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.

37.5 cage and cork bottle. Not nearly as sour as I expected. Has some sour but nothing close to the 3F OG. Some funky yogurt on the aroma as it warms up. A bit metallic on the back end.

Fritz123 (898) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle at home shared with Dan. Pours a clean golden color with a small head that lasted around the ring. Small snifters. Aroma is funk, barn, apples, white grapes, slight vinegar, slight fart, and animal hair. The taste was tart fruits like pears, apples, apricots, white grapes along with a funky barnyard. Very light body, crisp and refreshing overall. Tart finish with the fruits that lasted on the palate. The only drawback was the egg/farty aroma.

Torrefacto (494) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 3, 2014
Color ámbar claro, espuma blanca ligera. Aromas de fruta verde, herbales y brett. En boca es ligera y fresca con un intenso sabor de frutas verdes bien equilibrado entre la ácidez y el dulzor y muy elegante. El regusto sigue siendo afrutado y fresco. Muy rica.

Ambro206 (90) - ITALY - APR 29, 2014
Una gueuze fenomenale. Maltazione e luppolatura donano a questa birra un insieme di sapori bilanciato ed armonico pur senza ammazzare l’acidità tipica dello stile. Imperdibile!

Andy_ (629) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 29, 2014
Orange hazy beer with a persistent small white head. Aroma has typical lambic aromas such as vinegar, white wine and saddle leather but also lots of fruity sweetness. Flavor is fruity dry with white grapes, sourness, citrus and apricot. Palate is medium full and sparkling. Finish is sour, crisp and bitter. A refreshing gueuze, a good balance between sweet and sour.

Hoprider (105) - DENMARK - APR 26, 2014
Clear golden pour with a quickly disapearing white head. The nose has lots of sour apples and barnyardy notes and even slight handbag too.. The mouthfeel is light and lively with a perfect amount of carbonation. The taste is really refreshing with lots of funk, sour apples and just general tartness all over. A real go-to gueuze

allmyvinyl (2740) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2014
375ml bottle from beergusto. Pours clear gold, thick white head, which high carbonation keeps in place. Aromas are cider apples, barnyard hay, funk. Taste is sour lemons, more apples, like raw cooking apples. Medium body, crisp sour finish. Lovely.

SimonTja (214) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Pours yellow with a disappearing head. Aroma is barnyard, very earthy, some hay, very complex. Taste is of grapefruit rind, some lemony, a lot of hay, some tonic inputs, taste a lot better warmer and it’s not very carbonated which is highly appreciated.
