3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
10% Oude lambik? Had to give this one a try. Coming after sampling a couple stellar fruit lambics from Cantillon, the contrast was huge. Very light on carbonation a virtually no head. Deep gold appearance. Sweet aroma with honey, toffee, and complex Brett fruitiness and dusty bite. Huge body and sweetness for a lambik. There is no mistaking this for less than its strength. The acidity is there with a nice vinous touch, but the body and sweetness (toffee and honey again) almost completely obscure it. Light boon farmyard character sharpening things up but pretty mellow. Smooth stuff overall. Warming in the finish. This is like the barley wine of the lambic family. A true keeping beer.

Buono al naso, molto interesssante, pero troppo acetilico e fastidioso a lungo andare.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, as Boon to be Wild
Hazy amber color, with a distinctive fine perlage. The aroma is very wild indeed, also pervasive, full and fulfilling, moldy cellar, with old timber beams and barrels...
The body is strong and quite round, with malt and strong Bretts flavor; there is some residual sweetness, and a light fruity touch; also a very nice vinous touch; the sourness is not aggressive. There is also some alcohol presence, and this is probably the only note out of tune here.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A Mes rate. Tap at the amazing Brasserie 4:20
A superb looking straight lambic. Slightly hazy solid gold body with a perfect lick of a white head. This is just about the best straight lambic I’ve had. I can’t believe it’s 10%. It’s so soft yet punishingly sharp at the same time. My god, I could get messy on this, like really quickly. There is an amazing hit of something that I can only describe as strawberries and cream. Huge kick of aggressive sourness in the initial flavour, a big warm cuddle in the finish. This is a stellar beer. Easy the best from Boon. Looking at the rest of the rates either I am mental or this is much better than it has been elsewhere. Amazing.
