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.

Naka (707) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2012
Pours a clear golden amber with a small white fizz. Aroma citric and funky with a lot of minerally bandaid in a good way. There is a slight underlying sweetness as well. Flavor is wonderfully sour and pungent. Lots of great lambic character. Excellent beer.

danlo (1222) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
375ml bottle from beermerchants.com. Clear deep orange-gold amber colour, frothy white foam head leaving lacing and aroma of zesty lemon rind, wood, funk, yeasty. Taste is sour tangy lemon citrus, woody notes, fruity yeasty, barnyard, some bitterness. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry sour and bitter finish. Lovely stuff, very drinkable!

Luk_ (191) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Multiple bottles, both aged and fresh. This rating is for a fresh sample. Clear copper-orange with a white head that receeds in a lasting ring of foam. Aroma is classic barnyard that you get from the best gueuzes, green apples, brett, grain, hay. Funk is rather moderate. Taste is deliciously tart, wood, leather, lemon and a light fruity sweetness. One of the most quaffable fresh gueuze out there. Among the best, definitly the best quality/price ratio you can get.

375ml bottle served in a tulip. Corked bottle. REF C X 2013 stamped in the cork. Made big pop when opened. A: Pours a golden bit cloudy yellow color forming a huge white fluffy and highly bubbled head. Good retention. The head never disappears completely, leaving tons of lacings and chunks of foam in the glass S: Very fruity as expected. Strong notes of white grapes and green apples. Tart and vinegar. Light notes of grains. Lambic yeasts. A little bit metallic too T: Very fruity and tart. Not extremely tart. In fact, the first sip is quite tart but from the second you can realise that this is a considerably smooth wild beer. Strong notes of white grapes and green apples. Lambic yeasts are also bit earthy. In overall, a dry beer with intense tartness. End is a bit bitter and metallic M: Light body. Extreme carbonation. Tart and fruity aftertaste O: Very drinkable. Extremely smooth and easy drinking Gueuze. In the same level of a Drie Fonteinen or a Cantillon. Mandatory to wild beer lovers [ BA Review @ 11/11/2012 ]

AbouAli (25) - Genève, SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2014
!!! Attention !!! commentaire suite à une dégustation de bière vieille 3 ans en cave ! Belle mousse qui dure longtemps. Nez brett, avec une touche de fromage et d’umami. Belle complexité avec une légèreté. Très belle durée avec un goût très équilibre. Acidité noble et pas agressive. Encore meilleure avec le temps, plus la bouteille vieille plus elle devient meilleure ?

Wow I’m surprised given the price. Plums and apricot, nice sourness. Well balanced gueuze with a beautiful color. I Love it!

Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle at home. Vintage 2010. Pours a hazy oransje colour with a medium, off-white head. Aroma of rowanberries, oak, forest floor, citrus and some horse. The flavour follows up with more berries, oak, grapefruit, apple, citrus and cider. Has a soft and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A great and well balanced gueuze. Solid one.

PapaVillum (469) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
37,5 cl, flaske, 5,0 % ABV, købt i Barley Wine i CPH City, 14. september 2014. Kobberfarvet og ufiltreret Geueze med mindre hvid 1 cm tyk skumkrone, som svinder langsomt. Aromaen er ikke kæmpe tydelig, men der er noter af grapefrugt, appelsinskal, citrus, stald og Brettanomyces gær. Smagen er sur, men velafbalanceret på en lidt uforklarlig måde. Smagen mildnes til noget bittert sidst i billedet og afsluttes meget pludseligt, men det bitter/sure hænger lidt ved. Opsummering: middel til kraftig sur, let bitter og zero sødme. I munden er der øl med medium fyldig krop og en del kuldioxid, som kun får det bedre at stå lidt og bruse af. Konsistensen er oily til cremet. Måske den bedst afbalancerede Geueze, jeg har smagt og fortræffelig til at balancere en ølaften, tænker jeg.
