Regular price £45.99
This particular Framboos has macerated for 5 months. The final fruit intensity is 37% (so 370 grams of fruit per liter of finished Framboos). The summer raspberries are hand-picked and cultivated organically by Ferme Framboos.
3 Fonteinen Framboos is the result of macerating hand-picked whole raspberries on young lambic for at least four months, in a proportion of one kilogram of fruit per litre of lambic. The raspberry lambic is then blended again with more young lambic to obtain a minimum intensity of 35% fruit, and is bottled immediately afterwards. These bottles are then stored in our cellars for at least five months so that the raspberry lambic can develop into a beautiful, traditional, and refined Framboos. With an abundant forest fruit nose as it warms in the glass, 3 Fonteinen Framboos will age perfectly but may lose some of the vibrant colours and forest fruit aromas. This unfiltered and unpasteurised lambic is all-natural with no artifcial juices, syrups, or sugars added. Traditional Lambic is living, cultural heritage rooted in the Zenne valley!
In the rolling hills around the valley of the Dijle and Laan rivers, in the beautiful Sint-Agatha-Rode (Huldenberg), south-east of Brussels and close to Leuven, is where Ferme Framboos is situated. Owner Jan Butaye focuses on berries, particularly on raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants and strawberries.
