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. Hazy golden orange color with a huge frothy head. Sour, fruity aroma. As expected the taste, after a fleeting sweetness, is lemony and grapefruity and ends with some dryness. Very easy to drink and enjoy.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2004
An extremely explosive beer - about half of it ran over when I opened it. The color is an unclear dark orange and it has a beutiful though collapsing orange head. The aroma is lovely of grapefruit but also with notes of wood. The flavor is very nicely sour with notes of grapefruit, wood, and lemon. The sourness draw the mouthwater.

(Bottle 37,5 cl) Hazy, amber golden with floating impurities and an off-white head. Sourish, vinous aroma with some wood. Medium body, lightly sweet caramel and a distinct sourness. Again these lovely wooden flavours. Sour finish. 090507

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2002
Pale amber coloured. Extremely complex with balanced, tart acidity. One of few beers that combines being both very flavourful and very refreshing.

Light amber color; big head; persistent perlage. Soft nose, woody and acetic; white pepper; harmonious, really interesting. Good balance of tartness, sourness, maltiness; wood, magnesia, light residual sweetness. Thanks to Philippe (Bov) for this bottle.

saxo (13455) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2012 Bottle. Huge head with excellent duration. Color is hazy golden. Aroma and taste are sour with lots of lactose acid, but still fairly mild and sweet in comparison to other gueze beers. Very enjoyable. Rerated at fonefan tasting.
