750ml into a CS snifter.

A- golden apple color. darker than most gueuze. This bottle poured a lot of head with medium retention. Finger width head dissipated to 1/4" within 5 minutes. Frothy head.

S- Lots of funk, barnyard, yeast, hay, some citrus in the background. Earthy grainy. This smells like a top notch gueuze. I am getting granny smith apple skin.

T- This tastes like a well crafted gueuze. Lots of barnyard funk taste going on here with a pleasant citrus note toward the back. This one was blended very well. This one almost makes you sneeze drinking it. This is behind lente, maybe tied with golden blend for me as far as how well it is crafted.

M- Very good on M. The lack of retention keeps the suds going down your throat. pretty thick for a gueuze (that does not mean a lot).

O- Very well crafted. The citrus note on the backend makes this gueuze. If this beer did not have that, it would be slightly above average. Another well crafted gueuze coming out of the 3F camp. Well done Armand!

Hazy orange-yellow pour with a healthy cap of foamy white head that receded to a more manageable level, but never sank to less than a ringlet; moderate lacing on the glass. Aroma of musty citrus and earthy funk, somehow dirty and clean at the same time, cobwebs and wet grass. This was all reflected in the taste, musty, grassy, earthy, nice notes of lemon zest, 7Up, cobwebs and wet cardboard, with a perky acidity/sourness that was not too intense, and a slight bittering finish and earthy reprise. Complex and well-balanced, one of the better gueuzes I've had. Medium body, medium carbonation appropriate for the style, crisp, prickly mouthfeel. Great gueuze overall. Need more somehow.

Consumed 7/2017

Lively beer. Carbonated. Golden orange color.

Incredible gueuze. Funky and notes that remind me of Zenne. Stone fruit notes. Wet oak. 3F funk. Lemon citrus. Dusty and basement must. Very complex.

This has a nice lively feel. Light bodied.

I enjoyed this much more with a few years on it.

Again, joefuzz killed it at our tasting with this beer. The good time just kept on rolling.

Holy shit this beer is funky! From the murky appearance to the stable aromas once the cork was popped, this is a very unique beer.

Seriously, joefuzz said it best when he smelled it and proclaimed "Yeah, this smells just like a foot." It really does people. Totally different from the other geuzes that night, which had more fruit and sweetness. This has hardly any sweetness and instead is filled with a vinegary, funky, lemony tartness both in the aroma and on the palate. It even has just a little 'dankness' to it that I picked up on. Either way, this is probably the definition on what Belgian brewers can do with their yeast to create a funky-ass beer.

One of the most memorable beers so far and glad I got to try it!
