This was the 2003 vintage, I did a side by side tonight with a 2010 modern drie fonteinen geuze.
It looks basically exactly the same as the modern one, actually the vintage has a better head though.
The taste & smell of the new one are both what I would describe as 'sharper', more apple tartness, the vintage has more of a sugary oaky smell profile with some subtle apple tartness.
The mouthfeel on the vintage is amazing, it makes the modern one seem like water. Its got a long lingering tartness. So funky, lots of barrel, just covers the mouth, greatness.
Overall, they are both good beers, glad I got to do a side by side, its not 'radically' different than the modern, so don't expect that, but there is a notable difference.
