Much touted, highly elusive, here’s a beer from a favorite brewer that just couldn’t disappoint. The frosty orange hue shows pretty nuances of pink, topped of a simple white cream. The nose displays a flabbergasting array of fruits and flowers. The house character is reflected through notes of peach, apricot, oaky vanilla and the unique sweetness of brown sugar. Lavender and rose add an unusual but remarkably pleasant touch, as the aroma slowly unfolds. Mango, apple, tangerine and pineapple proceed one after the other as the brew warms up expressively. The background is a true lambic foundation of cheesy, dusty, cobwebby scents that marry beautifully with honey and cotton candy. The flavor perfectly balances sweet, sour and dry. Raspberry and cherry are prominent at first as the palate shifts to an enjoyable dry Gruyère flavor and finishes on a smoky cedar note. The sourness remains smooth, almost yogurt-like, never impeding on the equilibrium of fruits and spices. Cinnamon, clove, white pepper and potpourri appear subtly with time. Like many high-quality lambics, this one becomes incredibly complex and delicious near room temperature. Another outstanding gueuze from Drie Fonteinen.

Bottle shared by Joe on 6/10/16.
Still wonderfully carbonated, with a soft golden-honey-marmalade appearance and a white head atop that slowly recedes to the edges.
Yet again, I loved the stuff, having not had it since 2006 or 2007. Here it still has its big, acidic bite, full of hard cheese rind-like lactic acidity, wood and lime. Yet it certainly has softened somewhat, as expected. Really hasn’t lost much, if anything, unless you really want that young, punishingly sour experience. I can certainly take it or leave it, and this still has plenty of sourness left in the tank, with tight carbonation and no alcohol or flaw. It looked like this was going to be the run-away favorite/best bottle of the night until we opened, yep, Blauw. That one’s balance, and deep but mild flavors outdo this one by a bit, I think, though of course much of it is preference. Glad to see that these beers (when stored properly) are still going VERY strong.
