Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Phatz on 10-15-2007

A blend of lambic beers brewed at 3 Fonteinen, with an addition of 30% whole fresh raspberries from the fabled Payottenland and 5% sour cherries. This unfiltered beer will enjoy a spontaneous refermentation in the bottle. No artificial colors or flavor enhancers are added. Lambic is brewed only from 60% barley malt, 40% unmalted wheat, hops and water.

In commemoration of the late Gaston Debelder, founder of the 3 Fonteinen blendings

The beer up front offers a medium berry flavor, leaning on a jammy quality. Leaning more towards raspberry than cherry.

Then a medium funk and a good tart quality comes up. Oak cleans up the beer. A touch of sesame comes up. Not the most exciting Drie F or fruited lambic, despite the hype.

Not sure if we got an infected bottle but we had a large sour tasting last night and this was by far the worst of the bunch. For lack of a better description, it smelled and tasted like band aids. We have 10 people all agree on the assessment and we ended up drain pouring the remaining.

Fantastic fruit flavor! If we're being picky, it's a little on the tart side and the carbonation is a bit distracting. But that's being really picky.
