For this Pruim Speling, we co-macerated two different plum varieties from Wijndomein Hoenshof, Conducta and Opal. We freed up a small 1000L toasted foeder from our friends at Garbellotto, a small family run cooperage. We macerated the plums, with stone and all, for almost five months on two different young lambikken. We bottled the fruitlambik straight from the barrel
Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen “Speling van het Lot” (Twist of Fate) is a series of small batch experimental brews, barrel maturations, fruit macerations and blends.
This 11th version features a range of plum(-like) fruit macerations. About 60 years ago, there were more than 200 ancient plum varieties in and around Belgium, now almost extinct. The ambition is to track down and experiment with such old local varieties and have them grown again with local farmers and enthusiasts.
