Bottle at the DC Lambic & Sour Tasting on April 14, 2012. Served in a Drie Fonteinen old-school fountains gueuze tumbler. Huge thanks to drabmuh for bringing this bottle.

Pours a somewhat-cloudy golden color with a thin white head with moderate retention and a spot or two of lace. Thin collar as the head eventually falls.

The nose brings forward loads of funk with some light basement and faint cheese notes plus a hefty dose of general 3F earthiness. Light acidity lingering in the background along with a touch of oxidized malt.

The flavor is equally as impressive with a subdued acidity and plenty of up-front funkiness. Great interaction of Brett- and bacteria-derived character. This really took is up a level from the 1998 50th Anniversary.

The mouthfeel was the best aspect of the beer. No surprise for a vintage Drie Fonteinen gueuze. The body was medium in texture with light-moderate acidity on the back of moderate-to-heavy funk. Light carbonation and a dry finish. Acidity was quite smooth.

Really just an outstanding blend from Armand that has really, really stood the test of time. A fantastic experience. Thanks again, Matt. (1,147 characters)

Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty yellowish color lambic with a generous foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of Brett notes with some horse blanket notes with some tart notes also discernible. Taste is a very nice mix between some tart notes with light oak undertones, some horse blanket and wet leather notes offset by light green apple notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. I am surprised this has hold on after so many years. I really enjoyed the mix between the complex notes of wild yeast and the perfect drinkability level. (565 characters)

From a 75cl bottle; vintage 1998. Pours a light hazy full gold color with a fantastic amount of lasting Champagne foaming head. Aroma is a little musty with that slight note of horseblanket bouquet. Taste was very light and refreshing, sour notes where not that present for what I like in a Gueuze, still a very satisfying brew that I could drink all day. The mouthfeel was well-balanced with medium to light acidity, and nice lemony Brett tingle. Without question is a classic!! (479 characters)

Huge thanks to Chad, Craig, and Jeff for sharing this one. Never thought I'd try this beer.

In the glass, Millennium Gueuze is a bright, glowing orange. Hazy but translucent, with a stream of carbonation that feeds a long-lasting head. This is a beautiful gueuze.

The aroma is pungent yet surprisingly delicate. Damp wood, musty basement and cigar humidor all come to mind. It's got an earthy, woodsy character that's unique and remarkable. Orange peel, stone fruit and lemony acidity are also prominent, along with something herbal - bay leaf, perhaps. The balance and complexity of the aroma is outstanding.

Grainy, woody and earthy flavors lead into sharp lactic sourness. This is bone dry and very tannic, but not overwhelmingly so - the tannins do a beautiful job of balancing the sharp lemony sourness. Flavors of mint, oak and bitter orange peel come out mid-palate. This is so perfectly balanced and effervescent, it's difficult to sip and savor. It finishes tannic, dry and bitter with a hint of acetic acid and apple cider vinegar. Remarkable how well this beer has held up; 12 years has treated it kindly and I can see it lasting another 12 easily. (1,162 characters)

Into a small tulip it poured a bright gold with sharp clarity. Instantly it hissed audibly with crackling foam, which subsided slowly to a thin layer, then becoming a white ring with spotty lace. Visible trails of carbonation rising.

Aromas of wet musty wood and hay, mushrooms, damp leaves on the forest floor, some signature 3F horseblanket funk with a light zesty citrus note.

Clean and dry, zippy and tart on the tongue. It dries out almost instantaneously, with champagne-like effervescence. Ethereal with a ghostly lightness. Dry oak tannin and lemony citrus. It puckers the cheeks a little, though not extra sour. Finishes dry with oaky traces in the aftertaste. Very balanced and pleasant, champagne-like and reserved. Reminded me of 3F Oude Gueuze, mature and mellowed with age.

Thanks Charlie for busting this one out! :wub: (840 characters)

thrilled to be able to write this review. art of the mega sour tasting i did over the course of a week, reviewed from notes.

pours out a nice and cloudy, hazy amber with nice hints of white foam that peak through on the top of the glass and settled down leaving nice lacing all along the side.

aroma is deep funk with hints of barrel. oaky and earthy with apples, and pears coming into play almost immediately. not as sour as i thought it would be i have to admit, it was extremely well balanced. tart apples, oak, grasses, hints of vinegar only slight, and a light oxidation that works with the flavor. it was simply sublime. everything i wanted and more. long dry finish left slight touches of fruit on the palate and the end result was a wonderful mix of flavors that simply could not be beat.

so happy i had gotten to try this, another off the bucket list. (864 characters)

Can't say thanks enough to Jer for cracking this one open the night before Sour Fest!

