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.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 The fully traditional ’oude’ geuze Girardin, 100% lambic and no sugar added. Hazy orange blonde colour, thinnish off-white head. Exceptionally rich and complex aroma, lots of fruitiness, citric acid and lactic acid in perfect balance, sour cream, dry sherry, hay and all the funkiness offered by the best of lambics. Taste has all the barnyard one would expect from a traditional lambic beer, vinegar, yoghurt and lemon, sour fruits, all in perfect balance, long and very complex finish, woody and funky in a totally elegant way. Its elegance and balance make it the best of the regularly produced geuzes, at least to my opinion. Masterpiece and a great advertisement for the utter complexity of the products of lambic land.

750ml 2003 vintage at Akkurat with Taylor. Pours light orange, with white head that drops to a layer of bubbles. Aroma is subtle, nice funky zest, very low acidity, Gueuze. Taste is refreshing Gueuze with very low acidity, at 11 years of age this thing is drinking absolutely fantastic. Rounded citrus funkiness that is light and refreshing, complex. This is exactly even with drie Fonteinen for me, if not superior (though I have not had black label fresh yet)

Ik drink graag geuze, maar dit was absoluut mijn ding niet. De smaak beviel me absoluut niet.

Wundervolles Lambic, das dirch eine kräftige, jedoch nicht brutale Säure besticht. Nuancen von pfirsichen, himbeeren, etwas buttersäure und gar zucker. Fein, balanciert, würzig.
