Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle at the Funky Buddha Lounge in Boca Raton. Split it with my friend Gail. Pours a hazy light color with a small head. Some lacing. Aroma of sour apples and white grapes. The taste was apple, pear, white grapes with a sour tartness. Not overly tart, but kind of a mix of tart and slight sweetness. Well carbonated. Light and refreshing. 2009 vintage.

thellgren (684) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2016
0.33 l bottle @ One Pint Pub, Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Appearance is white wine with big head. Taste is very complex (compared to Boon’s standard gueuze). At first you’ll have the usual Boon’s tannins and wood from the oak casks. Sipping on, you’ll have also wild strawberries, kind of dry strawberries. Sound strange, but this is very complicated beer. Tannins, and fruits.

BlueGaljoen (80) - FRANCE - MAY 3, 2016
Amertume très prononcée, robe pale et trouble. On est sur le boisé, la pomme. Atypique, prestigieuse, complexe.

Speko (116) - DENMARK - APR 29, 2016
2011 Bottle 0,375. Pours clear orange with large white head, good retention, lot of lacing. Sour white wine ish, fruits - citrus, apple, grapes, barnyard with a dry finish accompanied by notes of grapefruit. Fizzy carbonation, full body. Quite sour for my taste, could be good in upcoming summer days though.

2010 vintage. Cloudy golden, stable white head. Acetic aroma, sour apples. Flavour is sour, citric with some yeasty notes. Some rough, woody notes as well. Finishes tart and dry. Nice.

flying_pig (1362) - SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2016
2012 Vintage
375ml bottle from Whole Foods Market, Giffnock (£4.49):
This one was a pretty nice lambic from Boon, it started quite light on the nose with the usual sourness & some tart alongside a few grapes but things definitely picked up come the taste with a lot more acidity & funk coming through. It was quite an easy beer to drink with a nice balance to it & strong carbonation; a slight step up from the regular Boon Oude Geuze & a very nice beer overall.

rami_pl (1457) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 23, 2016
butelka, warka do 26.09.2034 (poltora roku po rozlewie?) n szybko: bardzo stajenno-skorzane w aromacie, troszke ogorkowo-kiszone, nieco owocowe (winogrona zielone / cytryna / biala porzeczka). w ustach duzo mniej funky, kwasne (mocno kwasne, na owocowy sposob), winne, ogorkowe, wytrawne, cierpkie nieco, alkohol schowany idealnie. Jedno z fajniejszych gueuze jakie pilem :)

Amarelo dourada, turva. Espuma branca, fina, pouco persistente. No aroma e no sabor, abacaxi, baunilha, vinagre de maçã, álcool. Notas de couro no aroma. Bem ácida, álcool presente.
