COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze Honing is a blend of one-, two-, and three-year old lambics. The wort of the old lambic has been infused with local organic honey, during its nightly cool-down process on the coolship. Spontaneous fermentation, patient maturation in oak barrels, and continued evolution of the ecosystem in the bottle result in a distinctively complex and elegant natural beer.  Lambic and Geuze are living, cultural heritage rooted in the Zenne valley! Taste, savour, enjoy, and experience this unfiltered, unpasteurised, and unadulterated beer with friends new and old! Bottled January 12th 2015

@ Lambik-o-droom. Very nice citric aroma. Very lively carbonation. Taste is citric countered by a mild sweetness at the back. Nevertheless very sour. Nice funk. Green apples, lemon zest and mellow melon. Palate is very creamy for a gueze, puckering. Aftertaste complex.

Bottle @ droom. Pours almost clear amber with a white head. Aroma of the classic 3 font funk along with some floral notes, dry champagne, slight whiffs of wild honey as ir warms. Also some gentle sulfur, minerals, lemon and overall pretty dry. Taste is dry and has the flassic Fontainen funk, dry grapes, weak champagne, floral notes, lemon, lime peel and earthy notes. Smooth and yet sparkling and dry body. Awesome gueuze!

neongolden (2066) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2017
(750ml bottle @ Himmeriget, Dec 15/17) Aroma is beautifully juicy and floral, clearly a 3F OG but with a thick layer contributed by the honey, sitting on top of the normal notes of citrus peels, lime acidity, hint of apple, lots of hay, moderately heavy oak, classic 3F barnyard-ish funk but it's not as prominent as usual under the honey. Flavour is a little sweeter than typical OG, again there's a combination of citrus, pit fruit, honey and floral notes at the core, plenty of hay, moderate to high barrel quality with soft tannins and a little vanilla, sweet at the core with light to moderate tartness, drying towards the back end, more prominent barrel, dusty cellar funk with just a little barnyard. Lingering tart floral finish. Medium bodied, slightly high but mouth-filling champagne effervescence. Gorgeous, I can see how the honey might detract for some but I thought this was a lovely take on the regular OG. Somehow delicate but not subtle...
