3 Fonteinen Zwet.be is an unusual ale from Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen, world-famous for the lambics they brew and blend: it's a Belgian Porter (ABV 7.0%) brewed with wild yeasts cultured from their lambic casks.

Pouring near-black with a foamy tan head, its classic porter aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, and smoky coffee are complemented by sour cherry notes and a hint of vanilla.

Taste is of dark fruit and chocolate -- malty sweet and smoky, there's enough tart acidity from the wild yeast for balance. A creamy mouthfeel and a dry finish with some hop bitterness augment the satisfying taste.

3 Fonteinen is a lambic brewer and blender in Beersel, Belgium, founded in the 1880s and operated by the Debelder family since 1953.

In Dutch, 3 Fonteinen means "three fountains" and originally referred to the hand pumps that were used to serve the three types of beer at the inn: lambic, faro, and kriek.

In addition to lambics, 3 Fonteinen also produces several other non-lambic beers including a blonde, lager, porter, and witbier.
