The Great Lambic Summit - Philly
« on: June 04, 2010, 09:17:30 PM »
The Lambic World is more divided, politically charged, and fraught with danger than the Middle East. So it's a really big deal when you get Armand Debelder (3 Fonteinen), Frank Boon (Brouwerij Boon), and Jean Van Roy (Brasserie Cantillon) together at the same table. In fact, it's never been done before.

On Wednesday evening, June 9th, as part of Philly Beer Week, these three greats -- indisputably the three most traditional and authentic producers of real lambic in Belgium -- will be gathered first to celebrate and praise each others' work. Liberal quantities of special beers from each producer will be passed around, including some extremely rare items being flown over to the U.S. for the occasion which will likely never be seen here again. There will be some artistically prepared foods, naturally. There will also very likely be some fireworks. Even at the top, not everyone sees eye to eye, to say the least. And there will probably some discussion, and some dirt dished, about what's going on in the darker corners of Lambic World. Dan Shelton, beer importer, lambic fan, and well-known pain-in-the-ass, will be hosting the discussion and doing his ugly best to make sure that the evening is not without controversy, just the way you like it!

It all happens under the wise and watchful eye of the Sphinx, in the Lower Egyptian Room in the depths of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Art. The ancient inhabitants of the Nile River Valley were of course the first great civilization to make an art and religion of brewing beer -- relying on unseen and then unknown wild yeasts to ferment their brew, just as the famous brewers and blenders of lambic beer in Belgium's Senne River valley do today.

You can't afford not to be there for this once-in-a lifetime happening:

Frank Boon, Brouwerij Boon
Armand Debelder, 3 Fonteinen
Jean Van Roy, Brasserie Cantillon

The Lambic Summit in the Lower Egyptian Room at the UPenn Museum

That is so freaking cool.  :excited:

And I'll be stuck in a meeting in Syracuse.  :hot:

It said $60 when I clicked the link.  Still worth it.

On hand was

3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze 1999 - A particular vintage that Armand likes very much, it was made one year after the millennium geuze.
Boon Oude Geuze 2010
Cantillon Classic Gueuze
3 Fonteinen J&J Oude Geuze Blauw
Boon Kriek
Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek
3 Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek
Boon Framboise
Cantillon Pinot d'Aunis - experimental lambic using a dying grape that Jean obtained from a winemaker friend. He really seems to like wine.
3 Fonteinen Druiven Geuze Malvasia 2002 - Apparently this one used to be deep red from the grapes but that the color had faded greatly within the past few years. The standout of the night for me.
Cantillon LH 12 (unblended lambic aged 5 years in cognac barrels, similar to 50N 4E which is a blend that is partially aged in cognac barrels for 2.5 years)
3 Fonteinen geuze distilled to 80 proof liquor

Even though I just got back from Brussels, I'm still jealous! Those last few sound ridiculous.

This was by far the best beer event I've been to. My faves were the 1999, Pinot d'Aunis, Druiven Gueuze Malvasia and the Lou Pepe Kriek. Oh, and the LH12 and Schaerbeekse and the Blauw too.

JVR said this was the oldest they had ever aged a lambic, 5 years. It was more or less a one-off experiment, and he said that after this long there's no more "evolution" to the lambic. Also re: amphoras project, he said he wasn't really pleased with it at the current stage, too much metallic taste from the vessels, though some are better than others. Time will tell...

Also re: amphoras project, he said he wasn't really pleased with it at the current stage, too much metallic taste from the vessels, though some are better than others. Time will tell...

Amphorae was blended and bottled already, but no plans for them (yet)  :coffee: 

There were also a few bottles of 3yr old lambic aged in Cognac barrels floating around but they were never officially 'released'. 

The most interesting thing I've had from Cantillon this year is a 9% ABV "lambicwine" that was poured for our group when we were there.

Quote
Our Lambics are beers with 5%ABV. Some of our beers, like Vigneronne, Saint-Lamvinus or Iris reach 6-6.5%ABV because of the fruit fermentation and the higher gravity of sugar in the wort.
The normal gravity in a Lambic wort sits around 12,5°Plato. Lambic has always been a very mysterious beer and, at Cantillon, we are very curious people. That's the reason why we decided 3 years ago to brew a higher gravity Lambic. We reached 25°Plato, twice the normal gravity of wort for Lambic. The result was amazing: A 9.7% ABV Lambic with 8°Plato residual sugar.

We repeated the experiment again two years ago. Because of the high level residual sugar in the first brew, we decide to produce a wort with a lower gravity to obtain the same alcohol level with less sweetness. Lambic works in mysterious ways though, and with the wort at 22°Plato we got the same level residual sugar with less alcohol, 8.7%ABV. Because of the high alcohol level, we had no more evolution after 2 years and we decide to blend those two brews and to bottle it in February of this year.

The result is surprising. The beer is amber, without carbonation, and comes in at 9.1%ABV and 8° Plato residual sugar. It's close to a Barley Wine or an oxidized wine like Madeira, Sherry or Vin Jaune. Even more surprising is that when we forgot a half-empty bottle, th beer was still good when we tasted it....after 8 days. This beer will be poured for the first time next weekend in Portland (Maine) for The Festival organised by Shelton Brothers and 12% imports.

Cool :thumbup: I guess he's named it Lambic d’Haute Densité.

Nice.  He didn't have a name for it last I saw.  :thumbup:

these three greats -- indisputably the three most traditional and authentic producers of real lambic in Belgium --
"Things Shelton Says" for $1000, Alex. :rolleyes:
I guess Girardin, Hanssens, Oud Beersel, and De Cam don't count, since he doesn't import them.

The Sheltons import some great brews... just ask them.  ;) They are seriously weird, weird dudes.

I can believe that. Did anyone ever post the video from the Lambic Summit? Shelton talks more than half the time :shrug:
