Vintage 2004. A really clouded orange beer, an off-white small head, some lacing and some curtains.

The smell is sour, sour cream and vinegar, old closet, leather, stable, and yest. Very intriguing.

The taste has fruit aromas, sour green apples, pears, pine-apple, rhubarbs, vinegar and cherry seeds.

Medium carbonation, small bubbles, a complex body and dry finish.

An elegant and well balanced beer, sampled at an Drie Fonteinen tasting at De Klomp, Linköping, Sweden.
Vintage 2006. A hazy dark orange beer, no head, but some curtains.

2006 bottle (same as Cam below - thanks for sharing Cam!)

Pours a very hazy light orange color with a whitish head. The nose is really funky - get that diaper flavor. It smells really good.
The taste is dry, funky and earthy and way more so than it is sour. Light on the palette and goes down quite easy. Not all that tart or vinegary. Really tame for a guezue. Overall, I thought this was a very accessible idea of a guezue and I enjoyed it very much.

2007 St. Valentin Vintage. Poured from a corked and caged bottle into a Cantillon tulip. Shared with schen9303. Reviewed from notes.

A: Standard pour yields a 2 finger fluffy, foamy white head with awesome retention. Beer is a deep, clear apricot. Lacing is patchy and spotty with great cling. Te only thing keeping this from a "5" is the overall sparse lace.

S: Nose is prominent Brett, wet hay and rotting wood. Sweet apricot and a sharp lemon tartness round out the experience. Aromatic with moderate funk. Nice.

T: Opens lemon, overripe peaches, Brett, a sharp tartness and band-aid and cobwebs. Persistant sour from beginning to end. Wet wood and straw. End is tart lemon rind. Finish is strong crisp sourness with a Brett and tart aftertaste. Pretty one dimensional but that one dimension is done very well.

M: Light to medium bodied, with moderate carbonation. Dry and puckering in the mouth. Dry and tart going down. Finish is sharp with a filmy aftertaste. This one is really bone dry. Very quenching.

O: As is, the Vintage Oude Gueuze is a very solid representation of the style. However, its brother Armand Oude Gueuze 4 Lente just makes it pale in comparison and the availability is about the same. A solid beer overall but in the end, outclassed by beers made and blended by the same brewer.

Reviewing the Oude Geuze Vintage 2003 from Brouwerij Drie Fonteinen out of Belgium.

Score: 95

Bottle is dated 03/05/03. Served in a Drie Fonteinen fountain tumbler and enjoyed on 05/28/14. Thank you Paul for sharing this treat!

Appearance: Pours a murky golden yellow color with a slight brown tinge and a thin layer of head that totally settles. Poor lacing and retention. This looks like your typical 3F Oude Geuze. 4/5

Smell: Musty lemon, cedar/wood, and a light barnyard funk. Residual "brightness" relative to the citrus character is fresher vintage OGV's. Reminisce (perhaps just because of the cedar/wood character) of Blauw, but with less complexity/zing. 4.5/5

Taste: Funkier than the nose, particularly on the finish. Tart lemon bite, must, grain, peach, and a little spice. Faint wood character on the finish. Lasting musty lemon on the finish. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied, good carbonation. Juicy mouthfeel with a nice gum-dryness to the finish. Nice tart bite with good linger. 4.5/5

Overall: The six year old bottle of 2007 and 2008 OGV that I have previously sampled still reign king among the different vintages of OGV sampled, but this still drank quite nice. Relative to the non-OGV Oude Geuze 2004 recently sampled, this vintage bottle had more zing despite being a year older. The OGV series is a testament to proper storage and the reliability of Armand's personal stash. I most recommend acquiring OGV 2008 or OGV 2007, but the OGV 2003 is also quite recommendable as well.

Cost: $40 for a 750 ml bottle.

A - Golden, brassy orange color with an average sized, foamy, and bubbly white head with a bit below average retention and a thin bubbly lace left.

S - Well balanced hay/barnyard/funk along with some lemon citrus and apple. Has a good juicy aroma along with a touch of a tart and acidic aroma. Perfect balance between the aroma, my mouth is watering and it is very enticing.

T - Similar to the nose. Some funk and tartness with just a hint of sour taste. A lot of fruitiness with some apple and lemon being strongest. Hints of other golden and tropical fruit as well as some earthiness. Some hay and mustiness and a touch of lemongrass. Very well balanced sour.

M - Medium body with a healthy amount of carbonation. Fairly smooth with a drying finish and just the very slightest bit of puckering.

D - Well balanced and not overly sour/tart but has a nice balance.

