3 Fonteinen was founded in about 1887 as a café and geuzestekerij, a place where geuze is produced by blending old and new lambics, acquired from other breweries. The enterprise was bought by Gaston De Belder in 1953, who expanded it with a restaurant and left it to his sons Armand and Guido in 1982. In 1998, a brewery installation was bought. Apart from using its own lambic, 3 Fonteinen uses lambic made by Boon, Girardin and Lindemans for its geuze. 3 Fonteinen is one of the few remaining geuzestekerijen.
Oude Geuze 3 Fountains is a completely natural geuze consisting of an assembly of 1, 2 and 3 years old lambic aged in oak barrels.
These labels is a natural, unfiltered beer that undergoes secondary fermentation spontaneously at least 6 months even after bottling on the bottle.
Oude Geuze 3 Fountains can be stored up to 10 years in a stable, cool cellar after bottling date. Oude Geuze, long preserved in terms of acidity is softened but gets more complex taste tests.
