ComradeK (1060) - The Vale of Dundas, - JUN 24, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a large white head, which lasts very well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has a very strong sour funk character, with plenty of weighty, savoury oak, off-dry lime and some almost rose-like floral notes. It is powerfully sour up front, with lemon, tart apple skin and black cardamom notes. A funky, leathery flavour comes in towards the mid-palate, which gains weight and body from savoury, tannic oak. Fresh, biting sourness combines with the oak in a dry finish, which leaves an oaky, leathery aftertaste. This is simply a superb beer, even better than the standard Oude Gueuze. It is powerfully sour, yet beautifully weighted and balanced. A delightful, complex gueuze.

MrHangover (3055) - 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.

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 (7156) - 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 (979) - 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.

JohnnyJ (4774) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle. Semi hazy dark amber pour, with a white head. Aroma is very pungent funk, it burns the back of the nose with horse blanket and hay. Flavors of lemon grass, wet hay, green apple, leather, white grape, white vinegar, oak, wheat grain, and sourdough. Complex and delicious.
