Bottle, thanks to fredrik_ and Ludvig. Opaque orange red with a thick beige head. Huge aroma of green apples and vanilla. Taste: green apples, lemons, tart and sour, low on the funkiness, dry finish. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Not a lover of the style, but this one definitely works for me.

Thanks JCB. Slightly cloudy golden amber pour with 2 fingers of sticky tan head. Awesome aroma, very wild and acidic with lots of funk, lemongrass, and light citrus. Bracing acidity in the flavor and no bitterness at all. Wild and funky with lemongrass and horse blanket. Light round fruity notes. Light bodied and dry. Awesome.

MJGG (926) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
Bouteille de 750 ml. Arômes assez intenses de levures sauvages (vieux fromage, paille, foin sec). Belles notes citronnées. Robe ambrée et trouble, plutôt foncée pour un lambic, effervescence moyenne et mousse se dissipant rapidement. En bouche, cette gueuze se montre plus rustique que la gueuze 3F régulière, montrant un côté de cuir et de foin sec assez fort. Belle complexité fruitée et boisée. Acidité d’intensité assez élevée pour le style et à la fois lactique, citrique et légèrement acétique. Finale très sèche. Un très beau produit.

Bottle shared with oj83. Pours with a light white head. Lots of funk and barnyard on the nose. Very refreshing and not overly sour so very much to my taste. Incredibly well balanced, fantastic overall.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2013
Clear amber golden colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, bread, brett, pediococcus, barnyard, hint of smoky rubber notes. Light tart, sour flavour, gooseberries, lemon zest, citrus, hint of sweet esters. Finish wood, tart, lots of citrus, lovely brett. Lingering. I’m truly impressed, it’s such an utterly brilliant beer, very flavourful while still managing to feel light. Thanks for the bottle from the contest, Armand!
