Brewery: Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen
Style: Lambic – Fruit
Other Notes: Blend°50, Season 20/21
Brewer Description: (from bottle) For this Druif, we macerated Limburg grown Souvignier Gris grapes on one- and quite a lot of our own two-year old lambik. The maceration took more than seven months. The lambikken in this bottle originate from two different barrels and three different brews. The weighted average age of this blend upon bottling is eighteen months. A small portion of the lambik was brewed with Belgian cereals. The final fruit intensity is 353 grams of fruit per litre of Druif.

Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, blend°50, season 20/21, bottled on 31st May 2021. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A nice golden orange colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly, while leaving only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Lightly tart, funky, dusty, wood, grape skin, vinous, lemon, lime.
Taste: Sour, tart, white wine grapes, vinous, lemon juice, grapefruit, oak, with some light funky notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: Easy to drink, but the sourness feels stronger and more intense than other 3 Fonteinen fruit lambics that I’ve tried.
