3 Fonteinen Framboos is the result of macerating hand-picked whole raspberries on young lambic for at least four months, in a proportion of one kilogram of fruit per litre of lambic. The raspberry lambic is then blended again with more young lambic to obtain a minimum intensity of 35% fruit, and is bottled immediately afterwards. These bottles are then stored in our cellars for at least five months so that the raspberry lambic can develop into a beautiful, traditional, and re ned Framboos. With a abundant forest fruit nose as it warms in the glass, 3 Fonteinen Framboos will age perfectly but may lose some of the vibrant colours and forest fruit aromas. This un ltered and unpasteurised lambic is all-natural with no arti cial juices, syrups, or sugars added. Traditional Lambic is living, cultural heritage rooted in the Zenne valley!

Pours unclear amberpink. No head. Smell is mildly acetic acid, full fruityness. taste is sharp, intense sour, mild acetic acid but it builds up, and is simply to much to be pleasant. Very dry, full on fruityness. low, but existing carbonation. Too sharp and acidic, to acetic as well.

2018 bottle, blend 74. Clear red with a wisp of head that's soon at the rim. Aroma of raspberries - some sweet, mostly hairy - almonds, vanilla, some old lemon, a rather clean outbuilding. Slightly slippery, moderate to low carbonation. Much less dominated by berries in the taste - the focus goes seamlessly from mostly fruit to mostly lambic. Finish of old lemons and some spices. Moderately sour with considerable depth as well as a little bright acidity. Deep rather than complex and elegantly quaffable.

Another 3F blend with Lindemans wort, I couldn't resist... Beautiful rapsberry notes up front, followed by decent amounts of lambic funk, the characteristic 3F mineral funk, barnyard funk, some green apple, citrus. A very nice blend

Bottle shared on the roof. Hazy rusty rose with no head. Massive sour and fruity raspberries, red berries, rose fruits. Bit old and rusty, but nice nonetheless. Medium body, mineral, blood iron, rust, fruit pulp.

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro at his birthday. Dull pink color. Lots of jammy raspberries, dull funk, lemon, red currants. Over medium sour. Nice blend, not super sour. Looks have really faded though.

Pours unclear amberreddish. Nearly no head. Smell is full, raspberry, mildly acetic. Oak and funk. Taste is full, intense, tart. Mildly acetic. Full on raspberry, still. Fruit has lived up over the years, strangely enough, and the beer certainly improved in my opinion. Lovely to drink anno 2020 !
