Bottle shared at Ratebeer awards show. 30/01/2016. Huge thanks to b3shine!. An onon skin / onion coloured pour with a small off white head. Aroma i sbig funk, horsey, dung wiith some orange rind. Flavour is composed of tangy citrus, onion, crisp tart lemon, complex sourness, horsey musty funk, mouldy wood. Palate is spritzy sourness, highish carbonation. Good. A genuine treat to get to try this.

teorn88 (7482) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle shared at DHVL. It pours a hazed golden color with a large white head. Aroma is tart acidic with plenty notes of lemon juice, Greek yoghurt, minerals, light funky basement, oak. Taste is also acidic with more green apples, lemon juice, lactic acid, some funk and herbal spicy notes, basement, horse blanket. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very good but far inferior to the Millennium (benchmark gueuze for me) and other 3F expressions

ClarkVV (6218) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2016
750 mL bottle, drunk 8/13/16.
Clear copper body shows a smidgeon of head with low retention.
Strong acetic notes in the nose give hints of acetone, but its mostly passing. Highly fruity, suggesting raspberry and apple esters alongside buttery (oak?). No green apple, thankfully, but this still comes off a bit sharp and out-of-balance due to the high proportion of acetic acid here. Could just be the competition at this tasting is so intensely high. No alcohol noted.
In the mouth it fares better. Slightly sweet but with earthy and light vegetal notes of musty, intense cellar funk. A bit flabby, without the creamy, ultra-concentrated carbonation. Again, very strong on the acetic character with lots of acidburn on the end and a very yogurty, cheese rind-like lactic character that puckers the mouth. Very juicy, richly sour stuff.

GrumpyOldTroll (61) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2016
This beer has improved dramatically since it first came out in 2013. It has a hazy gold color with a dusty and citrusy taste. It is far more balanced and softer now than it was a few years ago. Im excited to see where this one goes.

Ludvig (137) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2016
This beer was not what I expected after hearing a few people talk about it. The aromas is really the two breweries combined, you got a soft vanilla aroma from Drie Fontainen and some not as calm things from the cantillon lambic. Really interesting, I thought that the beer wold have come together more after this much time. But I guess that its what makes it so special.

brokensail (16332) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Big time thanks to Beau for sharing this. Hazed orange beer with a white head. This beer is pretty nice but the acidity is definitely on the heavy side. A whole lot of lemon juice and green apple. Theres some cobweb funk, yogurt, and musty oak. Nice fruit character of peach, kiwi, green apple, and pear. Maybe just a hint of sweetness to it and even a touch of bitter fruit skin. Certainly a solid beer, but not the most amazing thing Ive had.

phaleslu (9800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2016
750 ml bottle shared by b3shine at the RB Best Awards - thanks again, Beau! Nice surprise. Pours a hazy pale gold with a small white head. Has a really sour lemony, oaky, herbal flavor, with some minerals and straw, as well. The aroma is sawdust, herbs, pepper, pear, grains, and lime. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a really sour, somewhat dry and barely spritzy mouthfeel. Excellent gueuze.
