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.
For this batch of Framboos, we used raspberries from Ferme Framboos, located in beautiful Huldenberg, Flanders. These raspberries, hand-picked in the summer of 2019, macerated for more than three months on a single oak barrel. While macerating, we only used lambic originating from one brew and from one barrel, and we used another single lambic from one barrel for blending. The final fruit intensity is 378 grams of raspberries per litre of Framboos.
