COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of New Morning and 18 month aged 3 Fonteinen Lambic refined for at least 12 months in bottle. It has a surprisingly citrus nose of leather, cellar and animal with hints of dried flowers and honey. Lasting and sapid in the mouth with a sour finish that always makes the lovers of this blend smile.
This beer could very well make you develop an addiction for spontaneous fermentation and turn your entire world upside down!

After a mechanical breakdown, 3 Fonteinen Brewery of Beersel (possibly the best Lambic blender in the world) had economic damage in the summer of 2009. The news caused such a stir in the International beer movement that I called Armand to know how things were. As he needed to sell his Lambic, I immediately got inspired to blend our New Morning with his beer. We selected three 18 month old Lambic barrels that we siphoned in a small tank on our truck. The journey back was long and hard, myself and Manuel took turns driving through Belgium, France and Italy only stopping for gas. After days hand bottling and months of maturation, the outcome has gone over and beyond our expectations and we can say with pride that it was worth it!

On tap, "Birraio dell’anno 2015", ObiHall Firenze. Colore giallo scarico e torbido, con accenno di schiuma bianca. Naso citrico, erba d’estate, fiori secchi, torba fresca umida, aia di campagna e coperta di cavallo. Carbonazione vivace e aspetto un po’ stile saison. Trama fra watery e oleosa. Acidità equina poco duratura ma inizialmente acuta, con sorprendente recupero salino. Piccole note dolci e stemperate di miele. Finale di beva rotondo ma secco, estremamente fresco e galvanizzante. Ottima birra acida originata da un blend con una lambic belga di 3 Fonteinen invecchiata 18 mesi e lasciata rifinire almeno 12 mesi in bottiglia, con interessanti aspetti salini tipici di una gose e un mood un po’ funky stile farmhouse ale.

Absolutbeerginer (51) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Une sour ale d’une rare complexité. Nez à la fois animal et fruité (fraise, agrumes) et végétal (herbes aromatiques). En bouche, la Beersel Morning offre un véritable voyage gustatif. Des arômes de fines herbes, printanières, se transforment en arômes de levures sauvages, de viande,..le tout sur un fond acide qui offre équilibre et fraîcheur. La finale relativement longue est acide. Très agréable à (re)boire.

Fra fat på ØST, del Ducato krankupp jan-16, sammen ned Ovesen: lett uklar dyp gylden med ok skum (litt kniplinger og film). Granskudd, furunål, honning og gjær i aroma. Ingen gjær i smaken, her finner jeg nevnte granskudd og furunål, aprikos, sitron, mandler og honning. Mykere og mer kompleks enn de to foregående (Chrysopolis og Vieille vieille). Avlsutningen er balansert med en fin honningsødme.
