COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
3 Fonteinen Oude 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 Oude Lambik is considered all 3 Fonteinen lambic above 18 months of oak barrel maturation after brewing, and every blend of young and old lambic, prior to bottling and bottle evolution to geuze. It is poured 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 serving moment is kept as short as possible.

Hopfig-suerlicher Antrunk, der mit seinen Beinoten aber angenehm ausfllt. Wenig frisch, fast laff. Im Verlauf wird die Suerlichkeit fast unwichtig, der muffige Hopfen strker. /8/6/6//7

Draught at the tasting room, courtesy of Armand - thank you sir! Brewed in January 2009, tasted in June 2010. Classified as a jonge lambik by Armand, but meets Ratebeers definition and description of an oude lambik. Slight haziness, variegated color from golden brown to yellow. Small white head that disappears rapidly. Aroma of slight dust and must,, lemon peel. Taste is cour citrus, acidic and very dry, especially at the finish. Wonderful!

SinH4 (4438) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2017
UPDATED: APR 21, 2017 Tap at Grote Dorst. Hazy dark golden color with no head. Aroma is burnt bread, wood, not so much funk. Taste is burnt bread, some milky yeasts. Oily mouthfeel. Flat. Okay, probably one of the last pours of the bag, but still: it showcases the 3 Fonteinen character. 7-3-7-3-14.

Assemblage at the Lambik-O-Droom. Hazy orange color with soapy bubbles. Aroma is funky. Taste is funky, with quite some residual sugars, apples and candy. Flat. Very interesting. 7-4-7-4-15

Heel donker geel bijna oranje. Een intemse geur van paardestal met een licht zurig tintje. De smaak is droog, haverig en deegachtig.
