Pours thick unclear orange with a big creamy off white head. Aroma brings perfect sweet candi, grassy notes, and citrus tart. Flavor brings smooth citrus tart as well ending with no pucker at all, so smooth on the tongue.

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.

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:-)

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.
