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.

mariuspoenari (1821) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
37cl bottle. Hazy orange pour with a tall white head. Smells like sodium bicarbonate, sulphur, barnyard funk and apple cider. The taste is more balanced than the white label, with notes of apple cider, vinegar, salt, sodium bicarbonate and barnyard funk. High carbonation with a dry and bitter finish. This stuffs actually good!

Kauge (1649) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2016
Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Poured hayish orange with white head. On the nose its sugary sweet and apple cidery, acidic fruity, tastes of apple cider and stone fruit sweetness, finishing in strong apple seed bitterness, and almost lime juice acidity. Dry and dusty, yet extremely crisp on the palate. Stickiness restrained. Would love this paired with the unfiltered one. Probably perfect in summer at some garden party. Wouldnt dare drink more than 1 small bottle though, I dont have guts of steel unfortunately.

ebone1988 (1473) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is funky and sour, barnyard, dusty, dry, straw, really good. Appearance is amber golden, off white head, somewhat hazy. Taste is funky, grape skins, tart, barnyard, almost wine-like in its tannins. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, grape skins and tannins aftertaste. Overall, this one is real good.
