Bottled. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of lemon, funk, barnyard and spicy notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up being dry and tart. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Geuze. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 mR_fr0g (13225) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2017

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 SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 2, 2016

Clear copper body shows a smidgeon of head with low retention.
Strong acetic notes in the nose give hints of acetone, but it’s 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.
Bottle. Orange pour with white head. Very funky, leather, woody, fruity aromas. Flavors are funky, oak, fruit, tart and sweet tones. jtclockwork (17101) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 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. I’m excited to see where this one goes. Ludvig (134) - 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 it’s what makes it so special.
