Danish: En sur saison variant på 6,5% alk., brygget i Januar 2009 af Shaun E. Hill. Den har lagret i franske Pinot Noir egefade med Brettanomyces i 4 måneder, og ved tapning blev øllen blandet med Drie Fonteinen Lambic 2007 – personligt udvalgt af bryggeren. Resultatet er en unik sur øl med duft af hestedækken, kostald og jord (!), en smag med præg af eg og citrus, og en let tør, frugtig og bitter krop samt en sprød, krydret eftersmag.

English: Saison Lambic Pinot Noir is a sour saison style beer, brewed in January 2009 by Shaun Hill, and after finishing in the tank, the beer was racked into a French oak Pinot Noir barrel and aged in this with Brettanomyces for 4 months. At bottling the beer was blended with a small proportion of 2007 Drie Fonteinen draft lambic that was personally selected by our brewer. The result is a unique, distinctly sour beer with barnyard and earthy aromas, oaky and citrusy flavours, and a light, dry, fruity and bitter palate, ending on a crisp, spicy and lasting note.
