ide-by-side sample between 18/19 blends 121 and 117 .
This one pours clear, with more visible co2 (and bottle pressure) . Scent is fairly mild, compared. Funky, raw malts. Taste is indeed far more carbed, more dry. Acidity seems higher as well. Less on the aroma's, more fresh and vibrant. Easier geuze for the bigger audience, though less unique, and thus more forgeteable to me. Also too high carbed for my preference.
Side-by-side sample between 18/19 blends 121 and 117 .
This one pours clear blonde, seemingly (visually) softer carb, as well as less pressure on the bottle. Scent is very funky, expressive old oak / mushroomy, thin impressions, very aged-like , though it's still fairly young. Reminds me of an H.ertie. Taste is full, oaky, mushroom, bit bitter (more so than the average 3f) , intenser on the malts too. Nice geuze, very different to their usual offerings. Can see this being a hard one to enjoy for some.
26 December 2021. 75cl bottle, bottled 14/3/2015, shared by Pieter - many thanks!
Clear orange, thinning, white head. Aroma of ripe orange, apricot, oak, sherry, wet hay, barnyard, leather. Taste has sweetish-sour orange & plum, quite estery over funky straw & hay, bitter leather note too. 'Old' grassy hoppy finish, lingering tart, slightly bitter orange peel, funky with a dry and oaky sherry accent. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Still amazingly fruity, yet funky and tart of course.
Quite a big head. Quite subtle blend, mineral funk, soft lemon, dry cellar.... it's all there. Not too much wood or leaves. Under medium sour. Great!
