Batch 6. Beginning of 2017, we acquired a second set of 21 Oloroso and 7 PX barrels and aged young lambic on them for another year. We lost 4 barrels along the way and we blended 12 barrels for this blend and 12 barrels for batch 5 (blend 49). Average age of over 2,5 years upon release, no backblending. 100% 3 Fonteinen lambic.

3 Fonteinen Zenne y Frontera is een unieke creatie van Armand Debelder en maître-sommelier Andy De Brouwer. Dit natuurlijke millésime bier is een assemblage van jonge traditionele lambikken die verder gerust hebben op veertig jaar oude authentieke Oloroso en Pedro Ximénez sherryvaten. Zenne y Frontera is de perfecte symbiose van enkele koppige karakters, vele wilde ideeën, immens fijne aroma’s en twee mooie streken.

Zenne y Frontera is the perfect symbiosis of a few stubborn characters, a lot of wild ideas, a vast palette of aromas and two beautiful regions

75cl bottle @ Tilquin admin gathering, merci Pierre. Vertical with Blend # 20, 21, 49 & 50.
Dorée sur un léger voile, col blanc léger.
Arôme et semble être le meilleur batch testé ce soir, retrouve un excellent bouquet de Sherry avec un petit côté caramélisé qui penche presque sur des effluves oxydées. Pointes de lambic et boisé percent en retrait.
Palais est citrique voire acidulé, lambic sur une sécheresse de fin de bouche marquée. Le Sherry est bien là et semble bien balancé apportant un caractère Sherry caramélisé-noix.
Au final, 4 versions, toutes ayant un caractère particulier qui justifie des entrées différentes - en conclusion, ma préférence va à cette version mais continue de pencher sur le tout premier batch de Zenne.

Bottled at Pressklubben, Stockholm. Hazy golden, no head - just a touch darker than Batch 5. Intense barnyard aroma, some oak. Acetic with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel, low carbonation. Oaky port meets citrus, citric acid and barnyard. Complex and intense. World class deluxe!

Wildly complex, brighter on the nose than 49, way deeper in flavor and less acidic. The decanting helps a lot.
