375 ml bottle split two ways, í08 vintage. Dark golden pour with a tiny head that quickly fades and leaves small lacings. Loads of funk, barnyard, green apples, lemon peel and some leather. So mellow but yet so complex. This is wonderful stuff!

2008 vintage thanks to Mathias. Slightly cloudy golden orange with a good creamy white head. Aroma bus barnyard funk, mature cheese, dried stone fruits, hints of preserved figs. Medium bodied, tart and funky on the palate, very well balanced and complex, lightly fruity finish. Taste is dried apricots, peach pits, mature cheddar, candied citrus, hint of sour peach candy. Delicious.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Dave. 2006 Vintage.Thanks man! Pour is slightly hazy orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Big funky, lemon rind, biscuit, sweet tarts, urine, slight cheese, and wax in the aroma. Taste is lemons, some grass, dough, biscuit, stone fruits, orange, and vanilla with a semi sour finish. Slick mouthfeel with almost no carbonation. Nice stuff - just wish it had more carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2015 2007 Vintage - tasted february 2015 : dark amber pour with a stunning head. Rich earthy and mineral aromas. Splendid connected scents of barnyard, citrus, brett, white grapes, tannine. Very deep and full bodied taste character that lingers on, even in the stomach. Aging did its work! Such strength! I taste lots of apricots, some vanilla, pears, honey, apple, medium tartness and acidity, hops in the finish. What a splendid Vintage! Deep, round, potent and balanced at the same time. A 6 year vintaged vintage I will always remember! Bottle from the brewery. Vintage 2008: released this weekend. Feature the red label artwork "Nightlights" by Felix de Boeck. Pours amber murky with small sticky foamhead. Aromas are woody, oak, cedar, orange zest, very balanced and soft to the nose... and mouth! Tart, dried apples, slight cheese taste; medium sourness and smooth acidity that finishes slightly dry to the mouth. Appreciate this Vintage for its unique smoothness, balance and character : this one of the best old gueuze blends around. Chapeau Armand!

Iíve had many vintages over the years, they ranged from very good to excellent. This rating is for the 2002 Vintage (white label). Pours a blond with huge white head, spectacular. Aroma is barnyard funk, lots of cheese, oak and light menthol. Taste is so bright and well balanced between lemon and cheese with a considerable oak presence. Palate is dry (not the driest Iíve seen for a beer this age) and highly carbed. It feels so fresh for such an old beer, one of the best 3F vintage Iíve had.
