Was lucky enough to stumble upon this one at a recent share in San Francisco for the Super Bowl! Tough to track down but worth the wait! Nice and tart yet very drinkable!

375ml bottle from 2010 vintage drank in Nov 2015. Drank at room temperature and poured into a 3F stemmed glass. Hard to imagine an improvement on the regular Oude Geuze from 3F, but this one delivers. Everything is more subtle and complex than the regular and there is a much deeper golden color. I'm really glad I was able to pick this one up from 3F. Could easily drink only this beer for the rest of my life.
