Editor’s Note: There is a lot of confusion on this one. Please look at your bottle. It belongs here only if it says "Vintage" on the label. If it does not, it belongs under the regular Oude Gueuze listing. The above vintage guide is not what you should go by, as there are both 2002, 2003, 2004, etc...releases of Vintage and Regular Oude Gueuze.

Fruktansvärt underbar, härlig smak. Underbar bäska men tar inte överhanden. Helt underbar! Köp! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2007 Bottle shared with esp0r & edvard, september 27th 2013. Cloudy orange body, tiny white bubbly head. Aroma of grapefruit, barnyard, leather, berries. Taste is extremely refreshing, with a very nice balance between the sweet and sour stuff, fresh citrus fruits, funky yeast, hay, wood, and a slightly sweet malt character. Great stuff!

vintage 2002 thought i rated this but apparently didnt. poured a dark amber with big foamy head. poured side by side with 2008 vintage and you could really see the difference in color. smell and taste of cheese. a finely aged geuze. vintage 2002 is on the same level as the best geuzes ive ever had, awesome

2007 vintage - yellow bottle. Peach. Mild aroma of funk. Taste is very smooth for a oude gueze, not overly astringent, very tangy, sharp tropical fruits. Overall, decent gueze, but lacks a certain something - might be the 2007 wasn’t the year.

Notes from backlog. Nice funky acidity, a lot of tropical fruit, and a touch of vinegar.

Bottle. Hazy gold/brown with a thin white head. Aroma is very funky and sour with notes of tropical fruit, oak, and citrus. Flavor is very sour upfront but fades into a fruit and oak finish. Hints of lemon, barnyard, and apples.

Thanks to Tom for sharing this gem! Pours a light copper with a thin fluffy white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is of cittrus and wet hay, well made. Taste is softly tart, funky and loaded with tart green apples. Mouthfeel is nondescript but was light and refreshing. Moderate carbonation. This is really elegant like most of the other 3F offerings, really glad to have had the opportunity!

Vintage 2008: Une créature d’équilibre parfait, pommes vertes et fromage en avant plan, foin mouillé et petits fruits surettes en arrière plan, selon la gorgée....jusqu’à ce que le tout prenne ensemble et devienne le liquide qu’on voudrait boire tous les jours.
