Pours a deep, dark red coloration with tiny, fizzy, quickly receding head. Intoxicating aroma dominated by ripe raspberries and sour cherries, with a hint of earthy funk. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by ripe raspberry with a hint of sour cherries and a slight, zesty citrus note in there as well. Some barnyard funk with a certain, earthy, musty, woody quality. Starts out with fruity sweetness that turns quite sour and funky in the aftertaste. With an exceptional balance of fruitiness, sweetness ans sourness, this is proof once again that Drie Fountainen is easily a league above Cantillon.
