Bottle shared by miketd. Thanks, man.
Pours a nice golden color with a light head. Smell is sour, tart, funky, and bright. Flavor is tart, with mild flavor otherwise. Very sour, but very neutral otherwise. Pretty good, but didn't blow me away with the lack of pop in the flavor.

Thanks to Mikey711 for sharing this one. 4oz. pour from a corked and caged bottle into a brandy snifter. Reviewed at a tasting on 2/19/11. From notes.

A: Pours near no head with just a slight white ring clinging around the glass. Beer is a semi-clear orangy-peach pulp. Lacing is spotty and sparse. Besides the ring of head that clings near indefinitely to the top, pretty pedestrian-looking brew.

S: Nose is lemon, peach, and citrus. Funk presence is like smelling an open milk fridge at a supermarket that hasn't been cleaned recently. Subtle too.

T: Opens with a slight lemon rind tartness. Grassy bitterness towards the middle. Yeasty. Tart lemon, peach, and Brett funk. Dry at the finish with a slight aftertaste of cobweb and wet straw. Above average, but barely. There's less funk here and much more earth and grassiness.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and slightly spritzy going down with some rough edges here and there. Very dry. Finish is a bit messy with a clean aftertaste that doesn't linger. Appropriate and well done but could use a bit less bubbles.

D: Much less impressive than its counterpart Blauw, Roos is more of an earthy gueuze rather than a funky gueuze. I was delighted to try this next to Blauw to provide a nice contrast (thse beers complement each other very well) but its important to keep in mind the flavor profile so as not to be shocked at what you're getting.

Transferring some old reviews over to BA. Bottle provided generously by Sean. Thank you for the extremely rare tick man.

A-Pours a cloudy pale orange in color with a half fingers worth of white head.

S-Nose is classic 3F gueuze with a touch of sweetness. It’s funky as usual, must and cobweb.

T-Flavor isn’t in your face funk like a vintage gueuze or an aged regular Oude gueuze, it is a touch sweeter and slightly perfume-like? Still delicious don’t get me wrong.

M-Mouthfeel is light and spritzy, with a moderate finish.

O-We sampled this side by side with blauw, and in my person opinion blauw was a far superior beer. Not to say that this isn’t a phenomenal gueuze, but blauw was just flat out better. Thank you Sean for the opportunity at these beers. It was truly a treat to try them side by side.

Generously shared by blatantdream alongside Blauw at our big sour tasting last night. Thanks!

Loud pop from the cork announces its arrival, though Roze kindly follows my house rules and doesn't gush. Impressively carbonated for a 9-year-old sour. Pour is similar to Blauw: golden-amber, transparent body with small white bubbles forming on the surface. Less head than its peer.

Funky barnyard yeast dominates the nose. Grassy, earthy, bitter yeast parades through my nasal cavities while oak and citrus try to make a name for themselves. Enjoyable, but pales in comparison to Blauw's decadent aroma.

Taste follows the nose with bold, funky yeast leading the charge. Hay, grass, and earthy notes support the base closely, squashing the citrus resistance shortly after it appears. Roze is the free-spirited younger child to Blauw's role as the composed, refined older sibling.

Really glad I got to try this, especially alongside the other J&J. Both held up surprisingly well after 9 years in the bottle, though it should be obvious which I preferred. Cheers!

Thank you for breaking open yet another great bottle, Jer.

A: The pour is a clear orange-amber color with a finger or so of white head.

S: Very grassy on the nose, like a lot of Drie Fonteinen beers. Quite funky, too. I seem to smell some blue cheese, which is interesting. A lot of lemon and lemon zest, in particular. Hay, wet oak, and must are there as well.

T: Again, there seems to be an emphasis on the grass and hay aspect of the funk. Plenty of oak and a slight must to go with lemon peel and lactic acidity. There's the typical dirty/sweaty sock thing going no here, too.

M: The body is medium with a moderate to high level carbonation and a dry finish.

D: Not as good as Blauw, but still a pretty decent gueuze. I wish I could have tried this when it was younger.

Pours with a white head that settles into a thin film atop the brilliant, clear, bright orangy golden geuze.

Delicious 3F funk hits the nose first. Lemon zest and bitter pith, general sourness, and slight citric sweetness round out the aroma.

