3 Fonteinen / Oude Gueze Cuvée: Armand & Gaston / Three Bottle Set

Three blends from the world renowned 3 Fonteinen, Beersel.

Decades of experience. Three extraordinary blends:

Oude Geuze Cuvée Armand & Gaston
Oude Geuze Cuvée Armand & Gaston Vintage 2017
Oude Geuze Five Barrel Blend

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. Savour, and enjoy.


Oude Geuze Cuvée Armand & Gaston 
A blend of one-, two-, and three-year old traditional lambics. Spontaneous fermentation, patient maturation in oak barrels, and continued evolution in the bottle result in a distinctively complex beer. 

Oude Geuze Cuvée Armand & Gaston Vintage 2017
“Do not sell” Was the very explicit message that can be found on our tasting notes from July 2017 about Cuvée Armand & Gaston blend 19 from the season 16|17. Of course we meant that we were so impressed by it’s character that we wanted to tuck it away to eventually release as a Vintage. So here it is. Geuze from 5 different barrels and 5 different brews.The oldest brew is from January 17, 2014 and was actually intended for Straffe Winter (but again forgotten). The weighted average age of this gueuze is approximately five years at the launch of this bottle. 

Oude Geuze Five Barrel Blend
This particular Oude Geuze has been blended with lambics from 5 different barrels (of which one an amontillado barrel) and originating from 7 different brews. The old lambic, from two barrels and two brews, accounts for 40% of the blend and the oldest portion was brewed on 12th of January 2016. Weighted average age of the blend upon bottling was 19 months. 

Brewed, Blended and Bottled in Beersel, Belgium.
