rbfishstick (141) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Enjoyed via a bottle from the cellar. Pours a hazy orange gold with a medium white head with some lacing. Smell is very acidic with a slight sulfuric tinge. Taste also has some of that same sulfur/natural gas edge but tart, almost salty and very sour. It is also so sour it almost feel like it is dehydrating you and has a dryer finish as well with a tart, grapefruit juice and milk combo finish. A very complex beer to taste - a lot going on here.

Koperkleur met witte schuimkraag. Geur: hout, zurig, lichtjes citrus. Smaak: lekkere malse fijne zurigheid met wat citroen. Weinig volmondig en sprankelend. Afdronk: droog zurig.

thellgren (688) - 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 (81) - FRANCE - MAY 3, 2016
Amertume très prononcée, robe pale et trouble. On est sur le boisé, la pomme. Atypique, prestigieuse, complexe.

Speko (117) - 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.

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.

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 :)
