3.5/5 rDev -14%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
12.7oz bottled February 23, 2006. Served at around 45F.
Pours hazy burnt orange with zero head.
Aroma is fruity, lemon & apple, oak, good deal of barnyard funk. Very good strength.
Flavor is acidic sour start to finish, funky, cheesy, woody, some lemon, apple, but fruit is subdued compared to the nose. Finishes a touch watery.
Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied, oily, a bit sticky, zero carbonation.
Interesting one. I’ve only had a few Gueuzes and this is a fair bit different than the others. Completely still, and a lot more funky and woody than what I’ve experienced. OK, but not my favorite...

4.65/5 rDev +14.3%

750ml bottle 6,0% Abv.
Served chilled in a wine glass.
Bottled 30 Nov 2006
Best Before: 30 Nov 2016
Appearance: It would seem that Doesjel is still feeling somewhat lazy and hasn’t fully carbonated, as a rough pour only yields a thin layer of bubbles atop a beautiful golden-orange body. Thankfully I prefer my beers with a lower level of carbonation, so it shouldn’t be a problem.
Smell: Oh wow, this smells fantastic! The nose is chock full of characteristic 3F funk and easily one of the best smelling lambics I have had recently. There is a fair amount of acidity alongside notes of cider vinegar, peach, overripe orange, oak, old wood, musty mildew, dry leaves, earthy, wet hay and a touch of cheese.
Taste: As the nose suggested, this is a fantastically delicious lambic. Notes include: Tons of funk, dry dusty leaves, musty, undergrowth, dry grass, old wood, oak, cider vinegar, lemon peel, and a touch of peach. The beer is fairly dry and offers a very slight bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel: As I expected, Doesjel is very close to being flat with only a few small bubbles floating around. The body feels a little fuller than other lambics, however that may just be due to the lack of carbonation.
Overall: Another superb lambic from 3F and one of my new favourites. I am going to have to track down quite a few more bottles!
