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

Huge huge thanks to egajdzis for sharing this beer at a tasting at my place. This was one of three surprisingly terrific beers of the evening. I real highlight!

Appearance: Pours a read color with pink edges and a fizzy off white head. Leaves nice lacing on the walls of my snifter glass.

Smell: Tart raspberry and cherry flavors with a lactic acidity containing all the glories of Lambic funk. Almost perfumey in nature. Wood and leather almost lean into horse blanket but the sour fruit covers over that attribute.

Taste: It is a complex plethora of sour flavors singing all over the charts. Very sharp acidity and sour overripe red fruits followed by a dash of spices and a long lingering acidic pucker.

Mouthfeel: Aggressive. Perfect. It is sour. It is acidic. It is cherry. It is no holds barred and yet feels spot on through through the palate and never goes overboard. this is shear excellence.

I am humble to have sat at a single table with this beer Drie Fonteinen Hommage, and Cable Car. Hommage is a Lambic that epitomizes the variety with in the style. A true treat. Thanks you Eric!

Hope this is helpful.
