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.

Hazy golden in the glass with lots of fizz but not really any head. Massively sour on the nose - plenty of vinegar. Excellently musty really makes you lick your lips! Sour, sour, sour magnifique!

From bottle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of wood, tart, fuuuunk and barnyard. Taste is lots of funk, really sour, complex and wonderfully balanced. Worth way more than asking price.
