Corked and caged 375ml poured into my Boulevard Smokestack goblet. This beer pours a hazy bruised orange with a massive 3 inch cap that leaves sticky lacing down the sides of the glass. A good 1/2 inch head sticks around the the entirety of the pour. The aroma is fantastic. At first whiff fresh oak comes through with citric fruit tanginess and just a bit of barnyard funk. Surprisingly just a hint of vanilla comes through at the very tail of the nose. I can only imagine it comes from the oak. The flavor is very balanced. Citric tartness hits the back of the jaw, reminding me of fresh grapefruit mixed with pineapple sweetness. Musty barnyard combined with fresh oak. The mouthfeel is much creamier then most gueuzes but it finishes dryly like any good gueuze. Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze is quite a bit different then most gueuzes I've had. While different, its still extremely tasty.
