Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at mrbubbler's "end of the world" tasting.

Bottled 3/5/03.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with malt, yeast, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with quite an earthy flavor and an acidic finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great aromas and flavors.

Thanks to Mark for sharing, and to Dan for hosting :thumbup:
Quick review from written notes, 2008 vintage.

Bright saturated golden orange, spotty lacing around the edges, visible carb trails rising in the glass. Foam subsided rapidly.

Mineral and sulfur traces in the nose, wet hay, lightly funky.

Sour grapefruit, lemon pith, bitter woody tannins towards the end. Clean and crisp, very smooth with a bone dry finish. Body is supple and full at the same time. Overall this was nice to try, it seems like a case of emperors new clothes, but it's a classic Drie Fonteinen gueuze all the same.
