Oude Geuze Boon is one of the finest examples of the traditional 100% spontaneous fermentation Lambic style. To moderate the sourness, Boon Brewery only brews Lambic in the 7 cold months, from early October until April, according to the traditional "turbid mash" system. This Lambic beer is aged for 1, 2 or 3 years in oak casks. The blend, a mild average 18 months old Lambic (unsweetened, unfiltered, unpasteurised) is refermented in the bottle and can be stored up to 20 years. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name. Awards at the World Beer Championships: 2008 Gold, 2010 Silver, 2012 Gold Medal.

Pours a slightly colored golden brown with a big head that receeds somewhat quickly. Smell is extremely sour with a strong yeast presence. Flavor is not as sour as I would have expected considering this is the first gueuze I have ever had and that the nose was so sour toned. This is actually extremely drinkable and I like it quite a bit. It is thinner on the mouth and not very heavy at all.

375 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark gold to light copper under a nice soap sud like fluffy white head that left lots of heavy lacing. The aroma does indeed reveal Oude Gueuze. A nice horseblankety, lightly cheesy funkiness, raw oak, light vinegar, acidity and metallic notes. The flavor is quite tart and acidic with vinegar, over-ripe green apple, bready yeasty notes, and citrusy grapefruit. Finishes with a musty cork and cellar funk that lingers quite a while. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with spritzy champagne like carbonation. A lingering, almost white wine like, dry oak and peppery finish. Overall, pretty solid, almost tastes a little young.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 Orange mist with silky suds. Spritzy and sourish. Dribble-making oak/sherbety fruit aroma. Tangy lemon, mouldy tangerine, a touch of G+T dryness. Nothing like as harsh or acidically sour as some of the Oude Geuzes out there. Mellow and wheaty after the swallow. Really enjoyable.

Amber of color with an off-white head. A sour aroma with notes of wheat and hints of spice. A flavor of sourness and wheat, no sweet notes. quiet nice.

What a gastly brew - far beyond sourish this ale has a aroma and flavour dominated by puke. Maybe I had an infected bottle, but Im not out for a retake...

Pours an opaque cider color with a massive sour aroma. I can smell it right now and it’s sitting next to me on my desk about 2 feet away. The flavor is more so tart than sour with an interestingly mellow aftertaste.

totally fascinating link to one of the most unusual brewing styles ever created. Pours a murky burnt orange with typically massive belgian head, gradually dissapating to a thin foam with intricate lacing. Immediately upon nosing the lambic one is introduced to a number of idiosynchratic scents: vinegar, leather, strong lemon all start off strong, and a slight malt presence can be detected. The palate shifts quite dramatically, intensely sour, then bitter, then finishing rather dry with a citrus kick and a spritzy body. Totally unusual and not for the average beer drinker, but for those with an adventurous palate it’s more than worth the price of admission.

Bottle, with Fin, Loz and Traci. Yellow/amber, white head. Lemon, horse blanket, menthol, apple skin, nettle--a big, evocative aroma. Intense lemon flavor, aggressive sourness tranistions to a lingering quinine finish. The palate is perfection--so light and airy it almost evaporates off your tongue. What a nice beer. The heartburn was worth it. Thanks Fin!
