Drie Fonteinen Oude Gueuze...
The Geuze Mariage Parfait (8 % alc) is a merge of soft lambic beer (95 %) with at least 3 years of age and young lambic beer (5 %). This young lambic provides viable yeast and fermentable sugars. The two beers are mixed in a container of 25,000 litres, after which it is clarified and kept cool. During bottling, the lambic gets back its fermentation temperature and undergoes a fermentation before maturing at a low temperature for at least six months. In order to know the bottling date of the Geuze Mariage Parfait, you have to deduct 20 years from the expiration date.
|BOON Gueuze Mariage Parfait has been elected best beer in the category "Belgian-Style Dark Sour Ale".
Elected by the International Beer Competition WBC(World Beer Cup) 2010.
This geuze pours a hazy orange gold color from a cork finished 375 ml bottle. Large sized white foamy head, with good long lasting lacing. Aroma is leather and must, sweet and sour with barnyard and horse blanket. A medium to full bodied geuze. Tart and funky flavors blended with barnyard and must. Some old books, apples, lemons and peaches. Despite all the funk, and this one is really funky, make no doubt about it, there is a nice malt backbone. Lively carbonation. A funky, tart and sout geuze, it is not as dry as the ‘regular’ geuze. Lots of stuff going on in this one. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is tart and funky.
