oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2009
Bottled@Fonefan. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is distinctive 3 fonteinen and also some timmermans gueuze. As it warms up also the Cantillon sourness comes. Flavour is very wooden, sour fruity and apricotty. Once you get closer to the end of the bottle it gets more harsh grassy, sour wooden and dry. A very complex gueuze, which will probably mellow out through the years. But also very nice already now.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
Corked bottle n. 16007, vintage 2009, bottled 16.10.2008, 3+ years old
Cloudy golden color; generous head. The aroma is powerful, with loads of citrusy acidity, magnesia, cobwebs and some dry cellar smell, that grows later. The mouthfeel is quite dry, very lemony at first, but also with a subtle malt backbone and a surprising spicy touch; very sour but without excess; and the final gets full bodied as much as it is possible for a Gueuze, and certainly the result of the higher gravity. Very pleasant ans easy to drink
Different, edgy, very good.