Sourness is first up, lemon juice and straight up lactic. Very restrained funk for a 3F beer of this age. Mild earthiness and damp oak and cellar. Slight cheesiness and earthy mushroom come out as it warms. Distinct, perhaps uncured olive, bitterness hangs around for quite a while. Grassy herbal notes also arise.

Wonderful mouthfeel. Full but not spritzy carbonation. Damp, drying, oaky tannins linge long after the sip.

A very restrained geuze from 3 Fonteinen. While it doesn't beat you over the head with brash or complex funk and sourness, it achieves a beautiful balance that makes it a real pleasure to drink.

side by side w blauw. both have similar look of sienna chestnut orange with fizzy head. blauw was way more frothy. nose is a gray field on a spring day. immaculate. the blauw has a bit more character and sweetness vs the mustiness of roze. taste is a floral geueze with funk vs the insane perfection that us blauw. great geueze but blauw takes it

Another rarity from fonefan. I was ready for a gusher like the Blauw, but this cork popped with only moderate velocity and the contents stayed in the bottle this time.

The pour is a hazy orange with a decent fluffy white head that recedes to a cap and leaves spotty lacing. The body cleared up almost completely as it warmed. The carbonation is not nearly as visible and active as in the Blauw.

The aroma is a great mix of the tart, funk and fruity sweetness. There are some pears and apples in the nose as well as some tart lemon notes. The funk is not nearly as prevalent as in the Blauw, though it's definitely in there. This aroma may actually be a tad more balanced than the Blauw, but they're both great.

The taste is where I think the Blauw differentiates itself vs. this one. There is an massive acidic bitterness with lots of lemon and other fruity tartness on top. There is a bit of bready malt but the sweetness of the aroma is not evident in the taste. It's got a dry, funky finish that lingers on the palate and leaves me puckering a bit.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and bone dry in the finish. There is noticeably less carbonation in the Roze vs. the Blauw.

This is another wonderful sour from Drie Fonteinen, but I wouldn't put it in the truly world class category like the Blauw. It's got lots of acidity and funk but there isn't as much other components to match the complexity and balance of the Blauw.

Chilled bottle into a glass. Courtesy of a mutual tasting arrangement. Thanks, Mike.

A: No gushing; this is immediately more impressive to me than the Blauw. Pours a murky copper-mango juice color. Finger of off-white head that leads to a thin cap. Not much lacing down the sides of the glass, though there are a few spots during swigs.

S: Barnyard funk, white pepper, leather. Lavender / floral aromas (could just be the power of suggestion from the name "Rose," but the other guys got this, too). It's tannic, but much less so than Blauw.

T: Again, it's floral, with an emphasis on lavender flavors. Soft lactic sourness, horse blanket / barnyard funk. There's a presence of leather, grapefruit rind, passionfruit, lemon. A small tannic presence in the finish, giving it a lightly drying feel. Compared to Blauw, which I remember being unpleasantly tannic, this is impressive.

M: It's soft, sweet, and lightly astringent (tannic) in the finish. Velvety overall. Very easy on the palate, yet expressive and flavorful. I don't know what it was like fresh, but age has been kind to it. No major flaws or imbalance that I could see.

D: I liked this far more than Blauw. Good stuff...

2009 rate.

Bottle, thanks to Henrik. I can't believe I'm getting to open some of these bottles lately. It's a sign that this habit has either gone too far, or not quite far enough. Pour is a clear, medium honey gold with a nice head. Huge sour hay and geuze springs forth from the glass. Big nose full of sour barnyard, brett, green apple, and a really noticeable ripe banana. Lush. Damn, this is good. Tart sour hay at first, washes over the palate with a likeness of banana and mango. Very interesting tropical edge for a geuze. Quite spritzy and a touch harsh at times. Very big and interesting, though a lingering off-balance at the end which comes off as a bit harsh prevents this from being totally epic.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours with an almost three-finger thick, light tan colored head. The beer sits in my glass an amber tinged, honey color, but shows a brilliantly clear, copper color when held up to the light. The aroma has an appetizing lactic sourness to it up front that only becomes more intoxicating as one digs deeper into the aroma. Aromas of berry-like nail polish, tart grapefruit, perhaps a touch of pear, hints of honey-like malt, a bit of cat piss, maybe a hint of woodiness. Somehow this manages to smell thicker and heartier than your typical Gueuze. It is mellow for a Gueuze, at least the aroma is, not nearly as funky as some, though it is note anything near an artificial Lambic.

