Amber with little white head. Aroma is cherry pips, champagne, roasted citrus. Taste is balanced harsh bitterness and fruity sourness. Very drinkable and incredibly complex. Cool stuff. jfb (6975) - GERMANY - AUG 31, 2017
(bottle) very hazy bright amber colour with a bubbly light-beige head. aroma of bretty funk and vanilla, with a light touch of caramelized wheat, some yeast, acetone, dill and apple vinegar. flavour is more mellow, with lots of caramel and vanilla, a hint of lemon juice, walnuts, black bread crusts and pears in the rather bitter earthy finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with lively carbonation. a bit past its prime. jonas (8277) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2017 Bottle from the cellar, good condition. Deep dark golden, golden foam. Light spongy, fennel, wet leather, a hint tar. Dry, mellow, sparkly. Fermented grilled lemons, raspberries, a bit sponge, rubber, rural notes, rubber seal and iodine retronasal. Given the age quite wonderful.
Old rating from RBESG 2008, grand tasting: 9 3 9 4 18 Cloudy yellow, creamyb head. Sour/citric.Citrus, milk acid wood. Beautiful balance. Mellow bubbly. Mildew retronasal. Beautiful. SinH4 (6554) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2017 Bottle, rating #5000, many thanks jonas! Hazy orange color with super fluffy white head. Aroma is funky lemon, earthy, just a touch of burnt bread. Taste is earthy, lemony, with again only a touch of the 3 Fonteinen-typical burnt bread, apple funk, a tiny note of vinegar and leather. Lively carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Amazing stuff, still after all these years, although I'm pretty sure it would have been better 2-3 years ago. Dzagoda (40) - POLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Znakomite, pełne piwo w którym odnajdziemy mnóstwo kwaśno-słodkich smaków z długim finiszem w oprawie stajenno/ziołowej. Świetne.

Basement funk awesome. Aroma is unique and amazing. So much musty basement. Bottle is even musty looking. Hazy Orange still looking. Hella basement flavors tangy bone dry lingering funky basement. Carb is there and AIDS in the drying aspect. Tastes rare and old. Thanks bvc. j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2015

Dark golden pour. Menthol and fruit snacks in the nose, must. Taste is tart lemon, more citrus, leather, caramel. Exceeded my expectations, especially considering its age. markextrae (4579) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2015
