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!

Pours clear orange with a nice, big white head. Aroma is sweet, citrus, light lactic, funky. High carbonation, nice dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is light crisp and sour. Good balance with good tartness.

thellgren (1030) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2017
0.75 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki (tasted May 2, 2017). Aroma has rhubarb, lemon and marmalade. Appearance is golden, cloudy and still with some bubbles. Taste has citrus fruits, especially lemon. There’s also lemongrass, cardamon, rhubarb, pepper, well some spices. The actual spices are not the same I thought I tasted. Well, this is nicely sour and spicy in a refreshing way.

The_Osprey (7881) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017

April 2017 - 75cl squat bottle as Birrificio del Ducato Beersel Morning, 6.2%, 5 years aged. Bottle says "So happy just to be alive, underneath the sky of blue", and it happens to be a beautiful sunny day here in Richmond. Pours with a glug, glug, glug due to the bottle shape. Clear, sparkling, golden orange with a small but lasting head. Aroma is cider, rubber, peach, wet wood, polished metal, lemon pie and all that musty lambic goodness. Body is smooth and rounded with a subdued tingly to soft carbonation. Taste is not that sour, has a toffee sweetness with gooseberry, lychee, gose and lemonade. Very soft oak and acidity. Smells like lambic and tastes like gose (but better). Really drinkable and I like the subdued carbonation. Very tasty stuff, though there are similar options that cost less. (4.1)

It has a good earthly sour aroma to it. The flavors are highlighted by earthly elements with plenty of tartness. There is also a strong vinous element as well.

VertBaconStrips (2387) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - MAR 26, 2017
Pretty sure I bought this back in 2012 and it’s sat in the same spot since. I’m not gonna put the aroma as upper level stuff but the taste is pretty damn fine. Citrus, dust, honey, yeast, barnyard on the end of the nose. Super tasty stuff - sourness is very manageable, honey, leather, super sharp citrus, leather, barn, nothing overpowering. Amazingly refreshing. It would appear that an even lengthier sit would not have hurt this in the slightest. Excellent.

@ Budapest.

Sweet and sour aroma with white grape, a little burnt match, and lots of sour cherries. Clean. Hazy yellow under a lasting white cover and lace. Quite sour flavour, clean, and with cherries and white grape. Not overly complex.
