750ml corked and caged bottle into a Cantillon tulip. Shared with schen9303.

Cork ejects with a loud, crisp pop. Beer pours a massive, as expected 3.5 finger foamy white cream head with great retention. Beer is a clear copper. Lacing is stringy and thick with good stick. Couldn't ask for more here.

Nose is citrus, lemon, hay and sharp cheesy tartness. Nice, crisp and aromatic.

Opens sharp citrussy tartness. Lemon peel, hay, sharp cheese and a funky tartness at the middle. Some cobwebs and more hay at the end with dashes of wet and rotting wood here and there. Finishes with a filmy lemon zest tart/bitterness. Same in the aftertaste. Definitely above average but the funkiness is a bit underwhelming here and its pretty simple overall.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down accented, bubbly and slightly oily. Messy finish with a long, lingering aftertaste. Real drinkable. Good for the style.

A very solid beer overall. Like a well aged Oude Gueuze. However, this is nothing to write home about though I'm more than happy to age a few bottles to see what happens with time.

Bottled February 17, 2011.

Bottle is a gusher. A bunch of foam comes jumping up right after opening. Lost a bit I am afraid to say. The beer is vary cloudy, coppery in colour. A very large and frothy white head on top, good retention.

Smell is funky. Yeast is there and contains notes of light fruit. Lemon and citrus are strong. Quite balanced in terms of funk and other flavours. A bit of cherry.

Taste is very good. Nice dose of funk, balanced with lemon, grass, cherry, apple. Quite sour and acidic. Dry. Like the nose, very well balanced. All flavours blended well together in a harmonious whole.

Medium bodied, very tart, dries the mouth quite significantly. Moderate to low carbonation. '

Overall, very good. Having tried the Lente last week, it is hard to avoid comparing the two. I certainly preferred the Lente, which was a bit more complex and exciting, but this is also a terrific gueuze. Like the Lente, it is very well balanced which seems to be a hallmark of the Drie Fonteinen gueuzes. Yum!

Bottle provided by Baron, thanks Baron!

A-Pours a cloudy deep orange with a finger and a halfs worth of frothy off-white head.

S-Nose is sharp, musty citrus and aged cheese. It’s quite funky and has a good amount of mineral to it.

T-Flavor has slightly less funk up to it, it’s more sharp lemon rind, aged cheese, wet hay, and damp basement.

M-Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is spritzy, moderate acidity, and a moderate finish.

O-Another great blend from Armand. Despite having this side by side with ’02 OGV in the past and thinking they were pretty different, I am inclined to pick out a lot of similarities when having this on its own. Look forward to seeing how this continues to age.

Slightly hazy dark amber colour with a small white head. Fair head retention given the style.

Very funky. Earthy and slightly goaty. Nice bitter lemon aroma and some almost husky notes. Good.

Well hello there. Very fruity with a big citrus hit. There is a real bitter lemon note here along with some grapefruit. The bitterness is quite high and the tartness is crisp and really good. Medium funk.

Moderate body with moderately-high carbonation. Solid.

A really nice Gueuze. Well blended with a nice balance of tartness, funk and bitterness. Excellent.

750ml bottle into a few glasses. Another rare 3F selection so generously shared by Stakem. Pours a hazed peach with a head of slightly off-white foam. This soaps the sides with rich sudsy lace. Smells fresh with a bright tartness in the nose. Light cheese and doughy sugars mix in as well. The taste is more tart fruit, with an almost grape skin or green apple flavor. This is complimented by a light sugary and bready backing, zesty, rind-like bitterness and a gentle funk on the edges. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a soft lively crispness in the mouth. It perfectly matches the flavors. While slightly funky and earthy, it’s that bright fresh crispness here that really drew me in. I think I enjoyed this even more than the Framboos. Thanks for sharing Adam!

Thanks so much to Steve for sharing this gem with us. Tasting a new 3 Fonteinen beer is a rare occurence, and I appreciate it very much.

Served alongside Armand '4 Lente.

The beer is golden hued, lightly hazy, with an inch or so of white head. The aroma is funky, grassy, herbal, citrus, classic 3F gueze scents, mineral water. But amid all that lingers a wild yeast funk that is noticeably different from the norm. This is certainly Tomme's contribution. Just kidding, I can't pick out any of those nuances. Not as delicious as Lente, but seriously tasty nonetheless. Tangy citrus and a hint of wheat perhaps. Great beer.