A: The cork shot out of the bottle nearly as soon as the cage was loosened, but glasses were ready and no beer was lost. The pour is the typical orange-gold color with a billowing white head.

S: The nose is archetypal Drie Fonteinen funk. Lots of sweat, feet, wet hay, oak, grass, and earth. The lactic, lemony aroma is strong as well, along with some green apples and grapes.

T: The sourness and acidity are there, but not overly aggressive in any way. Lots of lemons, green apples, grapefruit, and there really is not any acetic character that I notice. Again, a solid funk of earth, grass, musty oak, and sweat.

M: The carbonation is obviously plentiful, and provides an excellent feel on the tongue. Light to medium in body with an excellent dry finish.

D: Like all Drie Fonteinen lambics, I could drink this all day. That said, I do not know that it is so much better/different than just an older Oude Gueuze at this point. But, I still enjoyed it quite a bit. (1,056 characters)

I picked up a bottle of this at Sour and Bitter in Copenhagen. Extremely excited to get to try this beer.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden amber color with two fingers of thick off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Lemon tartness and a very strong funk presence. Slightly sweet in the background. Very smooth and complex.

Taste: The age has smoothed things out (I assume, it's not like I've had this beer fresh). There is a mineral funkiness along with a lemon juice tartness. The finish is very sour. There may be a mild aged hop note as well. This is a complex beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with very smooth carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This beer is extremely easy to drink. Very smooth but very tart. Not biting at all. I feel very fortunate to have been able to try this beer. (831 characters)

This was the highlight of the recent tasting at foofaa's for me. Enjoyed from cervoise from the bottle.

the color is deep amber with great clarity and thin cap of white with ultra fine bead. the smell is sweet and floral with vinous odor and slightly herbal with some grapeskin-like sour notes with mild spice and slight earthy and toasted notes. The feel is super-dry with very high carbonation and mildly spritzer like with a lively acidity level and pleasing mineral note.

The flavor is lemony with herbal elements and a pineapple like bitter and acidic elment along with mild sugar balnanced by some spice in the middle. the flavor is juicy and extremely dry with mild white grape flavor with the grapeskin tannin and gentle tinge of perceived sweetness in the finish with light seltzer elemnt.

Overall this is just incredible I am so appreciative to Kramer for sharing this great Gueuze. I love how drinkable it is and it is definitely among the best in the style I have had. (988 characters)

One of my contributions to the big beer throwdown at Derek's place. Served in a tasting snifter.

A - Big voluminous foam that settles to a chunky partial cap and collar, leaving behind spotty lace. Lightly hazed golden body. Just a wonderful looking beer.

S - Holy funk! This has the signature earthy, green, and horsey nose that most Drie Fonteinen beers demonstrate. There's also some light hay and a faint whiff of manure, along with some sour lemons and stone fruits.

T - The taste is more subdued and smoothed out. It's heavy on earthy flavors and also features light sourness via lemons and underripe peaches. There's some slight oxidation, but it's thankfully not the papery variety.

M - This seemed a touch thin for 7%, and had a bit of grittiness as well. No alcohol, and a very dry finish.

D - This was really easy to drink. It's not a life-changer, but it doesn't disappoint either. I'd prefer Loerik and a number of other vintage gueuzes, but I'd drink this again anytime (if I'm lucky that is). (1,012 characters)

From 04/14/12 notes. Big thanks to drabmuh for sharing this one at our DC Sour Tasting. Served side by side with the '98 50th Aniiversary Gueze and a '99 gueze. This was my favorite of the three.

a - Pours a hazy dark yellow orange color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks like the other two, pretty nice.

s - Smells of sour fruits, a ton of funk, earthy notes, hay, light floral notes, spice. Lots of funk and sourness, much better then the 50th Anniversary Gueze.

t - Tastes of funk, oak, sour fruits, fruity malts, earthy ntoes, dirt, hay, floral notes. Not quite as funky as the nose but still awesome taste to it.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and very easy to drink.

o - Overall I thought this was an awesome beer; super funky and sour, especially in the nose. Easy to drink, an awesome beer that was head and soulders above the '98 50th. Would love to try again. (926 characters)

One of my biggest all time whale wants. Perhaps not the most difficult whale but still, amazing. Served along side a couple of other beers. This beer served in a Drie Fonteinen Gueuze tumbler.

