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.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2008
This pours out with a slightly hazy orange body that practically glows in the glass. A light white head forms and then fades to a mist resting on top, and at the sides of the glass, soapy bubbles remain. The aroma is striking. It is incredibly sour with layers of rotten apples, unripe pears, cheese rind, and pepper. Nice tart flavor is puckering. Lemons, oak, acidic, and a slight bitterness in the finish. Perfect body with a lingering aftertaste. Pretty much amazing.

Aroma: stal en paard, muffig en toch zurig. De smaak is zeer rond en fruitig voor een geuze, maar deze wordt onmiddellijk gecounterd door een droog mondgevoel. Complexe afdronk.

Zilverenmaan (127) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2017
Cloudy ( yeast residue not sticking to the bottom), amber, small head. Aroma tart, dry leaves, bread, a bit of yeast. Taste a very soft, pleasant tartness, fruity, perfectly balanced with some bitterness and a slight astringent mouthfeel. Aftertaste with hints of grapefruit. Bottom of bottle containing most of the yeast more fruity. Perfectly balanced to my taste: neither acidity bitterness or dryness dominating yet very tasty.
