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!

Patjeadam (55) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2014
A spicy lambic that first has some sour tones, then the spices, followed by fruit that grows in taste after the first sips, the finish is bitter. This is a beer that demands a slow taste, and demands your complete tongue. Somehow it reminded me of a champagne like beer, saisonminded but more spicy. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Lo spirito e il corpo del buon vecchio lambic sembrano trovarsi a loro agio nella terra emiliana. L’equilibrio di questo prodotto è davvero perfetto: l’acidità è preservata nella sua forma avvolgente e trascina con sé un’insieme di note fruttate molto varie che accendono in bocca una primavera di gusti. Un abbraccio tra due paesi e due stili che commuove!
