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.

cladinshadows (49) - USA - JAN 1, 2013
2012 bottle thats been sitting around for a few months. Cork comes out readily. The aroma of this beer is an experience on its own - apple, hay, lemon rind, and a pronounced herbal funk (including some lightstruck character). Deep gold in color with a slight haze. This particular bottle was unusual because it raised a substantial head of foam that lasted. Taste follows the aroma with a nicely balanced acidity. Apple peel, lemon rind, grain, hay, and an intriguing funk. A fantastic balance of each individual character. Prickly carbonation. Mouthfeel is appropriately dry and champagne-like. Possibly not the most "challenging" gueuze, but probably my favorite for its balance of funk, fruit, and acid.

Aminatchime (30) - BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2016
Donker gele kleur met kleine witte schuimkraag. Het bier heeft een sterke geur die mij doet denken aan een paardenstal. Ook de geur van hooi komt sterk naar voren. In de smaak komt vooral graan naar boven. Het bier is heel sterk en scherp zuur. Op het einde is het bier heel droog.

Deser (11) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle at home. Lovely hazy golden body with almost soap like foam. Dont think soap just yet because this a really good oude geuze with aromas of apple, cask sour and some vanilla, as well as others I can not describe. This beer flows in softly, then attacks you behind the tongue just to slide away smoothly afterwards. Amazingly long aftertaste. Tasted with some moderate spicy food, more than good.

spechtacular (112) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
W aromacie głwnie białe winogrona. W smaku przede wszystkim dzikość, rwnież winogrona i cytrusy. Wytrawne i gładkie. Gueuze na wysokim poziomie.

asheft (3026) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2016
[Bottle] Sour white grape and cranberry aroma, with faint sulfur and tons of stone fruit. Almost clear orange gold under a soda fizz that drops immediately. Skye Sour stone fruit flavour with white grape and cranberry accents and a not insignificant bitterness. Medium light body medium high carbonation, mouth puckering.

bonev (519) - POLAND - NOV 20, 2016
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 (1773) - 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.

guzgorog (784) - FRANCE - OCT 27, 2016
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 (3771) - 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.
