Wow - this is a biiiig beer -
Pours a little darker than a standard gueuze - nice foamy head.
Lemons, tart and funk on nose
Taste however is a dense blend of apricots, oranges and less lemon. Really full-on.
Lively, zesty...
Overall, the strength of flavour in a 750 makes is less drinkable imho - a shared bottle or a beer tasting sample this would be world class...

A & G Batch 57.
750 ml.
Alc. 5.2%.
Bottled 14/11/17.

Thanks to Fred for sharing with me.

Gentle pour yields a 1/2 inch white head over a slightly hazy, golden body. Nose of explicit funk with all the bells and whistles. Blue cheese, cellar floor, and wet horse blanket are well represented for a fine example of a classic oude gueze nose! Taste of grapefruit, white grape, and funk. Fantastic mouthfeel as one would expect from the "Champagne of Belgium." After it warms a bit, a hint of minerality comes forward as the funk fades. Overall, such a wonderful experience and I'm grateful for the opportunity. Cheers to Fred!

It's funny really, I went to Belgium expecting to still love cantillion the best for gueuze and lambics. Lambics probably still goes to them, but for gueuze 3 foteinen has blown me away! This beer is so good I feel like it transcends the style completely. Has a delicate nature, but has huge and powerful flavors. Great funk, sharp tart citrus, calming flowers and grass, deep earthy and farm tones, and nice wood accents. Best gueuze yet!

375ml bottle

Lemon meringue and lemon bars contrast with funk. Horse barn and medicinal phenols in a big way. Bit nutty. Beautiful gueze with bottomless complexity.
