Frank Boon writes: Foeder # 10 was originally made for "Brauhaus Nurnberg" in Nurnberg, Germany in +/- 1890.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

Draught@Craft Beer Co, London. Hazy ambery golden colour, small head. Aroma is peach, sour/tart wood, some slight yeasty and earthy notes as well. Flavour is very pleasantly balanced sweet and sour notes with mild fruity and wooden notes. Totally beautiful brew.

Draught at Craft Beer Co. Orange-amber color, flat and glowing. Lovely nose: grapefruit, yogirt, dust, rich malts, and touch of caramel and all kinds of fruit. Big sweet-and-sour flavor, with yogurt, wood, grapefruit and its zest, apricot, and almost canned peaches. Unbelievably drinkable for 9.9%! I’ve never had anything like it, a strong, easy-drinking lambic. Really great. Prefect light carbonation as well.

Scopey (11525) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2011
Tap at MesandSim’s crazy wedding party & at the Craft Beer Co! It pours clear orange, with no head or carbonation. The nose is farmyard, red apple, strawberry, salt and vinegar. The taste is tart lemon and lime, orange zest, mango, farmyard, eggy tartness, sour Granny Smith apple and pear, with a moderate tart finish. The flavour is very balanced and I still can’t believe that this is 10%, it was just so drinkable.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2011 It’s amazing I remember drinking this because I kept up while Alex actually managed to get Chris hungover drunk. Thanks man! Translucent red-amber, thin white head, small bubbled. Lightly acetic nose brings cherry, also has rubber band brett. Acetic flavor shows some acetone, balsamic cherry, brown sugar. Sticky body, moderate carbonation.

Boon born to be wild. on tap at mikkeller... Pours a deeper apple cidery orange brown pour. Thin flimsy barely just off-white head... Aroma of sharp, mostly sour gueuze aroma, somewhat green still and fresh... Flavors are sharp and sour, not acidic. Curly akin to a sweeter gueuze. Resembles 3fomt straffe winter as a stronger, boozy type of lambic. Heavier bodied for a sour given the strength but doesn’t take away from it overall. Pretty lively carbonation that holds up well actually. 8/4/7/4/15

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 Tap at 4:20, Rome. Pours hazy gold with a thick, white head. Sharp, leathery, sour fruit nose. Lightly sweet, heavy grass, leather, hay, some sharp fruits. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Tangy, modest sour finish, slight sugars, some wood and leather. Bit of kick. Nice. (4.0)

Keg at Mikkeller & Friends - Copenhagen. Still very good stuff. Quite dry, lots of grassy bite. (3.8)

On tap at Mikkeller Bar as Boon to be Wild. Cloudy, deep golden colour. Solid lemony lambik nose, hints of wood as well. Biting dry, woody, hints of talc, lemony flavours. Great to see Boon making some wild stuff, too.
