Big thanks to FooFaa for opening this one for us to try. I have wanted to try this one for quite awhile now.

A - Pours clear golden orange with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of strong barnyard funk, lots of minerals, damp basement, mild lemon zest and lightly toasted grain. I love that it still smells like the normal oude gueuze but turned up a notch or two.

T - Pretty much more of the same. Starts off with the intense barnyard funkiness and plenty of earthy minerals slowly being joined by the damp basement, fruit zest and light grains. Finish is spritzy funk, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. The funky feel is quite nice really, it is noticeable but it doesn’t overpower. I could have easily polished off the whole bottle.

O - Probably the best gueuze I have had in recent memory. All of the typical Drie Fonteinen flavors are there in spades yet it is super easy to drink. Glad I could finally try this one, thanks Dan!

Bottle, Mes’s 40th, cheers our kid! Cloudy orange with a thin white head. Aroma isn’t aggressive but is all out lambic awesomeness. Funky, lemons, tart but so smooth and drinkable, an experience, staggering, the complexities of this are lost on me but I enjoyed the fuck out of it. Very very good beer.

Med ölföreningen, smak och doft av syrliga äpplen, jäst, citrus, trä. Fruktig, torr med fatkaraktär. Porlande och frisk, fantastiskt gott.

jesperhammer (3034) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2014
21-MAR-2014, bottle @Mikkeller. Hazy golden with lasting White head. Sour, wine-like with a huge brett doze - gun smoke. Extremely smooth. It does seem like it could have some age? Huge carbonation, sour but not hurtingly so. Really a treat:-)

Vignale (2149) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2014
Flaska från SB. Drucken på ölföreningen. Gyllenfärgad, mousserande, frisk syrlig träig doft. Bra balans mellan syrlig fruktighet med grape, syrligaäplen främst, träig fatkaraktär, mustig funkighet med lite fuktig hästfilt och rejäl krispig syra, allt i perfekt balans. Riktigt, riktigt gott.

bootle bigtime thanks to nielsnielsenrakings for the ahab wedding toss courtesy. thar she blows. old notes, consumed around christmas time and just getting around to entering this now bc i am @ moran. aroma pleasant minerally lemon zest, soft cowhide, clean oak. perhaps slightly more acidic than i would have prefered, but definitely not offputing. light apple. pretty drinkable. lotta classic drie foneinen mineral, foggy, leathery funk with a bright, yet soft lemon zesty punch. very tame beer.

Bottle corked shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear hazy amber color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast, tart fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour yeast and fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sour finish of moderated to long duration. This is a standout for style beer.

750ml bottle. Bottled 2011/02/17. Big thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing this one! Totally hazy vibrant orange color. Thin off-white head, leaves good thicker splotches of lace. Looks great, especially for a gueuze. Awesome, complex aroma... Some citrus, lemon, middle-eastern spices, dark musty wood... Just sniffing this makes my mouth water. Floral notes. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft carbonation, that rises up to a quick crisp finish. First sip is very pleasant on the palate. More dry at the end. Moderate sour, a light spiciness, and light to moderate sweet. A distinguished geuze... Clearly one of the best I’ve ever had, definitely stands out. Not as socky and funky as others, a relatively clean, bright aroma, less basementy. Very pleasant stuff. With each sip, I try to contemplate the flavor profile, but instead just end up philosophizing life...

750 ml bottle shared with the group thanks to kbudd19. Pours a hazy dark golden/light amber color with a large white head. The aroma has opened with big funky, musty, earthy notes and some lighter fruit character, some citrus, wood, very interesting and enjoyable. The flavor has everything from the nose with more fruit, wood, funk, stinky cheese, good carbonation keeps the flavor popping. I really like this one and wish I had more.
