NL Midden september 2018 ontvingen we 500 kilogram wilde blauwe bosbessen, handgeplukt in de Zweedse bossen. Voor deze assemblage lieten we 250 kg gedurende 5 maanden en 5 dagen op 200 liter jonge traditionele 3 Fonteinen lambik macereren op een eikenhouten ton. Daarna werd de bessenlambik verder geassembleerd met jonge lambik en wat verse lambikwort voor verdere vergisting op fles. Natuurlijk fruit, zonder toevoeging van sappen, siropen, of suikers. Ongefilterd en ongepasteuriseerd.

The berry lambic was then blended with young lambic and a bit of fresh lambic wort for a continued fermentation in the bottle. Natural fruit without addition of juices, sirops or sugars. Unfiltered and unpasteurised.

Bottled 25/02/2019. 750 ml. bottle. Fairly certain that I have had this one before, slow gusher sadly. Deepest berry colour & non-lasting berry head. Nose is dirtiest imaginable farmland blueberry, low lemon underneath and all stable and field. Incredibly dirty in best way possible blueberry, field, massive farmland & even more stable, lingering lemon & skin tannins, oak & old wine,… Lingering lemon, oak, lower skins, extreme in every way, so much fruit & so incredibly dirty, delicate in extremity.

75cl bottle @ Tilquin admin gathering, merci Pierre en pairing avec la version Tilquin.
Couleur acajou, col rosé fin.
Arôme au bouquet plaisant de baies mais restant un cran en dessous de la version Tilquin, nettement plus fruitée, ici un petit effet de fumé perdure, retrouve un côté funk-brett en rétro.
Palais est fruité assez moyen, le tout un peu fumé et grinçant aux dents, caractère poussiéreux, cave, pointe de cave voire de chimique, brett fermenté-funk citrique.
Au final, un côté lambic-jeune meerts qui ne donne pas un fini complexe à la hauteur du prix - en comparaison avec la version Tilquin qui ajoute du lambic 2 et 3 ans, on a vraiment un niveau plus élevé pour quasi 2x fois moins cher.

Bottled at Pressklubben, Stockholm. Murky deep burgundy colour, small head. Funky cobwebs and barnyard, slight hint of dark berries. Tart with light to medium body and crisp, rounded mouthfeel. Elegant bretty barnyard, some blueberries. Mid bitter finish. A truly great gueuze, that the blueberries addition cannot hide. By far and away the best beer with blueberries ever made.

Bottle at Pressklubben. Deep purple with small head. Super funky barnyard, manure, some tart citric blueberries. Reminiscent of a super funky natural wine. Tart blueberry finish.
