COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zenne y Frontera is een unieke creatie van meesterbrouwer en -geuzesteker Armand Debelder en maître-sommelier Andy De Brouwer. Dit natuurlijke millésime bier is een assemblage van jonge lambieken die nog eens 12 maanden gerust hebben op 40 jaar oude Oloroso en PX sherry vaten. Door de lange rijping worden de geuzige toetsen van onze authentieke 3 Fonteinen lambiek geaccentueerd door de typische, fijne Oloroso en Pedro Ximénez karakterteristieken. Door de Zenne y Frontera voorzichtig te karafferen evolueert het aroma en de smaak van deze unieke lambiek van fris zurig naar een complex notig en vol fruitig boeket.

Zenne y Frontera is a unique creation from master-brewer and geuze-blender Armand Debelder and maître-sommelier Andy De Brouwer. This natural millésime beer is a blend of young lambics that have been aged for another 12 months in 40 year old Oloroso and PX sherry casks. Thanks to the long maturation, the geuze-like notes of our authentic 3 Fonteinen lambic are well accentuated by the typical, fine Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez characteristics. By gently decanting the Zenne y Frontera, the aroma of this unique lambic will evolve from vividly tangy to a complex nutty and fully fruity bouquet.

First released in September 2015.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2017 @ 3 Fonteinen Lambik-o-droom. Served with 2 sherries, 20 year old FX and a 30 year old Oloroso. Aroma is very well balanced. Great acidity with old wood tones, wavering sherry. Taste is funkier than aroma. Soft old oak, hay, mildly sourness. Palate is tad puckering. Sherry peeps in finish, great blend of all components. Some soft vinegar there. Awesome.

Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow colour, white creamy foam. Very nice and complex geuze. Light sweet, grassy, crispy, woody and vinous. Very well balanced and complex but not the best in the 3F series. If I compare this with the new Boon Vat series, I like them more. But maybe I had too high expectations of this beer.

SlackerMads (3467) - DENMARK - AUG 2, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 Bottle at 3F lambik-o-droom with sunevdj. Hazy golden with a medium sized frothy white head with some lace and good retention and regeneration. Sharp and funky nose with cheese, sulphur, wood, hay and barnyard. Complex flavour with port wine, sherry, dark wood, nuts, barnyard, hay, sulphur/gunpowder and light lemon. Soft and filling with light and fluffy carbonation, some sweetness, medium sour. Really nice.

sunevdj (4102) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2017
Bottle at 3 fonteinen lambik-O-droom. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a very small white head. Dry with a light sweetness and a mellow sourness. Aromas of dry sherry and riesling with hints of white port. Fruity aromas of grapes. Also mild notes of cask wood. Also tiny hints of vanilla and oak. Medium to light bodied. Very soft carbonation. Sour and grapey finish with light notes of black pepper.

arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2017
This was popped extremely generously by Beau. Slightly hazy golden orange pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of nice big funky bread, cheese, tart lemon, barnyard, nice sherry and buttery notes come into a bit of oak, brown sugar, spicy notes as well. Taste was a mix of nice oak, funk, vanilla, earth, spice into a bit of butter, more tart lemony and lactic notes into a bit of yeast, nice sherry notes with a hint of spice, finishing slightly tart, funky, oaky. World class, as usual.
