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.
Serving type: nitro-tap

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!
