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Frank Boon writes: Foeder # 10 was originally made for "Brauhaus Nurnberg" in Nurnberg, Germany in +/- 1890.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

Handbottled by Theis. Thanks! It pours hazy deep golden with a small white head. The aroma is acidic, ripe fruit, apples and lots of wood. The flavour is wood, dry acidic, light brett and ripe fruit. Nice one!

Draught during sour weekend at Mikkellerbar, b-day present from evil stepdad. Hazy deep orange look with no head. Woody molden sourness in the aroma, Nutty sour flavor with tasrt berries and lots of phenols, too much actually for my liking. Dry alchoholic finish.

Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours muddy orange with a small, creamy, white film head. Lovely aroma, fruity, light tart, some slight rubber, citric, green apples and light vinousness. Medium carbonation, light and mildly dry palate. Flavour is soft, tart, some apples, light warming. But that’s all I feel of the high ABV. Oaky and kinda earthy bitterness. Long, oaky and dry finish. Nice and very easily drinkable.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2010 On tap at Mikkeller. Pours hazy amber with no head. It has a nice aroma dominated by wood, earth and dry grape. Flavour is similar with some apple fruitiness and leather to it. Pleasant brew but slightly of balance.
