STYLE Oude Gueze
Juicy - Lime Zest - Stone Fruit
3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze Golden Blend is a blend of one-, two-, three-and at least 25% four-year old lambics. Spontaneous fermentation, patient maturation in oak barrels, and continued evolution in the bottle result in a distinctively complex beer. Its juicy but dry has a vinous quality with layers of fruit rind and stone fruit.
One of our favourites and a good one to drink around the fire with a hearty meal.
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. When cellared properly, 3 Fonteinen Golden Blend can be aged for several decades. Traditional lambic is living, cultural heritage rooted in the Zenne valley! Bottle fermented, unfiltered and unpasteurised.

CHEESE & FOOD PAIRING
Pair this with an evening roast - and if your veggie a nut roast is perfect.
We love this with an aged cheddar like Keens.
