This is a unique geuze, there is so much going on, Biscuit, grilled bacon and heaps of funk. I really enjoyed this one but is pipped to the post by Lente

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Really lovely beer, had it as an aperitive in Restaurantje ’t Klooster. Price is rather high, but with its unique story at least a one time must! Apart from the price the only downside is the bottle and package it comes in, I would have rather seen it simular as the 3 fonteinen 1999 with a painted bottle instead of a cheap looking label.
Aroma is fresh yet intence just like the taste. Lots of crisp sourness combined with the wood. Complex yet easy going.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thanks to someone at Woodshop 6. Pours with a hazy golden yellow hue and a small white head that does leave some great lacing. The aroma is absolutely incredible. Funk, brett, light oak notes, lactic yogurt, peaches, stone fruits and apple esters. Light woody notes, white wine. Incredibly complex! Some grapefruit like acidic notes. Flavors are also amazingly complex and amazingly balanced. White wine, restrained funk, light oak notes, tons of lactic acid sourness. Lively on the palate, dry, and puckering.
Quite possibly the best Gueuze that I have ever had the opportunity of trying.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The beer pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a tall white head.
S: Funk and grass, two of the trademarks of Drie Fonteinen gueuze, start this one off. Lots of lemon zest and lemon juice tartness to go with a rather musty funk and some green apple.
T: Lots of grass, lemon zest, and green apple tartness to this. A rather barnyardy funk, plenty of must and earth to it, too. There is a light grape and peach flavor on the finish with a sharp acidity.
M: Medium bodied with a medium to high carbonation.
O: Definitely a good gueuze. As with Lente, however, not sure it’s worth the additional cost.

Two tastings of this yummy brew from different bottles at the Woodshop share. Light orangey color and white head. Funky citrusy nose. A melange of flavor with sour lemonand grapefruit. Barnyard earthy and cheesy qualities are there. Some mild hop accents along with the barrel flavors are present. Really great beer and was stoked for the samples.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had this during the 2011 Shenandoah Throwdown, courtesy of the indomitable GT. Pours a lightly hazed orange amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Big and cheesy, lightly floral, soft funk. Horsy, with light citrus peel notes, soft green pea shoots, musty books. Medium bodied, malt, cheesy funk, spicy malt. Big funk, long slow developing acid, tart on the back of the tongue. Excellent stuff. Liked the Lente just a tiny bit better, but this is still fantastic.

Bottle thanks to bleeng at August tasting. Pours a cloudy gold copper with a medium creamy off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is floral and tart. Thin mouthfeel with a light sour fruit with apple and grape. Easy to drink very refeshing. Really enjoyed this one.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle with a slight gusher. Pours bright yellow with a nice white head. Nose is citric acid and tart, with a funky barnyard earthy aroma. Seems to a bit mellower than the spring. Woody, earthy taste with some citrus notes. Nosey and dry like a good champagne.
