750ml bottle split three ways. Looks like your standard 3F gueuze, maybe a little lighter, yellowish. Smell is very oude, citrus, musty. Flavor is quite delicious, extremely well balanced fruits, only mildly sour, hints of funk. This was easily my favorite of all the Armand ’4 gueuzes and the best Drie Fonteinen gueuze I’ve ever tasted. It might be the best gueuze I’ve ever tasted from any brewer/blender.

Bov (11456) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 6, 2016
from Erzbierschof - hazy red-orange beer with a long lasting foam; woody with notes of green apples, cheesy and funky with hints of cork and redcurrant; full-bodied, creamy palate yet fairly sour; quite dry with a long lingering sourness; aftertaste of flowers, red berries and cheese - great !

Poured from a bottle. Aroma is interesting with a lot of spicy, herbal notes. Some light over ripe stone fruit notes. Light oak notes. A bit of a weird aroma, which may be oxidation? Pours a hazy, golden copper color with a small, white head that shows good retention as it recedes to the edges. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with moderately strong acidity. Nice mineral notes. Lots of herbal, earthy notes with a light spiciness. Some bitterness with light oak notes. Some moderate over ripe stone fruit notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer but I was expecting more from Lente. It hasn’t aged well and is a bit oxidized. Finishes flat and has a lot of stone fruit.

ctipping (951) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2015
750 mL bottle. Bottled 3/19/2010.Unknown original review date. Gusher. Overflowed after popping the cork. Nice white head and good retention. Hazy orange body. Unbelievable aroma. Lemongrass, hay, and a huge funk. Fresh and light. Immense aroma, even if it’s as delicate as a gueuze aroma gets. Taste mimics the smell, but more acidic than funky. Lemongrass and hay. A touch sweet in the finish. Good barnyard in the background, but it isn’t the headliner. Overly carbonated. So carbonated that the bubbles are more noticeable than the beer at points. Makes it light and effervescent, but I feel like it distracts from the flavors. Incredible flavors, especially coming in the nose. Light and refreshing. Maybe not the intensity I expected and usually get from a 3F gueuze, but excellent nonetheless.

A slightly darker golden color full of bubbles. A ton of interesting flavors. Extremely drinkable. Would be fantastic to sip on for a hot day. Not very sour but still acidic feel. Great stuff.

King_Alex_II (1031) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 19, 2015
Orange color with solid foam ring. The smell resembles a buttery flower field with a little of old feet. The taste is sour, but not too aggressive. Light funkiness, but father decent. The aftertaste is dry and sour.
