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.

Either I got a bad bottle of this., or I am really swimming against the tide. I’ve enjoyed other lambics I’ve had, but this was terrible (maybe it’s just the gueze style I don’t like). This poured a champagne color with little head and some carbonation. Unfortunately, both the nose and taste were a rancid mixture of very sour apples and vinegar. Early on, I kept thinking maybe the sour would be followed by a sweet sensation, a la Flemish Sours, but instead, it just kept getting more sour and acidic. Ended up cleaning the drain.

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.

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.

Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Smell has a soft sweetness to it. Taste is dry and tart but with a soft and lasting finish.

Bottle to chouffe glass. Orange color. Minimal head. Maybe a little ring. Sour and fruity aroma. Taste follows. I’m getting lots of tart apple. Finishes dry.

Bottle at home. Smells of fresh apples, some sourness there too. Color is orange with a nice bubbly head. Taste is dry, acid and a little bit less sour than other gueuzes. Good one!

Frankly, I was pretty disappointed by this. Bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontinas. Poured surprisingly clear, with some floaties in the bottom. Long lasting white head that stayed on the sides of the glass. Overly sweet for my liking, changing how the sourness came across. Citrus flavours. Who knows, maybe it wasn’t the best bottle.

0.375l bottle. Hazy dark golden body, white head. Aroma of mostly champagne-like yeast and brett, but it also has some fruity notes and some leather. Taste of grapefruit, apple cider and wood. Sour and dry at the same time. I liked the white label more, but this one is also nice.
