3 Fonteinen Hommage Lambic (Oogst 2019)(375ml)
Brewed by Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen (Lot, Vlaanderen Belgium)
For this Hommage, we blended a co-maceration of raspberries and sour cherries – but we switched the fruit proportions – with a small batch of pure frambozenlambik. Consequently, this Hommage is somewhat out of the ordinary.
The average weighted maceration time is 5,5 months and the final fruit intensity is 493 grams of whole fruits per litre of Hommage. The proportion of sour cherries is 54% vs. 46% of raspberries; the latter all sourced at Ferme Framboos.
Finally, we also used a sizeable portion of two-year old lambik, brewed in the beginning of 2018. All lambikken originate from four different barrels and six different brews.
Fonteinen Hommage is the slow and all-natural maceration of hand-picked whole raspberries and sour cherries on traditional lambic. No addition of juices, syrups or artificial sweeteners. Unfiltered. Unpasteurised.
