Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2004
[Sampled January 2004] The aroma is fantastic; sour and wild fermentation at its best. The color is orange and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is sour yet sweet at the same time with strong notes of the wild fermentation. A fantastic beer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Hazy golden with a fine little creamy off-white head leaving laces. Classic gueuze aroma of horse blanket and manure. Medium body with very dry Brett accents, fruitiness and even a light underlying bitterness. A very mellow gueuze which is pleasantly drinkable and not excessively sour. 211008

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2007
Bottled@Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy orange colour, big white head. Aroma is sour fruits, earth and bigtime sourness. Flavour is really balanced wood, sourness and some dry & sour fruits. Really much wood and sourness in the finish and aftertaste.

omhper (19322) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2004
Bottled. Deep reddish golden with lively head. Citric acid and wood up front. Strikingly malty and full bodied for a geuze. Complex flavour with cobweb and grass. The mouthfeel is however a bit bold and clean. A very interesting beer, but if you really want a superb Drie Fonteinen, go for their Kriek van Schaarbeekse Krieken.

Bottle at De Herren van Liedekercke. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Barnyard aroma with grapefruit and wood. Acidic flavor with grapefruits and some hints of wood. Long nice sourness in the aftertaste. Lovely.

Bottle shared at Sour & Bitter. Very hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Light dry palate., a little soft. Mildly woody. Mild orange citrus. Mild sourness. Pretty dry finish with mild sourness in the aftertaste. An approachable Gueuze for a non sour lover but really not getting all the stellar marks, no change there then!

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.
