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Frank Boon writes: Foeder # 10 was originally made for "Brauhaus Nurnberg" in Nurnberg, Germany in +/- 1890.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

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.

Fad: Samme problem som calvaen, for min smag mangler der karbonering for at gøre det til en god oplevelse. Der er en meget lille smule i denne øl, tilgengæld er smagen en kende mere endimensioneret. Drikbar, bestemt, men hvad bliver alkoholen brugt til. Og giv mig nu en dråbe CO2 :)

Ungstrup (29281) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Draft. An unclear dark golden beer with no head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, horseblanket, wood, and grapefruits. The flavor is sweet with an underlying sourness and notes of over ripe fruits, fresh grapefruit, and phenols, laying a thin layer on the tongue. The finish is tart and the grapefruit note lingers.
