The thing about this beer is that it is impressive in its composition and balance. What is surprising is that you get a lot of nut like flavor in the aftertaste. There is a strong barrel driven profile but the sourness is really light. It is an impressive beer but not that great as I hoped it would be. pjotrapostou (370) - POLAND - NOV 10, 2017
Mocno dzikie, z nietypowym orzechowym posmakiem po cherry. Delikatne, kwasnosc nieco niższa niż w innych gueuze 3 Fonteinen. Wspaniale smakuje podane w Lambik-O-Droom z kieliszkiem cherry Oloroso i PX. Spodziewałem się intensywniejszego smaku, ale bardzo ciekawe i unikalne. mariuspoenari (2999) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2017
2014 vintage, poured into a decanter, at the Lambik-o-droom. Semi-hazy amber pour with a thin, velvety off-white head. Easily identifiable 3 Fonteinen lambic funk, green apples, mineral notes, light fruit oxidation, a bit of grapefruit, sherry (or I should say Oloroso), very light caramel, oak, light vanilla. Very interesting to have side-by-side with Oloroso and PX. Compared to batch 2 - Solera, this one is drier, much more funk-forward and a bit more oaky, as well. Very similar to the Armand & Gaston. Absolutely delicious, I think I prefer this just a bit more to the second batch, though it migh just be because of its age. witt (96) - Elsinore, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2017
Pours hazy amber with small white head. 90 (879) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2017
Aroma has so much funk, hay, barnyard, dry cellar, lemon tart.
Taste is lemon tart, hay, grass, not as much funk as the aroma, hops, sherry sweetness, extremely very well balanced. Best lambic I've ever had.

Served with 2 sherries, 20 year old FX and a 30 year old Oloroso.
Aroma is very well balanced. Great acidity with old wood tones, wavering sherry. Taste is funkier than aroma. Soft old oak, hay, mildly sourness. Palate is tad puckering. Sherry peeps in finish, great blend of all components. Some soft vinegar there. Awesome.
Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow colour, white creamy foam. Very nice and complex geuze. Light sweet, grassy, crispy, woody and vinous. Very well balanced and complex but not the best in the 3F series. If I compare this with the new Boon Vat series, I like them more. But maybe I had too high expectations of this beer. sokuzs1 (1577) - POLAND - AUG 20, 2017
