Pruim Vroege Tolse 22|23 blend 21
For this Pruim, we macerated an old Belgian damson variety - Vroege Tolse - which we handpicked with Willy Verlinden on the Wijngaardberg in Wezemaal, just outside Leuven. We macerated the plums for almost six months on three-year old lambik. While bottling, we blended with more two-and-ahalf- year old lambik, rendering the weighted average of the blend at more than 32 months upon the bottling moment. The final fruit proportion is 392 grams of Vroege Tolse per litre of finished Pruim. In total, we used lambikken from three different barrels and seven different brews. 100% 3F • 5.8%

About the brewery
One of the World's best-known lambic producers, 3 Fonteinen always amazes with the complexity of their blends. First located in Beersel, Belgium, at the 3 Fonteinen Café, founded by Gaston Debelder and eventually taken over by his son Armand Debelder, production moved to Lot in 2015, while the café maintained its function as a restaurant. 3 Fonteinen has the particularity of being both a lambic brewer and a blender. The brewery's experiments in recent years with various fruits, malts and brewing methods make it one of the essentials of Pajottenland. 3 Fonteinen is currently working to replant Schaerbeek cherry trees in the region and to use local cereals as much as possible.
