3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze Cuvée Armand & Gaston is a blend of one-, two-, and three-year old traditional lambics, all brewed at Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen. Spontaneous fermentation, patient maturation in oak barrels, and continued evolution in the bottle result in a distinctively complex 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, etc. This cuvée, like all of our lambic, is 100% natural, authentic, spontaneously fermented, and crafted with steadfast adherence to tradition, like Armand and Gaston Debelder have always done it. This geuze has fermented in the bottle and will continue to develop its tastes and aromas over its long life when properly cellared. Traditional Lambic is living, cultural heritage rooted in the Zenne valley! Taste, savour, enjoy, and experience this unfiltered, unpasteurised, and unadulterated beer with friends new and old!

Hazy orange with a big lively but short lived off white head. Aroma has a lovely big 3 Fonteinen cellar funk with a beautiful oak character, cobwebs, fruity notes, a little malt and soft citrus. Flavour is above light sweet and moderate sour. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. (75cl bottle, dated 06/10/2015)

Bottle. Quite dark color, golden to light amber. Funk, citrus, dry funk, deep old cellar and some fresh wood. Nice blend, not too sour and quite refreshing.

Bottled. Dry and funky with loads of oak and some citrus. Quite harsh blend with brett, green gooseberries and some yoghurt. Lively carbonation. Not the best A&G Blend now, but could improve with age.

Semi-hazy amber pour with an off-white head with very good retention. Notes of unripe stonefruit, mineral funk, green apple, wood, subtle sherry. Beautiful stuff.

Lovely blend with wet grass, autumn apples and citrus. Light funk undertone and some nuttiness in the finish. Excellent.
