COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered.
De houten ton is een Gallische uitvinding, die gebruikt werd voor het gisten als voor het bewaren van wijn als bier. Ten opzichte van de amforen hadden ze veel voordelen : ze waren lichter, konden een grotere inhoud bevatten, waren minder fragiel en waren ook nog handiger, want men kon ze rollen. De tonnen en pijpen die Breughel schilderde kunnen zo afkomstig zijn uit het tonnenmagazijn van elke Pajottenlandse lambikbrouwer (of daar nog staan ...). Houten tonnen werden algemeen gebruikt tot het begin van de vorige eeuw.

VDuquerroux (924) - Airvault, FRANCE - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle, 37.5cL. @Le Trappiste, Brugge. A golden orange-yellow opaque beer ; many small bubbles ; big white foamy head ; good retention. Wood, acid, barnyard, "earth", herb, apple. Medium sour, light to medium sweet, dry refreshing. Light to medium body, thin texture, average to soft carbonation, sour woody dry refreshing finish. Overall, a delicious gueuze ; nice woody acid barnyard character ; nice soursweet balance which makes it really drinkable.

M82 (445) - Kansas, USA - FEB 6, 2016
A clear peachy, golden amber body displays a few slowly climbing streamers of tiny bubbles reaching up to a short frothy tight white head which settles back to a solid ring with some cap coverage... Several small dots of lace slowly return to the ring on each sip

Refined and clean with strong balance, solid complexity, and medium intensity... Fleshy tropical fruit is wrapped in wood and mild funk stank with light acid and sourness (maybe a touch of skunkiness from the green bottle) leading to a creamy, almost marshmallow like note which works with the fruit components to conjure bubble gum... Underlying nuances of almond, flowers, honeydew, watermelon, strawberries, and hay rolling into orange and grapefruit on a nicely cohesive, smooth, medium body with restrained carbonation lending a smooth creamy coating offering light residuals of the previously mentioned components combining to offer a sense of white wine with mild acidity and dryness... Finishes a bit on the sweet side with a medium plus feel... Highly approachable

12.7 FL. OZ. cork and cage bottle with 2016 cork stamped with 02, served at 54º into Orrefors Taster Beer glass

Garrold (3353) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2016
750ml bottle. Restobieres, Brussels. Cloudy, orange gold. No head, save for a bubble or two, rising from the bottom of the glass. Nose has a brown sugar sweetness. Some baked apple. Woody, damp and fusty. Some mouldy lemon. Pretty complex for a beer at 5%. Taste is dry, tart, and woody bitter. Cleansing palate. Some acidity. Finishes tart, and dry without losing the baked apple sweetness.

ChtiBreizh (399) - Rennes, FRANCE - JAN 17, 2016
37,5 cl bottle, freshly brewed. Damp, funky, tart. Low sweetness, very sour. Somewhat leafy and bitter. I find some other gueuzes more balanced.

HopTsing (506) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2016
This is not a beer that I have any business rating because I think it sucks from start to finish. Out of the bottle poured a thick golden brew with little head. It stinks like a sweaty wino and taste like sour ka-ka. Glad I didn’t buy pay money for it. Don’t like sour beers in general.

tia (1476) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle. Golden orange with thin head. Smells at first like a really robust classic german lager, then had some grapiness, tartness, and rubberiness. Nice funky tartness.

adamnase (293) - Kronoby, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle from boxbeers. dk (2015). Pours hazy golden amber with an off-white head. lasting. Aroma of lemon, sweat, the woodpile, apples. Forget the taste for a minute, the texture is just that good: alive, slippery, some creaminess, a little sharpness. Sour funky and quite woody. Some apricots, apples, grapes. Lemon in start... WOW!
