Popped upon my 1st bottle of many with my Swedish friends. Epic tasting night and thanks for acquirng these for me.
A - Big white head with moderately good retention with trace amounts of lacing. Digging the apricot colored body it leaves behind.
S - Lemon citrus smell with a surprisingly amount of grassy funk in the nose that's surprising for such a young gueuze. I cannot wait to taste how this will develop when I age them and open years to come.
T - More sour than I expected for such a young blend and a little bit surprised about the slightly sharper acidity. Perhaps my palate's a little bit distorted as this was one of five sours opened that night but it's a little bit unruly. Lots of lemon notes with slight amounts of passionfruit in the taste. Surprised at the funky dank taste but in a good way.
M - Large amounts of carbonation, medium full body that gives it a good mouth feel.
O - Cannot wait to see how this will taste with age. Really looking forward to its maturity as this will only get better.

Pour is dark amber with strong haze, lots of tight bubbly off white head. Nose is huge, so funky, tons of Cobb web and dusty notes with a bit of mineral and some juicy tangerine in the back. Taste isn't quite as funky but still quite so. Dusty funk, lots of cob web, notes of mushroom. Light mineral notes with the juicy tangerine through the finish with a light sourness, strong carbonation and a moderately dry finish.

Big thanks to FooFaa for opening this one for us to try. I have wanted to try this one for quite awhile now.
A - Pours clear golden orange with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.
S - Smells of strong barnyard funk, lots of minerals, damp basement, mild lemon zest and lightly toasted grain. I love that it still smells like the normal oude gueuze but turned up a notch or two.
T - Pretty much more of the same. Starts off with the intense barnyard funkiness and plenty of earthy minerals slowly being joined by the damp basement, fruit zest and light grains. Finish is spritzy funk, lingering long after the finish.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. The funky feel is quite nice really, it is noticeable but it doesn't overpower. I could have easily polished off the whole bottle.
O - Probably the best gueuze I have had in recent memory. All of the typical Drie Fonteinen flavors are there in spades yet it is super easy to drink. Glad I could finally try this one, thanks Dan!