This beer is very dry, quite tart, and it does not feel thick as the aroma suggested, which is good as a Gueuze should not be thick. It does have some structure to it, with tannic oak character providing a creamy mouthfeel to this brew. The oak also seems to contribute a touch of character in the finish that has some light spiciness to it. This has a full on sourness to it that is not just Lactic, some other acids play a part here as the acidity seems a bit sharper than lactic gets on its own; it has touches of nail polish and maybe some acetic notes. Brettanomyces character is here, but does not play an aggressive role; musty leather, a touch of barnyard, butyric soaked cotton balls, and a sharp mushroom note are each noticeable to varying degrees. A medium level of carbonation is evident and provides a soft prickle as it passes through my mouth.

The second pour of the bottle provides a bit more haze from the sediment and yields some aromatic notes reminiscent of tart cherries, though this note seems to quickly dissipate. The texture becomes much more carbonated again, which makes the beer seem quite a bit lighter. Additional noticed flavors of sour grapefruit, light notes of tannic green tea, a touch of hot higher alcohols in the finish.

This is on the light side of the carbonation spectrum for a traditional Gueuze, but honestly the level of carbonation seems to have dropped considerably in the last couple of years, as most seem to be slightly more carbonated than your standard beer, which this is, as opposed to aggressively carbonated. I prefer the aggressive carbonation, as it seems more rustic and makes the beers feel lighter. I like this beer, but the nail polish note seems a bit off-putting at times, though it is always fairly light.

Huge thanks to Chris to bringing this to our post-Christmas tasting. Poured into a 3F wine glass.

A - Pours a darker golden yellow, white fizzy head, some spotty lacing here and there (not much), a very thin cap on top.

S - Funk, tart/sour, oak, floral notes, lemon zest. Not as funky as Blauw, but still a great level of funky goodness.

T - Lemon zest, oak, funk, floral tart/sourness, and an interesting slightly bitter/funky finish. This is better then the Blauw we opened up a few weeks back, but not quite as good as the Blauw we opened a year or so ago.

M - Light, champagne-esk/fizzy carbonation, dry finish.

D - Really enjoyed this one and it's about time I ticked this beer! Once again, huge thanks to Chris for bringing this and letting me get the tick. A nice holiday surprise!

A big thanks to Chris aka spycow for this very generous contribution to our post Christmas tasting.

A - Golden colored beer with a small head that quickly dissipated and left some random spots on the side. Appropriate gueze-look.

S - Not always a fan of guezes, but this one does smell pretty nice. Barnyard funk, lemon, some funkified fruit, grass and flowers, and some earth tones. The tart mingles with just enough fruity sweetness and barnyard to give this a great smell.

T - Tastes a lot like the above mentioned nose, with the lemon and earth making a more forward appearance than was expecting. Somehow tastes like it has some age on it, as the the tartness and funk being great but have both had the edge taken off of it. Some wood characteristic comes through, but it only adds to the complexity as opposed to being distracting.

M - Smooth with an appropriately dry finish. Carbonation feels quite natural, very champagne-like.

D - For a tart and funky beer, this is exceptionally easy to get down. Very smooth, unoffending, and drinkable.

Served at a tasting, side by side, with the J&J Blau. First thing is first. The labels of these beers are great. Oil paintings of a silhouette of a nude female torso profile, its just such a pretty painting. I understand that these beers were originally brewed for the brewer's wedding and the roos was for the wife (naked woman on the label) and the Blau was for the husband (naked man on the label). Great concept.

Beer is yellow and slightly hazy, forms a white head of tight / small bubbles. Leaves some lacing on the glass, carbonation is moderate.

Aroma is sour, citric and lactic.

Beer is totally bright tasting, its a wake you up kind of sourness. Its smooth and low in body. Drinkability is high. There is slightly more bitterness and slighlty more sourness to this beer than the blau and I'm enjoying it slightly more. Mouthfeel is good, overall the beers are very similar with the exception of the sulfur flavor in the blau and the more acetic bitterness. This is a great beer, too bad there is so little of it.

