750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 12/27/2007. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Deep orange with a small head. Clings nicely. Maybe it's just this bottle, but it lacks a bit of the impressive stature of regular Oude Geuze.
Smell - Awesome peppery funk. Heavy hay. Tang citrus that hints towards its sourness. Pepper above all. I love the way 3F gueuzes smell.
Taste - Citrus is more prominent. Orange. Wheat graininess. Pepper in the finish with less funk and a touch of oak.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. A bit heavy for the style and lowish carbonation. Not as effervescent as I'd like.
Overall - I don't know if this is better than regular Oude Geuze. I guess I'd need to try them side by side. Armand blends the best gueuzes and this is no exception. Phenomenal.
