750ml bottle of the 2007 vintage. Bottled 12/27/2007. Poured into a Drie Fonteinen stemmed glass 9/5/2014.

A- Beautiful hazy light copper-orange body. Three finger effervescent white head with great retention time. Not much lacing. [4.25]

S- As soon as the bottle is opened, the entire room was filled up by a citrusy funk. Very potent nose. Essentially, lemon zest, white wine grape must, musty cheese, oak, leather, funk. Incredible. This may very well be the best smelling geuze I've come across. [4.75]

F- Distinctly flavourful; very potent yet subtle. Tangerines, lemon zest, musty cheese, musty hay, oak, lather. Plenty of that signature Drie Fonteinen funk. Good amount of acidity but at the same time, it leaves your mouth wanting more. This is a true pleasure to drink in its complexity and power; especially when compared other sour beers in the same sitting- it is powerful, complex yet subtle enough that it does not overpower your palate and your drinking sensibilities. [4.75]

M- Medium body, perfectly carbonated- slightly prickly yet has a soft and billowy feel. The refreshingly dry citrus and oaky finish leaves you wanting more. [4.75]

O- I've not had the others, but the 2007 vintage is a clear home-run and deserves to be in the conversation with the other top lambics such as Lente and Zomer. Geuezes don't usually have a ton of variability in what flavours and aromas you can expect from them, but Armand seems to always find these barrels/blends where the best parts of the lambics are accentuated whilst minimizing the lesser aspects that might be there. World class. [4.75]

Final score: 4.725
