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.

presario (4884) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2005
Gift from Secret Santa. Arrived frozen and leaking a little. Drank the next day. Very cloudy orange. Still poured with a big bubbly head and had a lasting lacing. Aroma of vinnegar and cheese. Deeper aroma of sour citrus. At the tip of the tongue the flavour is citrus. The back of the tongue and finish are shocked with a sour blast. Successive sips are more balanced front to back. Occassional twinges in the eyes from the sourness. Mouthdrying. Very interesting. I think it survived the shock. Thanks Santa.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 3, 2005
12oz bottle from goldtwins shared with JoshuaH. Explosive out the bottle with a hazy orange color and a foamy white head that recedes down to leave a small film. Nose is barnyard, grass and hay, the nose itself is sour and citrus fruity. Taste is sour and fizzy up front, light notes of orange and lemon, quite sour and grassy, very earthy. Finishes with a pucker face in the end and a light filmy palate.

MIBRomeo (2569) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2010 orangish color thick beautiful white head some nice lacing. Some horse blanket scent a bunch of sour fruits lightly salty aroma some leather maybe some apple.. definately yeasty. Pal is super fizzy aggressive and coated. Flavor is a touch bitter almost over carbonated some strong bitter apples and hints of pear very bitter. Decent stuff. *UPDATE 2010 Definite horse blanket in the aroma, very earthy very sour lots of fruits (AR: +1) Still as sour as I always remembered, but not as overpowering as i thought last time I rated it. much more mellow than I expected but very complex and enjoyable.

shadey (1986) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 23, 2005
I was suprised that the bottle opened so uneventfully. No explosion, no foam, just a nice pop. Bright orange color, no head. I have this pretty cold, so I’m sure the aroma will get stronger as the temp goes up. Currently it is pretty mild as far as gueuze’s go. Plenty of complexity in the strongly acidic flavor. Lots of citric and bitter fruit with a dry palate that scrapes the roof of your mouth. I coughed after the first gulp. Now that I have gotten started its pretty easy to consume in big gulps. Tasty.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2005
( botlle 37.5 cl; 4 months over time) Gold-yellow colour, bit cloudy. Overwhelming aroma/ Soft taste in the beginning, strong at the end, heavy carbonation. Finish is saur but still fruity, but very enjoyable which lasts long. A Grand-cru under the Gueuze’s.

zathrus13 (1735) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Pours cloudy gold, with a large, white head. Aromas are loads of lemon and yeast, with some mustiness too. Flavor is sour lemon, with yeast, and apples in there as well. Thanks to Mullman for this bottle.

Christian (11701) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2009 Orange golden beer with a small white head. Lemon and grapefruit dominates the aroma with notes of wood, leather and green meadow. Dry and tart, refreshing juicy flavour with a long lasting grapefruit peel tartness and bitterness. Exceptionally drinkable.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Clear orange golden pour with a thick bubbly white head. As soon as I stick my nose in the glass a wave of musty cheese hits me, followed by wafting acidity and fruits. After I swallow the first sip I’m amazed by this beer’s class and elegance. This is a fine and delicate tightly woven tapestry dedicated to must, cheese, acidity and fruits coated by dust and cobwebs. This work of art instills strong emotions in me, happyness, peace, I also feel extremely relaxed. This is an unforgettable experience, a true masterpiece.
