Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze Golden Blend stands as a testament to the rich history and expertise of Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen, located in Beersel, Belgium. This particular blend is notable for being the first commercially released geuze that incorporates a four-year-old lambic, adding to its depth and complexity.

The journey of the Golden Blend began with its first batch released in early 2012, bottled the previous year. This initial release was presented in 375ml bottles and had two distinct labels – one tailored for the U.S market and another for global distribution. A fascinating tidbit is that a portion of the lambic used for this blend's four-year-old component was salvaged from the thermostat incident, showcasing the brewery's resilience and commitment to quality.

Subsequent batches, such as the one bottled in March 2014, continued the tradition of blending one-, two-, three-, and four-year-old lambics. Some initial descriptions even hinted at a five-year-old lambic in the mix. However, the oldest lambic was confirmed to be around four to five years old at the time of blending and bottling.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Pours a hazy golden-orange hue with a frothy white head that lingers.
  • Aroma: A complex bouquet of barnyard funk, green apple, citrus zest, and a hint of oak.
  • Flavour: Tart and tangy upfront, with notes of lemon, green apple, and white grape. The oak aging imparts subtle vanilla and woody undertones, complemented by a mild earthy funk.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with lively carbonation, leading to a dry, crisp finish.

The Golden Blend has seen various releases over the years, with each batch reflecting the brewery's dedication to preserving the authentic taste and quality of lambic beers. As of the 2017 bottling, the Golden Blend continues to be a regular release, much to the delight of beer enthusiasts worldwide.

For those keen on exploring the nuances of this blend, it's worth noting that the small amount of four-year-old lambic left after crafting the first batch was bottled and unveiled at the Sour and Bitter Festival in 2012. This release, known as the 3 Fonteinen Oude Lambiek (4 Year Old), remains the only unblended lambic by Armand available to the public.

In conclusion, the Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze Golden Blend is more than just a beer; it's a celebration of tradition, craftsmanship, and passion. Whether you're a seasoned beer lover or a newcomer eager to explore, this blend promises an unforgettable experience. So, don't wait any longer – purchase online or in-store now and embark on a flavourful journey.
