Fairly hazy red purple with a lively and big hit short lived pink head. The aroma jumps out at you as soon as you pour and I knew straight away I was in for a treat! Huge raspberry jam with lightly balanced cherry notes and that beautiful 3 Fonteinen cellar funk. Cobwebby, a little dusty, mineral notes fresh tart raspberry and that huge gorgeous raspberry jam. This is a good vintage and it’s taken age well. Flavour is moderate sweet and sour. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Fantastic!

Pours unclear, peachy amber. Foam is small, white , relatively unstable. Scent is full, fruity, very soft, nice ! Taste is intense, sharp, tart, low acetic acid. Very fruitforward, aromatic, prune - but it creates a rather peachy aroma to me. White grapes, even. Medium fullbodied for the style. Medium carbo. Wonderfull balance !

Sampled multiple times before, but only took notes since brewver kept batches, so in 2020. Currently still for sale at 3F (drink in only) so enjoyed it at the source. Pours a very dark, unclear amberblonde. medium white head. Smell is full, funky, dry oak. Soft, gentle yet intense. Creamy. Taste is full, intense, wood, gentle tartness. Medium umami almost. Wet oak, softened carbonation. Mineral. Very nice, sure, but I had better batches of OG ( with about 5-7 years on it) than this one is specifically, at this point in time.
