For this Speling van het Lot, we blended a lambik that was macerated with sour cherries and winter spices on the coolship during that same Longest Night.
On the Longest Night of 2019 on December 21st - as we do every year - we experimented around the brewhouse and the coolship. Aside from the three blends featured in this Twist of Fate-series, that day we also put some sherry barrel staves directly on the coolship to macerate in the cooling lambik wort. We used that lambik in an Oude Geuze blend (season 20|21, blend n° 44).
The weighted average age of the blend upon bottling is about sixteen months. 100% 3 Fonteinen brewed lambik.
Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen “Speling van het Lot” (Twist of Fate) is a series of small batch experimental brews, barrel maturations, fruit macerations and blends.
