Nicko (223) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2009
Bottle courtesy of eczematic, Ratebeer tasting under the Bridge 12/9. My second lambic, much more to my liking than the faro. Sour aroma of apples and citrus. Flavour offers the expected sourness along with a fresh sweetness and a sparkling palate.

highlandlad (1477) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2009
A cracking, tastebud-jangling gueuze. A funky dance party. Tart, refreshing, cheesy, woody... Marmalade on acid. Zinging finish. Loved this. Comfortably the best Boon I’ve had to date. (Bottle courtesy of Ecze - thanks buddy - at the Sep 2009 ’Drunk in the Park’ gathering at Milsons Point)

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2009
hazy golden pour with slight white head, fairly standard appearance. Aroma is woody, tanic, earthy, slightly musty, slight sulfur, decent tartness coming through in the aroma. Wow, really bitter! Not pleasant at all. Rubbery, tanic, bitter, bitter, bitter. Really bitter hop like finish. Very poor.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Thanks to pghlee for this 750mL bottle, 2003 vintage. Pours a perfectly clear golden amber with a big bubbly white head that recedes slowly to a thin cover and leaves delicate lacing. The aroma is tart but still fairly sweet with lemons and even some green apples in the nose. There is a bid of vinegar sourness and a hint of earthy barnyard, though it’s very subtle. The taste starts out with a bretty kick that is more than the aroma suggested - definitely some cheese and horse blanket funk. The backbone is light malts with tons of the tart lemony fruit. The finish is dry and slightly acidic with the funk coming back in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is light bodied, despite the slightly higher ABV, dry and extremely refreshing. This is a decent gueuze that has more complexity in the flavor than the nose, with the funky starting to show itself. I imagine it’ll get even bigger over time. It’s very drinkable and the funky and sourness is not overpowering.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2009
Poured a cloudy orange with a thin head. Complex in flavour and aroma. You could pick all sorts out of here. Aroma of farmers mac, grapefruit, lemon. Very refreshing. The stronger than usual alcohol is not noticeable to me. Manages to be full of flavour without being as tart and sour as many others in it’s class. Lovely.

Bottled 375ml. Vintage 2005. Aroma: Tart with lemon, grapefruit, horse blanket, sorbet, light vinegar, brett and vanilla showing up.

A lot of lemon, brett and grapefruit showing up which are accompanied by horse blanket. Great hops detectable. Some white grapes, vanilla and vinegar sneaking in. Complex. The alcohol is nicely hidden. Long dry finish which is reminiscent of lemon peel, dandelion and grapefruit. Overall impression: A fantastic brew. Beautiful, extremely pleasant and complex.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Bottle thanks to gerrit. Pours a clear orange yellow with a small head. Dirty nose earthy funky on the side of cheese funk. Earthy grainy flavors with citrus, grapefruit rind, and alcohol. Bitter earthy and dirty finish that’s not that enjoyable. The pieces just don’t fit together too well.

375ml 2003 bottle. Pours yellow with little to no lacing. Aroma of green apples, banana, and peach. Nice funk up front with a fairly mellow tart to finish. Very good Geuze.

Tap @ SDBF’09(cask #52). Light orange pour. Definitely the most unique lambic of the day. This was different to the point of weird.
