Notes/Commercial Description:
This listing refers ONLY to beers that explicitly say "Vintage" on the label. These currently date from 2002 onwards, and feature either the red label ("Nightlights" by Felix de Boeck) or the word Vintage printed directly below the words Oude Gueuze as in the profile picture.

This is NOT for old vintages of the standard Oude Geuze.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Bottled in 2005.

Is this geuze? It pours the color of the setting sun and smells like a bowl of tropical fruit. Tangerines, grapefruit, nectarines.. this could be an IPA were it not for the acidity.

And there is plenty of that. It's dry and sour, with carbonation that is borderline effervescent. The CO2 is what I don't like about Drie Fonteinen's standard Oude Geuze, but in this case it's just right; more sparkling than spritzy.

After two 375 ml bottles I can say with confidence that yes, this is geuze alright.
