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.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2004
Golden beer with a musty nose. Very dry and sour with a grapefruit/lemon character and a tongue-strippingly acidic finish with some bitterness. Superb traditional stuff. (Bar Fringe, Manchester)

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - APR 22, 2004
Vintage 2000-2001.
Pours a cloudy orange body with a nice foamy head. Aroma is sour from the wild fermentation with obvious notes of grapefruit. Falvor is quite sour but not as tart as many other Gueuzes. Again notes of grapefruit. A smooth and complex gueuze! Refreshing.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2004
Bottle 05.02.22. Pours to a hazy light copper gold color with a small, white head. Aroma is tart, slightly earthy and mossy. Flavor is very tart, yeasty, almost fruity. It seems to me like it would benefit from being aged a bit longer. I am really beginning to love Geuze.

BearBrewer (86) - New York, east village, New York, USA - APR 7, 2004
I almost took my eye out with the cork. Pours a beautiful straw color with a big fizzy white head. Nose of champagne, grass and fruit. Tart, earthy and crisp tatsing. Nice clean finish, went wonderfully with NZ green lipped mussels

JagerQueen (123) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2004
Very pretty golden color, slight white head with lots of pretty bubbles acsending from the bottom of the glass. Sharp, heady aroma-slightly champagne-like. Taste is tangy and spicy, very pleasing to a geuze lover. Finishes clean, doesn't linger.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 5, 2004
Shimmering gold color with fizzy head & lacing. The aroma is very barny with brettanomyces & light vinous qualities. Peppers and spice along with other complexities cover the tongue with balanced sweet & tart. Very tasty and artisinal.

skaughty (645) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2004
Poured darker (orange) than expected, but with all the planned effervescence. The aroma hinted at the tartness that would come. Flavor was pure, with a predominance of pear and green apple, especially lively mouthfeel and a clean drying finish. Good Geuze!

madsberg (10308) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 2, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Beige dense head. Lasting. Well sweetened aroma, that mingle nicely with the normal geueze sourness. Has a light fruity flavour with some sour notes. Has a ligth tarty aftertaste. Not the best, but pretty good.

larsniclas (5635) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2004
Bottled. Golden with a white head. Really sour aroma with notes of diesel. Harsh and champagne-ish palate. Really sour and surprisingly bitter.

Sigmund (5179) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2004
(750 ml "champagne" bottle, vintage 1997-98). Pours with an enormous lasting head. Cloudy golden colour. Lovely aroma of sour fruits, notes of spices and horse stable. Flavour is fruity, sour but not vinegar, a little tart. Quite dry. Reminds me of a brut champagne. Moreish aftertaste. Yummy!
