Bright acidity, mellow fruity grapes and pleasant funk. Lemon, wild strawberry and horse blanket. Medium high acidity. Very nice even though I think it’ll be even better in 2-3 years and a perfect match to cut the flavours of the rich quiche.

Sampled in a set of Druivenlambiek Muscat Bleu (°54 , °55, °56 ) and Druif Muscat Bleu (°47) .
This one contains 38.1% Grapes.
Pours a clear, dark reddish amber. Scent is very raw, funky, intense, tad sweaty, wood. Looks more carbed than the other ones (due to this being Druif rather than druivenlambiek,, so makes sence) . Taste is indeed more robustly carbed, making the lambic more pronounced, though the grape intensity is higher - compared to DL MB °56 . Love the body / balance in here, but it looses perhaps a bit of the expressiveness the DL MB 56 possessed, and -- as I'd later learn - so did the others.

Deep red with a decent white head. Petroleum notes and red fruit. Light red fruit and not really much else. None of the greatness that is 3F, a bit of a let down. Simple red fruit and just a touch of funk.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Slightly hazy pale purple, brief pink head. Tart citric notes with barnyard and grape skin. Mildly citric with medium body and rounded, spritzy mouthfeel. Grass and barnyard, tart grapes. Mild grape skin bitterness. Elegant, but not lifting to stellar levels.

One of 3 Fonteinen’s fruit lambics of last year, a grape lambic made with Muscat grapes, shared at a bottle share at tderoeck’s place. Moussy, off-white, initially medium thick but quickly dissolving head on a misty purple-hued deep fuchsia-red beer. Aroma of sour grapes more than sweet Muscat grapes, red wine vinegar even, cherry skins, ultra-dry rosé wine, white yoghurt, lemon juice, stale sweat, wood sorrel, wild berries, sumac, rosehip, green garden weeds, wet wood. Tart onset, astringent sour grapes and sour berries (redcurrant), crisp lemony edges, minerally undertones; supple wheaty and bready core underlying a lot of juicy grape tartness offering some vaguely softening fleshiness towards the end too, but generally remaining sour much more than sweet, with grape skin and seed tannins as well as woodiness accentuating the dryness. The sheer volume of the grapes here and the juiciness this brings, keeps things interesting till the last drop, especially when light funky notes set in from the Brett playing around with the grapes, resulting in effects of grass silage, wet leather, sweat and green plant leaves. Complex as any top notch fruit lambic should be, clearly more tart and less ‘vinous’ or wine-like than the Dornfelder that came out almost simultaneously, with a somehow much more pronounced lambic effect. I wonder how this ages – but I doubt if I ever come across another bottle again… --- Beer merged from original tick of Druif Muscat Bleu on 23 Sep 2021 at 13:01

Little cloudy deep ruby red to purple beer, small creamy pink head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: nice, good brett character, some red wine notes, fruity. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lovely, some cherries, tannins, fruity, lovely, soft acidity, pretty bitter, dry, bit soapy. Aftertaste: more tannins, dry, nice acidity, red wine notes. Decent one!

Pale pink head with beautiful deep cardinal red, nearly clear beer. Shoepolish, red fruit, I putteke /I, barnyard. Vinous flavours with serious acidity, red (sour) fruit, dark grapes. Mush from fruit and herbs, velvety mixed with most. Mild acidburn and -thinning. Almost undercarbonated, still refreshing. The nose is lacking - for 3 Fonteinen. Rest is great.
