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.

Bottle at home from Dranken Geers. Aroma is funk, rubber and chive, sick, with a light sharpness Golden orange colour with a light light white froth. Flavour is horsey, funk, pineapple, apple, some grape skins, and nice tartness / puckering. Very aproachable and drinkable and very complex. Nice effervesent medium carbonation and super dry finish. Tasty.

Fruity and funky. Very sour. Vinegary. Really enjoyed it, but it’s hard to compare it against non-sour beers.

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Cork: Dx 2011 (dunno what this means) A: pours a toasted honey ale with a single finger of bone white foam which falls to a sheet of the same. There is spotty lacing over the excellently clarified beer. S: Huh, excellent mix of lemon, tart, feces (barn style), hay, mammal hair, and more sourness. Well balanced nose; which I don’t think I’ve ever said about a beer.... Really digging this nose, not too farmy and funky, not too sour and abrasive. T: Lemon. Strait up lemons. Okay, okay, maybe hints of calcific rinds, some nice earth tones. You know, when I review a Geuze, I’m always uncertain how to really articulate all the nuances of the beer. It’s fucked (my brain). By the way, this is good. M: Light body, hi carb; spot on for the style. Dry finish. O: Good stuff. I’m really happy about this one. I really dig the balance on the nose, additionally the flavor profile is really satisfying. Man, I wish this genre were more accessible and less expensive.. Serving type: bottle 08-18-2011

freretoc (443) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 15, 2013
Bu en bouteille de 37.5cl, une jolie bière qui mousse parfaitement, en bouche on ressent un grand côté abricot fruit jaune, un vrai plaisir à ressentir.

Bottle - Funky sour lemon and grass. Cloudy gold with a bubbly white head. Tart lemon and horse blanket. Tartness follows into finish and cleanly disappears.
