Brewer Description: (from bottle) In the summer of 2020, we received a few hundred kilos of beautiful Riesling grapes from Harth + Harth, a small organic winemaker from the wonderful Rheinhessen region in Germany. We macerated the full grapes with jonge lambik during five months on an ex-Bordeaux barrel. We blended with some 15-month oude lambik before bottling. The final fruit intensity clocks at 674 grams of grapes per litre of Druif. Of the used cereals for the lambikken, almost one quarter was sourced in Pajottenland. All lambikken were brewed by 3 Fonteinen. Thank you Henning and Harth family!
