberries and cherries. Good balance between lacto and barnyard-ish brett. The mouthfeel is fresh and tart with a light tannin feel to it. Citrus and raspberries lingers. Medium bodied. Fantastic and complex yet very drinkable.

pours blood red with no head. aroma bursts with tart cherries, raspberries, earthy, vinegar. drinks with tons of juicy tart cherries with pit and sweet raspberries. tartness peeks through the whole drink with just enough pucker to make you want more and more. finishes sweet with tons of fruits and berries coating the palate. just amazing.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Bottle shared by Sparky27. Thanks E! Hazy maroon pour with a small head. Another great 3F lambic. Loaded with cherry, funk, vinegar and light malt. Very good stuff!

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2010 Bottle at RBWG, courtesy Rciesla. pours reddish hue with sharp lacing and white head. nose is big on tart fruit, with a pretty heavy dose of rubber, but overall balanced by the big fruity touch. flavor has more assertive fruit punch than the nose, with a very welcoming tart factor over everything. body is smooth and healthy, very easy drinking.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2010 750mL bottle at Monk’s Cafe. Pale, deep cloudy pink with not too much head. Smells incredible, like fresh picked raspberries with minor acidity and sweetness, very well balanced nose. Tastes just like raspberries at first, finishing with a nice balance of funk and acidity, it’s gentle and pleasant.

Beer5000 (6677) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2010
750 ml bottle. Almost clear, reddish body with a big, pink head. Aroma is acidic with a light cellar note. Flavor is refreshing light cherry and other red berries, moderate acidic and light funky! Very nice and quaffable, almost a bit to average in accordance with expectations from 3 fonteinen. Balanced and very nice anyway.

JackT (71) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Bottle at Max’s. Pours pinkish red. The aroma is raspberry and olive. The flavor is tart and sour with again raspberry and olive. This is one of the most incredible beers I’ve ever had.
