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!

Bottle picked up in California. The beer pours to a glowing amber body with a tall creamy white head and sexy lacing. The aroma is like an unblended lambic or gueuze. Very subtle. Light floral hops. The flavor is very Belgian. Lots of gueuze/unblended like components. Subtle spices. Floral hops. The palate is medium light bodied and super easy drinking.

Pours hazy amber with a large head. Nose shows heaps of funk, elderflower, herbal notes and spicy phenols. Flavours include some acidity, more herbal notes, spicy saison-like farmhouse characters. Carbonation is too high.

Draught at Owl Farm NYC. Aroma of horseblanket, clear 3 Fonteinen funk, lemon, yoghurty, slightly woody with earthy, leafy, and small leather touch to it. Taste is more saison, a bit tropical fruit and the funk disappears to a more floral bouquet, peach, apricot, with clear lemon in the front. This is very well made and drinkable.
