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Frank Boon writes: Foeder # 10 was originally made for "Brauhaus Nurnberg" in Nurnberg, Germany in +/- 1890.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

Ungstrup (29988) - 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.

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, as Boon to be Wild
Hazy amber color, with a distinctive fine perlage. The aroma is very wild indeed, also pervasive, full and fulfilling, moldy cellar, with old timber beams and barrels...
The body is strong and quite round, with malt and strong Bretts flavor; there is some residual sweetness, and a light fruity touch; also a very nice vinous touch; the sourness is not aggressive. There is also some alcohol presence, and this is probably the only note out of tune here.

harrisoni (14626) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2011
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.
