3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze
Espuma blanquecina que permanece, color anaranjado con tonos dorados turbio y sin apreciarse apenas burbujas brotando, aroma intenso a cítricos ácidos, sabor amargo intenso recordando un poco al sabor de la sidra (entre limón y manzana)

Bottle @home. Pours orange, like a flame, white head. Nose is orange, lemons, horse urine (hello my old friend), hay and big funk. Taste was sweeter than expected, still funky, tart, orange.

Smooth, detailed, and sweet, the sour notes were maintained so well over all of the combined years.

3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze
Bottled Oct 2013. Pours golden with small dissipating white head. Aroma is acidity, funk, hay & green apple skins. More of the same on the taste. Apples, bretty funk, wood, lemon with lots of acidity. Light body, bone dry finish. Not much carb. The gold standard for geuze? A proper sipper, my insides are squealing

A great sour beer, really tart with an apple like taste. Quite a dry finish and a complex palate. Definitely one to sip and enjoy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze Golden Blend
375ml bottle at Alex’s (thx, man!) with Jamey. Bottled on 2011-02-17. Pours a hazy golden with a weak white head. Aroma is very fruity and slightly earthy. Taste is similar with funky notes. Quite tart. Very nice.

2014 bottle. The beer is a hazy red with a small pink head of foam. Not much head retention. The beer is vinous, vinegar, and strong berry notes. Sour throughout. Some doughy aspects, but primarily sour and acidic. Medium body and higher carbonation.

Bottle at Mikk Bar SF. Pours cloudy gold with a nice white head and a marvelous fruity aroma. There is a pleasantly sour light fruit flavor with a tart finish. Nicely blended to produce a quintessential lambic aura.

W aromacie dużo orzechów włoskich i skórzanego paska, ogólnie przyjemnie. W smaku natomiast już więcej niż przyjemnie. Znowu dużo skórzanego paska, mocno dojrzały orzech włoski, jest też pestka z winogrona. Wszystko na najwyższym poziomie intensywności, cudowny lambik.

W aromacie dominuje skórzany pasek i skórka winogrona. W smaku pestka winogrona i niedojrzały orzech włoski i jego mleko. Idealnie zbalansowane, wręcz grzeczne, ale przy tym dosyć mocno kwaśne.

3 Fonteinen Intense Red Oude Kriek
Bought @Hopduvel Gent. Bottle 28/04/2016 Very intense indeed. Very fruity aroma. Very nice deep red colour with dark pink head which dissapears immediately. Taste is massive Kriek. Very profound taste. Sour, slightly puckering. Krieken all over the place, but still you taste the nice lambiek. Very well balanced. Palate is very complex, first the effect of the krieken which evolves in a nice lambiek aftertaste. Dry finish.

Beersel Blond
Another one I had years ago but apparently forgot to take notes of - so I purchased a bottle from Dranken De Moor in Haasdonk for mere rating purposes. Common Belgian blonde made for 3 Fonteinen at ’Proef’brouwerij. Thickly ’papery’ lacing, egg-white, regular, thick and frothy, very stable head over a lightly hazy, warm ’old gold’ coloured beer with slightly orange hue, misty and deeper peachy with sediment. Aroma of ripe banana (isoamylacetate - but not so much the bubblegum side of it), pear, sugarloaf, pineapple slices, powder sugar, old ginger powder, fresh camomile flowers, honey, white bread, hints of candied lemon, mandarin, cake, dry earth, sweetclover, apple juice. Crisp, fruity onset, lots of the banana ester, pineapple, pear, red apple, peach, sweet with thin sourish edges, the latter accentuated by lively carbonation, but not overcarbonated for this particular style, which is originally inspired by pale lager and as a consequence always tends to be quite effervescent; supple, bit soapy, smooth mouthfeel. Nice ’white’ bready malt sweet middle with honeyish sugar residue on top, the banana lingering all the way through, something caramelly in the middle as well; finishes drier, with some subtly onsetting, retronasal oxidation (clearly an older bottle) and floral, mildly herbal hoppiness, providing some earthy and very lightly spicy bitterness in the back of the mouth. Your ordinary Belgian blonde, sweet and ridden with banana ester, but ’honest’ and technically well-executed without any flaws. I can imagine beer geeks being disappointed by this after seeing the association with one of the finest lambic producers in the world, but clearly this beer is intended to help fund exactly that, by being accessible to a large audience accustomed to this type of quenching, straightforward, ’easy’ beers and within that context, this is far from the worst.

From bottle (12/03/2014: 6%) in Belgian ale glass. Pours amber with billowing head and woody aroma mixed with citrus and rubber. Forward grapefruit tartness followed by earthy/woody notes that become more pronounced as it warms.

From a shared bomber at a party. Aroma is dry funk. Flavor is VERY funky with a good but not overwhelming dose of sourness as well as a good dry backbone and some sweet wheat. Somewhat light bodied. Good beer.

3 Fonteinen Intense Red Oude Kriek
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/28/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 1-2 finger fairly foamy and fluffy pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart/tangy cherries, cherry pits, almond, fruit skin, raspberry, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, toasted oak, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with light notes of leathery/musty funk, pepper, red wine vinegar, vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of cherries, fruity/earthy/funky yeast, oak barrel, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/tangy cherries, cherry pits, almond, fruit skin, raspberry, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, toasted oak, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with light notes of leathery/musty funk, pepper, red wine vinegar, vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness; with light fruit tang and yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy cherries, cherry pits, almond, fruit skin, raspberry, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, toasted oak, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light funk/vinegar, pepper, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of cherries, fruity/earthy/funky yeast, oak barrel, and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tartness, spiciness, and fruit tang. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, fairly crisp/acidic, and lightly tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a fantastic Kriek lambic! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of cherries, fruity/earthy/funky yeast, oak barrel, and bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly acidic/tannic/drying finish. More of a balanced Kriek, but still has a lot of nice wild complexity and oak presence; with huge amounts of cherry fruit character. A highly enjoyable offering.

750ml bottled 2011,sampled 2017. Unclear golden orange body with a fine off-white head. Delicate aroma, smooth funky with distinct cellar notes and hint of acidic lemon. Flavor is very nice and complex, well balanced smooth funky, farmhouse, wood, cellar, lemon acidic and feels a bit bitterer than the regular oude geuze towards the end. Perfect body and long lasting aftertaste. So nice, so complex, so well matured, it’s very close to perfect.
