750 ml bottle at Akkurat, bottled Feb. 14 2007, poured into a gueuze glass. Synthetic cork.

A- Pours a hazy golden orange color with a white head that recedes to a collar.

S- Loads of earthiness, very damp and musty, mushroom and honey. Moderate tartness with some lemon. Smells a lot like some of my other favorites from 3F.

T- Moderate to high acidity, nice mix of lactic with a bit of acetic. Earthy, almost bitter funkiness, some oak. As it warms some mild plastic/rubber flavors start to emerge, not enough to ruin the beer but enough to be a bit annoying, I've heard this is a product of the synthetic corks briefly used during this period.

M- Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth and dry on the finish.

O- Another really awesome beer from 3F, it's too bad about the rubberiness, but this was still very enjoyable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

bottled 2/14/07

poured into a fonteinen stemmed glass

pour was dark murky golden yellow. light to moderate head, maybe a 1/4 an inch. small pop from cork, was not expecting a gusher.

sour, tart, and oak. old stale sour apple, some musty basement. light funk, with maybe a hint of cheese.

what really sets me off on this is the sweetness. sweeter than most fonteinens i have had. really compliments the fairly dank oak and musty flavors. some tartness but not as sour as one a little pucker. light lemon, some faint apple. overall, stunning.

light, dry, and light puckering. moderate carbonation.

overall, near perfect

Thanks to Jason for sharing!. Not sure if this will get merged with the standard Oude Gueuze Vintage but I'll throw down some notes all the same. The version we drank at Sean's engagement party a few back was also bottled 2007/14/02, but it had a regular label on it. Served in a Russian River tulip.

A - White foam settles to wisps, thick collar, and splotches of lace. Hazy dark orange body.

S - Mushroom funk, mild vinegar, hint of lactic lemony tartness, stone fruits, a bit of farmyard, and the signature Drie Fonteinen forest floor. This is a tad more acetic than your typical 3F, but doesn't differ substantially from the bottle with the Oude Gueuze Vintage label.

T - Taste is again more sour than I generally expect from Drie Fonteinen, with a mix of acetobacter and lactic lemony pucker. Light oak, with a nice tart fruit and underripe peach backdrop.

M - Smooth, medium body, with pleasant low-to-moderate carbonation, dry finish, and no discernible alcohol. Refreshing, although I could go for a tad more spritz.

D - It's another superior gueuze from Armand and company. Were you expecting otherwise? We crushed the bottle handily and I'd happily drink this again if I came across it.
