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.

Bottle. Slight hazy yellow with a fine white head. Aroma is sour and citric along with apples, freshness and at the same time old age and something forgotten. Sour flavour with apples and a fresh, sparkling bitter touch. Super beer!

37.5cL bottle. Pours a golden-orange color (becomes cloudy at the second pour); white head with excellent retention and lacing. Very generous, tart aroma: sour citrus, barnyard funk, yeast. Sour, slightly acidic mouthfeel: lemony citrus, very tart, hints of cheese, herbs, and straw; lively carbonation. Lengthy finish showing lemons and lingering yeast. Quite good.

Bottle at Delirium Cafe. Brave and intense gueuze, has got everything I look for in the style. Great.

Wow how do I describe the tart. Pours a dark yelloe orange. Nice big head that fizzzez away but leaves a nice lacing. The smell is herball, lemony, and citrous peel. The taste is some what woody, sour plum, grapefruit, champagne similarity, but not as dry. The complexity of this beer is new for me reminds me of the saisin stlye whic I didnt like mipuch at first, and now I do. This is my first of this stlye but will try more of these.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2006
375 ml bottle at the Map Room. Hazy golden colour with a fully lasting fizzy and frothy off-white head. Chessy, yeasty, tart, cobweb, horseblanket, and barnyard aroma. Complex combination of sour and tart yields to brie, other soft cheeses and yeast flavours. Very dry and refreshing mouthfeel. Great beer, but somehow I expected more.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2006
Amber body with a biiig head. Tarty and cheesy aroma. Amazing tartiness, cheezy hops and grassy body. Finishes with acid and much hay.

pintocb (654) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Wow. So sour. I love it. Smells like raisins, fresh bread and rotten sour apples?!? (in a good way) Lots of sour fruit taste. Some biscuit. Lovely.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2006
From the bottle pours amber/gold, very clear, with a white head. Sourness was very subtle compared to many of the gueuze ive had. Lots of great wild funk, dry straw, must, tart fruits. Sourness and acidity didnt try to take away anything from this beer, actually very crisp and refreshing.

pubbe (493) - Hjbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2006
Bottle at Horsens Beerfestival. This is on h.... of an geuzeresque geuze. Huge levels of dried fruits and acid. Carbonationlevel like champagne and a finish lasting the rest of the evening. Dry, dry and dry. As beautiful as it is impossible to finish off yourself. Perfect New Years Eve brew.

haukur (1848) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - NOV 11, 2006
Tarty aroma, candy apples, floral and gras notes. Acidic and tarty taste, with hints of malts, incredible citrus and orange. Classic and classy, this is very refreshing. Perhaps the most easy to drink gueuze considering the tartyness Ive tasted so far. Outhouse, hey and grass, a world class lambic!
