750 ml bottle at Akkurat, bottled Feb. 14 2007, poured into a gueuze glass. Synthetic cork.

A- Pours a hazy golden orange color with a white head that recedes to a collar.

S- Loads of earthiness, very damp and musty, mushroom and honey. Moderate tartness with some lemon. Smells a lot like some of my other favorites from 3F.

T- Moderate to high acidity, nice mix of lactic with a bit of acetic. Earthy, almost bitter funkiness, some oak. As it warms some mild plastic/rubber flavors start to emerge, not enough to ruin the beer but enough to be a bit annoying, I've heard this is a product of the synthetic corks briefly used during this period.

M- Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth and dry on the finish.

O- Another really awesome beer from 3F, it's too bad about the rubberiness, but this was still very enjoyable.

bottled 2/14/07

poured into a fonteinen stemmed glass

pour was dark murky golden yellow. light to moderate head, maybe a 1/4 an inch. small pop from cork, was not expecting a gusher.

sour, tart, and oak. old stale sour apple, some musty basement. light funk, with maybe a hint of cheese.

what really sets me off on this is the sweetness. sweeter than most fonteinens i have had. really compliments the fairly dank oak and musty flavors. some tartness but not as sour as one a little pucker. light lemon, some faint apple. overall, stunning.

light, dry, and light puckering. moderate carbonation.

overall, near perfect
