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.

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.

ineedbeer (881) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 3, 2014
375 ml bottle with a cork date of HX 2014. Aroma is really nice with a balanced amount of acidity and citrus with a medium light woodsy, herbal character. Light tropical fruit notes with moderate barnyard, horse blanket character. Really nice aroma. Pours a slightly cloudy, golden orange with a big, rocky, white head that recedes fairly quickly. Flavor has a moderately strong acidity with light citrus notes and a hint of acetic acid. Light tropical fruit and a touch of a weird phenolic, herbal note. Moderate barnyard funk, but lighter than in the aroma. Light oak notes Medium light herbal, woodsy, earthy character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice beer. If the flavor could catch up to the aroma this would be amazing, but right now it is just really good.

37.5 CL bottle, Bierkoning. Amsterdam. A sweet nose. White wine, hints of vinegar, fruits. Taste is quite sweet, wine like but with a slightly sour finish. It is quite well balanced but not one of my favourite Geuzes.
