750 mL bottle. Deep orange. Smells of classic 3 Fonteinen with a big orange citrus, sherry, and oak. Tastes of sour orange, oak, dried grass, cheesy funk, astringency. Wine flavor permeates. Medium body. Back to the quality of Blend 21. Intense barrel character and very strong sourness, but worth the intensity.

From a decanted bottle at 3F. This (batch 3) was my favorite of the 3 Zenne blends (3, 5, 6) that I had at 3F Lambik-o-droom. The average lambic age is 60+ months and the aging adds a lovely complexity to an already rich taste. I loved all 3 Zenne's as much as the top Cantillons that I had been drinking the 3 days prior, but this blend (Batch 3) was my favorite of the 3.

Zenne b3 at obd on 190907

Pours a golden yellow colored beer with a small head atop.

Smells of ancient sherry barrels, sweet, fermented grapes and additional wet wood. Got a mellow earthiness to it, which allows for a faint herbal note and a complex, dusty funkiness.

Drinks with a light and smooth, part aqueous body, due to the lower carbonation in this.

Tastes of scented wood, bright citrus and fermented, alcohol soaked wine grapes. Offers more moldy oak with a very light sharpness from the Sherry, blending flawlessly into a more prominent growing tartness. After this flavor peak the barrel receeds, leaving with leather wrapped lime zest and a long lasting sour smack.

Quite unique since this starts subtle, well nuanced and oaken, while finishing in reminiscence of a way younger lambic with an intense acidity and heavy on limes.
