2016-11-01, corked bottle, 8-4-8-4-17=41
Cloudy golden color, generous head, reducing to a thin persistent layer. Delicate aroma of cellar mold, strong Brett, hint of hazelnuts. Quite smooth for a Gueuze, wonderful character, it has citrus peel, strong mineral, salt character, and strong astringency.
Side to side with the Lente, this is more classic Gueuze, the Lente has much more fruit, oranges.

Cloudy deep blond color, with generous head that reduces to a thinner layer, and nice lace. The aroma spreads in the room as soon as the beer hits the glass; deep barnyard smell, with citrus fruits. Good body for a gueuze, with some malt and wheat flavor, high acidic content, citrusy mouthfeel, strong barnyard. Sour final. Quite aggressive, but impressive al always from Drie Fonteinen.
750ml bottle @ Alex’s. Pours a slighly darker golden wheaty colour with ample creamy white head. Nose is sour, really funky with some fruity notes with lemon juice. Taste is sour, fruity and funky. lupulist (348) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2016
Pours a hazy amber colour with a thick and creamy white head. Aroma of lemon zest, and a hint of apricot and pear. Tastes acidic and citrusy, with a bit of lambic funk to balance. Interesting minerality too. Brighter and lighter than Lente, with a shorter, more dusty finish. tmrmwel (2089) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle, six years after bottling. Pours hazy golden, with a big creamy head. Aroma is sour, with hay, tart fruity notes rhubarb, currants and citrus peel, nice farmhouse notes with barn and bretty wooden notes with barrels, and slight tobacco and dark fruits, as well as malty notes with cereals. Medium body, with average to fizzy carbonation. Flavour is acidic, with hay, citrus peel, bretty wood and floral notes, and farmhouse notes with horse blanket. Dry, wooden finish. Amazingly complex and balanced. hackobock (4029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2016

(750ml bottle @ DHVL, Liedekerke, Nov 16 2015, split w/ phyllomedusa) Pours a fairly hazy orange-gold with a big fluffy white head and loads of lace. Aroma is cut wildflowers and wet grass with wet, spring mulch funk and hints of wood and underripe pit fruit. A bit musty but in a fresh way? Freshness continues on the palate which again is loaded with cut flowers, dandelion greens, mache, wet hay; light lime, a touch of oak. Mildly acidic finish repeats lime juice, more cut flowers, beautifully leafy. Just the right acidic bite. Light to medium crisp body, fairly high effervescent carbonation. Love how grassy and floral this is, with some fruit as well and a well-moderated supporting funk. Super refreshing and drinkable, maybe just not quite as standout as Lente. Splitting hairs! ctipping (2047) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2015
750 mL bottle. Bottle dated 3/26/2010. Unknown original review date.
Another gusher. Orange and hazy with a big head. Better retention than Lente, but otherwise a similar looking beer.
Bigger funk aroma to this than Lente. Less citrus, but has more of a distinct orange aroma. The funk is like an aged [not sure what I wrote]. Very nice and distinctly different from Lente.
Heavy funk flavor. Much heavier than Lente. Verging on a vinegar acidity. Dry and less fruity than I’d like. Herbal hops in the finish.
Dry. Cottonmouth dry, really. Puckering from the dryness, but not really from the sourness. Not as high in carbonation.
Good, but a step down from Lente. Hefty funk character that actually makes it feel a little sluggish. SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Huge thanks to whoever opened this. Maybe Tony. If not an associate. Pours a foggy gold color. A quick dissipating white head. A big funky nose. A lot of fruit flavors. A funky flavor in the end. Really drinkable. Great.
