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.

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.

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).

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.