Notes: Bottled 02/10/2005. A wonderful gueuze that is very well balanced with the tart/sour/funky flavor and a juicy fruitiness. Easy to drink and a joy to drink as well. Definitely recommend this.

cork took some work, left a nice pop. nice burnt golden color. slightly hazy. big creamy puffy and slight fizzy head. amazing retention. lots of life in this.

oak up front, old musty oak. bits of sharp lemon with an old musty funk.

soft up front with a very dominant oak flavor. light hints of peach and lemon. lots of old dark earthy funk. a very complex mix of flavor.

light and lively with a nice moderate carbonation a tingle through the gums from the sourness. slight dryness.

this was a 2003 bottle
shared at darkness day by backfat
reviewed from notes

deep apricot color. small head. spotty lacing. looks like a nice gueuze. Huge oak notes. Some funky dank earth character. Light fresh citrusy fruit notes: lime zest, maybe some apricots or pears too.
Just tongue-scrubbingly sour. Very very nice. Really easy drinking despite being so acidic that it forces you to pull your cheeks in on the finish and do that thing where you feel the need to swallow repeatedly-- with a forced effort.

The beer is just delicious. Spectacular gueuze that I hope to acquire some bottles for myself...

375 ml bottle, bottled on March, 10, 2008, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a clear bright gold color, topped with a two-inch fizzy white head, it recedes to about a finger thick and then hangs around really nicely, leaves lots of lacing.

S- Awesome aroma, lot of earthy funk, notes of mushroom and wet wood. Leather oak and vanilla are also noticable. Nice amount of tartness with lemon and fruit. The aroma is really nice and has some of the best earthy funk character that I've had in a while.

T- Very bracing acidity with lemon and sour apple, complex barnyard funk, very earthy with lots of wet wood and hints of chalk, leather, vanilla and oak. Has a bit of fruity and malty sweetness towards the finish.

M- Light-bodied, smooth crisp feel, smooth feel with a dry, tannic finish.

O- A delicious gueuze, the flavors are complex and well-blended. This is a phenomenal beer and another testament to Armand's masterful skill, this beer only falls short of Armand'4 in terms of the best gueuzes I've ever had.

Drank from a e37,5 cl corked and caged bottle purchased at De Bier Tempel, Brugge, Belgium
Lotnummer 10/02/2005
Ten minste houdbaar tot: 02/2015
Served in a Drie Fonteinen tumbler

Brassy amber in appearance with crimson tinges. The slightly hazed liquid was topped by a tight, creamy, one-finger crown of eggshell colored foam. Over time, the head faded to a clingy ring of lace.

The aroma had tons of funky, musty barnyard character. Lots of wet hay. Grassy and quite lemony. Tart but not too acidic. Some Brett and critters. Fairly oaky. Mild sour cherry notes. Bit of crackery malts. There was also a touch of sweetness, which complimented the tartness quite well. Overall, quite intense and complex, yet still mellow and smooth.

The flavor profile was also rather impressive. A stiff, crackery malt base came through on the front end. Lots of wet hay and damp earth. Very musty and funky. Grassy in the center. Strong lemon rind notes were also apparent. This beer was definitely more bitter than sour. The finish was surprisingly hoppy, with the hops being earthy, pithy and quite bitter. Tons of oak and slightly acidic, vinegar-like notes came through as well. Very tannic and dry on the palate with some lingering wet hay, lemon and grapefruit rind notes. Overall, very complex. I was amazed by how funky and "old" the beer drank initially, yet how how hoppy and bitter it turned on the finish.

The mouthfeel was exceptionally smooth and creamy for the style. Medium-full bodied with a super fine, zippy effervescence.

Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze Vintage is a musty, funky and remarkably complex gueuze. The seven years of aging really seemed to soften any of the rough edges you might find in a younger example of the style. I paired this with some grassy, semi-soft goat cheese and would recommend others to do the same.

On a side note, I had this February 10, 2005 vintage alongside my girlfriend's April 12, 2005 bottle. I found my bottle to be slightly drier up front and much less pithy and bitter on the finish. It also had a much more plush mouthfeel. That said, I definitely preferred my bottle to hers.

2008 vintage into Russian River tulip

Pours clear deep gold with a massive creamy white head leaving good retention and lacing.

Lots of funk in the aroma. A lot of wet hay, citrus and apples with a bit of spice too.

Really deep layer of funk in the flavor as well. Very musty, sweaty gym sock funk. Also some pear, light citrus with a subtle spice.

Excellent creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation levels.

Obviously with 3F on the label, it's going to be good, but it's not one of the best in style I've ever had. Will still have again

Red label 2003 bottle shared by Denise for our Memorial Day sour tasting. Thanks!

