COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 Iv been gettin a bit gueuze’d at the moment so this was really good. Aroma of dry cider apples and white grapes and dry very dry. Taste is similar with more sourness than expected, very good indeed. RERATING: Same score as before, more hops than i thought possible in gueze but excellent after a 10 hour shift at work. RERATE: Quite a few bottles from the cave. Defo more acidic and sharper than i remember, very dry, like the dryest of all gueuze apart from perhaps it big brother. Monsterous carbonation, but as you drink it it changes into a whole new beast. The hoppiest of the lambics by a long stretch. Awsome stuff!

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Cloudy, hazy medium-orange body, thin-medium light beige head, tight bubbles. Sour, woody, musty aroma, with ever-present brie cheese rind. A bit fruity, too. Strongly woody body, the musty tannins delivering a bite more emphatic than that imparted by most other guezes I’ve tried. Tart and sour, with a touch of white grape. The sourness ends midway through the sip, leaving the woody, bitter (but not astringent) finish. Doesn’t quite deliver the puckering sourness I’m after but this is a very nice beer.

pineypower (2736) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Been wanting to try this style of lambic. Pours out a cloudy amber color with not much of a head, what was there was white. Aroma is very sour. Refreshign taste with a lingering citrus aftertaste, but I felt it was missing something, maybe I just don’t get this style of beer, none the less I can appreciate the flacor.

EKGoldings (616) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 Stoppered bottle. Pours with nice head and amber haze. Nice fruit on nose. Taste is sour, refreshing, nice mix of flavors with Brett horse blanket mixed in but not dominant. An excellent beer with a meal. Rerate: funky, a bit of nastiness that I’d call puke-like. Really disappointing this time.

harrisoni (15066) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2014 Bottle. Hazy orange/gold with thin white head. Sour nose. Good fruits in mouth with lemons and lime with more sourness. Finish is very dry with more lemon sourness. Good geuze. Very refreshing after a hard day at Notts beer festival. Farmyardy notes on nose.3.9/5 Re-rate 2003-2004. The aroma is really to die for, lemon sour, just phenomenal. That yeast is stunning. But rounded too. Slightly sweet, a bit like Girardin black label. Oh boy that is good.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2005
Really exciting style. Perhaps my favorite belgian style so far. Yum yum yum. The sour-ness is really pleasant. This beer is still not quite as sour as the un mixed lambic I had at the World Beer Festival, but it’s close. There are some really nice fruity notes here. Substantial head. Body is cloudy amber. Aroma of spice... This is really exciting stuff. I can’t wait to try more!

Tmoney99 (11908) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Bottle at The Comet in Cincy. Poured an amber color with a average fizzy head. Yeasty champagne aroma. Light body with lively carbonation. Light complex bitter flavor with a short finish. Very intersting brew.

Vintage 2001-2002. Another very nice gueuze. Long lasting head and wondefull color. The aroma you smell when the bottle popped open was sweet. Just my beer
