Drie Fonteinen Golden Doejsel

Drie Fonteinen Belgium

From the brewer:

“A blend of one, two, three and four-year old lambic, fermented and matured in oak casks by wild yeasts carried on the open air. During re-fermentation the younger yeasts have inexplicably gone dormant – knocked off early for a long snooze, you might say – which halts the fermentation, assuring that you will taste the original flavors of the lambics in their purest form. Doesjel, in Flemish, means roughly, “Snoozer.” This Doesjel will pour without a foamy head, exactly like unblended lambic. Lambic is brewed from 60% barley malt, 40% unmalted wheat, hops and water.

For decades, Armand Debelder has worked a Geuze blender – as did his father – mixing young and old lambics from other lambic brewers to create the classic beer of Belgium. Recently, Armand has started brewing his own lambic. The 3 Fonteinen beers are among the very few traditional and authentic Geuzes and Lambics being made in Belgium today.”
