Bottled. Hazy golden, firm fluffy head. Distinct citric nose where barnyard is very evident. Soft, lively and juicy with concentrated flavours. Acidic and ultra-complex, yet frefreshingly drinkable. A super premium gueuze.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - corked and caged. Bubbly gold body with an effervescent white head. Nose is horseblanket, barnyard notes, light cat urine, tart fruits, and sweaty socks. Taste is delicious! Lots of tart fruits, barnyardy notes, light wood, earthy flavors, light sweat, damp basement, etc. Typical Drie Fonteinen and typical Drie Fonteinen quality! Body is tart and acidic but light and bubbly, as the style seems to dictate. Finishes with more sour fruits, damp earthiness, light wood, and barnyard notes. Great stuff!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Kulminator. 2002 Vintage. Pretty happy to get my hands on this one. Green label, green glass, golden pour, huge head. Massively bubbly, slightly cloudy, fantastic stuff. Sour and complex. Champagney with an off-note somewhere between light cheese and fresh tire (Iíll go with astringency). Musty and challenging. Very funky, probably needs time to grow on me. Strange and beautiful.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle@Delirium, Brussels. Really excited to see this one. Typical gueuze and typical Drie Fonteinen, sour and quite complex. This has a touch of juicy sweetness, but its pretty bone dry. Not as sour as other gueuzees, but still sour, with a slight mustyness. Grapefruity citrus qualities. This is a very balanced gueuze.

Bottle. Light golden coloured with a consistant small white head. Slightly moldy but in a fresh way. Tastes a bit "dusty". High carbonation. Very fruity and flavour of grapefruit. A nice dryness in the aftertaste. Very good.
