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.

Deep golden orange with a consistent off white head. Funky aroma. Barnyard, lemon, damp oak, wet basement, horsey. Citric acidity in the flavor. Bone dry flavor. Some lemony acidity, damp oak, horsey barnyard. Mineraly and earthy. Some cheese rind. Extremely dry and complex funkiness. A nice Gueuze.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2016 At Lambik-O-Droom opening weekend. 37,5 cl Bottle vintage 2012. Near clear orange golden with thin white ring head and active bubbling. Very rich aroma of hay, almonds, wood, grass, dough, lemon, grapfruit, peach, apricot, grapes, nutmeg. Medium sour on a rich fruity base, light bitter and strong minerallike character and saltiness. Over medium body, firm fizzy carbonation. Lovely tart fruity finish. This is fantastic beer!

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2016 Bottle 2010 vintage 37.5 cl shared at my birthday. Hazy orange golden with small white head that leaves a nice ring with little bubbles. Massive funk, white grapes, fresh lemon, typical 3F twigs leaves and some pepper, but also a soft sweet fruity aroma cutting through, some light fresh cardboard, quite some grains, sour grains too, grassy, light sweaty cheese. Nice balance between sourness, light sweetness and lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft sparkly carbonation. Super yummie, happy birthday to me. 4.5
2012 vintage 37.5 at their new location. Similar to the above, with more white pepper, light sulphur, white wine vinegar. Lots of fruit still. Slightly less bitter than the 2010 one. Ridiculously good, absolutely mind blowing.

Dit bier is echt één van de grootste smaakbommen die ik ooit geproefd heb. Zeker als ze een paar jaar gelegen hebben is het smaakpalet zo volledig, zo complex.. Deze flessen doen naar meer smakken!

St valentÿn cuvée 14.02.2007
Looks.. Yellow amber, sml head.
Smells..older lambic dank, earthy
Tastes.. So soft, still a slight carbonation. Lemon and green apples and the acidic punch is just so so soft, a little oak. I’m just gonna stop writing and get back to drinking this amazing aged lambic.
