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. Unclear golden-yellow or honey color with white, fine and elegant head. Pretty delicate aroma with wild nature: acid-fruit tones, slightly citrus, pear, a little hay from meadows, wet skin, oak. Taste: very complex, layered, sparkling acidity, lemon, pomelo and grapefruit, bitterness of oak, a bit sweetness of a ripe grapefruit, dry, great balance. True masterpiece.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 375ml bottle from trade with SlovakSniper. Thanks man. Drank this one as a sign of support to Belgium. Heart and thoughts going out to them on this sad day... Aroma: green apples, lemon, citrus, hay, a tad dusty. App: cloudy golden with medium white head and good retention and great lacing. Taste and palate: light body, light sweetness, moderate carbonation, light sweetness and lingering dry light bitter finish. Overall: good stuff. I find it way better than the white label. Also compared to other gueuze I find it way less dusty or barnyard. Different... And I like it. I think for someone starting drinking lambics, this one is a good starter since it?s easy to drink since it?s well balanced between the sweetness and the acidity. Nothing really stands out. Really well made.

0,375l bottle, 2016 version. Light golden hay colour, medium carbonation, smells sour apples, little bit of funk, cinnamon. Taste citric, dry, medium sour, more herbal and lemony tartness. Very dry. Great gueuze as it is.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4466) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 10, 2016
750ml bottle that poured a fantastically clear orange-gold into my tumbler with a dense head of foam that grips the sides of the glass and lingers for ages. This beauty gives off a scent of funk, a bit of skunkiness and an underlying lactic tartness. Light bodied and silky with a round carbonation. Wonderfully balanced flavor that on my first taste gave me cinnamon hearts but later on gives me lemon, lactic tartness, brief hints of cinnamon and funky earthiness. This is really really nice and became even better with a sushi roll that balanced out some of the acidity. Top quality.

One of the greats. Tart, sour, complex. Green apples, but not overly so. Crisp, full of flavour. Go-to geueze for me.

Aroma - is tart, some funk, barnyard, spice, and some woody notes. Appearance - body is a clean amber, with a 2" white head. Taste - slightly sweet, tart, and spiced funk. There is barnyard, sweat, and some woody notes. Dry pear on the back-end. Palate - on the light side of medium, lively carbonation, and a dry slightly funky and woody finish.
