This beer is awesome... I kept it on it’s side for a week in the fridge and enjoyed it in my garden. Refreshing, tasty... this is perfection

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 (29/01/2012) 2009 Vintage 750 ml. bottle sampled @ RBWG 2012 – thx to Diabel – bottle nr. 879/1400 – glad to see this one around even tough I didn’t expect it since I didn’t pick it up when I was it – hazy orange with lambicy white head – smells like sour lemons, some hay, slight barnyard, fresh lemons, something slightly hearbal – tart & sour lemons, slight funkiness with some barnyard, slight lactic, white grapes, horse blanket, hint of acid, straw with some bitterness in the aftertaste –fluffy body, soft carb. refreshing, lovely //// Tried this one again, on par with the best of 3F now, really improved, if people only knew

PhillyCraft (3093) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle from Jeremy, with Bill and Frank. Pours a hazy oranfe with small to medium off white head, tiny bubbles. Aromas and taste were sour and very tart lemons, oak, peach, fruit skins, tons of wood, and lactic acid. Light carbonation with a refreshing and salivating finish. Excellent.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Corked bottle, n. 0572/1400, vintage 2009, 4 years old, courtesy of Jane (fonefan)
It opens with a loud pop; the bottle is a slow gusher; it pours a bright copper-gold color, with turbolent persistent perlage sustaining a medium sized head.
The aroma is clean and penetrating, pungent; acidic and fruity, with strong character of pink grapefruit, followed by dry cellar and cobwebs; finally some notes of cheese rind.
It’s well carbonated, the mouthfeel is therefore partially smooth; very dry, but with a good body structure, supported by a good malt flavor, plenty of pink grapefruit, correct bitterness, and a moderately astringent final.
Balanced and elegant. One of the best Gueuze I had in a long time.

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2011
Surprisingly good yellow head, if fast gone over hazed foxy-amber beer. Citrus, lemon, Bretts’ nose, bit "putteke", horseblanket. Superbly balanced blend, even some hint at sweetness (the loeierik used?), sour apples, Bretts, lemon. Lip-smacking acidity, lactic to a certain degree. Sharp, tart, but essentialy fruity-lemony. Refreshing as only gueuze or B.Weisse can be. Superb gueuze, top blend. Difficult to say without direct comparison, but I might be tempted to prefer it on the Girardin Black Label.

traPISSED (102) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 13, 2012
75cl bottle at home thanks to Paul and Heidi at the brewery. This was labeled as black label. Very nice blend which was hugely balanced. Not really different from other top vintages from Girardin but a classic non the less!

PriorL (1642) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2014
75cl bottle, shared by BoBoChamp. Many thanks for all the beers shared today! Bottle 0115 of 1400 APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, little to no foam. NOSE: sour, funky, wood, brett, little 3F like? TASTE: very sour, dry and little bitter aftertaste, florar, rather sweet, some hops there even, fruity. Very very good!

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 12, 2011
tepid gold, no head, unblended appearance. Nose is lemon, rind, heavy hay, some cheese, lightly spicy acetic in the back. Flavor is heavy citrus, softly lactic, bit of wheat and cobweb, short finish, lightly dusty, low malt balance or finishing dryness, very juicy instead. Thin, sticky finish, light and juicy, very pleasant, some awesome stuff here, but a bit one-sided. Sit it for a year if you have the patience, hopefully it picks up some additional funk.

Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2012
2009 vintage, botte #879/1400
Orange gold colour, slight white head. Aroma quite tart, fruity, citrus, light silage, quite floral. Makes my tastebuds go wild already as if I was pavlov’s dog. Flavour is quite tart, geuze, lemon, light lactic acid, light silage and hay. Nice and dry, tart finish. Great geuze.
(From 75cL bottle @ RBBWG 2012, Antwerpen. Thanks for sharing, diabel!!)

Subtle nose of sour fruit. Taste of sour fruit, earthy, hint of mint. Dry, great mouthfeel. Amazingly good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
