3 Fonteinen Brouwerij Ambachtelijke Geuzestekerij Oude Geuze Cuvée Armand & Gaston Gueuze at 5.5% ABV (C$16.08 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 375 ml, packaged on 27-Jan-2017, best before 26-Oct-2037, acquired 23-Feb-2018, reviewed 20-Jun-2018)

Appearance: hazy pale amber with two fingers of fluffy ivory head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: complex, horseblankety funk, green apple, oak, leather, tobacco. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate funky tart, low bitter, hint of brine. (9/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively carbonation, dry funky tart finish. (5/5)

Visually somewhat darker than the base Oude Geuze, but the aroma and flavours, though slightly darker, aren’t otherwise that much different. It’s not clearly better than the regular version, but it is slightly different, so that’s gotta count for something, right? (18/20)
