blklab2007 (1878) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle Feb. 23 2006 making this one almost 8 years mold now. Bottle opened with no action and the pour has a copper golden color and a few bubbles on the surface but no carbonation. Mouth feel is light and the beer is flat as expected. Flavor has dry oak, nice yeasty funk, super acidic, brett, and a lingering salty dried out finish. This is interesting because it does have everything the carbonated gueuze does and the age has done killer things for this beer.

Erzengel (1912) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2013
Dunkelorange im Glas, kein Schaum, da keine Kohlensäure. Fruchtig-säuerlicher Geruch. Der Antrunk ist mild-weich, einen Tick wässrig. Zum Hauptteil hin entfaltet sich eine nette mild-säuerliche Note, dezent fruchtig. Die typischen Lambik-Aromen sind eher verhalten. Nasse Pferdedecke nur ganz entfernt im Nachgang zusammen mit altem nassen Holz. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine säuerlich-fruchtige Note.
--> Nettes Gueuze, gut zu trinken, aber etwas wenig tiefgang und bei weitem nicht so komplex und aromenreich wie andere Vertreter dieser Brauerei.
Test vom 27.2.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,13,10,12,11 - 11,15

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. 2006 vintage. Orange pour with a very a few bubbles but no head. The aroma is awesome and I almost don’t want to drink the beer - I just want to smell it. I get some great funk and brett notes as well as some orange citrus. The flavor has some great oak and leather notes as well as the classic 3 Fonteinen funk. Incredibly complex and interesting. Medium mouthfeel and no carbonation.

Bottle @ tasting, 2006 vintage. This vintage really seems to find it’s way around here and popping up everywhere.. Pours a clear orange beer without any head. Aroma is oak, sherry and very vineous. Big fruity base with some age on it. Flavor is light sour, age took off the edges from this one, oaky and bretty. Really refreshing after some massive barrel aged imperial stouts. Very nice, balanced brew. Good stuff.

Bottle courtesy of MrHangover. Poured a cloudy dark amber with a round white head. The aroma is smooth acid vinegar citrus. The flavour is medium sour with a big vinegar palate. Light bodied with flat carbonation. A nice beer to taste and fine in small quantities, but the vinegar starts to dominate eventually and i’m not a big vinegar fan.
