When we make beer, we often find ourselves focusing on one particular fruit. This narrow focus comes from both our respect for tradition and the distinct character of each fruit. However blending is about stretching the boundaries and therefore we decided to take another step by blending three red fruits lambics This blend is made up of 3 different summer fruits: - the raspberry lambic is made of 1 and 2 year old lambic which macerated on 3 varieties of raspberries sourced from local farms, harvested in July 2018 - the Pjassel was made with 1, 2 and 3 year old lambic aged on red vineyard peaches harvested in September 2018 - the kriek was made by macerating Gorsem sour cherries for 18 months in a barrel, harvest of July 2017 In the last 4 years I have made serveral experiments involving a blend of these 3 different fruits and finally I got to a blend which I think reaches an equilibrium of freshness and depth. The deep dark character of the cherries carries the bright acidity of the raspberries, and the aroma of that blend are uplifted by the floral and smooth fruity character of the peaches ... without any of the three fruits dominating the blend.

30/XI/19 - sample @ Day 2 of Billies Craft Beer Festival 2019, BB: n/a - (2019-2031) Thanks to all for sharing today’s beers!

Aroma: lots of raspberries and cherries, very fruity, some vanilla. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: sourish, pretty metallic, very fruity, nice stuff, little vinegar. Aftertaste: dry, lemon juice, metallic touch, bit too sharp and acidic for me.

Bottle. Deep dark red color. Quite sour and astringent. Dislike the clear fruit stone astringent flavors. Aroma is intense red fruit. Hmm alright.

Sampled from bottle at Beerlovers Bar - Lambic Night 2019. Pours pinkred, small white head. Smell is full, cherries on top, milder pjassel ( vinyard peaches ) , and raspberry is very mild. taste starts sharp, intensely so, than quickly the fruit overtakes and mellows it out. Here, Pjassel takes the lead up front, followed by raspberry , and - surprisingly - kriek shows the least here. Bit doughy, a factor that's due to the lambic rather than the fruit, and is less to my liking. Very elegant, yet clearly intense and robust at the same time. Strong tartness doesnt overpower , nor becomes unpleasant. Lovely beer. Sharply acidic, yet no real acetic acid to me ( though some thought different on that last part ).

Bottle shared. Pours hazy red with a medium pink head. Notes of vineyard peaches, cherries, raspberries, slightly funky, subtle acetic and just pure juicy fresh fruit. Amazing fruit blend

Deliciously fruity! All three fruits/berries on their best side all adding delicious flavours and complexity. High but balanced acidity. Damn good!
