Brouwerij Drie Fonteinen "Cuvée Armand & Gaston" Oude Geuze, Belgium (750ml)

SKU #1274317 98 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is wheat-forward, with a soft, country malt aroma that is like getting lost in a vast field shortly before harvest. It is blended from seven different Lambic barrels and aged in oak. This was bottled in September 2017 and the brewery says it is best enjoyed before October 2038. Good luck waiting that long. The intangibles of this beer will have the mind racing and lulled by its grace at the same time. *Top 5 Beers of 2021* (JH) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

K&L Notes

Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze Cuvée Armand & Gaston is a geuze released in 2016 that consists of lambic brewed by 3 Fonteinen in 2013, 2014, and 2015. The oldest lambic in the blend is some of the first lambic brewed on the new 40-hectoliter brewing system installed in the same year. 99 points from Beer Advocate, which shares this note from the brewery: "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 in the blending process, a variety of barrel sizes and shapes, differences in aged lambic proportions, etc. This cuvée, like all of our lambic, is 100% natural, authentic, spontaneously fermented, and crafted with steadfast adherence to tradition, like Armand and Gaston Debelder have always done it. This geuze has fermented in the bottle and will continue to develop its tastes and aromas over its long life when properly cellared. Traditional Lambic is living, cultural heritage rooted in the Zenne valley!"
