GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2010
From DC Local tasting. Courtesy of Travlr. This beer is excellent. Pours a glowing neon yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is funky geuze with lots of tart lemons, limes. Taste is awesome: the geuze and tripel blend is such a good idea. There is a huge play of flavors on the palate from the tart lambic and the sweet candi sugar from the tripel. Excellent. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 10, 2010
375ml bottle, thanks Travir. Cloudy straw body topped by minimal straw head. Aroma is medium sweet, lemon sour, some yeast, funk, faint alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet, lemon, some yeast, candi sugar, light alcohol. Minimal carbonation, medium body, light acidity, alcohol well contained. 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 (8297) - 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. Sean9689 (285) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle shared by Alex (MasterSki). 375ml bottle into Bellís 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 canít say Iíve ever had a similar nose on anything else Iíve ever sampled.
T - Not near as sour as the nose. A mix of wheat, slight funk, herbal bitter finish. Def something that wonít 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.

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 didnít 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 isnít very appearant. Iíll have to try it again to give it another chance I guess... yespr (44810) - 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.

Bottle, Alvinne proefzolder. Almost carbonation free, pours straw yellow, no head. Aromaís: 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 (4710) - 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 GewŁrztraminer Trocken Spštlese 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.
