3 Fonteinen- Oude Geuze (season 18|19) Blend No. 52
This particular Oude Geuze has been blended with lambics from 10 different barrels and originating from 8 different brews. The oldest portion in this blend is a four-year old Boon lambic brewed on the 11th of May 2015. This blends consists of 50% young lambic and 50% old lambic of at least 3 years old. As such, the average age of this blend was 21 months on the moment of bottling.
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!
