4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ S&B - Pours dark yellow - Aroma of wood, farmyard funk, some floral notes. Taste is typically gueuze but a bit too edgy (needs some more ageing). Quite liked the dry finish. The body is light, flavours are tart and citrussy.

10th May 2012
Bottle shared at Sour & Bitter. Hazy amber beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Nice fresh feel about this one, less of the woody dry sourness (although it’s there underneath) more white wine and a whisper of vanilla. Dry finish. Easily the best of 3 Fonteinen beers I tried tonight.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Sour&Bitter Copenhagen. Bottle looks good, very similar to the regular Geuze. Beer in the glass golden-cloudy, huge head. Fruity, mild-sourish aroma. Starts intense sour, dry, modest fruity hints. Light salty notes. Finish less sour and less fruity, dry. Quite drinkable for a geuze. Fruity aftertaste like apricot, mild-sour. Very good!
