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. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly but laces well. Aroma is yeast, tart citrus, white wine, wood, funk. Flavor same, medium sour with a sour lingering finish. Very nice gueuze.

W aromacie i smaku gospodarsko, stajennie, dojrzałe jabłka, bretty, nuty dzikie, wytrawnie i intensywnie. Z wyglądu brzoskwiniowe, mętne, piana biała, zbita, ładna. Pijalność wysoka, ciało średnie. Ogólnie całkiem przyjemne guezue

Green apple, tart gives way to something bitter, hoppy, slightly leathery even, adding some dimensionality. Very full bouquet. Good 1!

Ojej, tak wysoko? A za co? Aromat ładny, białe grono, pestki, przyprawy, stajni mało, zaledwie musnięcie w tle. Pasuje. W smaku za to spora pestkowość i chmielowa goryczka o wiele na mój gust za wysoka jak na styl. Dzikości niewiele, lekko skórzane nuty w tle, zdecydowanie więcej owocowośći. Nic olśniewającego, piło się lepsze gueuze.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2017 Klassisk gueuze i næsen. Kælder og funk. Til den flade side i glasset. Fuld krop, sur og helt fantastisk.

This is one if my favorite sours. Crisp and balanced. Would drink it every day if I could.

You can smell the funk throughout the room as soon as the cork pops. Pours a dark bronze and caramel colour. Smell is among the funkiest I've ever smelled, fermented hay and barnyard, chicken coop, smells bone dry and weird. Enormous mouth coating funky barnyard flavours, earthy, incredibly dry, a tart acidity but gentle, not sharp or sour. I am privileged to drink such a fine fermentation.

Bottle, vintage 2016. Pours dark golden, with a big creamy head. Aroma is tart wooden brett and hay, with nice funky barnyard notes. Medium body, with average carbonation. Flavour is tart lactic notes, hay, barnyard and wooden brett, as well as wooden barrels and earthy notes.

Piepenhenrich (1195) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2017
After releasing the cork from the bottle, first sour aroma. Pours golden-amber, slightly hazy. First impression is very sour, then bitter and sour, later a more complex blend of sour fruity elements, a hoppy bitterness and some earthy flavors from fermentation sets in. Certainly not for everybody, but from an official Gueuze afficionado, this has to rank among some of the best beers at all. Top notch!

Poured from a bottle, a hazy gold color not much of a head. Aroma is light fruit , slightly sour. Carbonation is light. A tart fruit taste, medium body with a tart finish.

Poured from a bottle. Medium haze hay color, no real head. Nice light sour aroma. Medium body with a nice sweet flavor, tart accents with a nice finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
