A Note on This Beer
Today marks a momentous occasion in Tavour history.
We don’t know when — or if — we’ll be able to get 3 Fonteinen’s definitive Oude Geuze ever again. We’ve been pulling strings for years trying to secure this world-class Belgian Lambic — save for a few bottles floating around Portland, Oregon and Los Angeles, it’s damn near impossible to find it outside Belgium.
This is a rare chance to taste one of the only genuine Belgian Lambics, crafted by one of the only true Lambic producers in existence. And as the #10 Ranked Lambic in the World, it’s an absolute must-have for any craft lover’s collection.
The reason Oude Geuze is so revered is because it’s a living, breathing creature. When cellared properly, it can be aged for several decades, the flavors changing and evolving into unmatchable depths over time.
When enjoyed fresh, Oude Geuze presents itself on the palate with tart green apple, lemon zest, peach skins, and notes of herbal spice cut by lively champagne-like carbonation.
When aged for several years, the bright, acidic citrusy profile transforms into stone fruit, spicy oak, grassy notes from whole leaf aged hops, and unparalleled leagues of earthy funk.
The flavors achieved in Oude Geuze from spontaneous fermentation, blending 3 different Lambic vintages, and extended maturation in oak casks simply cannot be imitated. This is a beer to savor down to the very last drop.
We couldn’t be more excited to share this rare opportunity with the Tavour community — now you can get your hands on a true bucket list beer that many craft fans spend years trying to track down.
