Editor’s Note: This listing is for a special edition geuze that must have a label as seen on the left: either yellow with a purple "vintage" line as shown, or a red color field. It is not for a vintage year of regular Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze, which has its own listing.

Bottle, vintage 2008 with huge thanks to Ben! Cork pulls with a satisfying pop. Pour is clear butterscotch orange with a medium off-white head that is fairly fizzy and dissipates down to a much smaller creamy remainder that nevertheless laces quite well. Aroma is light funky, barnyard, horse blanket, oak. Flavor has a bit of initial sweetness trying out quickly to a light tart, a wave of funkiness hits your palate immediately, but fades leaving the tart lemony oak notes behind. Lightish body and high carbonation. Pretty nice.

Bouteille de 750 ml, édition 2007, au Café Rose Red. Arômes très complexes de brettanomyces. Beaucoup d’agrumes. Robe dorée et légèrement trouble, effervescence moyenne à forte et belle mousse. En bouche, on retrouve une merveilleuse complexité de notes citronnées et sauvages. Belle présence fruitée. Très belle texture à la fois ronde et très légère. Finale très sèche présentant une acidité d’intensité moyenne. Probablement la meilleure gueuze que j’ai eu la chance de boire!

2007 vintage shared by Nate pours hazy pale orange with small fading head. Nose is incredible musty citrus funk, hay, barnyard, straw, cereal. Taste is bright crisp tart lemon, lime, woody funk, hayfield. Finish is sour lemon, lime, grapefruit, dank funky barrel, a bit of acidity on the tail end. Fantastic!

750 ml to taster (shared by blomster). Looks good; a hazy orange with off-white lacing. Smells like funky baby shit, but in the best of ways. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good beer.
