3 Fonteinen Hommage14007443
Dating back to at least 1883, 3 Fonteinen is an iconic lambic producer with a serious cult following. The name 'three fountains' refers to the hand pumps used to serve the three types of lambic at the inn. The business was almost ruined in 2009 after a faulty thermostat resulted in 80,000 bottles of cooked lambic, many exploding, resulting in huge financial loss. We're thankful that 3 Fonteinen is still here to this day and producing some of the most highly sought after lambic in the world.
3 Fonteinen Hommage is the result of macerating hand-picked whole sour cherries and raspberries on young lambic for at least four months, in a proportion of 760 to 800 grams of raspberries and 200 to 240 grams of sour cherries per litre of lambic. This fruit lambic is then blended again with more lambic to obtain a minimum intensity of 35% fruit. Hommage is a bodied raspberry lambic beer, with an intense deep red forest fruit bouquet. This unfiltered and unpasteurised lambic is all-natural with no artificial juices, syrups, or sugars added.
