Drie Fonteinen is the only remaining traditional geuze blender in Belgium, using only 100% spontaneously fermented lambic beer, aged in oak casks, with no artificial sweeteners or other additives. The blendery is connected to the very popular Drie Fonteinen Restaurant in Beersel, on the outskirts of Brussels. The proprietor, Armand Debelder, buys pure lambic from three breweries in Belgium, ages them in oak, and blends them, employing the skill, knowledge, and supreme passion for real geuze that his father handed down to him.
Drie Fontenein’s Geuze and fruit Lambics (cherry, raspberry) are rare, highly prized, and indisputably among the best of Belgium. We have been begging Armand for years to send us some of his exquisite Geuze and Kriek. He always says the same thing, “I am ready only when I know that I have something very, very special for you.” Suddenly, this spring, he called and announced, “I have it.”
