A 375ml corked and caged but unlabelled bottle at 3 Fonteinen lambik-O-droom. 2010 vintage, bottled on 8th March 2010. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A hazy dark orange colour with a just under two finger puffy white head that had good retention and left some nice sticky lacing.

Aroma: Funk, barnyard, hay, earthy, citrusy lemon, oak with hints of herbal and green apple.

Taste: Tart, funky, hay, lemon, grapefruit rind, wet oak and hints of green apple.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light to medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall: Just wonderful, with great aromas and taste continuing after 8 years in the bottle.

2010 vintage from 3 Fonteinen cellar on 3/30/2018. One of if not the best Gueuze I've ever had. Incredibly smooth, perfect blend of funk, sour, biscuit. The oak shines through on the back end. One of the best beers out there Gueuze or otherwise.

Finally got to try this classic and it did not disappoint. Has everything you are looking for in an authentic Geuze, distinctively bold yet smooth, fantastic!

Had '14 and '03 750ml, '08 and ' 12 375ml and '04 Magnum on 10/7/2017 at Drie. '08 was the best, followed by '04, then '03, '14 and '12 was last although it was a great beer

Was a 2005 bottle

Look was a nice hazy typical geuze color.

Smell was funky and sour

Taste was very low carb, very sour, nice mouth feel very smooth funky notes in beginning to end. Little flat on the taste but was a good flat taste with oak and age coming through.

375 ml 2005. Maybe it was a little long in the tooth. Funk and apple juciy on the nose, not that sour but smooth. Still terrific mouthfeel. Had side by side with Whalezblood by Crooked stave and I thought that had more sourness and complexity. This was like an old funky cider that was just a little tart.
