Amber with large white head. Aroma is lots of flowery stuff, peachy and fresh fruit, but also garbage bin in summer, and burnt plastic, maybe smoke. Taste is also fruity flowery sweet stuff, with again that burnt plastic garbage note. Some rotten berries in the finish. Complex and everything but I cant wrap my head around the plastic. I am sorry.

Merci à tom10101! Flore microbienne qui grouille, fleurs épicées et graines de sésame, bois imbibé et mangé, flaveurs acidulées, notes de campagne et de Martine, peaux surettes et terre sur citron vieilli. Pommes et foin avec fine couche de poussière. Pétillante, vivante, complexe, trop facile à boire.

Butelka, rocznik ’16. Piana tworzy się potężna, ale opada i trzyma do końca, kolor piękny- złoty. Super aromat owoców mi kojarzy się gruszką, do tego typowe dzikie nuty, dość mocno kwaśne, a przy tym wszystkim bardzo pijalne, świetny lambic!

DutchMark (386) - NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
Very good. Deep yellow with a big fast fading head and ample carbonation. Funky hay and stable on the nose. Complex flavor vinous with hay, grasses, leather and a nice dry bitter aftertaste.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Really dusty and sour, with a touch of Chardonnay-like butter, this Gueuze startles and satisfies, provided you take it slowly.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty blond.
-Oddly enough, hops pierce through the flavour profile with some greenness.
-The funk levels are higher than what I like in the style.
-Dry haystacks abound as well.
-This is quite complex, as is the usual 3Fonteinen, but it needs to mellow down a bit as far as I’m concerned.

Small bottle at the source. Clear copper with a white head of foam. Earthy and herbal. Strong acidity and earthy. Dry and floral finish. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Great beer!
