Thank you! Not sure what I did wrong there. Nice haul by the way, what vintage are those red labels? I've had a bitch of a time finding any '08 OGV 750s.
EDIT: In that vein, this is what I brought back from Europe:
I'm still ISO OGV, by the way. CANNOT GET ENOUGH. (The one on the left is "homebrew" fruit lambic made with Cantillon's lambic.)
I think you used the photobucket URL instead of the picture URL. Your picture used: http://s1209.photobucket.com/albums...210A84BD_zps51456249.jpg&evt=user_media_shareThank you!

The '08 OGV is one of my favorite beers right now. And I agree with this; it has a touch more bright lemony citrus acidity than most 3F gueuze.Yeahnatenelson opened up some '08 awhile back, it was fantastic. A little brighter than your typical 3F though from what I remember.
I opened a 2001 just over a year ago with some buddies and I thought it was really good. I'd suggest asking Shaggs, but he probably wouldn't remember it since he spilled his entire pour all over himself, then tried to blame the dog. Maybe he could agree that it smelled good?Consistency and longevity might not be De Cam's strong suit though. The 2000 Oude Geuze we had recently was pretty bland.
2002 is a whale, 2003-2005 is a bit hard to track down, 2006-2008 is easier. All are really amazing. Stay away from the synthetic corks (I think they're only in 2005-2006).So who can give me the run down of 3F OGV? I haven't tried hunting any. What's the story?
My understanding is that it's a blend of the best lambics he gets, and then it's aged for longer to make sure it develops right. '08 is the most recent batch, came out last year, which I think is a typical lag.So who can give me the run down of 3F OGV? I haven't tried hunting any. What's the story?
