Lots of diacetyl, could have just been an off batch.

On draft at 3 Fonteinen during my visit to Belgium last month.

The beer is copper to amber in color and mildly hazy with virtually no head. The aroma is sweet and sugary, with some malt, yeast, and lambic scents lingering in the background. Smells true to style. Sugary and sweet, I couldn't see having more than one in a session. Light and refreshing, with some fruity malt character. hints of tartness and yeast. It's true, I am not a huge fan of the style (I much prefer traditional lambic), but this is well done for what it is. Certainly worth a try if you have the opportunity.

On draft - served in a small 3F glass

Enjoyed at the Drie Fonteinen Restaurant in Beersel (early June 2012).

A: Light golden hay. Half (white) fingernail head.

S: Smells of sweet candied brown sugar, orange/lemon zest, and must.

T: A fair amount of apple and citrus fruit with touch of funk. Candied brown sugar and caramel. Decent, but a bit too sweet for me.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

O: A decent beer (and fun to try), but again a bit too sweet for my liking.

On cask at the Drie Fonteinen Lambic Room during last week's Belgium trip. Reviewed from notes.

Served in a small Drie Fonteinen stange glass.

Poured a slightly-hazed medium orange color with a bit of a rust-colored tint. No head or lacing.

The smell was pretty funky with quite a bit of must. Some citrus there as well. Certainly seemed like a Drie Fonteinen product from the start with some nice must and earth to go along with a bit of sweetness.

Mouthfeel was medium with just a hint of carbonation. Light bit of funk and faint acidity.

Very enjoyable. I liked this one quite a bit more than the Cantillon Faro we had later on, though of course each one varied from batch to batch throughout the trip.

A: incredible head, rocky, dense, cloudy rosey color
S: sweet, effervescent, but not too sweet, earthy
T: great tart-sweet lambic but nice balance of sourness
M: very good beer, great taste
O: very, very good beer
