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.

375mL bottle, 2008 vintage. Shared 3 ways and reviewed from notes.
Vigorous pop with corkage. Pours a heavily clouded apricot with a respectable white head that falls at a moderate pace to a collar.
Thick and meaty aromas of grapefruit pith and sour pineapple shaken up by a wild floral, herbal streak contributing big heather and dandelion notes. Hefty blue cheese contingent. Stonking nose.
Beefy green capsicum, brutally tart lemon and grapefruit pith, blue cheese, ground coriander and sage.
Thick, chewy, almost chalky texture with tingly carbonation doing little to mitigate the heft. Finishes with a very earthy tartness.
Aggressive and formidable gueuze. Not for the faint-hearted and very impressive.
