09/2015 - So minerally, oaky, lightly floral, and full of funk on the nose; more minerality, funk, and barnyard on the palate; the body is pillowy, effervescent, flavorful, and clean; wow!

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.
