Brewer Description: (from bottle in Dutch) 3 Fonteinen Perzik wordt bekomen door de maceratie van handgeplukte en handmatig ontpitte perziken op jonge traditionele lambik, gedurende minstens vier maanden, in een verhouding van één kilo perziken per liter. Daarna wordt de fruitlambik verder geassembleerd met jonge lambik en wordt alles gebotteld en zet de vergisting zich verder in de fles. Deze Perzik is een verfijnde fruitlambik met uitbundige aroma’s van steenvruchten. De perziken zijn afkomstig van Ludo Rosseels, één van de laatste, zoniet de laatste Belgische perzikenteler. Natuurlijk fruit, zonder toevoeging van sappen, siropen, of suikers. Ongefilterd en ongepasteuriseerd.

Voor deze specifieke witte perzikenlambik werden de varieteiten Late Amsden (80%) en Floerkes (20%) gebruikt en gedurende 5 maanden gemacereerd op 3 Fonteinen lambik in een eikenhouten vat. De finale fruitintensiteit bedraagt 444 gram perziken per liter witte perzikenlambik.

(translated to English) 3 Fonteinen Peach is obtained by maceration of hand-picked and manually pitted peaches on young traditional lambic, for at least four months, at a ratio of one kilo of peaches per liter. Then the fruit lambic is further assembled with young lambic and everything is bottled and the fermentation continues in the bottle. This Peach is a refined fruit lambic with exuberant aromas of stone fruits. The peaches come from Ludo Rosseels, one of the last, if not the last Belgian peach grower. Natural fruit, without the addition of juices, syrups, or sugars. Unfiltered and unpasteurized.

For this particular white peach lambic, the Late Amsden (80%) and Floerkes (20%) varieties were used and macerated for 5 months on 3 Fonteinen lambic in an oak barrel. The final fruit intensity is 444 grams of peaches per liter of white peach lambic.

Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, blend°26, season 18/19, bottled on 21st December 2018. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy golden orange colour with pretty much no head and no lacing.
Aroma: Peach, oak, light funk, leather, with notes of wheat, lemon and honey.
Taste: Sour, tart, peach, lemonade, oak, light funk.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with soft to no carbonation.
Overall: Aroma and flavours were good, but the lack of carbonation doesn’t really work for me, and so I preferred blend°24 Perzik Wit Vroege Amsden a lot more.