Big big thanks to my friend Olivier, who happened to stop by at De Heeren Van Liederkercke and picked up a pair of the His and Her lambics. A rare treat indeed!

Appearance: A little bit clearer murky peach tone than the Blauw, the head sported the signature lambic ring of lace.

Smell: Freshly cracked szechuan pepper, the funk factor was less present than the male counterpart, but it did have more subtle fruit aromas, and made me think of an antique wooden hope chest filled with decrepit blankets in a dingy old attic.

Taste: Woody aromas hit you hard at first, but become nice and mellow, with citrus notes and smoother carbonation. I liked the Blue better, but this was one fantastic lambic, and it must have been a great wedding!

Post Christmas tasting. 750ml bottle poured in a Bruery Tulip.

Opens with a nice pop of the cork but thankfully no gushing at all. Pours a golden yellow with nice lacing and carbonation. With a swirl of the glass you get that musty, barnyard funk, and some grassiness in the aroma. Taste is mildly sweet and sour, tart lemon, some exotic fruitiness that lingers pleasantly on your taste buds. The mouthfeel was light bodied and a little dry with feel of the right amount of carbonation. This is a really a good gueuze that is definitely worth seeking out albeit the rarity makes it tough on the pocketbook or your cellar to obtain these days unless you can savor it at De Heeren.

Glad I had an opportunity to try this. Now for a Blauw....

Bottle shared with the wife on August 12 2010 at De Heeren van Liedekerke.

A: Medium wheat colored body. Moderate sized white cap. Quickly receded and left spotty lacing.

S: Passionfruit, papaya and lemon make the nose quite enticing and inviting. Solid oaky must. Healthy dose of barnyard funk and wet wheat.

T: Taste is similar to the nose, but not quite as impressive. The fruity and citric notes are a bit muddled and muted. Perhaps age hasn't been as kind to Roos as it was to Blauw? Light oakyness, barnyard funk and prevailing sourness/tartness. (more of a 4.25 than a 4.5)

M: Moderate carbonation. Strong acidity manifesting in tartness and sourness. A bit muddled finish. Dry.

D: A very good beer, that was well worth trying. If I had any bottles I'd probably drink them sooner rather than later.

Ahhh the now bigger wale of the two.

Pours a white head. Great retention and lacing. Color is a hazed golden bronze.

Aroma: Cognac and oak. Big funk. Lemon acidic flavors. Vanilla and brown sugar spice. Musky. Killer aroma.

Taste: Lemon acidicness, fruity, melons, nice spices, vanilla, brown sugar, oak, and basement funk and musk.

Mouthfeel: Light fizzyness,dry, sour, and tart. Lighter bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, a really good gueuze. Blauw is better, but this is still solid. Solid -bals. Great drinkability. Another solid gueuze from 3F.

Bottle shared very graciously by spycow at the post-Christmas tasting--thanks Chris! Served in my Cantillon tulip.

Luckily, this one didn't quite explode the cork like the bottle of Blauw Eric generously shared a month or so back. The appearance was a slightly-hazed golden color with a thin white head but not much in the way of retention. The nose was pretty powerful with a good deal of funk and a touch of sourness carrying through in the background. Also there was a bit of hay, random fruit, and a nice amount of lemon rind. Very interesting and complex.

The taste followed in the same direction and really hits the style on tue head. Great funky presence along with mild acidic character. Nice lemony pucker plus some other mild fruits. Each sip reveals something else. Feel is fantastic with a great complexity of funk and a nice finishing light sourness. Huge thanks again to Chris as this had been a longtime want for me and I'm thrilled to finally have gotten a taste.

I don't even know where to begin with the thanks. Sean (Sean9689) decided to pull out this beer I thought I'd never get to try. Massive thanks Sean!!!! 750 ml bottle served in a Portsmouth tulip.

A: Pours a hazy golden amber color with a frothy white head that leaves some sticky, splotchy lace as it slowly makes its way down the glass.

S: There's really a lot going on in this nose. Sweet and tart berry. Some slight tangy blueberry, sweaty funk and some mild oak.

T: More berry combination. Tart blueberry, sweet strawberry, and a mildly sour lemon grass. Oaky vanilla sweetness with some nice funky after tones.

