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.

Flaska rose red cafe, brygge. Orange lätt grumlig kulör. Blommig och stallig doft. Citron och hö. Smak av trä, citron, jord, vinäger och halm. En ganska mogen geuze med viss sötma och diskret syra och torr avslutning.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thin white head/lacing. Aromas of green tart apples, vinegar, yeast, funk, lemon, citrus. Taste is dry, sour, but not without sweetness. Really a crisp, tart taste.

Very nice apple and barn aromas. Very accessible actually despite the significant sourness. Will developed, perhaps not the most woody or complex but I enjoyed it a lot. (375cl bottle from Dekoninck),
