A special keg only "single foeder strong lambic". 100 kegs produced.

Frank Boon writes: Foeder # 10 was originally made for "Brauhaus Nurnberg" in Nurnberg, Germany in +/- 1890. The staves are 90 mm thick and the content is 6800 lit. It survived the destruction of Nurnberg in WW II because it was shipped to France for wineaging in Gigondas. Ten years ago it came to Boon Brewery, it had 4 times Lambic and in 2007 it was used for a strong Lambic to age for 3 years. One american lady that tasted it said it was "Boon to be Wild". Maybe a good name to use.

cpetrone84 (1372) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Long night at Brasserie 420 during the summer of 2011. Who says you don’t shoot pappy...multiple times. Review from notes. Pour is transparent golden amber with tight off white head. The nose has a light fruit and cheese rind with vinegar and light acetic acid in back. Taste is earthy with notes of cheese and golden fruits. Light vinegar and stronger acetic acid in back. Body is a touch heavy and creamy with low carbonation.
