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.

$40 bottle of beer. Dang. but sour tickers gotta do it. So I grabbed this bottle in waterbury VT...waited 2 weeks for yeast to settle and split it 3 ways. Nose was bread-forward, sourdough and a nice earthy spice. Taste was great. Excellent mix of bread forward saison and tart wild lambic. I would love to try this again if not for the price. I imagine it’ll age very well.

Bue à la pression. Nez café, que l'on retrouve au palais avec des arômes de pruneau et une pointe sucrée en finale. Bien équilibrée.

Ragnampiza (512) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 6, 2014
Keg at Eurhop beer festival. Light golden orange, pretty hazy, with a nice, creamy and persistent white head. The lambic component pretty much dominate the aroma. Wet tea leaves, barnyard, cellar but surprisingly some citrusy hop notes as well. Rye bread and fruit esters in the background. A hint of rubbery smoke too. Chunky but at the same time extremely refreshing and easy to drink. Lovely lemony sourness, nice bready and wheaty presence from the saison. Pretty big bitter aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Simply great.

@ Borefts 2014. Golden colour, white foam. Aroma of tart green apples with notes of spices (anise?) and citrus. Reminds me a bit of a sour saison. Good beer.

Draught at Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fa’. Pale hazy golden-yellow with a frothy, lasting white head. Aroma is more lambic-like, funky, sour, fruity. Some more yeast in the flavour with a lively and tart body, dry, lemon, green apples. Intriguing, tasty.
