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!

review #900 dedicated to LIVERPOOL FC for defeating man city in the race to the title
poured into fonteinen stemmed glass
pour started out a bit clear but glass fogged over from chill. head was light but fluffy however this is one lively gueuze. head just kept creating for some time after pour.
heavy oak up front with a sour lemon and apple. some fresh funky cheese lingering behind.
very unlike most typical fonteinen gueuzes. much more sharp and vibrant. very funky with a solid oak presence. heavy sour lemon compliments the bright oak. this is very bright, very sharp, very fresh. has some older musty flavors in the back that are pretty character fonteinen.
very carbonated, very lively. tingles the mouth all over.
pretty spectacular. its like the regular ouse gueuze turned up to 11. it is everything a gueuze could be and then some. this should age so well.
