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.

"Murky" color and extremely "beer" taste. Not my favorite, but it has some qualities which I see how others can appreciate.

Tasty and refreshig. Classy and tasty stuff.
Unclear lovely golden color with a fine white head. Solid intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a pleasant carbonation. Mellow and fine acidity. Green apples, wood, citric and a bit funky.

mariuspoenari (1095) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
37cl bottle. Hazy orange pour with a tall white head. Smells like sodium bicarbonate, sulphur, barnyard funk and apple cider. The taste is more balanced than the white label, with notes of apple cider, vinegar, salt, sodium bicarbonate and barnyard funk. High carbonation with a dry and bitter finish. This stuff’s actually good!

Kauge (1322) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2016
Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Poured hayish orange with white head. On the nose it’s sugary sweet and apple cidery, acidic fruity, tastes of apple cider and stone fruit sweetness, finishing in strong apple seed bitterness, and almost lime juice acidity. Dry and dusty, yet extremely crisp on the palate. Stickiness restrained. Would love this paired with the unfiltered one. Probably perfect in summer at some garden party. Wouldn’t dare drink more than 1 small bottle though, I don’t have guts of steel unfortunately.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is funky and sour, barnyard, dusty, dry, straw, really good. Appearance is amber golden, off white head, somewhat hazy. Taste is funky, grape skins, tart, barnyard, almost wine-like in its tannins. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, grape skins and tannins aftertaste. Overall, this one is real good.

375 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a darker golden orange color with a thin white film of head that falls to a bubbly collar leaving a couple spots of lace. The aroma is very funky and sour. There’s a nice balance of barnyard and fruit skins. The bright fruit is nice for this being a standard gueuze. The flavor is definitely more dank and funky than I was expecting. The fruit skins are really nice there is a good dry sourness to go with the dusty barnyard. The finish is surprisingly juicy and not sour at all. The mouth feel is a little lacking. It’s a bit syrupy and under carbonated with a lingeringly juicy fruit skin on the aftertaste. It’s an interesting beer for sure, but just wasn’t what I was looking for in a solid gueuze.