M: medium to light bodied with a nice carbonation. The finish is drying and refreshing at the same time.

O: Well a huge thanks Sean (again) for busting out this rarity. It was still incredibly delicious and vibrant after all this time and it was treat to have. I'm very happy to have knocked this off my "never going to have" list. But Sean wasn't done with this one...

Big thanks to spycow for sharing this one. Served in a Rodenbach tulip.

A - Pours with a finger-plus of white foam that dissipates to a thin cap, leaving little in the way of lace. The body is a hazed orange color.

S - Plenty of lemon, earthy mushroom and herbs, musty barn, and light diaper notes over top of a bouquet of rotting tropical fruits. Even though this is blended from lambics not brewed by Drie Fonteinen there is still some of their signature funk - perhaps that is why Armand pick these specific lambics for blending?

T - Light acetic sourness, some berries and lemons, a bit of woodland mushroom, and a bit more oak than I was expecting, although still less tannic than the Blauw.

M - Mellow carbonation, medium body with a smooth texture, very dry in the finish. The sourness gets a bit stomach-churning after a half-glass.

D - This is very good, although not on par with the Blauw I had back in September 2009 or the bottle generously shared by nerd this August. It IS, however better than the Blauw I had three weeks ago at TurdFurgison's place. Perhaps this is aging better, or perhaps it's just random bottle variation. We'll probably never know. In any case, a very good gueuze that is highly recommended, particularly if you are in the neighborhood of DHL.

Thanks to an awesome BA for the bottle!

Nice clean pop, no gushing, straight into a Drie Fonteinen tumbler. Light amber-brown body with a thin white head. Slightly hazy body.

Cedar, lemon zest and brett rise up from the glass. Musty aroma with earthy pepper notes. Lots of wood, oak and cedar, but not overdone. Beautiful spice aroma.

The taste is light, earthy, leather with dry brett and lemon zest. Earthy floral qualities mixed with oak and cedar. Dry, grassy, bitterness on the finish. Lemon grass citrus. Great flavorful balance.

Mouthfeel is dry brett with soft citrus. Light carbonation and slightly slick.

Overall, this beer has excellence balance and feel. Beautiful flavor and aroma. I really like the cedar spice notes that come through. Roos seems to be drinking really well, but I haven't had it fresh, so I can't say how it's changed. Definitely right up there with the best Drie Fonteinen blends. I'd love to have another bottle or two, but considering how hard this is to come by, your time and money is much better spent acquiring the new Armand'4 blends that don't cost an arm and a leg, yet taste as good or better than this. Still, Roos is an excellent beer and worth trying if you can.

Bottle I brought back from De Heeren to share with my family on Christmas Day 2008. Bottled 03.09.03. I picked this bottle up at De Heeren 5 years to the day, 03.09.08.

Beer poured a reddish copper color with a small white head, good lacing. The nose of the beer was tart up front along with some wonderful fruit notes (grapefruit, lemon, pineapple). There was also a strong bretty yeast character in the aroma. The taste is tart on the tongue up front but it mellows out a bit and makes way for some great exotic fruit notes. This one is a bit less tart than the blauw. This beer is fantastic and worth seeking out if you can find it.

Thanks a lot, Shane.

Clear reddish-orange in the glass, topped by a finger of foam. Head retention is great, this is an unusually beautiful gueuze. The aroma is very fruity with a faint fusel quality and some reserved funk. I get a lot of tropical fruit character; passionfruit, guava, and a touch of mint. One of the more unusual and enjoyable aromas I've come across in this style. I get more mint on the palate, along with a burst of lemon and tropical fruit (passionfruit). Quite tart and moderately acetic, the sourness is nicely balanced by strong tannins. The body is light and crisp, making for an almost quaffable gueuze. Finishes woody, semi-dry and fruity. Great stuff.

Much thanks to hopdog for getting this, along with the blue label, which we had side by side...
Appears a hazy, light orange with solid streams of bubbles rising to the top. The white cap quickly fades into a mild collar. Small scattered streaks of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of tart, plastic, earthy, pineapple, tart lemons, sour strawberries, and raspberries.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with standout lemony tartness coming through to the forefront.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, acidic, tart, with teeth-licking tartness.
