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Frank Boon writes: Foeder # 10 was originally made for "Brauhaus Nurnberg" in Nurnberg, Germany in +/- 1890.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.

cask / hand-pump @ ‘t Antwaerps Bierhuiske // according to the owner 2 yr old & +/- 9 % ABV base beer for Marriage Parfait Geueze // given that there is no confirmation from the brewer that other higher alcohol old lambic’s save for this one has been sold by Boon // it was probably this & fits more here than with the 6 % version // clear golden with a very small white head // smell is lots of soap, tat lemon & barnyard funk // tastes like tart lemon, hay, soap, barnyard funk, slightly acid lemon, decent amount of brett // dry, flat & ridiculously drinkable, seriously // not the best ever but certainly interesting

Mortlach (1798) - Rome, ITALY - APR 10, 2012
08/04/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Intenso colore ambrato chiaro, lievemente torbido, buona schiuma persistente. Aroma intenso e penetrante di lieviti selvatici, mela, con note citriche. In bocca è acido ma senza eccessi, i 10 gradi alcolici non si sentono per niente, ma ammorbidiscono notevolmente l’acidità. In compenso il corpo eccessivo ne compromette la bevibilità. Non è uno dei lambic che preferisco.

Bottle shared in 4:20, Rome. Possibly courtesy of fonefan? It can be very hard to decipher my ramblings. Clear reddish orange with a thin off white head that faded quickly. Aroma has fruit, sugar, floorboards, a bit like someone has shit in the room next door and the smell has just wafted through. Initial smooth fruit is followed up by a a fair chunk of sweet and sour. Not really my kind of beer.

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2011
Draught at Craft Beer Co, London. Hazy orange brown color. Sweet and fairly sour aroma with grapefruit, orange, raspberry and hint of acetic acid. Thick sweet and sour flavor with grapefruit, citrus pith and hint of acetic acid. Tastes like a thick sweet very full bodied lambic. Great as such but somehow this asks for food, white cheeses for example.

Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2011
Tap at Craft beer co, this one pours a browny yellow, bit of hazy, the smell is of the tart sourness of lambics, the taste is pretty standard sourness a bit more sour then I would have liked but overall pretty good stuff

August 13, 2011 - draught at Craft Beer Co. How awesome is it that I got to have this before the keg kicked! Things were a little hectic when I rated this, but I have to say my lasting impression is ... MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! Hazy gold with minimal head. Aroma is a really nice subtle and balanced sweet generically fruity malt nicely balanced against a funky/yeasty acidic sourness with musty dry oak - yumm. The taste? well, 10%? not to my taste - perfect balance of complex acidity, funky/dusty-dry oak and enough almost syrupy sweet background .... whatever it is .... to keep it from melting my tooth enamel - frickin lovely stuff, I am sad I will never have it again. Thick, acidic, lively mouthfeel, long dry acidic finish, leaves a buzzing palate and memories of the barrel. Amazing.
