Reddish orange with a big fluffy off white head. Smells musty, funky, moldy with crisp Granny Smith apples. Tastes acidic and tart with a Bleu cheese and Granny Smith apples. This is a pretty great beer.

I've had several vintages of Drie Fonteinen Geuze now... and curiously enough, Armand and Gaston is not my favorite of those.

It's interesting how much apple taste and aroma there is to this beer. It's quite dry, but the funk is a bit more subdued than in other 3 Fonteinen geuzes. I'm okay with that, but it makes it sort of a flat, one-note beer. There's just no real dimension to it. It improves as it warms, but never really knocks me out. Unfortunate, given how much I gave in trade for this bottle.

I'll try again some day, with an older vintage (assuming I can find one). Fingers crossed that I was just drunk, and plain old wrong.

375ml bottle of Assemblage 21, darker than a '17 Oude Geuze I drank a week or so ago. Massive head. Delicious flavor, slightly sour. If you like geuze and you like Drie Fonteinen you will love this.
