yespr (47545) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2007
75 cL bottle, thanks to Ungstrup. Pours red with no head. Aroma is sulphorish and raspberry citric aroma with an underlying woody note. Flavour is quite sharp, berry (and beyond raspberry) and strong acidic flavours. This is utterly great.

Ungstrup (38384) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2007
Bottled. An unclear red beer with a lazing pink head. The aroma is acidic with strong notes of raspberries as well as some wood - quite complex. The flavor is also acidic with strong notes of raspberries as well as other fruits.

anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red color with a small pinkish white head. Fruity sour tart raspberry aroma. Sour fruity raspberry flavor with some hints of tart cherries. Fruity slightly tastr finish with a long aftertaste of raspberries. Lovely.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Bottled. Muddy red colour with small head. Aroma is raspberries, sourness and slight mild acidicness. Flavour is really sour and dry raspberries. Already quite promising, so it would be nice to see what a bottle will be in some years.

Travlr (26075) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle dated 14/02/2007, bought at the brewery store in July 2008, consumed on 21/11/2009. Appearance is bright purple, starts clear and progresses to cloudy/chunky due to my poor pouring skills. Soda-pop head that starts vigorously but disappears in seconds to leave no bubbles or lacing. Smell changes every nanosecond. Vinegar, sour cherries, horse, raspberries, dust, and about a million other things - all at the same time. Taste was amazing. Defies words. Sweet and sour all at once. Evident fruit. Must, dust and mold, and sweaty animals. Vinegar, the high end balsamic type from Modena. Mouthfeel is orgasmic. Drinkability is top of the line, not just for lambics, but for all beer. Nothing short of miraculous.

Bottled at RBESG ’07. Deep cloudy red, brief pink head. Fresh aroma of ripe raspberries. Dry and tart with a fruity citric acidity that keep growing. Fruit hides the barnyard, the berry flavour is aoft and mouthfilling and the mouthfeel gently sparkling. Great beer, but I’m not sure it’s one of my favourites from Drie Fonteinen.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Sharp and mouth water inducing sourness. Fruity and with a dry finish. Not bad but can’t drink a lot.
