August 23, 2012 at The Craft Beer Co. Shared with Chris_O, Mes & Sim, Sledutah and ... others. Green corked and caged 750ml. Cloudy yellow-gold with a large and lasting fluffy white head. Aroma - oh YEAH, complicated sour funk - lemon, dry yeast, dusty oak almost completely masking the fairly fruity thick base beer and alcohol - dusty, musty and everything you want in a sour - add some white pepper, persimmon and dried flowers to the taste. Big mouthfeel on this - lively, acidic, dry, warming, long lemony tingly finish - just terrific!!!

Man, this is good. Very refreshing.

traPISSED (106) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 28, 2012
75cl at home brought by Olly. Bottle opened with a bang! Typical golden hazy 3F Gueuze colour accompanied with Armands signature Vintage Gueuze aroma that reminds me of digestive biscuits and crispy bacon. Initial taste is balanced but at the end there is a sharp sourness that arrives with a citrus hit. Refreshing and one to share. Could do with some ageing as the Jonge lambic was still quite prominent.
