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!

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

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 2007 vintage - yellow bottle (12/4/13). 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. 2008 - yellow bottle (late 2015). Deep rich peach colour. Aroma is funk and tart fruits. Taste is a heap of lemon citrus, very sour, mild funk, mild dankness. Still a great sour but not life changing like the armand series or most of the 3 fonteinen gueuzes, but definitely better and enjoyed more than the older vintage.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2015 Thanks to Tom for sharing this gem! Pours a light copper with a thin fluffy white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is of citrus 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.
