Medium carbonation, medium bodied.

Karyots (23) - BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2014
Wheatish yellow in color. No head. Fantastic balance between a 3 Fontein and a strong blond. Result is that you can taste both at the same time without any one overpowering (not very sour, not very hoppy). A very different taste experience for sure.

ElManana (2011) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2014
Pours pale yellow with no head. Aroma is sour 3 fonteinen geuze, really dominating. Taste is very, very balanced. The sour of the gueuze lacks a little bit bit its still very very good.

Hanoi (895) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle. 2012. Nose is is wet oak, slight barnyard, a touch of sour leading to light toffee. Cheese and very faint white chocolate . Taste vinegar, and vinous notes lead, before the emergence of the blond giving beer, giving straw, dry dusty farmyard yeast and the finish, a flash of sour green apples then is richly oak, white grape and a dry sour. The mouthfeel is not quite right, a little watery. The beer is a strange mix, which works surprisingly well, with the tastes coming in pleasing waves rather than blending or clashing.

tommann (3489) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014
375ml bottle, 2012 at 10.6%. Pours lemon gold with a medium head. Aroma is sour cheese, sharp lemon and a little ash. Taste has light lemon and straw to start. Funky cheese finish. Lemon aftertaste. Deceptively drinkable.

RexTalionis (3609) - FINLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle. Golden in color, white head. Lemon, summer meadow, barnyard and damp wooden notes in aroma. Stable leather, floral notes and lemony juicyness in taste. Later on some notes of hay and bit of sour fruityness appears, apples and fruity tartness too. No sign of the alcohol here, instead its actually quite refreshing. Funky and slightly sweet finish.

Vignale (3500) - Malm, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2014
2012 Bottle from Etre Gourmet. How on earth can a blonde and a lambic end up at 11% abv?? Very little lambic or very strong blond? How ever.....cloudy deep golden with a small head. Very much like a lambic on the nose, tart, funky, barnhouse, horse blankett, lemon, fresh wood but also a little toffee.Bigger body, more sweetness and herbal bitterness than a lambic, but otherwise simular tastes but not as funky as the nose promised. Great!

Alengrin (4814) - BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2014
Versnijbier of Loterbol Blond with 3 Fonteinen Lambic, a reference to an old Brabant tradition. Off-white, coarse head, orangey bronze colour. Malty, bready flavours are mixed with the tartness of the lambic, citrussy, hay, sherry, some woodiness in the finish, which otherwise ends in a dry sourishness. Quite interesting.
