4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2016 2008 version in beersel. Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma of huge funk notes and mild tart lemony citrus. Taste is more balanced with big funk and acidity, hugely complex. A very nice treat to try this.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ lambic o droom, tasted side by side with regular. Pours almost clear golden with a white head. Aroma of green apples, moldy, barn, light acetone, stonefruits, citrus. Taste is quite acedic, with a tad too much acetone, tho a very nice blend with lots of good fruits,. Imo fresh oude geueze is way better.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012 vintage at 3F in Lot. Side by side to a fresh 2015, December bottle. The old one is deep and intense in the nose, not too funky or fruity. The beer starts smooth with slightly souring hints. Lots of sourish woody depth, fresh, intense, wood. Long intense slightly funky but sourish horse blanket aftertaste. Fantastic and much more settled than the younger version!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 mL bottle, Bottled 12/27/2007. Reviewed from notes.
Deep orange with a small head. Clings nicely. Maybe it’s just this bottle, but it lacks a bit of the impressive stature of regular Oude Geuze.
Awesome peppery funk aroma. Heavy hay. Tang citrus that hints towards its sourness. Pepper above all. I love the way 3F gueuzes smell.
Citrus flavor is more prominent. Orange. Wheat graininess. Pepper in the finish with less funk and a touch of oak.
Medium body. A bit heavy for the style and lowish carbonation. Not as effervescent as I’d like.
I don’t know if this is better than regular Oude Geuze. I guess I’d need to try them side by side. Armand blends the best gueuzes and this is no exception. Phenomenal.

2010 bottle. Hazy orange shade. Quite a lot of head. Dusty aroma, light apricot, jammy fruits. Taste of fruit rinds, quite dry, not too sour. Great balance and drinkability. Lovely.
