2012 version
A: A long lasting bright white head made of tiny bubbles. The head created from the bottle was about 2 fingers tall in the teku and with out much aggression. As the foam slowly subsided it left a coat of foam a finger tall on the full side of the glass with no dry spots. The beer is a medium dark golden color with mild haze (i poured off most of the sediment)

S: Bold funky hay and damp basement brett aroma blends to a fresh lemon-aid tartness. more lemon lime zest with mild grainy character. some spicey phenols come out as the beer warms up. clean and refreshing overall.

T: White wine and green tart grape flavors give way to a grainy pilsner malt flavor. Funky damp basement and oak flavor are mild with light tannic bite that comes off slightly bitter - no real hop flavor. The tartness has more of a mild under-ripe grape flavor with the combination of the phenolic yeast and lacto-bacteria combination upfront. Medium to low sweetness that persists throughout - very different then the aroma would indicate.

M: Mild effervescence from the medium high carbonation. Dry finish with a medium body overall. The alcohol warmth is mild and is very well hidden in this beer - a dangerously easy drinking beer. The carbonic bite at the finish comes off a tad harsh, but is typical in a tripple.. if thats still what it is.

O: An interesting blend of triple and lambic. Love the aroma of the beer but the spicey yeast phenols masked a lot of the flavor of the lambic. maybe the blend wasn’t my preference but it was a good experiment overall

First had a bottle shared at Stone Soup. This review is for a recent tasting of a '12 bottle from my cellar.

Poured into a Drie Fonteinen "3" wine glass. Cloudy golden-orange with a finger of foamy white head that receded to a collar, lacing the glass nicely. Musty aroma, Belgian yeast, spice and banana esters, grassy funk. Similar taste, a good blend of Belgian ale and gueuze, musty and funky, grassy, spicy yeast, light fruit notes--banana, lemon, peach--cobweb, cork; alcohol was decently hidden, but some fusel flavors came out as it warmed. Medium body, medium-low carbonation, easily drinkable. Good overall, but I prefer a straight-up gueuze to this.

Notes from Brugge. Found in a bottleshop in Antwerp. Never heard of it, so I bought it. Blend of Loterbol Blond and Doesjel. Vintage 2012. 375ml C&C bottle into a Jupiter Tumbler.

A-Orange/Yellow haze with real thin white head.

S-Tons of funk and earthy aromas. Light sweet blonde notes mixed with sour gueze notes. Light apple/lemon/green grapes.

T-Light sour mixed with malty blonde. Yeasty and meaty with grassy characteristics.

M-Ample carbonation with lighter body. Lighter body. No hints of its 10.6% ABV.

O-Interesting beer. Smell alone, I would assume it's an intensely sour gueze, but it's very mild.

This was clearly brewed or blended by Drie Fonteinen, even the cork says so, so not sure what the whole story is. Brought this back from Belgium and shared with rudzud. 2012 vintage.

Light fizzy head fades quickly bit the head covering sticks around much for a while, semi clear hazy golden orange yellow colored.

Nose is awesome, pure Drie Fonteinen awesomeness, light Wild funk, great lambic sour like fruit and sour, light grassy lemon aromas, great tartness, good funk.

Taste start with Belgian golden malts, almost like tropical Belgian golden ale, then sourness kicks in, lighter than I expected, but of funk, light acidic phlegm, touch of bready malts. Finish is dry slight bready malt, nice lingering sour lambic funk, light acidity.

Mouth is med bodied, lighter carb, booze hidden well.

Overall great, like a good Belgian single ale blended with a nice lambic , and booze hidden very well.

Shared by JLindros, he bought this while in Belgium, 2012 vintage.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice lightly hazy golden hue with a nice light thin blanket that leaves nice lacing and good retention.

S - Aromas of nice, strong barnyard funk and horse blanket, faint citrus and alcohol.

T - Taste is quite sour, yet nice caramel and funk. Very strange with how much caramel is in this beer. Alcohol is hidden masterfully would never believe this is almost 10%. Delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and lightly carbonated, dry, not boozy.

O - Overall I enjoyed this beer immensely. Presumably it's was rare and hard to get, very nice.
