16/17 version. Fairly hazy golden color with a frothy white head the settled quickly. Bright complex aroma with hay, grass, lemons, and wood. As expected, the complexity was there on the palate. Fairly sour lemon giving way to wine, oak, funk, and bleu cheese. High carbonation and dry on the finish. Outstanding.

Last night I had 3 fonteinen Oude Geuze a Gueuze from Brouwerij Drie (3) Fonteinen, Belgium, ABV 6.00%. Gueuze are sours but tend to be drier, more intense and tart than regular Lambiks, and it is true for this one too. However, despite its dryness this one comes out very nicely like a nice dry wine, and the tartness is not aggressive, just pleasantly pronounced. If you don't mind tartness it is really great.

Look: Hazy golden thick white head

Aroma: lemon, apple, white wine

Taste: It is quite tart and dry, green apples, lemon, grapefruit, oak barrel and white wine, just right.

Feel: light to medium body

Gold pour smaller head, lively carbonation. Aroma and taste is musty, citrus, white grape, green apple, light funk, yeast. Lighter to medium body.
