A true Geuze. A blend of 1, 2, and 3 year-old lambic unfiltered and unpasteurized and aged in the bottle for at least 6 months after blending. Continued fermentation in the bottle give this Geuze its famous champagne-like spritziness. The lambic that goes into it is brewed only with 60% barley malt, 40% unmalted wheat, aged hops, and water, spontaneously fermented by wild yeasts, and matured in oak casks.

3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze is a blend of one-, two-, and three-year old lambics. Spontaneous fermentation, patient maturation in oak barrels, and continued evolution of the ecosystem in the bottle result in a distinctively complex and elegant natural beer. No two bottlings are alike, as there are multiple variables in the blending process, a variety of barrel sizes and shapes, differences in aged lambic proportions in the blend, etc. When cellared properly, 3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze can be aged for several decades. The aromas and flavours will evolve from notes of vibrant fresh citrus, zesty and grassy notes to a mellow, oaky, stone fruit bouquet as the lambic continues to develop with time. Lambic and Geuze are living, cultural heritage rooted in the Zenne valley! Taste, savour, enjoy and experience this bottle fermented, unfiltered, unpasteurised and unadulterated beer with friends new and old!

26 December 2021. 75cl bottle, bottled 14/3/2015, shared by Pieter - many thanks!

Clear orange, thinning, white head. Aroma of ripe orange, apricot, oak, sherry, wet hay, barnyard, leather. Taste has sweetish-sour orange & plum, quite estery over funky straw & hay, bitter leather note too. 'Old' grassy hoppy finish, lingering tart, slightly bitter orange peel, funky with a dry and oaky sherry accent. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Still amazingly fruity, yet funky and tart of course.

Bottled 31/10/2015. Soft pop, but big amount of carbonation when pouring. Biiig funky smell, loads of goat. Taste is even more funky, loads of old wood, tons of straw and cheese rind. Just a hint of dried apple, and a tiny bit of acidity. Aged well!
