Bottle provided by Baron whilst watching football. Thanks for bringing the Loons bro, I love drinking dis shit. 2011 vintage poured into a New Belgium tulip. Poured a golden brown in color with about a fingers worth of tight white head. It’s hazy in clarity. Nose is comprised of lemon and a ton of dirty funk. It’s surprisingly funky for this stage in its development. There is must, horse blanket, wet hay, and some cat piss. Flavor is less funk focused, there is still some sweetness accompanied by the lemon rind. There is some funk on the finish, but not a bunch. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is low, gentle acidity, and a moderate finish. I love Classic Gueuze/Gueuze BIO/etc., so I always think its a treat to have. I prefer 3F Oude Gueuze in terms of standard gueuzes, but this is probably a close second. Thanks for bringing this Baron.

Na 3 fonteinen de beste geuze die er is. Heerlijk bier! De afdronk op het einde is soms iets té scherp maar valt goed te doen.

Hazy and at the same time clear liquid, small head. Aroma is fresh and sour. Medium body, little carbonation. Taste is sweet, sour and soft.

une magnifique gueuze typée, avec un nez complexe, une bouche raffraîchissante, une grande longueur et un équilibre idéal. Un grand plaisir pour finir la soirée

tmoreau (2724) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey straw color, with a modest, quickly diminishing layer of soft white, bubbly head foam, and light spots of lacing. The aroma’s intro was one of light yeast with a hint of cheese-like funk, then tartness & dryness, with esters as citrusy lemon, and a blend of green apple & pit fruit. Medium bodied, and highly effervescent, the taste continued with fruit notes as the nose, quite dry & citrusy, with lingering tartness. A flavorful gem enjoyed by all at our tasting session.

teddybeer (2472) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 18, 2015
Pale golden color with a minimal and quickly diminishing white head. Aroma has notes of green apple with acidic notes. Flavor is fruity, slightly notes of citrus with a good vinegar mouthfeel. Easy drinkable

Bottle at the Earl Of Essex, London. This is an amazing beer, semi dry, sour to taste. A recommended beer.

SpongeRuiner (858) - Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Big thanks to tectactoe. Bright yellow pour with a bright white foamed rim. A lemon zest huge funk aroma. Perfect acidity. Immediately settles with a sweet bubblegum. Grassy sour notes. White grape tartness. Dry finish. Really drinkable.

King_Alex_II (290) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 7, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 Cloudy golden-yellow color with little foam. Smell is sour and not too intense with additional old feet flavors. The taste a little dry and it is exactly the right amount of sour with fitting carbonation. The aftertaste could be longer and more sour, but this is complaining at irresponsible high levels.

Bottle at home (bottled 2014, shared). Pours a clear golden orange yellow with a white, fizzy, fast disappearing head. Fruity, slightly tart aroma, yeast, barnyard. Light sour, fruity, vineous taste, yeast with a dry, light sour, ending and somewhat bitter aftertaste. Not bad.
