3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
#2 Birthday beer.
Pours clear golden with a medium, frothy, white head. Fine duration lots of bubbles - impressive for a gueuze. Aroma is very nice, some cellar, lots of green apples, funkiness, lactic and citric acids. Still maintains a softness and elegance with just a tad of vanilla and oak. Highish carbonation, super dry mouthfeel. Just a tad on the watery side. Flavour is tart, but not overwhelmingly so, apples, citric and lightly lactic. Very soft and nice, but not near the best gueuzes IMHO.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2010 Bottled, 375 ml, 07.03.2002. Oak, honey, lemon and a hint of pepper in the perfect aroma. Sour flavor, but an eased down sourness, not too harsh. Oak, lemon, grapefruit, raspberry. Still some sharp edges, that need to be eased down by further cellaring. Great balance, great potential. Very long oaky and citric aftertaste. Close to perfection, I wish I’d bought more bottles.
Bottle 375 ml, vintage 2-2005. Special label. Honey, lemon and sewer in the aroma. Sour flavor with sewer, lemon, grapefruit, oak, honey and rubber. Very complex and especially aromatic, but the aftertaste is too rubbery. (8 4 8 3 16 = 3.9)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2002 Vintage. 375mL bottle at Akkurat, pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of classic 3F barnyard funk, some horse blanket and more barnyard notes. Flavour brings out a very dry palate, with classic notes of 3F barnyard funk, lots of horse blanket, wild yeast and lightly tart notes. Extremely funky, even more so than the regular 3F Oude Geuze. Extremely complex and full of flavour. What a fantastic gueuze.

Bottled: Dark golden coloured. Unclear. Dense beige head. Very tart and earthy nose. Notes of berries. Flavour is very sour with a balanced fruityness. Its a very astringent flavour and very grapish. Is very refreshing and cleansing. Definately another very good gueuze from 3 F.
