The history of this beer goes back several years ago, in the summer of 2009, the brewery 3 Fonteinen of Beersel (perhaps the best blender in the world of Lambic) had serious economic damage as a result of the failure of a machine, it caused quite a stir in international brewing movement that I called Armand and I asked him how things were going. His answer was very simple: he needed to sell his Lambic. Immediately I thought of doing a blend between our New Morning and its Lambic. I agreed with him and together we chose three barrels of Lambic aged 18 months whose contents were pumped into a small tank on our truck. I remember that the trip was very long and tiring, Manuel and I we took turns driving through Belgium, France and Italy, stopping only to refuel. After days and days to bottle and long months in bottle what came out was above the our most optimistic expectations and we can proudly say that it is really worth it. Today Beersel Morning is produced with great lambic friend Gert Oud Beersel. My pilgrimages in Flemish Brabant are far from over: every time is always a unique and fascinating experience, the smell of the damp cellars is a memory that I always carry with me.
In the glass, to the nose and in the mouth …
Blend of New Morning and lambic aged 18 months of Oud Beersel, aged for at least 18 months also in bottle. The nose is surprising for its citrus notes, leather, cellar and animal, however accompanied by reminiscences of dried flowers and honey. In the mouth, long, tasty and with a final cut acid that always gives a smile to lovers of the genre.
