Når inte upp till samma nivåer som golden. Stor skillnad men så även i pris. Den här blir lite i suraste laget av mer än ett par klunkar.
Edit: vad har hänt?? Helt underbar. Riktigt bra och balanserad. Lagom syra. Massor av funk i doften. Parallellt mot en cantillon geuze 2011 och 3f är tveklöst bättre.

Pours hazzy amber color with a small white head. Good geuze! Taste of apples, vinegar, some earth notes, grapes, wood and a dry finish

At 3 Fonteinen, they always create masterpieces. It’s weird to say, but this is actually one of their less good beers. However, that says most about the quality of their other beers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy, golden beer with a big and blond head. The nose is fruitfull and sour, nicely fresh, grapefruits, slightly citrus, also some green apples. Taste is strongly sour, grapefruits and some citrus, winegar. The end is dry and earthy, even slightly cellar. Medium bodied, the mouth drying sourness, some sugary stickyness, fresh. The strongly sour Geuze, great complexicity.

Unwinding the cage, the cork exploded into my hand after barely two turns of the wire. A small amount of beige foam flowed slowly out of the bottle as I tried to grab my glass. Pouring out a bright golden with a sparkle of bright orange amidst the strong carbonation. The head finished with a massive two inches of a porous yellow tinge that died quickly into a dense cap. The aroma is complex yet subtle with mild musty and barnyard aromas and a noted sourness and acetic note. Beautiful light fruity and dry hop aromas blend well with the vinegar sour notes. The flavour is well combined and blended with mild funk and must notes accompanying the sourness properly. Solid fruity and dry grassy hops make up the crackingly dry finish and mildly bitter backbone. The blend of old and young lambic shows off here with the great balance of old and young characteristics.

Thin foam head. Yellow straw colour. Nice rounded smell. Sour but not too sour. Aftertaste of a barnyard which is quite nice. Lacks some additional aromas it seems.

Surprised I have never rated this. Bottle bought from Ohtsuki in Osaka. Pale golden colour, off-white bubbly head. Lovely gueuze texture, nice carbonation but quite smooth too. Aroma is great, tart fruitiness, cream cheese, funky, lemon sherbert. Taste is similarly complex. Initial sourness but soon mellows. Lots of fruit there, gooseberry, lemon and grapefruit, sherbert like sweetness too. Nice mustiness, sour cream. Finish is lingering and slightly sour. Every sip gives you something a little different. Dry and thirst quenching. Lovely.
