This beers greatest strength is also its greatest weakness: the bursting ripe fruit. It is great in the smell with a bouquet of raspberry, apple, lime, strawberry and peach. The taste it drive the other flavors of hay, mushroom, soil, and wood, but the weakness come in how it continues to dominate into the aftertaste where it promptly turn to vinegar, which is a shame because 3 fonteinen almost never does this. However, you can taste that this was well crafted with a love of good beer, and it shows everywhere else.

Color and complexity on the nose are great, however to Rustic and earthy and not enough part lactic acid for me to really enjoy it. Honestly not worth the hype in my opinion
