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.

Bottle. Enjoyed at brewery with a side taste of Bodegas Tradicion Oloroso and PX. Tasting next to th sherry is an amazing experience. Hazy orange color with white head. Funky, nutty, and lemon notes throughout. Fantastic!

2014. Pite w browarze w maju 2017. Cena 60€ za butelkę, serwowane z próbkami trunków, w których Zenne leżakowało - świetna opcja. Niemocno kwaśne, brak octu, umiarkowanie cierpkie. Nuty sherry i nieco goryczki oraz jakby lukrecji na finiszu. Funky, cytrusowe. Genialny balans. Piękne, ultra pijalne piwo. Warto było.

From a 75 cl bottle at the De Heeren van Liedekercke in Belgium. Pours a cloudy gold with an off white head. Luscious aroma of oak and hay. Deep layered flavors of funk. Delicious.

anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 20, 2017
Bottle shared at Lambik-o-droom. Pours clear golden. Aroma is funky, but also with a log of sherry notes, feels rich already there. Body is medium, softly sour and tart, with a rich sherry note and decent funk. Palate lingers on sour and sherry notes. An impressive feat, great balance and an incredibly smooth experience. Absolutely great!

Bottle emptied into a decanter at the source with friends. Served with both Sherry glasses. Pours a clearish orange with large foamy head and spotty lace. Aroma and flavor of complex lemon, oak, blanket, nuts, dank earth and light Sherry. Medium body with tart/dry finish. Excellent.

Cost me a case of beer to bag this whale, but what the hell. Shared among friends. Pours clear golden, small white head, dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma is huge funk, basement, sweat socks, horse blanket. Sherry notes as well. Flavor is dry, light tart, medium funk, a bit of spice, port. Light body, hints of spice.

JStax (6356) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2017
Bottle at the source poured into a decanter and then a glass. The aroma has huge walnut and sherry notes. Sweet and earthy. The sherry notes come through amazingly. I can’t believe how well it’s captured. I get some chocolate and hazelnut. Mildly tart and funky. This beer is phenomenal.
