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.

2012 bottle that’s been sitting around for a few months. Cork comes out readily. The aroma of this beer is an experience on its own - apple, hay, lemon rind, and a pronounced herbal funk (including some lightstruck character). Deep gold in color with a slight haze. This particular bottle was unusual because it raised a substantial head of foam that lasted. Taste follows the aroma with a nicely balanced acidity. Apple peel, lemon rind, grain, hay, and an intriguing funk. A fantastic balance of each individual character. Prickly carbonation. Mouthfeel is appropriately dry and champagne-like. Possibly not the most "challenging" gueuze, but probably my favorite for its balance of funk, fruit, and acid.

rekvium (160) - Odense C, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2015
From bottle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of wood, tart, fuuuunk and barnyard. Taste is lots of funk, really sour, complex and wonderfully balanced. Worth way more than asking price.

anstei (531) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 27, 2015
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. Oh yes, the unfiltered one with the black label really is a lot better! Well balanced sourness, funk, crispness. Ah, what a beer...

fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 26, 2015
375 ml from Amity Wine in New Haven. About as "heavy" as a 5.0% ABV beer can possibly be. Hardly any discernible malts or hops, but still loaded with flavor. Layers and layers of thick, sour, funk. This is seriously one of the best gueuzes out there.

villevav (373) - FINLAND - OCT 23, 2015
[2015-10-16] Kullankeltainen, samea, luonnonvaalea vaahto. Tuoksu kirpeä, hapan ja hieman hiivainen. Maku on kirpeä ja erittäin hapan. Suutuntuma on voimakkaan hiilihappoinen, runko vahvuuteen nähden täyteläinen.
