pintbypint (2811) - Edmonton, Alberta, - APR 23, 2013
750ml green bottle, corked. Bottle is dated 2011/02/17. Hazy golden coloured brew, pours with quite a large foamy cap that settles to a small layer of white foam on top with a tight creamy bead. Nose has bright acidic lemon notes. Tate is lemony, tart, sour. Some great funkiness in the finish, light woody note, long lingering lemony tang, then total dryness. Medium body with lots of carbonation. Bright and vibrant gueuze.

MrHangover (3061) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle @ Grote Dorst. Pours a clear light golden beer with a very big off white head on top. Aroma has massive barnyard funk, leather touches, white fruits, wood and vineous characters. Flavor is medium tarty, lots of ripe fruit, funky funkiness, some moldy characters. Definitely held up well during the years of aging. Long dry finish, medium tart ending. Great stuff.

Yorker (1466) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2015
Corked 75 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy amber with a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavour are lemons, brett, wood, leather, hay, and a little tartness - with a smooth finish.

piscator34 (2046) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle shared with oakbluff. Dark gold with a bit of haze and strong carbonation. Classic 3F aromas of barnyard funk, herbs, and lemon juice. Clean and concentrated acidic lemon flavor mixes with fresh mozzarella and kitchen herbs. Bone dry with a cleansing acidic finish. Another masterpiece from 3F.

sarro (125) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle thanks to Seb! Pours a solid golden color with a frothy white head and tiny bubbles. Nose is lemon rind, lime, and stale orange juice. Taste is lively with funk, mineral, mint, lime and some cheese on the end. Light bodied with high carbonation. A delicious geuze blend!

sebletitje (7221) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2014
Bouteille 75cl, bottled 2011/02/17. Partagée avec Omgrich et Sarro. Merci de m’avoir donné l’occasion pour l’ouvrir. De couleur orangée sur un léger trouble, le col reste épais tirant vers un ton légèrement blanc-cassé. Arôme offre de suite le caractère 3F avec pas mal de funk, les notes de lambics sont toutes la avec un bouquet fruité sec, légèrement herbacé et un rétro de cave humide sur une pointe acidulé. L’ajout de Boon indique peut être ce fini très sec. Palais sec avec une effervescence assez active pour une bouteille de presque 4 ans. Un léger fruité se mêle aux notes acidulés des levures sauvages. Retrouve le caractère prononcé des lambics. Pointe de rustique pour une gueuze agréable mais qui manque de tomber dans l’exceptionnel.

bursprak (1005) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2015 Bottle split 5 ways, cork opens with a huge pop. Light amber pour with some lacings on top. Green apples, lemon peel, leather, oak, vanilla, apple skin and some barnyard notes. Nice and mellow! Liked this one slightly better than OGV ’08.

Bottle. Thanks Bursprak! Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Aromas of green sour apples, stable, leather, barnyard, light grapes. Taste is sour green apples, light grapes, barnyard, slight vinegar, sourdough and slight leather. Complex - amazing!
