Bottle to flute. Dark gold with a huge billowy white head. Classic 3F funk on the nose with citrus. Flavor consisted of lemon flesh, citrus pith, lemon and grapefruit zest seemlessly integrated with the damp basement, cob web, leather, horse blanket and pungent parmesan cheese. Light body with high tongue prickling carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Great geuze, but 26 bucks for a 375ml will prevent me from buying this again.

Big big props to my buddy Kyle for sending me this gem. You rock brotha! Open with caution! The top popped right off before I even took the cage off. Luckily I was able to save everything inside, didn’t miss a drop. Incredible balance between sour fruit and tartness. One I wish we had on the shelves in FL.

bottle... another solid drie but the prices are out of hand for something not significantly different than a regular oude gueuze

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate lemon, lighter sweet citrus notes, cheese, and faint barnyard. The cork exploded out of the bottle as soon as the cage was removed. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a two finger lightly orange tinged off-white head with pretty good retention. The flavor starts with a quick dose citrus. The finish is moderate sour lemon, light oak, funk, and just a hint of cheese. It’s light bodied with lively carbonation, but it manages to come across as somewhat soft. Really good stuff.

pour is slightly hazed dark golden orange with a tight light tan head. The nose has tons of cheese, rather "rindy," and a light dusty funk behind. Golden fruits, apricot, pear, and peach. A light vinegar note underneath. The taste is slightly more muted than the nose, the funk isn’t as bright but still an assertive cheese rind with more cob webby funk. The apricot and golden fruits are intertwined very well. The finish is dry and well carbonated, the body is light and bubbly on the tongue.

Dejlig syrlig. Smagt på Lord Nelson. God aroma. Ligner en øl, men smager meget meget mere
