couchand (182) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Crystal straw with gold tints, loads of carbonation, thick moussy head, medium-sized bubbles. Delicate acidic, cidery, light vinegar, light horsey aroma. Clean lactic flavor, strong bitterness. Somewhat simple flavor. Lively palate, somewhat cloying. Allright, I’ve had better Boon.

cheap (4881) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 My mouth starting watering the moment I opened the box when I got this from puzzl in a trade. Beautiful pour, cloudy beige with very little yellow. Sour appetizing aroma. Very nice tingly palate. Delicious sour initial flavors overwehlm the taste buds. Enjoyable and refreshing as with most real lambics. Wow what an experience! Has much more alky in it than I am familiar with most lambics, 8%. However it hides the alky content well. The only thing I didn’t care for in this brew was the apparent bitter lingering aftertaste, which by the way, was not really that bad, just noticeable. Overall I want to say this beer rocks and I owe puzzl big for this selection. Lovely, reminds me a bit of cantillon iris.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a large white head that fades leaving some lacing. Aroma of tart lemons, green apple, and some yeasty brett goodness. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness, moderate acidity, and very well hidden alcohol.

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
[1156-20080301] Bottle. Boozy grainy petrol yeast aroma with a bit of bread. Clear, medium orange brown body with quick white bubbles. Boozy astringent yeast flavour has petrol characteristics. Medium body is sour. Interesting to try and well-blended, good example of a par+ geuze.
