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Frank Boon writes: Foeder # 10 was originally made for "Brauhaus Nurnberg" in Nurnberg, Germany in +/- 1890.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

On tap at 4:20 bar in Rome. Copper with vague haze. Lasting white head. Sour characterful aroma. Really interesting in mouth with a mixture of wood and blue cheese. Really in teresting and really quite lovely. Alcohol makes it a little sweet I guess. But took me ages to drink just because it was interesting.

On tap at The Trappist in Oakland. Hazy golden-orangish-reddish color with basically no head. Great funky lambic aroma, earthy and musty with honey and a hint of sweaty -bals. The flavor is excellent. Funky with a good amount of malty sweetness - but not too much by any means. The blanket of the horse is evident. Medium-bodied with minimal carbonation and milder acidity. A very nice lambic, which even compared well to Cantillon beers.

10% Oude lambik? Had to give this one a try. Coming after sampling a couple stellar fruit lambics from Cantillon, the contrast was huge. Very light on carbonation a virtually no head. Deep gold appearance. Sweet aroma with honey, toffee, and complex Brett fruitiness and dusty bite. Huge body and sweetness for a lambik. There is no mistaking this for less than its strength. The acidity is there with a nice vinous touch, but the body and sweetness (toffee and honey again) almost completely obscure it. Light boon farmyard character sharpening things up but pretty mellow. Smooth stuff overall. Warming in the finish. This is like the barley wine of the lambic family. A true keeping beer.

Hand tapped on plastic bottle 2 weeks prior to tasting. ’Boon To Be Wild’. Pours a pale golden colour with a small greyish-white head. Brett aroma. Sugary sweet. Notes of horse blanket. Flavour is tart to sour with brett notes. Horse blanket. Dry. Finish is dry, bitter and sour. Overall pretty good, but a bit one-sided. 25.09.10.

Buono al naso, molto interesssante, pero troppo acetilico e fastidioso a lungo andare.