Beer is yellow and hazy with a white head, heavily carbonated, strong aggressive pop that sent the cork flying. Head has some retention but not really. Some lacing, looks good.

Aroma is one of the best smelling beers from 3F on the night, sulfur, tart, oak, strong oak, funk, earth, dirt, brett, mild acetic bite.

Beer is light in body and really delivers, sour, strong, tart, dry finish, thinning out due to carbonation, overall a great beer. I'd definitely have this again. (671 characters)

Review #450!! Huge thanks to Kramer for bringing this long time want of mine to our recent gueuze tasting. Served right beside the four Armand'4's.

A - Pours golden orange with a beautiful one and a half finger tall white head leaving thin streaks of lace down the glass. A very nice looking beer.

S - Smells of musty basement funk, bit of funky cheese, oak, touch of herbs, vinous grape skins and a bit of citric fruit. A very intoxicating smell.

T - Starts off with a big dose of musty basement funk slowly giving way to hints of damp earth, oak, herbs and some vinous grape skin. Very little oxidation for being this old. Nice balance of funk to sour, leaving the pallet bone dry long after consumption.

M - Medium-Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Crisp, dry feel with quite a bit of dryness clinging to the pallet long after the finish. Carb is a touch high but I prefer it that way.

O - Well this one really lived up to its billing. The balance of flavors is nearly flawless and it is exceptionally easy to drink. Easily one of the best gueuzes I have ever tried. Thanks again Kramer! (1,111 characters)

Pours a fizzy white head. Color is a hazy golden bright orange.

Aroma: Funky, musky, horseblanket, light vinegar, acidic, lemon zest. Has a touch of brett. It is much cleaner than the 1999 oude gueuze I had. It has a lot of bright tropical fruit.

Taste: This one is pretty great. A bit acidic fruit profile. Lemons is the big fruit profile here. Mango is apparent. Big barnyard funk with straw and horseblanket. It is fairly oaky as well. A bit of spice and vanilla shows.

Mouthfeel: Dry, funky, and clean. Medium bodied with a a bit higher of carbonation, but it works. Ends dry, but clean.

Overall, a very clean gueuze. It has its funk and sourness, so the the word clean is an odd word to describe this. I really enjoyed the fruits in this even though lemon shines through the most. Good drinkability on this one. (821 characters)

Big thanks to Kramer for sharing this at a recent tasting. This was a brew I sort of wrote off as probably not getting a chance to try. Very excited to have this.

The brew pours a clear golden color with a finger of white froth. A light swirl revives a finger of off-white head that produces some spots of lace on the glass. Rising bubbles of carbonation maintain the cap right up until the last sip.

The smell is musty reminiscent of cork and old barrels. Cheesy funk is intermingled with some sulfur and a grain inclusion that is somewhat hay-like. Across the back end is a bit of herbal aspect that wraps this all up. Each whiff seemingly brings out a new level of character to take in.

The taste is dry and earthy with a bit of cork and must. There is a lot of barrel flavoring going on in this with some sulfur and herbal bitterness to break it up. There is a bit of dusty quality going on in the aftertaste which is unique. This was much more drying to the finish and more herbal, not necessarily bitter, than I was expecting.

This is a medium to light bodied brew with a perfect level of carbonation. For a slightly elevated abv from the normal 3f offering, it was masterfully hidden. The dryness and ease of drinkability are to be noted. I am super thankful to Kramer for having shared this long time want. Even though it is a landmark offering from 3F, I don't think I would pay the heavy toll this brew demands when their baseline offering is so well done as well. (1,478 characters)

Shared by drabmuh at our insane sour and wild ales tasting on April 14, 2012. Thanks Matt! Served alongside Drie Fonteinen 1998 50th Anniversary and 1999 Oude Gueze.

