4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
375 green bottle, corked. Green label. Bottled on 03/11/21. A very carbonated bottle, one of the loudest cork pops I’ve heard in 10yrs of opening Belgian beers... had a full turn left on the cage when it decided to go, no idea where the cork ended up, the cage came down 3 seconds later. It pours golden with haze. Huge nosiy head upon first pour. It dies down to an even covering of fine bubbles, more head retention that I’ve seen from most geuzes. Tart nose, lemons, green apples, assorted funk. Big sourness in the mouth, notes of lemons, white grapes, grapefruits. Dry and quenching finish, oaky, touches of straw. Sour lemony aftertaste on the lips. Very bubbly, tingly on the tongue. Highly satisfying.

Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. 2010 Vintage 750 mL bottle. The pour is a nice foggy golden yellow with a larger white head that leaves some wonderful lace. The aroma is definitely sour. Lots of tart lemon and a little bit of cherry. The taste is very acidic. There again is the good tart sourness throughout with lemon and a hint of cherry. There is a little wood in the background on this as well. The mouth feel is decent. It hangs around enough, and the carbonation could be toned down just a hint. It’s damn good. There is a lingeringly sour, fruity aftertaste that is really good. Glad I got to enjoy this one!

375 ml, bottled 01/2010, shared by Werckmeister. Thanks Stefan!
Deep amber, clear body, with a small, creamy, bit lacing, off-white head.
Complex aroma of barrel notes, various sour fruits, dried fruits, cherries, some sweat, some sweetness.
Taste is also complex, but more sour, tart and dry, with wood, lots of sour fruits and lovely, sweet barrel notes from the background.
Medium mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sour, medium dry, wooden, fruity.
Very tasty! Perfectly balanced, very complex and not all about the sourness, but also a lot of lovely barrel notes, that I like a lot. The Gueuze style isn’t my favourite sour style normally, but this is just how I like my sour beer.

Bottle aged 1.5 years. Very sour nose of acetate, hay, pine wood, and clean finish. Leave me puckering a little bit.

Tart and funky but still so drinkable and refreshing. This is simply just the epitome of a great geuze. Complex if you want it to be - easily drinkable if you want it to be. 3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze is your bitch.

Bottle from Cotteridge wines. Slightly hazy golden beer with small head. Aroma of funk, citrus and some oak. Taste is funk, cheese, citrus, yeast and a moderate amount of dry sourness. Lovely carbonation on the tongue and a zing. Excellent, world class.
