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. Pours cloudy light orange with high head that gradually torn itself. Aroma is lambic basement, hint of maize and wheat. Flavor is sour with some sweet tones, malty with a hint of dried hops.

Lukaduke (2937) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a orange golden color with two finger of white gaseous foam. Lots of complex stonefruit, citrus and straight up cobweb basement funk. Great harmony of flavors with the musty fruit evolving from bright citrus to soft fuzzy peach all the while being wrapped in a funky dusty wet basement complexity. Dry on the finish and a real pleasure to drink !

Never rated this & hadn’t seen it on the shelves for a few years. 2014 375 ml. Red orange pour, low carb. Nose is lemon rind, caramel, slight must. Taste is lemon rind, sweet caramel, some leather. Lots of sweet caramel leading into tart lemon. I’ve never had this aged and have never been a big fan of it fresh. I loved Bierpalieters though so I will definitely age the next bottle of this I come across.

TychoJames (1003) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2016
Flaska rose red cafe, brygge. Orange lätt grumlig kulör. Blommig och stallig doft. Citron och hö. Smak av trä, citron, jord, vinäger och halm. En ganska mogen geuze med viss sötma och diskret syra och torr avslutning.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thin white head/lacing. Aromas of green tart apples, vinegar, yeast, funk, lemon, citrus. Taste is dry, sour, but not without sweetness. Really a crisp, tart taste.

erickok (5171) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2016
Very nice apple and barn aromas. Very accessible actually despite the significant sourness. Will developed, perhaps not the most woody or complex but I enjoyed it a lot. (375cl bottle from Dekoninck),

Leini (1775) - SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2016
375ml bottle. Slughtly hazy amber body with a low white head. Barnyard, citrus, hay, wheat & fruit hits the nose. Similar flavor, followed by a distinct zesty finish. Gets more sweet & fruity as it warms up. High co2.
