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. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly but laces well. Aroma is yeast, tart citrus, white wine, wood, funk. Flavor same, medium sour with a sour lingering finish. Very nice gueuze.

ChinoSkillzian (158) - The Hills, California, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Drank many times, most recently at Bobby’s Girardin tasting. Pours a hazy darker yellow with medium foam. Aroma of damp oak, lemon, barnyard funk, wet earth. Pure lambic palate, with flavors of lime, old oak barrel, wet hay, acid, almost Champagne-like red fruit. Dry, pure and super refreshing, outstanding.

Franzen (286) - SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2014
Tart funky aroma, overripe fruits, goose berries, manure and stable, but in a good way. Hazy orange white head. Sour tart taste, bit of bitterness but very subtle, mostly dry tartness, some strawberries. Light lively carbonation very dry. Fantastic, just what I want from a Geuze

RickTheRick (323) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Une mousse plutôt timide s’installe sur une robe blonde aux reflets orangés. Des odeurs funky et de pommes vertes explosent au nez et sont précurseurs d’une bière à l’acidité prenante en bouche. Cette acidité est en effet dominante sans jamais toutefois être désagréable. Pommes, citrons et céréales s’allient pour former des gorgées délicieuses à chaque fois. Superbe.

Purchased @ 3 Rivers of Longmont. Poured golden/copper. Sediment in bottle neck. Defined barnyard horse blanket flavor. True to style.

ForlornHope (17) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
75cl bottle chilled for about an hour. Cork came out with explosive force, decanted into a jug. Citrussy and sour aroma. Beautiful orange-gold colour with a small off-white head. Taste is wonderful, lemon/grapefruit with a sour edge. Lively feel on the tongue, with more citrus balanced with a small amount of sweetness. Ends dry, leaving you wanting more. Truly an outstanding beer. Quenching and yet satisfying, light on alcohol means this is a great summer drinker. Will be having another bottle as this is one experience I don’t want to end.

375 ml bottle at home. Pours a hazy golden color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma and flavor have sour lemon citrus, tart apples and peaches, barnyard funk, Brett, some acidity. This is easy to drink even with the funk and sour character.
