BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 12, 2017
Bottle, best before 10/26/37 (blend 17). Pours with a hazed, a relatively dark (for Gueuze), amber tinged, sunset orange hued body with a large off-white head that fizzes away to a ring. Many bubbles rising the walls of the glass. Aromas are decidedly rustic with 3F funk, damp leaves, parm cheese rinds, aged hops, dehydrated stone fruit. Mild malt toastiness, old attic. Good lambic earthy, mushroom-y brett qualities. A bit more caramelized wood and oak lactone character than I recall in the regular 3F Oude Gueuze, but it has been a little while since I have had it. Flavors show more funk than acid (as always). Acid comes across lemon-y and very clean (only the faintest hints of acetic). Balanced aged hop and mild tannic bitterness, faint salinity in the finish. Light leather. Appropriately high, mouthfilling carbonation. Dry, mildly puckering finish. Light and bright on the palate. A bit reserved. A masterful and tasty beer as expected from 3F. A bit more brooding than the normal Gueuze but equally as tasty (not immeasurably more so though). Quite enjoyable, but not one of the truly epic blends from this blender!

RW80 (2842) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2017
375 ml bottle shared.Bottled on (10/12/2015) Opens with a big plop, but no gushers our whatever.
Appearance: A quite hazy orange body, with a nice white head, that collapses quickly to a smaller, but quite stable head.
Aroma: Cheese, Funk,Cholirine, wood and some malts.
Taste: Funk, Chees, some wood and malts in the back with a vinious gentel tart finish. Aftertaste is more tart, with still chees and wood.
Just below aerage carbonation, medium body.

Solid Lambik, but I had better. Seems a bit overhyped to me, but maybe that's me and my love & hate relationship for this style.

piwnepodroze (539) - POLAND - DEC 7, 2017
Okazało się, że zaczęliśmy od prawdziwego sztosa, mistrzowskiego piwa, doskonale zbalansowanego, choć też niezwykle intensywnego. Jest bardzo owocowe - cierpkość agrestu, nieoczywista słodycz mirabelki, brzoskwinia. Kwaśność jest średnia (czyli osobę, która nigdy nie piła lambica, mogłaby zabić), taniny wyraźne, lekka skórka. Mega pijalne piwo! Po prostu rewelacja!

Bule (2274) - California, USA - DEC 3, 2017
375ml bottle of blend 17 from 16-17 season. About 10 months old from bottling. Pours an orangey brown color with a bit of sparkling head that dissipates quickly. Wonderful balance. Easy going funk flavor. Delicate. Lemony citrus tartness.

Troszkę zawiodło, ale może na za dużo liczyłem. Aromat trochę mało złożony, walą po nosie cytrusy i ta ścierka jednak. Ładne piwo, trochę mętne, miedziane. Kwaśny smak (a czego innego można się spodziewać?!), ale za mało żlożony. Dobrze zrobione podniebienie ratuje sprawę choć trochę. Tragedii na pewno nie ma, ale miał być "sztos", a wyszło po prostu przyzwoite piwko.