Incredible aroma: sour, funky, tart, acidic, citrusy. Each freely billowed up from the glass to massage my nasal cavities. Taste balances everything well with a crisp, clean citrusy finish. Tons of depth that I'd never really experienced in a gueuze before.

I enjoyed this more than any of the Armand'4 bottles we opened immediately prior. This one aged quite well; wish we had another bottle.

Bottle. 2002 vinatage with the red label. Pours a slightly hazed straw color with a nice white head thy is quick to settle. Nice aroma although a little subtle and clean with hints of barnyard and earth. Citrus type aromas like grapefruit. Sour and tart smelling. Very clean tasting with a slight touch of medicinal undertones. Amazing stuff. Grapefruit with touches of tartness. Dry overall. Lemon zest with a slight touch of bitterness like tannins in wine. Light mouthfeel with good carbonation.

375ml corked & caged bottle from 04/12/2005 poured into a small table glass at Delirium Cafe.

Pours a slightly hazy deep amber with a very small head that fades fast. Woah! This nose is crazy, funky tart and very old and musty smelling, like nothing else I've had.

Not for the faint of heart, this is a very hardcore sour. It tastes old and tart and it'll make your face pucker. There's a lot of that barnyard wet blanket funk to it. It's a super slow sipper but totally worth a try.

2007 bottle opened in August 2015. Deep yellow body with minimal head retention. Musty, funky, and full of hay notes. Really smooth and balanced. Rich mouthfeel. Minimal carb. Lemon peel. Dandelions. Such reserved tartness. Funk is the star.

Bottled 09/04/2005

Pours a clear darker golden orange. A thin creamy white cap sticks around fairly well.

Deep musty mildew funk. Some peach and apple fruitiness.
Flavor is light on the tartness. Dominated by funk quality.

Carbonation has fallen out some leaving it pretty smooth in the mouth. Dry.

Pretty damn refined right now. Quite a treat to try.

Vintage 12/27/07

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a nice white head. Smell is oaky and peppery with a little bit of funk. Flavor is nice, but not as complex as expecting, especially right after the Armand'4s. It's extremely drinkable and refreshing with a nice amount of citrus, oak and black pepper, but isn't all that sour or funky. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied and super dry. Overall this is a nice gueuze but not really any more impressive than the regular 3F gueuze.

375ml into a 3F taster glass. 2008 bottle. This is review #500 for me!

A: Pours a clear straw-gold color with a spongy white head. Lacing is all over the place.

S: Pretty intense aroma. Citrus rind, muskiness, soft cheese, overripe raspberry, clean lactic acidity, a bit of wheat and malt sweetness underneath.

T: Moderately strong acidity comes through first, followed by faint oak and mineral, lemon, subtle vanilla, some gamey hay. The taste is cleaner than the aroma.

M: Light-bodied, very light carbonation, soft feel.

O: Although this isn't the best geuze from Armand, it certainly has an intensity (especially in the aroma) that not many other blends can match. Very nice.

2002 yellow label 375ml served at Bier Circus in Bruxelles on August 13 2010.

A: Bright straw colored body with a large white cap. Spotty lacing after a few minutes of slow destruction of the head.

S: Nice lactic tartness. Bright lemon citric notes. Musty oak and a nice wet horse blanket funk.

T: While the nose was quite inviting, the flavor profile just didn't match up. The flavors were a bit muddled and muted. The beer tartness was soft and the flavors never really popped. Age might of been a factor here.

M: Moderate carbonation. Medium body. Nice dry finish. A bit muddled throughout.

D: A good lambic, but not quite deserving of the special labeling. As noted above, age might of been a factor. Looking forward to opening a 2005 yellow label 375ml soon.

2007 vintage. Poured from a 750 mL caged and corked bottle into a tulip. Thanks goodstrongbeer for bringing this out!

Appearance: This pours a cloudy tangerine color with a golden border and a champagne color right at the edge of the glass. A small creamy white head forms initially.

Smell: This is a tightly wound aroma of fruit and sour notes. Nice horse blanket funkiness. Tart apples, sour white grapes, and a little woodiness as well.

Taste: Up front the flavor is quite tart, with tangerine pushing its way to my palate's forefront. An aggressive barnyard flavor comes through.

Mouthfeel: This is very smooth, sour, acidic, and dry. A refreshing carbonation keeps this feeling light.

Overall: Funky, very complex, and quite enjoyable. As my lambic experience grows, this is definitely one I would like to revisit in order to appreciate more of the complexity that I may have missed. Nonetheless a fantastic beer.

2002 Vintage (red label), sampled July 2010

Pours with an enormous white head, looks great for being 8 years old, a lightly hazed orange-amber-peach, a bit darker than I expected.