The beer is fairly hazy and rusty yellow hued with a quarter inch of white head. Pretty standard appearance for 3F. The aroma brings hay, citrus, funk, farm, a bit of age (in a positive fashion). The flavor really takes it up a notch. This was easily my favorite of this mini vertical. Outstanding balance and a long lasting, delicate, tart finish. Earth and citrus flavors are extremely well done. What a treat. (579 characters)

Sampled August 2004
Pours a lightly hazy full gold color. Topped by a volcanic, rocky off-white head that is driven by an explosive carbonation that propelled the cork from the bottle. As I pour this brew an intoxicating aroma of fresh cut lemons and fresh earth wafts from my glass. As I smell deeper I get a full on Lambic grapefruit nose, it is joined by a fresh mushroom aroma of chanterelles as well as a certain damp-cellar smell. The aroma is just incredible and I am not doing it any justice by my description.

The beer erupts on the front of my tongue as I go in for the first taste. It has lots of grapefruit character, and is acidic, but mellowed a bit by age and destiny, though this is certainly only mellow by Lambic standards. I swirl my glass to get rid of some of the excessive carbonation. This beer is so light and spritzy, it is quite refreshing. The finish of this beer has a definite tannic note to it that gives this beer a certain teeth coating astringency that helps to balance the citric acidity. There is a nice earthy component here as well, almost a woody mushroom character. As it starts to warm up, I get aromatic hints of a strong barnyard funk.

The grapefruit character in this beer is quite unique for me, I have only tasted this in straight Lambics from the cask before. I really like that they decided to concentrate on this character for this Geuze, it makes this beer all the more refreshing. What a treat, I really love a good Lambic. I am quite disappointed that I have just started drinking my second and final cup of this. I certainly wish that I had more. (1,605 characters)

Thanks to Chad (cpferris) for the hook up at our sour tasting.

Pours a very hazy dark golden orange with slight yellow hues, kind of a ripe banana color, and a two finger frothy white head wiith excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap and ring.

Beautiful musty barnyard aroma with a berg prominent horseblanlet presence. Hints of cobwebs, foot, bandaid, earth and lactic creaminess. The aroma on this beer is incredible with lots of complex funk and sweet light fruit. Hints of crisp light fruit, maybe some apple, pear and grape with maybe some straw and grass. I've been taking in the aroma for several minutes and haven't been able to even sip it yet.

Surprisingly full chewy mouthfeel, especially for the style. Very tart and puckering yet not acidic with slight lactic creaminess, erthy funk and oaky tannis. Sweet crisp light fruit notes, mostly apple and pear. Somewhat vinous with a sweet lingering vinegar character. Subtle dry finish. Complex yet very quaffable with a slightly dry finish. Highly recommended! (1,042 characters)

Huge thanks to hopdog for breaking out this expensive, much desired, bad-boy of Geuzes...
Appears a hazy, light golden with an orange hue. A small, white head fades into a mild cap. Mild spots of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is horsey, funky, plasticy, with notes of tangerine, apple tartness, and sweet tart candies.
Taste mimics the aromas with a standout of citrus, green apple, and funk.
Mouthfeel is medium/light bodied, tartness lingering up front with citrus lingering in the finish.
If you're a fan of Gueuze's, consider this one at the top of the list. (577 characters)

6/14/2010

I'm opening this to celebrate passing the final section of the CPA exam, which I sat for on 04/08/2010 and received the results of on 5/27/2010. The exam consisted of many, many hours alone with a book and a computer, and lots of stress...but I'm finally done!

Poured carefully into a La Chouffe tulip, Millenium Gueuze is transparent golden (the sediment left on the bottom of the bottle) with a three finger frothy beige head. This appears to be well carbonated.

In the aroma I find a strong Brett presence, with notes of wet horse blanket, musty barnyard, and salty cheese. I also detect hay, mushroom, and damp earth. Citrus coexists harmoniously alongside funk, and it's redolent of zesty lemon. The citrus is soft, vibrant, and moderately acidic, playing beautifully off the wood. I perceive ripe golden delicious apples. Notes of oak and vinegar are light. This has really opened up over the last 20 minutes. Wow!

The flavor opens with notes of earth, cobwebs, musty barnyard, mild wet leather, horse blanket and damp cellar floor. Lemon rind piquancy lends a puckering sensation, an upper moderate tartness. Lactic notes are soft, accompanied by a light vinegar character, wood, straw, and tannins. The beer is dry, but there's a subtle ephemeral sweetness to it that is quickly washed away. I perceive ripe golden apples and light pear notes. The crisp and acidic finish is a beautiful combination of wood, citrus, funk, and tannins.

