COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A special keg only "single foeder strong lambic". 100 kegs produced.

Frank Boon writes: Foeder # 10 was originally made for "Brauhaus Nurnberg" in Nurnberg, Germany in +/- 1890. The staves are 90 mm thick and the content is 6800 lit. It survived the destruction of Nurnberg in WW II because it was shipped to France for wineaging in Gigondas. Ten years ago it came to Boon Brewery, it had 4 times Lambic and in 2007 it was used for a strong Lambic to age for 3 years. One american lady that tasted it said it was "Boon to be Wild". Maybe a good name to use.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Orange og tåget. Næsten ingen skum. En smule frugt i næsen - overraskende. Sur og flad - smager meget gammel.

As Boon To Be Wild, six year old keg at Belgium Chimipalooza. Exceptionally strong old lambic with, due to refermentation in the keg, an egg-white, moussy head and misty amberish orange blonde colour. Complex, funky and (as is typical for old lambic) ’restrained’ aroma of sour plum, unripe gooseberry, stale sweat, wet wood, old sherry, moldy lemon, sourdough, dry white wine, bitter orange. Soft, complexely estery onset, very fruity, lactic tartness with a thin and subdued lemony edge, gooseberry and green plum flavors, sherryish, soapy wheat and bready barley backbone, soft and creamy mouthfeel, vinous, drying wood in the end with, in spite of the ABV which is huge for a lambic, well-hidden alcohol. Great and impressive lambic in every sense, very noble and ’artistocratic’ in its old character and distinguished restraint, glad I got a chance to sample this.

Besöjad gyllengul öl med ett mycket lätt vitt skum. Doft av gröna äpplen, syra och lättare funkighet. I smaken tillkommer citrus, vitvinstoner och lite hö.

Bigger Copenhagen bimble with Colin, Ronnie, Reuben and Alex. Mikkeller Vik. Keg. Lightly hazy amber beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is light and finely minerally crisp. Immediate wet wood with mild lemon and dried fruits. Wood goes from wet to a little bitter. Dry finish. Clean and hides the abv well.
