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.

Light amber with medium off-white head. Sweet and sour aroma. Sourness in the taste is well balanced with certain sweetness followed by remaining soft bitterness.

fkoolen (484) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2015
37,5cl bottle at Van Moll brewpub, Eindhoven. Slightly hazy orange colour, slim foamy white head. White grapes, citrus fruity and light vinegar tardness, vanilla cask, very light barnyard earthy tones, malts are sweetening, smooth but dry finish. Fruity aftertaste. High carbonation, good body.

The_Osprey (2781) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cad’s. 5%. No date unfortunately. I picked it up 3 years ago. Hazy orange, small foamy white head, still. Aroma is lemon, earthy, sour. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is dry, lemony, floral, juicy, finishes crisp with an acidic linger. Good.

Dr_Fellini (722) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a nice burnt orange color with an off white head. Aroma is a delicious tart fruits, light belgian yeast. Flavor has a good sour to it with a touch of sweetness to balance it out. Excellent gueuze!

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2015 Personally my favorite gueuze. Sour, yet balanced and complex beer. Marveously refreshing. Very nice when a little aged.

Hamirubi (170) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2015
15cl at the Ghent Beer Festival in 2014. In the glass one gets a lovely golden look. A very sour beer, even for a gueuze style. The finish is very nice. A genuine, great, tasteful beer of Girardin.
