Pailhead (4808) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma initially is very tart and sour with lots of lemon. Once you get past that there is a moderate fruitiness and light yeastiness. Pours a transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze and a nice white head that lasts a minute or so. Sour/tart flavors are very subdued. Moderate woodiness. Finishes with some light acidity and a light flowery bitterness. Regular version is much better.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 27, 2006
If itís possible for something to smell sour and fresh at the same time this beer has acheived such a sensation in my nostril. This one is not a particularly cloudy bottle for some reason. In fact, the only thing interrupting the smooth amber color are the constant bubbles which give the palate a pleasant kick. The flavor of the beer is (as expected) very sour. There is the slightest metallic edge at the finish but it doesnít last. But compared to the other two Boon Geuzes Iíve tasted, Iíd say this one is the fruitiest. There is definitely a lot of lemon. This is a very dry, very tart beer. I love it. It needs food though. Iím not sure what food... I think this would go really well with a green salad and some bleu cheese. Iím going to say this is my favorite of the Boon Geuzes

Clear, straw colored body with a frothy white head. Musty, barnyard aroma with some green apple. Very dry up front, with some major oak notes and tartness that resembles granny smith apples. Light acidic vineagar note before the dry, woody finish.

Bottle: Golden, slightly dirty and cloudy, large white frothy head, fairly nice lacing, very strong carbonation. † Tart floral nose, wheaty, smells fantastic. † Moderately tart up front, quite dry, long lingering wheaty sourness, woody. † Fairly clean, slight citrus sweetness on the exit that includes a little bit of rind, remains fairly woody. † Big in body, nice airy/bubbley mouthfeel. † Very enjoyable.

JonMoore (1858) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2006
Clear effervescent gold with a large white head. Sour apples, cider like aroma. Strong tart fruity flavour, nicely sour with noticable alcohol in the finish. Some background barnyardyness. Champagne like, but of course much better. Very good.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Thanks to Eyedrinkale for bringing and sharing this.

Not sure of the vintage, but definitely an old bottle, likely by several years. Poured an effervescent golden with a white head. Tart farmhouse aroma. Taste is horse blanket and lots of dry toffee; not a whole lot of sourness to this one. Definite dusty character as well. Very drinkable lambic.

harrisoni (13704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2013 375ml bottle from Pitfield Beer Shop. Hazy gold colour with thin white head. Sourness is evident with lemon and grapefruit and a bit farmyardy. Some nice citric hop. Alcohol gives the sourness balance in mouth, but doesnít suffer from any burn. Finish has some sourness and dryness. Good lemon and grapefruit finish. Enjoyable 3.9/5.0 I must have been off my tits in 2005, this is so much better than a 3.9. Lemon farmyard aroma, just more or less perfect in mouth. Bitter, sour hoppy finish. Gorgeous.
