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!

Theydon_Bois (8327) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle at the Croydonia Tasting, 13/07/13 - massive thanks to Manuele for digging this out of his cellar (s) for me! Hazy orange amber with little in the way of a roof! Nose is tarte fruits, funky, bitter soured mandarins, lemon rind, straw, barnyard. Taste comprises light yeast notes, sour orange, farmy, funky, grassy, dank citrus drenched fencepost. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, soured fruity finish. Decent sour, not too intense, eminently drinkable affair.

Scopey (6719) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle, many thanks to Colin! It pours cloudy golden-orange with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, stone fruit, orange tangerine, damp leaf and faint mustiness. The taste is orange, sour apricot, peach, earthy, hay, crisp tartness, barnyard, brett, sherbet and decent bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Very drinkable indeed. Balance is spot-on. Delicious!
