3 Fonteinen Brouwerij Ambachtelijke Geuzestekerij Oude Geuze Golden Blend – Gueuze at 6% ABV

3 Fonteinen Brouwerij Ambachtelijke Geuzestekerij Oude Geuze – Golden Blend Gueuze at 6% ABV (C$9.00 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 375 ml, packaged on 17-Feb-2011, best before 1-Feb-2021, acquired 1-Dec-2013, reviewed 27-Jun-2018)

Appearance: hazy pale amber with no head or lacing. (3/5) Aroma: complex, horseblankety funk, green apples, figs, dry white wine. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate funky tart, low bitter, hint of brine. (9/10) Palate: medium-light body, flat carbonation, dry funky tart finish. (4/5)

I was a little disappointed that another one of these has lost carbonation. It’s not fatal, by any means, and I’m detecting no hint of oxidation, but the absence of the champagne-like carbonation certainly slightly reduces my enjoyment. I’m really tempted to say this is nearly identical to the Golden Doesjel, and might have to pull another of those out of my cellar right away for a back-to-back comparison. (17/20)
