Aroma: 3F funkiness, sour, tart, barnyard, leather and lemon citrus.
Taste: Sour, tart, apple, farmyard, oak, grape, grapefruit and lemon juice.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: Another amazing gueuze from 3F. Perfect mouthfeel with wonderful matching aromas and taste. Must buy if you can find it!
