ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Funky Drie Fonteinen nose, very nice. Taste is a bit thin, good funk, but not much else besides some unfermented sugars. Very little carbonation, thin finish.

nimbleprop (7931) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 10, 2010
375ml split sampled at the DC Local Tasting. Pours a very cloudy, bright yellow with a cloudy white head. Aroma is grass, brett, lemons, woodsy. Flavor is really nice, sweet, tart, lemons, grass, candy. No alcohol presence at all. Really smooth, lightly tart finish. Very nice.

Bottle shared by Alex (MasterSki). 375ml bottle into Bells tulip/snifter. A - Woah, this one is interesting. Looks like Mellow Yellow with a hazy filmy residue on top. Little bubbles here and there. Not much to look at here. Oh well, lets move on... S - Funkity funk funk, subtle sweetness, farmers hay. I can pick out both types of beer in this one very easily, which is cool. I cant say Ive ever had a similar nose on anything else Ive ever sampled. T - Not near as sour as the nose. A mix of wheat, slight funk, herbal bitter finish. Def something that wont ever be replicated by another brewery, very unique. M - Light bodied, slight carbonation, dry finish. D - Not quite sure what to think of this one. Def a unique experience and really glad I was able to try it. Interesting, to say the least. Would I try another bottle? Sure. Tonight? Uh, no.

Geuzelambix (243) - Kbenhavn, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2010
I was genuienly dissapointed by this beer. The intention is good and I have had good ones elsewhere (de la senne), but this was too flat and had a lurking taste of something unpleasant. The two beers didnt bled too well and created two very different glasses (even with the yeast divided evenly). Turn the bottle around a couple of times before pouring. The strong alcohol isnt very appearant. Ill have to try it again to give it another chance I guess...

yespr (42641) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2009
37.5 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small and fine white head. Aroma is orange fruity and classic barnyard, fresh hoppy note too. Crisp citric and dry brett flavoured, light fruity note - towards orange fruity. Crisp hoppy and dry finish with a nice cleansing dry and citric finish.

Bontus (788) - Flanders, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2009
Bottle, Alvinne proefzolder. Almost carbonation free, pours straw yellow, no head. Aromas: peaches, apricots, lemonbiscuits, quite tart. Very subtle wethorse aroma. Sour flavors but well balanced thanks to a malty backbone. Good beer, but not better than unblended 3 fonteinen imo.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2009
(Bottled, 2007 vintage, 10.5% ABV) Hazy golden with a very small head. Dryish, tart and fruity apricot and strawberry aroma. Flavor is tart, dryish, yeasty and cellary, pale-grainy-malty and very fruity with apricot and some green apple sourness. Medium-bodied, slightly fizzy-carbonated, hides the ABV completely. A really refreshing, light but strong ale with pleasantly tart and fruity, white-vinous character from the lambic. Reminds me of the very good Lind Gewrztraminer Trocken Sptlese white wine - only this is even more complex. Good stuff!

deflagro (106) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2009
Yellow, cloudy liquid with a small head. Smell almost like a lambic; sour and musty with notes of apple peel. Taste has notes of yeast, orange peel and some bitterness like a tripel, but also a distinct sourness with musty notes of apples like a lambic. Aftertaste is quite weird with a yeasty bitterness combined with the sourness from the lambic. Interesting, but not completely successfull blend.

xpimptastikx (103) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Finally found a bottle of this on my Belgium trip at the Alvinne bottle shop. 2007 A - Pours a slight hazy golden color with 1/2" white head that recedes to leave a web, then hardly any carbonation at all. S - Funk, bready yeastiness, and sweetness from the blonde it was blended with. T - It gets pretty interesting here. Starts with sour and vinegar that evolves into a dry sweet taste that stays with you for a second. Definitely not like any other beer Ive had before. It gets a lot better as it reaches room temperature as well. M/D - What an awesome blended beer. Incredably drinkable for a 10.5abv "sour", much more than a bottle of Vin De Cereale. The lambic blends perfectly with the blond creating something that I wish I bought more of!

Botella, thanks to Skinnyviking. Hzy goldenish colour. Sweet pleasant mild fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet and fruity with a pleasant mild sourness and bit of spice.
