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.

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze pomaranczowo czerwonym z niezbyt obfita biala sredniopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie owoce cytrusowe i dzikosc ze stajni, czuc winogrona i ocet. W smaku raczej wytrawne i kwasne, sa zielone jakbla i taki smak "starosci". Bardzo gladkie z wysyceniem na dosc wysokim poziomie, smak bardzo szybko rozprzestrzenia sie w ustach bombardujac dzikimi kwasnymi owocami. Przepyszne!

Korcz (936) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 31, 2016
2013 vintage. Na pewno czołwka najlepszych gueuze jakie piłem. Wytrawne, mega brettowe, z kwasowością idąca w stronę VAT-w od Boon. Wyśmienite.

Tout dabord, il fut tre amateur de gueuze (ce qui nest pas tout fait mon cas) pour apprcier cette bire, elle nest pas vraiment facile daccs, et il faut quelques gorges pour apprhender lacidit et lastringence, mais aprs cest que du bonheur comme dirait lautre (con). Donc robe blonde tirant vers lambre, haute mousse blanche dune bonne tenue. Nez cidre, boise, terre. Premire bouche sur lacidit et le cidre, pomme verte, le raisin et le bois arrivent en seconde bouche pour un final quilibr. Superbe carbo, belle longueur, forte acidit, longueur interminable, corps lger. Bire excellente qui se mrite.

hackobock (3678) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2016
October 23, 2016. Bottle at home, 2016 vintage.
Light hazy dark orange with a small frothy white head. Aroma is fruity and funky with a good amount of fresh green apples, lemon juice, some grape notes, hay, barnyard, leather and light spiciness. Taste is sour, funky and fruity. Finish is lingering sour apple cart, lemon, dry oak notes, leather, barnyard and a light peppery note. Medium bodied, quite oily mouthfeel, smooth carbonation.
Great, fresh and quite fruit forward compared to older ones Ive tried.

aleigator (831) - GERMANY - OCT 17, 2016
Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a fluffy big head, which receeds to a thick, stable lacing, coating the beer easily the entire time. There is even a thick head on the rest of the beer remaining in the bottle. Smells of a prominent funkiness, old mushrooms and lots of ripe blue cheese, with a pleasant mix of minerals and lime zest to balance the barnyard qualities. Lime and apple rind grow even more apparent, once the beer reaches room temperature making the fruitiness an ingedient just as prominent as the funk. Has a very soft, yet vivid mouthfeel with an awesome flavor development, starting crisp and light with a creamy, funky ending. Very well pronounced as for its sourness while leaving enough room on the palate for the fruit and effervescence to cut through, creating a pleasant complexity. Tastes of stony minerals, a soft aqueous note, old bread crust, wet straw and a prominent funkiness. The funk consists of dried grass, creamy blue cheese and wet mushrooms, together with a note of flowers to sooth the funk profile. Has a bright, lemony and slightly effervescent mid palate, which results in a mushroomy dustiness and more creamy cheese. An awesome beer, producing a mind blowing depth of funk, gently balanced by the fruity crispness. Does not have too many more layers to it other than that, but thos truly convince by their pungent ripeness. Maintains it light and refreshing mouthfeel though, ending clean and soft.

stevoj (4168) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle from last nights share. Pours out a hazy orange tone with a small soapy head. Sourness leads the aroma, dry woody elements, and some apple. Taste brings in more sourness, light and fizzy feel, as is right for the style. Finishes with a pucker.

vincentvega72 (462) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2016 Mooi goudblond bier met parelende witte schuimkraag. Zurig aroma (witte wijn, azijn, beetje appeltjes). Heerlijk fris-zuur in de mond, lekker parelend en blijft goed plakken met een goeie droge warme afdronk. Appel, citroen, redelijk vineus, beetje hout. Goeie gueuze !!