The beer is light bodied with a high level of carbonation and a dry, spritzy mouthfeel. This is extremely drinkable. I wish I would have opened this up during daylight hours, to quench my thirst in the sun. This is among the best Gueuzes I've had. (1,708 characters)

Ditmier traded heavy to score this bottle... I should have entered in my review a long while ago, but was lazy instead.... Thanks Eric... Very cool to try this rarity.. Reviewed from paper notes.

Pours a slightly hazed light orange.. beautiful meringue white head... lacing is crusty spiderweb.

The aroma is everything I was hoping for.. oaky and funky.. dusty cobwebs .. composting leaves... bright lemon zest.. a bit cheesy.. musty... wonderful... I smelled it for easy ten minutes before taking a sip.

Flavor begins fruity and funky with a lighter than expected sour note.. horsey and woolen socks.... compost.. good oak seems mildly tannic and barely discernible in the mix... light apricot and tart apples .... green grape skin... seems sweet at some points and then quickly moves to bone dry tart.... tannic dry and earthy mushroom funk on the finish... a bit lemony too... damn.

Light body with good carbonation.... effervescent ...

Toooo coool. Glad I was able to try this one at such a cool setting.... Thanks goes out to both Erics.... Ditmier and Footbalm.

Appearance - Golden colour with a small size fizzy white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there isn't much lacing.

Smell - Yeast, breads/grains, lemon, funk

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste bread/grains, vinegar, lemon juice/zest and a dry yeastiness. There are also some grassy/herbal notes and a touch funk.

Overall – Incredibly drinkable and very well balanced. It's easy to see why this beer is rated as highly as it is, very well crafted. (561 characters)

750bl bottle into a drie glass at Akkurat.

First of all tons and tons of carbonation. At any given time I can only pour about a 2 fingers of beer for 6 fingers of head. At first its cool but totally annoying on about the 15th pour. Light peach beer, murky, light white head that is very foamy....The aroma is unreal strong. I could smell it the moment it was corked about 3 feet away from the server. Up close its very sour notes of earth, leather and mostly wet horse blanet..The taste takes on the wet horse blanket, tons of it everywhere totally dominating. Light lemon, but in general very musky...Feel is ok, nothing special, pretty easy to drink.

Overall, this is really good. A wet horse blanket gueze, it makes no bones about it. If that's the gueze you like that is for you. Had loerik yesterday and it is 100 times better, and that's saying something. Still worth checking out. (889 characters)

Re-Rate at Akkurat in Stockholm. Just as good, really wanted to not like it as much as I did the first time. The pour is hazy golden yellow with tons of thick white head and some large bubbles. The nose has cheesy funk, light mineral notes, lightly dusty paper, bright fruits, peaches, awesome nose. The taste has the same light funk, hints of cheese and mineral and lightly dusty. The bright peaches are powerful and really carry the weight, notes of citrus and a very pleasant sourness in the finish. The body is light, soft feel, medium carbonation and a semi dry finish. More sour than the 50th ann. but less funky. A touch more citrusy and slightly shorter finish. Still amazing!

Another HUGE thanks to Frank for sharing another gem!

A-pours a golden dark peach with plenty of fluffly head that is slightly off white in color.

S-the nose has a big funk blast, earthy and musky cellar funk with soft ripe peaches and notes of acidity. there is a pleasant citrusy aroma in the very back.

T-the taste has a nice musky funk in it, grassy earthy flavors that are slightly paper like, the acidity is moderate and the sweetness is strong with a very juicy fruit flavor of peach and light notes of lemon in the back.

M-very smooth with a medium to light body, this is perfectly carbonated giving it a good clean crisp semi dry finish.

D-this has a very good balance with plenty of earthy funks in it and a moderate amount of acidity. the grassy flavors play well with the funk as does the lemon. the juicy citrusy peach makes this insanely drinkable and I’d love more! (1,577 characters)

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with a light tan head. In the aroma, quite tart, with a note of fruitiness. In the taste, tart, and a dry mix of peach skin and white grape fruitiness. A small sour bite and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry, tart peach like note in the aftertaste. Dry and tart, nice fruit presence, and I LOVED IT! (342 characters)
