3 Fonteinen Oude Gueze Golden Blend is a blend of one-two-three-and at least 25% four-year-old lambics, fermented and aged in the bottle. 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 int he blending process, a variety of barrel sizes and shapes, differences in aged lambic proportions, etc. When cellared properly. 3 Fonteinen Oude Gueze Golden Blend can be aged for several decades. Traditional lambic is living, cultural heritage rooted in the Zenne valley! Unfiltered and unpasteurised.
