Season 20|21 Blend No. 9 - Bottled 06/01/2021
This Pruim features the Belle De Louvain, an ancient plum variety, popularly known in Brabant and Limburg province as Paterskloten and Hondskloten respectively. We sourced both these at Hoenshof in Limburg and at Willy’s orchard on the Wijngaardberg around Rotselaar. We macerated the entire plums for almost five months on lambik from five different barrels and five different brews. Finally, we blended with some young lambik before bottling. Final fruit intensity is 380 grams of Belle De Louvain plums per litre of Pruim. 100% 3 Fonteinen.
EN 3 Fonteinen Pruim is the slow and all-natural maceration of hand-picked whole plums or zwetschgen on traditional lambik. No addition of juices, syrups or artificial sweeteners. Unfiltered. Unpasteurised.
