3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze is a true Geuze - a masterful blend of 1, 2, and 3 year-old lambic (spontaneously fermented by wild yeasts, and matured in oak casks), unfiltered and unpasteurized, and aged in the bottle for at least a year after blending. Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen employs the skill, knowledge, and supreme passion for real geuze that Armand Debelder and his father Gaston used to build the brewery's reputation from 1953 to 2019.

Refermentation in the bottle gives this Geuze its famous champagne-like spritziness. Golden-orange in color, its dry, fruity, intense, and complex aroma and flavor make it unforgettable.

Bottling date: 13 MAR 19. Best before: 26 OCT 39. These bottles are the 52nd blend of the 2018-2019 season, blended with lambics from 10 different barrels and originating from 8 different brews. Properly stored, it will only get better and better over its lifetime.

3 Fonteinen is a lambic brewer and blender in Beersel, Belgium, founded in the 1880s and operated by the Debelder family from 1953 to 2019. 3 Fonteinen is currently headed by Michaël Blanquaert and Werner Van Obberghen after a nearly 6 year transition that began in 2014.

In Dutch, 3 Fonteinen means "three fountains" and originally referred to the hand pumps that were used to serve the three types of beer at the inn: lambic, faro, and kriek.

In addition to lambics, 3 Fonteinen also produces several other non-lambic beers including a blonde, lager, porter, and witbier.
