Bottled 4/12/2005, reviewed 7/14/2009. 375 in 3 fonteinen glass at brugse beertje.

Ar: Sour funk, barnyard, cirtic and lactic acid, stronger barnyard than fresh 3 fonteinen but good and well balanced with acid, acid not too strong, complex

Ap: very fine haze straw with orange highlights, thick light tan/off white head, medium rough, great retention

F: Sour and smooth, very nutty and dark, amazingly smooth, starts with fruit, subdued sour develops to leather, complex dark funk with earthy notes, clean barn, wood, leather, woody oxidized quality, beautiful, an unbelievable balance, ends with mild acid

M: medium carbonation, very smooth, clean acidic end, not too acidic

O: The best sour I've ever had. smooth and very complex

2002 Vintage. Was absolutely divine. Perfect level of carb, great funk, light tartness, and zero oxidation. I got lucky!

750ml bottle from Belgium. 2007 Vintage. Into a Rodenbach Grand Cru Tulip. 27 Dec 2007 bottling.

A: A beautiful hazy apricot in color with a dense white head that foams up to about an inch, quickly receding to a cap of foam. Big gobs of lacing are left behind on the edge of the glass. Beautiful beer.

S: Funky and incredibly sour. I love Armand's blends, there are just so many notes in the nose. Barnyard funk, strong sour notes, lemons, cherries, and funk, but also there are these crazy notes of creosote, and aromatic heavy crude oil. It sounds like the absolute strangest mix of things, but it smells so wonderful that I want to bury my nose in it all night.

T: Follows the nose quite nicely, huge sour note with a ton of funk. Strong notes of lemons, but there are also some notes of peaches and apricots in here, quite fruity actually. Surprisingly enough there is even a touch of sweetness that finds its way into the last lingering seconds before I swallow. Absolutely incredible stuff.

M: Slightly thick with enough carbonation to break it up. Dry and puckering. Spot on.

O: Absolutely wonderful, hands down the best Gueuze that I have ever had. I really have nothing else to say about it. Simply perfect.
