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.

0,375l Flasche in Brügge. Goldklares Bier mit heller Schaumkrone. Riecht ein Bischen nach Käse. Schmeckt fruchtig, malzig, spritzig nach vergorenen Äpfeln und Trauben. Gut!

Yorker (1466) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2014
Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy golden with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are wood, sour apples, tartness, and lemons - with a dry and slightly tart finish. High drinkability.

junon (427) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Wow. This fucking thing stinks! I absolutely love it. Amazing. Its a dusty attic. You want to delve more. Not super tart but balanced. Nearest fruit I would associate would be pure yuzu. Kind of tame on the front end but explodes there after. Last bottle of this EVER in my state. Honoured.

It pours golden with a slightly off white head. It has a tart and sweet smell. It also has the aroma of dried fruit. There are also yeast aromas. It has a tart taste with yeast. It has a bitter dry finish.

Icedwarf (572) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2014
Licht troebel geel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht zuur en droog, iets voller dan de white label. Verder niet echt veel verschil., dus ook deze is gewoon erg goed.

ineedbeer (1017) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 3, 2014
375 ml bottle with a cork date of HX 2014. Aroma is really nice with a balanced amount of acidity and citrus with a medium light woodsy, herbal character. Light tropical fruit notes with moderate barnyard, horse blanket character. Really nice aroma. Pours a slightly cloudy, golden orange with a big, rocky, white head that recedes fairly quickly. Flavor has a moderately strong acidity with light citrus notes and a hint of acetic acid. Light tropical fruit and a touch of a weird phenolic, herbal note. Moderate barnyard funk, but lighter than in the aroma. Light oak notes Medium light herbal, woodsy, earthy character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice beer. If the flavor could catch up to the aroma this would be amazing, but right now it is just really good.

Many thanks to ElManana for this bottle. Trübes orangegelbes Bier mit geringer aber stabilen leicht beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr fruchtig, leicht holzig, süß, dezente Säure. Geschmack angenehm säuerlich fruchtig, reifes Obst, sehr malzig, leicht holzig, vergorene Äpfel, gut!

jphartley (39) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
37.5 CL bottle, Bierkoning. Amsterdam. A sweet nose. White wine, hints of vinegar, fruits. Taste is quite sweet, wine like but with a slightly sour finish. It is quite well balanced but not one of my favourite Geuzes.
