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Frank Boon writes: Foeder # 10 was originally made for "Brauhaus Nurnberg" in Nurnberg, Germany in +/- 1890.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.

fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, as Boon to be Wild
Hazy amber color, with a distinctive fine perlage. The aroma is very wild indeed, also pervasive, full and fulfilling, moldy cellar, with old timber beams and barrels...
The body is strong and quite round, with malt and strong Bretts flavor; there is some residual sweetness, and a light fruity touch; also a very nice vinous touch; the sourness is not aggressive. There is also some alcohol presence, and this is probably the only note out of tune here.

A Mes rate. Tap at the amazing Brasserie 4:20
A superb looking straight lambic. Slightly hazy solid gold body with a perfect lick of a white head. This is just about the best straight lambic Ive had. I cant believe its 10%. Its so soft yet punishingly sharp at the same time. My god, I could get messy on this, like really quickly. There is an amazing hit of something that I can only describe as strawberries and cream. Huge kick of aggressive sourness in the initial flavour, a big warm cuddle in the finish. This is a stellar beer. Easy the best from Boon. Looking at the rest of the rates either I am mental or this is much better than it has been elsewhere. Amazing.
