4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 07/12/2006. Hazy orange, almost no head. Complex, quite sharp aroma. It has red currants, wood, vanilla, eucalyptus, earthy leaves and wet leather. Musty, sourish flavor is medium dry. Lots of acidity, like fresh grapefruit juice with a touch sugar. Woody and herbal finish with leather and berry skins, good tannins. A touch of vanilla and delicate perfumes in the very late finish. Medium body, flat texture. Sophisticated and delicious. Complex yet easy to drink. Well aged.

Funkig och härlig. Viss kärvhet. Kärv. Tröttnar efter några hundra klunkar men bra att bryta av med ...

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Slightly darker orange, hazy. Malty and funky. Overripe apples, hay. Pretty much everything you’d expect from a good gueuze. Dry, but not that acidic. A wonderful beer, probably what I’d choose as a prototype for the style. Nothing really sticking out, just overall nice.
