COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
3 Fonteinen Jonge Lambik is the result of a specific brewing process with a high proportion of unmalted wheat, spontaneous fermentation in an open coolship, and slow and complex fermentation and maturation in oak barrels of different sizes and shapes. This beer is completely flat as the carbonation evaporates through the wooden staves. Please note the age of the sample you are reviewing when entering your rating. 3 Fonteinen Jonge Lambik is considered between 9 months and 18 months after brewing. It is poured locally around the brewery, in some selected places, and in the lambik-O-droom on dedicated hand pumps. As it is unfiltered and unpasteurised, the time between the oak barrel and the moment of serving is kept as short as possible.

Leighton (22327) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2017
From the cask at lambik-O-droom. Pours hazy gold with a small, bubbly head. Bit of plastic and grass in the nose, lemon peel, tennis balls. Lightly sweet with a bit of old wood, bitter grass, mild acidity, some lemon, tangerine peel. Light to medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. Lightly drying in the finish, with more wood, bitter fresh grass, faint pine needles. Great stuff overall. Quite quenching, with nice dryness in the aftertaste.
