Pours a clear, copper color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of sour, hint of alcohol, hint of citrus, and a hint of tea. Fits the style of a Gueuze. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation. There is also a strong dryness. Tastes of sourness, slight sweet malt, hint of hop, hint of pale malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, average appearance and aroma, good feel and blend, great body and great lack of faux sweetness.

Light mustiness, lemon, a little funk, some oak, some honey sweetness.

This is another one of those brews I've been aching to find...I did with the help of Gillagorilla, thanks bruddah! Ok time to get my hands dirty. She pours a nice rich golden honey body with a small amount of head lacing. Looks ok, time for a smell. Very earthy and citric with faint dead leaf autumn crispness. Hints of acidity with some sweetness in the background. Now my favorite part, the taste. First hits of a very tame acidic sourness, that's has a welcoming wood backing. There is also a bitter-sweet finish that's dry as a bone. There is a lingering dead leaf in the aftertaste. The feel is light and smooth with a very mellow carbonation.

Overall: This is a very good brew that I would drink again. Nothing earth shattering yet not disgusting either. I liked it better than I thought I was going to. I can recommend this brew to anyone, it plays in the "safe" line on Gueuze style yet balanced. This brew is Recommended.

Corked and caged 375mL bottle from Total Wine (St Petersburg, FL). 19.99. Bottled 04/13/12. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku.

Pours an opaque orange gold with only a superfluous cap of bubbles. Remains flat with neither head nor lace.

Aromas of citrus, a fruity tartness, vinegar, musty and funky.

Tastes more sour than tart. Musty, earthy & funky with wet wood, hay, lemon, white grape skins, bark, old fruit and crumbly bread.

Flat and dry with a light feel. Dry oak and soured fruit aftertaste.

A dry, complex and all around enjoyable experience. Softly sour and very easy to drink. After this and their Oude Geuze, I'm Convinced that I need to try more of Drie Fonteinen's offerings.
