3 Fonteinen Druif Muscat Bleu

Brewery: Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen
Country: Belgium
ABV: 8%
Style: Lambic – Fruit
Other Notes: Blend°47, Season 19/20

Brewer Description: (from bottle) For this Druif, we used Muscat Bleu grapes from Wijndomein Hoenshof in Hoepertingen, Haspengouw region, Flanders. Muscat Bleu is a hybrid wine and table grape and has its origins in Switzerland. We macerated the grape must with four different lambics from two different barrels. We let it macerate for five months and blended the grape lambic with another three young lambics prior to bottling. The final fruit intensity is 38.1% of grape must per litre of Druif Muscat Bleu. 100% 3 Fonteinen.

Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, blend°47, season 19/20, bottled on 25th February 2020. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A nice light ruby red colour with an almost two finger off white head that had pretty good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Lightly tart, grape skin, grapes, vinous, lemon zest, oak, funk, and a touch floral.
Taste: Lightly tart, grape skin, vinous, red berries, grapefruit zest, oak, light funk.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Enjoyable and easy to drink, but for 3 Fonteinen and Muscat Bleu, I preferred Druivenlambik Muscat Bleu (specifically Blend°55, Season 19/20) more.
