On an unusually cool July day, this is perfect. The scent is barnyard funky. Taste is tart and bright with an incredibly dry finish. I know that most think of this as an ideal summer beer, but for me it's the perfect Autumn drink. Highly recommended for a lazy Sunday wishing that football had already started.

A: Extreme head off a mild pour – looks like sea foam as it settles, no lacing, light golden in color with a hint of peach, a little hazy – 4.00, S: Extremely tart nose with signs of lemon and vinegar, I also smell what reminds me of paint thinner and grapefruit zest, dead-on for the style – 4.50, T: Sourness plus that skirts on the side of puckering, quite medicinal and with tons of vinegar, other flavor remind me of green apples and grass, quite funky all-around – 4.25, M: Light and crisp mouthfeel – 4.00, D: I can’t claim to be an expert of the style, but from what I do know about Gueze this hits the bulls eye, very drinkable – 4.25

Bottled May 5, 2008

Beer is copper in colour, with a moderately-sized white head. Head fades quickly.

The smell is divine. Funky horse blanket scents dominate, but are enveloping rather than excessive. Lemon and other tart fruit scents. Just beautiful.

The taste is very good, but not up to the nose. Again, funky yeast, lemon, quite tart. In keeping with my experiences with 3F beers, the tartness is well balanced. Very flavourful and potent but not overdone. Very complex. Dry, with a fairly bitter finish, which was a surprise and, while not unpleasant, perhaps a slight disappointment. Great.

Light bodied, highly carbonated but with very delicate bubbles. Astringent and very tart.

Overall, terrific.
