Staffan47 (862) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2014
Nyårsafton. Typisk 3F i doften. Spannmål och lite ättika, mindre än vanliga oude geuzen. Elegant och balanserad. Låg funk men dock.

Apricots, hay, barnyard, leather, moderately sour nose. The mouth is med full bodied. Low carbonation, decent tartness with tons of hay, leather and mild fruity notes. Very well balanced. Tart finish. Nice

bytemesis (3099) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle with huge thanks to RobertDale! Pours cloudy amber gold with a small white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite simple, funky, barnyard, lemon, green apple. Flavor is medium tart and medium funky, a bit of fruity sweetness initially but otherwise dry dry dry. Medium body, champagnelike carbonation. This is a refined gueuze.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle shared @ Dak’s Black Friday tasting. Dark 24 karat gold with hints of brass, copper, and tangerine accompanied by a small ivory fizz. Loads of funky cheese, vinegar, lactic acid, tart citrus, lemongrass, horse blanket, wet hay and sweat. Also get some mild peach, apricot, and tropical fruit. Incredibly complex, sour, and refreshing. Two thumbs up!

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Bottle, enormous thanks to Ian and Savvy1982! Shared with Davey. Dark gold, medium white head. Loads of funk here, LOADS, with standout elements of rindy cheese, vinegar, rubber bands, lemon, apricot. Moves beautifully across the palate, nothing harsh, and very much more than the sum of its parts-- so drinkable yet o fascinatingly complex.