Smell: Perfect, tart and funky, tart and sour apples and grapes, elements of oak, sweat, damp stone, leather, and farmhouse / horse blanket.

Taste: Nice mild acidity, a perfect complement to the funk. Tart and funky as I said above, sour apples and grape with hints of oak, sweat, damp stone, leather and farmhouse / horse blanket. Also a white wine / sauvignon blanc element. Perhaps the most refined tasting Gueuze I have encountered. The taste is much less funky than the nose.

Mouthfeel: Creamy with a nice prickly mouthfeel; impressive for the age; very dry

Drinkability: Amazing, this is one of the best Gueuzes I have ever tasted.

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.

Understand that I HAVE to review this at the moment. What I've gone through is too glorious for words. I had the immense opportunity to have the most generous friends possible purchase a 1999 vintage of this at Mikkeller Bar SF tonight for my birthday. What would I do without lovely people in the world? Split 4 ways into wine glasses out of a 750ml bottle.

Just like an old darker red wine, it's impressive what 14 years can do to a oude gueuze. Not nearly as clear or golden-amber tone, this vintage is a solid amber orange that I've never before seen in the style, no doubt due to the sediment settling and fading away over the long period of time that this has gone through. There's an amazingly present amount of carbonation on this, leading up to a frothy head about 2 fingers tall that recedes rather quickly, yet provides sparks in its age. Very syrupy looking at this point, but definitely ranging on wine territory. Not too viscous - only very well placed and assembled.

The aroma is fabulous, as I'd expect - notes of white grape must, apricots, light cherries, and peaches, which then meld into a woody, musty flavor that is unbelievably complex yet not grating in any manner. Notes of oak are very strong on this, almost to the point of pungent, but they meld into other woody complex aromas such as cedar and cherry. Lively, but definitely the equivalent of entering an old, stone-filled, woody building, and the finish is definitely more mineral-y than fruity overall. No severe form of lactic or acetic acidic phenolic aroma here - only beautiful, well formed balanced between the dried stone fruits and musty, yet highly aromatic woodiness.

As for the flavor? Holy shit! (Pardon the language for a moment.) This is fantastic - up there with one of the greatest I've ever had. Right at the front of the tongue, you get strong notes of sour white grapes, as well as apricot, and soured cherries. Then, as soon as the fruits fade away, there's a straw, barnyard pungent flavor, that envelops into bright, vivid woody notes of mahogany, cedar, cherry wood, and (obviously) oak. Mind you, this isn't the buttery or spicy oaky notes you'd find in wine - this is one of kind. Imagine walking into a carpentry factory or studio (much like the ones I'd frequent of my uncle during my childhood), or an old home built with various types of wood that have accumulated dust and must over time. This is EXACTLY what this tastes like to me - a blast to the past filled with complex woody flavors and fruitiness, toppled underneath well settled must, funk, and slight tartness. Extremely easy to drink. Dry, yes, but also very juicy and extremely refined with years of aging. The woodiness may seem a bit too one-dimensional at times, but it's so unique that I can't really dock it for anything. This really was an experience unlike any other.

As I found myself sipping on the dregs at the very end, I wondered if I'd ever taste something like this again. I probably won't, but it's wonderful to see what excellent wood and the ever fantastic recipe of 3F's oude gueuzes lead up to after years of aging. Unbelievably rich yet super easy to drink, and filled with aromas that take me across different palates overall, this is supremely fabulous stuff. I will hold this memory as closely to me as possible for the rest of my life.

750mL, Vintage 2006, from notes on 3/27/11.

Pours a clear strawberry-blond, brilliant for the style. The head is small and wispy.

The nose is pungently funky in a woody, resiny way, along with some earthy and plastic-phenolic notes. Excellent.

Huge tartness is immediately revealed. Borderline harsh sourness is near Cantillon territory. The fruitiness comes mid-palate, with apple, grapefruit and sour cherry notes. Oaky barrel flavor is apparent, and the finish is acidic, dry, and bitter. The mouthfeel has surprisingly low carbonation, so this drinks almost like apple juice. Really, really sour and funky apple juice that is.

I don't know about this one. It was quite the complex sour experience, but I was expecting something smooth and refined with all the age on it. I enjoyed the standard 3 Fonteinen Gueuze more. Worth a try, it might be your thing.

750 ml bottled in 2006.

A: Murky red/brownish color, very little carbonation.
S: Very funky. Musty smells, a bit of lemon.
T: Must, lemons, apples, wheat, oak. Tastes better than the smell.
M: Medium body, I would've like more carbonation though.
O: Great gueuze, I haven't tried many but this one was almost at the top of what I've tried (probably second only to Lente).
