This is an interesting beer. I can't fully describe it. The nose is super funky the taste is tart, prickly, and weird. Interesting beer and glad I got to try it. One of a kind for sure.

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.
