Courtesy of Dunk at RBSG. Huge thanks to Steve for sharing this rare gem! Pours a cloudy gold orange color, with a swirly and foamy white head. Smells of sweet tannic fruits, lots of 3 Fonteinen sourness Ive known to grow and love, and acidity. The flavor was, of course, much the same. The acidity wasnt as sharp as osme of their beers, but it was definitely there. Still quite sour, and not chowing any signs of dying down due to age at all. Tannic fruits line the edge ofthe tongue as the cheeks pucker. Pretty brilliant brew.

Tasted from bottle at RBSG. I saw this online for sale at 100E ($160 + shipping)/bottle. I got a group a people together to each pitch in $40, but nobody had the cahones to pull the trigger. Luckily I am able to taste it today. I’ve never seen so many glasses (including mine) reaching for a pour. Just the 1998 they just opened. I got the second to the last pour from the bottom of the bottle. Medium cloudy yellow color. Nice sour. Super easy to drink. Wow. Very, very good.

Big thanks to ygtbsm94 for meeting me at the brewery and treating me to this one. Pours a cloudy orange, clearer than the Oude Gueuze. Nose is still fruity, citrus, clean with a slight amount of fustiness. Mouth is fresh, citrus, sour, but not too sour, balanced well with some oakiness. Finish is sharp, but not sour. Finishes quickly and very cleanly, leaves the sides of the back of the tongue tingling for hours to come. Stunningly good.

Thanks to Jeff! Cloudy gold, head may have a hint of color. Nose is lemon, a good amount of bright fruits. Acidity shows a hint of balsamic, wood. Flavor is lemony acid, no bitterness at all. Wood is present but not forward. Nice light malt ties it all together. Finish is tart & acidic, a hint of straw, fruit (strawberry?)

Koelschtrinker (16429) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 20, 2008
Für 27,50 Euro im Biercafe De Heeren van Liedekerke getrunken (geteilt mit dem Doppelbock). Säuerlicher, aber kontrollierter Geruch, angenehm. Das Bier startet prickelnd und leicht säuerlich, deutlich fruchtig. Dabei wird die Geuze immer saurer, was den Geschmack aber nicht volkommend ausfüllt. Fruchtige Aromen sind immer präsent, auch würzige Töne können durchgehend erkannt werden. Minimal brotig, überaus vollmundig, sehr süffig, ausgewogen, eine ständigeÄnderung der Aromen von Anfang bis Ende - super!

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Poured a cloudy golden/orange color with a sticky off-white head. The aroma was sour citrus with a huge barny funk and some fresh swee/tsour fruits. Tastes are a lot like the aroma with a prominant green apple taste through-out followed by some sour green and red grapes with a big musty finish. Incredible gueuze I never expected to cross paths with. Huge thanks to Steve (Hopdog) for sharing this!!!

Bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm Beer Festival 2007, after festival RB night
Hazy golden color. Wonderful Gueuze, cellary, cobwebs aroma. Lasting flavor, bitter grapefruit peel, citrus fruits; medium sourness, astringent; then more of the cellar feeling comes in. Excellent.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2007
(Bottle) Pours hazy orange. Fruity citric aroma with tones of fresh broken wood, mould and also some barrel wood. Undertones of bicycle tires, diesel and unripe berries. Medium sour, medium tart and very straight forward on the nose. Sour, acid and very complex flavour with a nice wood balance. A bit citric in the flavour as well with lemon and light grapefruit up front. Perfect carbonation and a tart and dry mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Fantastic and mind-blowing.
